Google wanted to launch a Google Voice app for iPhone since last year, but Apple didn’t approve the application. Well, Goolge has found a way around the problem and today announced that Google Voice is available for iPhone (OS 3.0 or higher) and Palm WebOS, as a web-based (HTML5) application.
The new web app for iPhone and WebOS can be accessed at m.google.com/voice via your smartphone’s web browser. To have instant access to the web app, you can create a shortcut to the URL on your iPhone’s homescreen, or in your Palm handset’s Launcher.
The Google Voice web app provides access to “a streamlined version of your Google Voice inbox” and lets you place international calls at low rates, as well as send and receive SMS for free.
To use Google Voice, you need to be in the US and have a voice plan on your handset, as well as a Google Voice account. If you don’t have a Google Voice account, you can request an invite here.
