Update 2: It looks like the free price is back. It was Apple’s fault, apparently. Mr. Kovacs just tweeted:
Here’s the deal…once it goes free (within 30min), I’ll give it an hour or so before flipping it back. I think that’s fair enough.
And, more recently:
iTunes on computer says FREE for me now.
I’m getting the same thing on iTunes as well. I still think the application is more than worth the $2.99 price, but get it while it’s hot, folks!
Update: And it looks like it’s over; people, myself included, are now seeing the $2.99 price being displayed, both on the Mobile App Store and the computer version. Sorry to those of you who didn’t get it, but trust me: it’s worth the price!
Possibly an attempt to get the app up in the ranking, developer Sean Kovacs has made the GV Mobile + app free, albeit for a very limited time.
The ‘original Google Voice app’ was re-released into the App Store only a short time ago, though it was beaten to the punch by another Google Voice client, which quickly gained popularity due to it being the first. Of course, even a month ago none of these apps existed. The reason why they are there now is because of Apple loosening the App Store regulations.
Good things don’t last, and the same is certainly true here. Sean Kovacs tweeted that:
~1AM EST it will go back to $2.99.
In other words, grab it now. Like, right now. For those of you not on 3.1.3 or later, he says to grab it via iTunes on the computer, and install it when you update.
