Google Voice ported to Cydia

Becomes GV Mobile

| Mobile Devices, Tablets & Phones News | Posted: Jul 29, 2009 2:55 am

We told you this morning how Apple rejected Google's Google Voice app.
Apple's reason was that the Google App mimicked features already present on the iPhone. Well, this has not prevented it from existing.

 

It has been ported and out up on Cydia for download. That is right; once again the jailbreak crowd has found a way around Apple's iron fist.

 

To get this you will need a jailbroken iPhone (either using Purplera1n or redsn0w) once you are finished with that make sure you have the MMi repository. From there just grab the App and be happy with your new freedom.

 

The people over at Mod My I have been careful to note that this is not a product of Google but it will allow you to use the features of Google Voice.

 

Of course there is a downside; Google Voice is not available to all areas. According to Google's site it should be up in a "matter of weeks".
But for those that already have an account this is good news
