google-voice-iphoneApple is very strict about what apps it allows in the App Store and what not. Many times we see apps not getting approved for the App Store because they don’t comply with the App Store policies.

Google Voice gives you one phone number for all your phones, voicemail as easy as email, and many calling features for free.

Yesterday, Apple removed the official Google Voice for iPhone app and as well as all those apps related to it. According to Apple, Google Voice apps had “duplicate features that come with the iPhone”.


Thanks to Sean Hovac, the developer of the GV Mobile app, has decided to release this app for free on Cydia.

Features of GV Mobile

  • Dial numbers (domestic for free and international at a variable rate) via the iPhone’s address book or typing in on the keypad

  • Add, delete, enable, or disable the phones that Google Voice forwards calls to
