Official Google Voice App Now Available

The long-awaited official Google Voice application has finally made its way to the App Store, just two months after the first batch of unofficial Voice apps were approved. Google has been working on getting this app approved for over a year, and after its initial rejection, decided to remake it as an HTML5 web app to bypass Apple’s strict rules.

In September, Apple decided to relax their guidelines in effort to please the EU, who had begun an antitrust investigation into Apple’s policies. These changes have since allowed a number of previously reject-able apps into the App Store, such as Opera Mini, Skyfire, VLC, and more.

Google Voice is free, and uses data for SMS and calls, which makes it a great choice for budget-conscious users. The email-esque voicemail feature is especially handy (and doesn’t require you to change numbers).

  • Access your Google Voice account right from your iPhone.
  • Receive push notifications for new text or voicemail messages.
  • Send free text messages to U.S. numbers and make international calls at cheap rates.
  • Listen to your voicemail, read transcripts and manage your Google Voice inbox.
  • Display your Google Voice number as caller ID when making calls.
  • Call contacts from your iPhone Address Book or enter new numbers on the dialpad.
  • A Google Voice account is required to use this app. To sign up go to www.google.com/voice
  • Google Voice is only available in the United States.

In The News: Opera Mini for iPhone

The folks over at Opera Software can proudly add iPhone to the list of mobile phones supported with their mobile browser, Opera Mini. Opera Software recently submitted Opera Mini to the App Store for approval and while patiently awaiting it’s fate, knew that the chances of acceptance were mediocre at best. Apple does not often accept non-Safari based browsers such as Opera Mini into the App Store, however Apple chose to decline–surprisingly accept– the new mobile browser.

Opera Mini is also available on most other smartphones as well as the Nintendo DS. It’s not to be confused with Opera Mobile which is for use with regular cell phones.

A review of Opera Mini has been posted by iPod touch Fans’ user Jelly. You can find the review in the related links below.

Opera Mini Approved for iPhone

Opera Mini, a non-Safari based browser, is now available on the App Store for both iPhone and iPod touch.

The folks over at Opera Software can proudly add iPhone to the list of mobile phones supported with their mobile browser, Opera Mini. Opera Software recently submitted Opera Mini to the App Store for approval and while patiently awaiting it’s fate, knew that the chances of acceptance were mediocre at best. Apple does not often accept non-Safari based browsers such as Opera Mini into the App Store, however Apple chose to decline–surprisingly accept–the new mobile browser today! Opera Mini, free, is available on the App Store.

Opera Mini is also available on most other smartphones as well as the Nintendo DS. It’s not to be confused with Opera Mobile which is for use with regular cell phones.

With Opera Mini on the table, will you continue to use the Safari application or make the switch to Mini?
