This is the second such app for Google Voice approved by Apple in as many days, after yesterday’s approval of GV Connect.

  • Copy/Paste into keypad
  • Phone number recognition (when you type a number in your contacts, it shows the name)
  • Tones stay on when key held down
  • Delete button when held down keeps deleting

SMS
