Official Google Voice App Goes To iPhone
 
 

Google has expanded its offering on the iPhone, its biggest mobile rival, by allowing all iPhone users to have the full Google Voice experience.

The search giant has recently launched the Google Voice app for iPhone. This means iPhone users can now place calls over their mobile data connection instead of using traditional voice calling.

Google did previously have a Google Voice offering for iPhone users, but it was a slimmed-down HTML5-based version of what was available on Android. The new app has all the same functionality as Android users.

These features include:

* Cheap rates for international calls
* Free text messaging to U.S. numbers
* Voicemail transcription
* Display your Google Voice number as caller ID when making calls

You'll also get notifications when your Google Voice account gets new voicemail or text messages, and the ability to have Direct Access Numbers, making the app act just like a normal phone.

The new Google Voice app is now available from the App Store. It's a free download for anyone running iOS 3.1 or later.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
