Update to Google Voice kills Android 4.2 bug

Update to Google Voice kills Android 4.2 bug
On Tuesday, we told you about a problem with Google Voice that was happening on Android handsets running Android 4.2. Those with the new Google Nexus 4 or an updated Samsung GALAXY Nexus (GSM version only) running the latest build of the Android OS could not seem to send out any texts using Google Voice. Once the user started typing in the name of the recipient, Google Voice would force close.

Google sent out an update to the Google Voice app on Wednesday that clears up the problem. Available at the Google Play Store, Google Voice version 0.4.2.66 does away with those annoying f/c issues and allows you to get your text messages addressed and sent out. Pick up the reworked app for free from the Google Play Store, which you can get to by clicking on the sourcelink.

now that was fast...and an efficient update too!
unlike a certain fruit update which at first denies the bugs and when updates do roll out fixing old bugs, they bring new ones!

Just accept the update without bashing another company that has nothing to do with this bug please, there's enough flame wars on this website as it is -_-

This article had nothing to do with Apple but he couldn't resist trying to start another flame war.

You're right, f**king Dole needs to update its goddam pineapples. FFS, they're so susceptible to fruit flies. Talk about bugs, man.

Anyway, more seriously, I'm also surprised at how fast that update came along. I had hardly heard of the problem before it was fixed, heh.
