    I'm sure you've all heard about the new Voip features in Google's Google's GMail. If you haven't, take a look on CNet's article about it: http://news.cnet.com/8301-17939_109-20014734-2.html

    But I'm hoping that a developer can create an app that uses this feature of GMail (with hopes that Apple won't shoot it down

    Well, that's my idea, tell me what you think, or if you're a developer up to the challenge.

    I think google will probably make it part of their web app.

    But I still want an actual app (not web-based). But I'll wait and see how everything turns out. Everything always sets itself in place at the end.

    Yeah an actual app would be better, I'm wondering if you can use an existing VOIP client or would it have to made specifically for Gmail?

    From what I've tested and seen, it hooks up with your Google Voice account. I had a pre-existing one so it used that automatically. It will probably make you create a Google Voice account and activate a number when you try to make a call. Just go into GMail, click chat, then click phone call. You'll have to install a Google Chat add-on/app-type thingy though...

    But try it for yourself
