Anyone used GV Mobile (3rd party google voice app)?
iTunes Store Link
I finally got my GV invite the other day and was looking for iPhone app to make it easier to use. Right now I can't listen to voice mails in safari, just sits there saying loading. Plus there are other cool features that would be nice to have.
I don't believe the developer is planning on adding push support (don't think it's possible as a 3rd party app) so that kinda sucks. Not sure if I should just buy this app, it's only $2.99 or if I should wait for an official, probably free google voice app?

I just tried the free version iTunes Store
In this version it just lets you make an outbound call using your iPhone phone book which is pretty nice.

Google Voice is a telephone switchboard.
You enter the numbers where you want to be reached: home, work, cell, spouse's cell, etc. You give out the GV number, & when someone dials it - all those numbers will ring. You choose which phone to answer. The caller won't know (or care).
There is much more (obviously), but that's the nuts and bolts.

It is free but you have to receive an invite from Google. I think you just have to ask for one and they eventually send you an invite. I have had mine since it was Grand Central so I am a little fuzzy on how they do it now since it is GV.
Here is a good article from Lifehacker that explains how GV works. Here is another on how to transition to GV.
