Apple allows Google Voice apps again

Just over a week ago there were new App Store review guidelines released by Apple which showed that the giant corporation was about to relax its rules for developers creating apps for iOS devices. Many of us wondered just how relaxed Apple would become but it seems the easing of restrictions is already taking place.

Google Voice apps had originally been allowed on the App Store but had then been banned because they supposedly duplicated iPhone features even though there were fundamental differences. However since the dramatic turnaround from Apple it seems things really are changing. Yesterday we heard that GV Connect had arrived in the App Store, bringing Google Voice to the iPhone and now today Samuel Axon over on Mashable , sourced from BGR, tells us that yet another Google Voice App has now been approved.

The developer of the GV Mobile + app, Sean Kovacs, said that the app had now been approved and went on Twitter to say that it will be coming. The cost will be $2.99, the same as GV Connect, and it will enable playback and transcription of voicemails plus call imitation along with many other features. It does seem then that Appleā€™s reversal in policy is set to be a good thing for many and hats off to Apple for realizing this.
