Apple Finally Approves Google Voice App - GV Connect

Apple finally approves Google Voice App (the second time) and it is available on the iTunes store now here for $2.99 http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/gv-connect/id347835665?mt=8

GV Connect is a native iPhone/iPod Touch application for your Google Voice account. The app features the following:

  • Place calls using your Google Voice number rather than your mobile number.
  • Send and receive text messages (SMS) from your Google Voice
  • Listen to voicemails and recorded conversations right on your device (pause, rewind, fast foward)
  • Mark messages as starred, block senders, delete conversations
  • Set call forwarding, do-not-disturb), rediections
  • Retina displays

I suspect the FTC inquiry on Apple’s blocking of a native Google Voice app sparked the change.

Yep, Apple Apps bring in the bucks

From GigaOM comes this great graphic about the App Store economy.

When you work it out, however, if there are 28K developers making $175M, that works out to just $6.2K per developer.  Not bad, but don’t quit your day job.
