Google Voice comes to iPhone

It’s been a long and winding road, but today is the day: Apple have finally allowed Google Voice to be available on the App Store, after a full 16 months back and forth between the two communications giants. So you can now have it on your iPhone. Best of all, it’s free.

So what does the app give you then? Well the key features are the push notifications for text messages and voicemail, and displaying your Google Voice number as your caller ID when making calls from the app. According to Electric Pig, who have already tried out the app, the text function is very easy and the whole system appears to be speedy.

As far as we can tell there is going to be any charging for the apps use, nor for the texting. How long that lasts for not that the app is in the icy grip of Steve Jobs remains to be seen, however.
