Google Voice now available as app in browser for iPhone, webOS
Getting around any objections that Apple might have, Google has launched a version of Google Voice that uses html5 for the iPhone and webOS devices. Using html5 provides for faster, richer web applications running in the browser. Instead of downloading the application from the App Store, Google Voice is available at from your mobile browser. It gives you all the functionality of the desktop version. Make calls, listen to your voicemail, send texts all from your cellphone's browser. You will need a Voice plan on your phone and a Google Voice account. If you don't have the latter, you can get an invite with this link. With the app, your Google Voice number will be seen on the outgoing caller ID, return calls will thus come right to your Google Voice number, and you can make International calls at low rates. If you have the iPhone or a webOS device and you have installed the app, let us know how it's working for you.

Yea because it's so convenient to do everything through your web browser, continue to log in and refresh to get your messages. Yea, this is so amazing. I've been doing this from a computer for months, I need an app on my iPhone, this is old news.

Posts: 33; Member since: Jul 28, 2008 whats your point? Do you even have a google voice number? I use it primarily for international calling. Was nice to have the app on my curve. Very nice to have it on my droid. Set to only dial when calling internationally. Free calling to Canada when Verizon charges $0.49/min or $0.10/min + $4/month.
