    The apps available in the App Store are quite good. I have both GV Mobile+ and GV Connect as well as the official free Google Voice app. I prefer GV Mobile+ out of all 3 of them personally - it has a nice interface and has been reliable though setting up push notifications takes a little effort and is not automatic like it is with the official app.

    Why do you leave all 3 on your phone?

    I don't – I no longer have the official Google Voice app on my iPhone but I still have both GV Mobile+ and GV Connect on it. Part of my day job is testing iPhone apps and I like to keep an eye on the updates made to both of these apps.

    Ah ok. Thanks. Will either app let me specify when making a call, whether to dial use GV number or cell #?

    Talkatone lets you use your GV number to make free calls from any iOS device.

    I use GV Mobile+ as my main app but keep the official GV app on my phone just because I'm too lazy to set up push with GVM+ :)

    I really only use it for texting though, and rarely dial out using my GV #.

    Hey there.
    To all the google voice users...which app are you using on the iPhone?
    I'm using GV + and while it is serviceable, it definitely has limitations.
