If you were watching last summer, Apple denied Google’s own Voice app to the iTunes App Store and subsequently removed all other Voice related apps as well. It created quite a controversy in the app world and many blogs were reporting on it. Well, Google decided to side-step the entire app approval process and release a web app for Safari on the iPhone. No Apple approval process to get in the way either. Just point your browser to http://m.google.com/voice and you’re done. You can even add a home page icon to your device (touch the + button).
As a Google Voice user I am still hopeful for a proper Voice app. However, since it’s been several months and there’s still nothing, not even a word of a possible approval for such an app, my hope is fading. This is especially the case now that Google has release a web app.
