Google Voice is only available in The United States.
You must already have a Google Voice account in order for this application to work.
GV Mobile + brings the power of Google Voice to your iPhone.
GV Mobile + allows users of Google Voice to do the following with ease:
+picture messaging (2way with both parties using GV Mobile or just sending to others)
+dial numbers via the iPhone address book, entering on the keypad, or choosing from the internal favorites
+send, retrieve, and delete SMS messages
+retrieve and delete recent call history
+playback and delete voicemails
+take calls from different phones other than your iPhone
+enable, disable, add, or delete the phones that Google Voice forwards calls to
+much, much more
How does GV Mobile + work?
GV Mobile + initiates a secure connection with Google and sends a command to do various tasks (call, send sms, etc).
GV Mobile + communicates only with Google and application servers.
Please note that GV Mobile+ relies on the use of a data connection (3G, EDGE, Wifi, etc). If your data connection is weak, this app may not function properly.By using GV Mobile +, you understand that I am not liable for data charges you may incur.Any drastic changes on Google's end may make GV Mobile + inoperable.
iPad/iTouch users, READ:
This is not a VoIP/SIP dialer!
This means you can NOT make calls from your device without additional services (Gizmo, etc). Google Voice, the service offered, is not a voice over IP solution.
International Customers READ:
While this app is for sale in your country, you will not be able to make calls from your phone without additional setup (not provided by support). You can still send/receive SMS and other features using your Google Voice account with this application.

What's New in Version 2.6.5
+Fix issue with the phone number not showing in the recipient field after clicking the text action
Do not use if...
Half-baked product with only intention to sequester users into Google centric hub. While you must identify all intended callers by added them to Google contacs(mentioned somewhere already), outgoing call can only be accomplished by using one of the existing call methods.
One can blame companies like Micrsoft or Apple for sealing off their portal to make users dependent on it, Google is no less evil, yet with a broken broken product and now eing replaced by Google Hangouts.
Try out Hangouts and you will find same limitation with the same hungrer forcing users to give up freedom, except in Hangouts for iOS only, one can always use dialer to call. Message and history cleanup are still very cumbersome and messy.
Over all the app isn't bad it does need improvements. First it needs to auto load text messages automatically. It also needs a way to receive image and video massages. The constant errors need to go away. Copy and paste need to be more instinctive. Also making phone calls I'm told that odd numbers that aren't mine appear on the other side. Over all I wish this app functioned more like my iPhone with a separate phone number which is why I paid for this app.
Business and more!
I love Google voice and what it allows me to do, is it perfect-no, but it is pretty awesome. I use it as a business phone and my husband has used it to stay in contact when traveling even in other countries! It is a truly great resource and it helps me run my business quite well with privacy reliability and more
