    Apple has some sense of Humor- Had to make make sure Kovacs was not the first

    Place calls using your Google Voice number rather than your mobile number - enter number directly, select a contact from your device's contacts, or call back any number in your history.
    • Send and receive text messages (SMS) from your Google Voice number.
    • Listen to voicemails and recorded conversations right on your device (allowing you to pause, rewind, or fast forward to any point within the message) - voicemails will also show the transcription of the message when available.
    • Mark messages as starred, attach notes to conversations, block/unblock senders, or delete conversations.
    • Easily search in your history by contact, message, or note.
    • Messages are stored on your device for offline access.
    • Composing notes and text messages can be done in landscape mode.
    • Quickly change various Google Voice account settings (call forwarding, do-not-disturb, message notifications, …) directly from within the application.
    • Automatic checking for new messages while the application is active.
    • Direct access to your device's contacts without needing to synchronize them with Google
    • All communication is done with the Google Voice website directly, no need to hand over your account information to a third-party.
    • Full support for fast app switching in iOS4 and high-resolution graphics for retina displays.
    • GV Connect stores your account password securely in your device's keychain for faster login when launching the application - communication is done via secure connections (SSL) to the Google Voice servers and no contact information (other than the contact's phone number which is required to place a call or send a message) is sent to Google. All operations are fully synchronized with your Google Voice account.

    for the records I am bypassing this app and waiting the the Original one to return.

    Kovacs created the original Google voice app on the app store that was pulled and caused all the controversy.

    He's the one that deserves all the props and sales.

    Thanks. You can send Kovacs a thank you note on my behalf. Like I said, I don't care. In this instance I am only interested in the end result, not how or what it took to get there, it's useless information.
