Google Voice App Returns to Apple’s App Store

GV Connect from Andreas Amann returned to App Store over the weekend after an extended Apple-imposed exile. Google Voice client apps had been banned from the App Store by Apple over claims that they duplicated the iPhone’s built-in phone functions.

GV Connect offers users an alternative to Google’s own Web-based Google Voice interface. It supports listening to messages left at your Google Voice phone number, sending and receiving SMS messages, managing Google Voice account settings, and more.

With GV Connect back on the App Store, other Google Voice client apps are likely on the way, too.

GV Connect is priced at US$2.99 and is available for download at Apple’s iTunes-based App Store.
