Google Voice arrives on iPhone

After a year and a half of waiting, Google Voice for iPhone has finally arrived to the App Store.

Main menu

The main menu gives you an in-box for managing your Google Voice text and voice messages.

Message in-box

You can favorite, read, and play messages from the in-box. Since Google Voice is visual voice mail, the chronology makes no difference. Pulling down the entire screen with your finger manually refreshes the list.

Priority voice mail

The bifurcated Contacts screen has one view for all contacts and a filtered view where you'll see a list of favorite callers and recent calls for faster selection.

Here's what the Quick Dial and Recents fields look like after making some calls.

Dialer screen

The clean layout makes it obvious how to place a call or compose a text.

Unknown numbers

Some texts came in through routing numbers, a mistake. This is neither our colleague's iPhone or Google Voice number.

Texting

Texting looked good within Google Voice, although as my colleague Rafe noticed, messages often appeared in our iPhone text in-box in addition to the in-box on the Google Voice app.
