As we all know, Google Voice client app is currently not available for non-jailbroken iPhone users. Both GV Mobile and Voice Central clients for Google Voice were available earlier for a short period, but then they were soon removed by Apple from the App Store due to "duplicating features that the iPhone comes with (Dialer, SMS, etc)". Later, the developer Sean Kovacs brought GV Mobile to Cydia. Consequently, it is now available for jailbroken iPhone users (with GV accounts) for free.

GV Mobile + 2.0

Unfortunately, the latest version GV Mobile + 2.0 is to be bought for a price. This is because the app has been completely re-written from the ground-up and includes lots of advanced new features. For those of you who are unaware, GV Mobile is an application that allows access to all the features of Google Voice through iPhone.

The new version includes tons of features: Favorites; New tab system for Contacts, Favorites and Keypad; Landscape SMS; Call & Add Contact from SMS main view; International support for SMS; Call, Text, & Add Contact from History; Voicemail transcriptions, new voicemail screen layout; Call, Text, & Add Contact from Voicemail; Local archiving of voicemail; Offline dialing (via dialing GV #); Default Area code; More data sync options (Interval, Startup, Startup on demand, manual); Multiple Accounts; User selectable tab to open Google Settings and so on.
