Apps For Google Voice Coming to The iPhone

Two new applications, both designed to work with the month old or so Google Voice are about to hit the Apple App Store, according to MobileCrunch.

I’ve been a fan of GrandDialer, an app that has been “retired” by its developer. It allowed call bridging to any of your GrandCentral numbers, and for those of us with Truphone a VoIP and SIP capable N or E Series Nokia phone who carried two phones, the ability to ring in countries where calling party pay applied, it made for the panacea of free calling.

Google covered the outbound to both parties, and Truphone handled the forwarding almost anywhere at no cost. You could accomplish the same with Skype or Gizmo by forwarding but you used the local minutes, but the call to Gizmo is free due to the peering relationship between the two services.

With the two new apps due to arrive soon, GoogleVoice will likely pick up more users on the iPhone, adding a whole new dimension of use of the slick device. Hopefully other platforms like Android, Symbian and Blackberry are on the roadmap too.
