Love it
Very nice
by Ppress000 on 2016/05/23 12:33
It a great app
Why??
by Hrs90 on 2016/05/22 23:56
Why would anybody download this app when you can get google hangouts which lets you call and text unlimited to any number??
Not really Free
by VickytoriaA19 on 2016/05/17 01:41
You have to use coins from Click-on Ads
Somewhat satsified
by SSheaden on 2016/05/15 13:22
Difficult to activate but better than Magic jack
Ridiculous App
by Just1Take on 2016/05/14 16:45
You can't use it till you've linked all your Google peripherals and submitted your email to a variety of retailers to earn credits. The only way to access your Google voice account is with the credits your "earn" from all that divulging. RIP OFF! Won't do it. I get enough junk email.
No one can hear me or keypad presses
by ScrabbleHound2 on 2016/05/13 16:56
Wastes my credits with every call! No one can hear me! Yet it steals my credits every time I try to make this work. IVR menu systems no longer recognizes the keypad for extensions or pay-by-phone systems, or any system to press 0 for an operator! It And it can no longer hear my voice either, so voice activated systems are useless as well I do not own a phone, so Google voice on my iPad was my lifeline… And that lifeline is just been severed ... I can no longer call in sick or late for work, or pay my bills. Fully updated iPad 3 with latest IOS
Garbage
by Myatrumpz on 2016/05/13 14:03
I can't get a call or receive a text and I have credits I'm uninstalling
Rip OFF // I WANT MY MONEY BACK
by Maria Burgoss on 2016/05/12 12:58
False advertising there is no free calls with this app!
Awesome app for free calls
by Sick zombie action on 2016/05/10 15:18
Easy to work and a great way to stay in touch if your regular phone goes down on you. Free text messages and voice calls
Good to know

It would get the other stars,,, if it preformed as advertised.
Not free!!!'
by dube101 on 2016/05/05 05:27
Calling is not free. You need to earn credits by watching videos which is time consuming. I am surprised that Apple haven't banned this app for having misleading title. There are tons of better apps like Freetone,vonage which provides unlimited calling without wasting time like this app.
GV Phone
by MrTermin8tor41 on 2016/05/04 18:12
I've had this GV Phone for 4 years now. I It's great to have a back up number. It works off Wireless Wi-Fi and if you're in an area where your phone don't work but there's wireless Wi-Fi, you have a phone. You may have to park so you don't loose the Wi-Fi, there's a safety with having it. Thanks GV Phone Center, great product this is.
Too expensive
by Fdrhggghf on 2016/05/04 05:34
Very expensive, bad, will not use again.
Credits and Google phone signature on text
by imajnation876 on 2016/05/01 18:47
Cool app minus the Credits and Google phone signature on text
Not Free, nothing free but download.
by 4ever jt on 2016/04/30 00:35
Sorry but it's not free. You have to buy credits to make calls. And that's as far as I got. I would not trust this app. In the name it says free local and international calling, I call BS on this app!
I can make calls on my iPad now
by ASTRALzzzz on 2016/04/29 19:01
This is great I can make free voice over IP calls on my iPad. Great job as usual. Thank you Google. Update: still using product. It seems like the voice quality is getting better. Thx yu Google
Worst app ever
by Made from plastic ent. on 2016/04/29 06:01
To think this app was good i used to use it 3 years ago but then re downloading it was the worst you can't call or text without credits i only use google voice for people i dont want to give people my number but now this app just complicated things 😩😩😩
Bad
by Addie✌🏻️ on 2016/04/28 21:43
I don't have a gmail and it didn't let me put my email in it
So far so good
by Sam 4321 on 2016/04/28 18:05
I have been using your system, so far I am impressed by the HD quality of the voice. Follow up: using it for a couple days, the international calls are twice as expensive to penny talk and skype, kindly review your rates.
Google+ Review
by yukonfin22 on 2016/04/27 20:52
I use it daily with no hiccups for texting, voice calls and conference calls, it's been amazing.
Works Best in Wi-Fi but STILL Needs Fine-Tuning
by BubblePOPPA on 2016/04/27 17:23
When connected to Wifi, this app is a jewel for those needing an alternate number for...whatever reason. The calls are clearest and won't drop (which the app does OFTEN when making calls and NOT connected to wifi). I don't mind the ads, (because it is free, after all), and I appreciate the feature which you can watch videos for points instead of having to buy them in a bundle. My ONLY complaints for this app is how SOMEtimes the phone won't even ring out loud when calls are coming in and how often calls drop when not on a wifi connection. If the creators of it could somehow fine-tune this app to work EXACTLY as it's advertised, then it would be the best google voice phone app out there!!!
"Free", not exactly.
by App ReviewOr on 2016/04/27 11:08
Unable to use without purchasing credits. Has a mechanism to earn credits but is that really free?
Internet Phone
by burkyii on 2016/04/26 17:44
Your last update in December of 2015 caused me to lose all the points I had accumulated. I have made multiple attempts to get this matter addressed, but only to hit a stone wall. Included were screen shots of my point total. Still nothing from the developer. I again upgraded to the newest version today, with little hopes that it would bring my points back; it did not. Because of this I no longer attempt to accumulate points. Maybe some one some day will try to get this straightened out. Sincerely, Ronald M. Burkhart
No Longer a good App
by Yaygen on 2016/04/26 02:15
Back in 2012 roughly through 2013 this app never asked for credits or anything you where able to make local calls via Google voice and connecting your account and if you wanted to make a long distance call them that's when you needed to purchase coins to do so. Now this app is not worth the effort. It looks cheaper then it used to and its boggy as if I was 80 years old and needed to see the numbers on the key pad. I did a review on this years ago and yes I gave it 4 stars now looking at it a low 1 star honestly I would remove this app on the App Store it's no longer reliable and convenient anymore. Thank you
Poor App
by Quality Ratings on 2016/04/26 01:51
This app is absolutely garbage. DO NOT DOWNLOAD.
Was expecting so much more from Google.
by vibrantjames on 2016/04/25 00:53
It took three days to get this app up and running. The connection I had was comparable to that of using two tin cans and string, at least that was an immediate connection. I don't know about anyone else, but my time is valuable, watch videos for credits... Come on! What's this about "free calls, free texting"? Is one of the higher-up's there trying to buy an Island for one of their not-even-born-yet nephews or nieces. I can fix your problems for free. Call FaceBook and ask them how they did it. Their system for making phone calls is flawless. Oh yeah... And FREE!

It says free, you have to earn credits to talk for free or pay plus interface is subpar.

Bait & switch tactics Don't waste your time
by PrettyfaceC on 2016/04/17 18:52
Free call mean watching video clips to get credits it takes three credits or three videos to make a one minute call don't waste your time with this app it's garbage!
Login issues

Google you Gotta fix this App!😡
by AndresAunt on 2016/04/11 02:23
I just purchased a new iphone (this app is suppose to be great with iPhones), but after unloading and loading this app back on to my new phone (twice!) it still won't let me sign in! It keeps telling me that "oops there was a problem with signing in" and then it wants me to go through all of these steps to check my security settings. I did that and nothing changed. Even though my password for Google works fine on my computer when I sign in. I noticed that several other reviews say the same thing about their password. I understand that the app is free and maybe there's not much revenue being generated from this app. But c'mon If it's going to be affiliated with the Google brand. Shouldn't it work properly? If the app is not going to be maintained, why offer it??? Get rid of it!! If it doesn't work it's useless!!
Bait and switch
by Sakura Iwazaru on 2016/04/10 16:49
Advertised as the only totally free phone app but it's not free you will have to pay for credits or watch a million commercials

by Mandey J on 2016/03/20 12:42
I've checked my settings multiple times and everything is how it's suppose to be. Microphone is on and the person I try to call still can't hear me. I've even went as far as buying minutes and it's disappointing that I can't use them. If this is not fixed soon I will be contacting apple for full refund and removing this app from my phone.

Locked out
by Sexy Kia on 2016/03/03 01:45
I use this for my business line and it won't log on it keeps asking me to put in my google password and it's still not letting me in. I know I'm putting in the right password as I log on from my computer and got into my google voice with no problems. Not happy at all
Waste of space
by Jaidenmommy on 2016/03/02 16:01
I can't even log in! It's telling me that the password I use everyday doesn't work. Just downloaded it and I'm already about to erase it.
Great

Easy to use and works great
Good idea, if it worked
by Visionarik(Murrieta) on 2016/02/21 06:54
I have an iPhone 6s. My friends told me about google voice as an option to switch two since I use my personal phone less than my business phone. Good thing I didn't port my number over without testing it. The call went through and Google Voice had all the permissions to use my microphone, but the person I was calling couldn't hear me at all. Great idea, if it worked. I'll wait for an updated version and leave an updated review soon.
Horrible

Great App
by David in St. Louis on 2016/02/16 21:37
I use it on an iPhone 3GS for when I run out of minutes, but mostly on an iPad Mini 3...it works perfectly & everyone I call from my iPad says the sound quality is very good! Another plus: Absolutely free minutes just for watching a 30 or 60 second video - I'm sold & my iPad can make and receive phone calls to and from anyone...without using FaceTime
Ewww

Not free and no phone number to receive calls
by abarbaria on 2016/02/04 13:00
What happened?!? Hero to zero/ Years ago I had google voice, it provided a actual ten digit to receive calls not it is only 8 !!! Plus it used to be truly free / now it cost you time to earn limited credit and time to make a seemingly expensive call.
Ads pop up in the middle of typing every few seconds!

Can't sign up or register
by chippyinla on 2016/02/03 17:34
Google will not allow me to register with this third-party app due to security reasons . So I can't attest to the application itself like many others here are.
Not impressed
by Purestltrou on 2016/02/01 12:47
I downloaded this with high hopes and great intentions. It assigned a number to my device from Thailand. Not sure how this happened, but I will be deleting this app.
Identity theft anyone?
by Biobat on 2016/02/01 01:41
I'm pretty sure this app is simply stealing your google account information. Best be changing those passwords kids.
Worthless
by Makdesigns on 2016/01/30 05:05
Worst app ever. Come on Google!!!
Calls are not free
by Composer56 on 2016/01/30 00:22
Don't bother to download this app if you are expecting free phone calls. You are required to watch commercials in order to earn credit for a phone call. There may be other ways to earn credits too, but as soon as this happened I opted out. google's version is totally free.
YOU'VE BEEN WARNED!
by TiiSki on 2016/01/29 21:11
Very sketchy... The first BIG red flag was that it didn't accept my Google password and wanted me to go through a series of 'steps' to create a way to login. Also, this is NOT a Google app.

Don't bother. You don't need this app.
by Lakeside Al on 2016/01/26 23:25
Don't bother. It says you can make free calls. But when you try your first test call it says you don't have enough credits to (to make a free call?). You can earn credits by watching advertising videos (fair enough). I earned $1.00 in credit. But a 2 minute local call cost 49 cents. I earned another $3.00 in credit by watching 3 more videos. But my next local call cost $1.00 of that credit. Heck, that's like the cost of a cell phone call in 1986. I'm not sure if I'd be billed that much for calls if I had actually purchased credits. However, you can make google Voice calls calls on your iPad by using the Google Hangouts App. No need for this separate app.
Awesome app!!!
by Wueng Chung on 2016/01/26 08:58

I used this app often and ran through 1000 credits of call time. But with latest update, and of course after I just purchased another 1000 minutes, the app is not working. I make the calls, I can hear the other people, but they can't hear me. Please fix or reimburse me!

You will never get free credits
by Baruhas on 2016/01/08 19:55
Frustrating and just waste of my time. They make you download other apps to get free credits but they would never load promised credits to your account. It keeps pending for credits to load but you will never get them. It's been over few weeks now and I haven't received a single credit for the 5 apps I've downloaded and used.

Literally stopped working after 3 months. I couldn't get any credits to make calls, I can't see my inbox. I can't tap anything on the screen. I just tried an update but nothing changed. Just can't do it.
Works great if used correctly
by Ameeba1 on 2016/01/01 10:41
I work all over the world and on one of my trips I lost all phone capabilities and all I had was my wife's IPhone 5 with no phone service. I found a coffee shop with wifi and downloaded the app. The key is you must be in decent wifi coverage and you must dial the number correctly, obviously without the international digits. And make sure your phone is not blocking the program, through settings you can check it. But for me it has been a lifesaver and even the longest calls from EU to US were only 2 cents a minute. But remember it is about having a decent wifi signal. God be with you and Merry Christmas!
Didn't work. Deleted it.

Google voice is sick

If you like google voice you must be taking stupid pill
NOT free. Lame.
by C1h9r8i8s on 2015/12/31 01:52
This app works about half the time. And it is not free. You have to purchase credits, or watch annoying ad videos to "earn free credits." Don't waste your time or money.
Horrible!!!!
by John Harvey on 2015/12/30 20:38
The old app worked ok, once they went to this credit system it's a joke. I also have an issue looking into my gmail acct. the apps continues to say that my password is incorrect, even after verifying on both my laptop and desktops OK. Google, please put out another app...PLEASE!!'nm
This app stinks

Ok app for calls, not so much for texts
by Lwhouse_037 on 2015/01/14 23:24
I downloaded this app to replace Talkatone, that discontinued using Google Voice and used their own service, and is limited on local numbers. I use the my Google Voice number for my small DJ/vid production business, so I can have a business number that is low in cost, and so I don't have to give out my personal number. So far I seem to be able to make calls ok with this app, how ever, texts I sent myself and some friends as a test, come from a different number then my google voice #, with a tag about get Mo+ to reply. Obviously this doesn't allow people to reply back without getting the app, so that is no good. I also tried the full Mo+ app and same thing. If Im gonna pay for an app, It should text with my GV number I link with it and allow people from any phone to text back. (One of the phones I texted as a test is a clam shell type phone, which does not use apps.) Another feature this app needs, that is available on the Mo+ app, is the ability to change the background and ringtone. If I would suggest one more feature, would be able to use the all the tones I have in my iphone, including my custom ones, not just the small list of extra tones you get with the paid version of Mo+. If these changes where made, I wouldn't mind paying a yearly subscription, even buying tokens ever now and then.
Tons of cons & pros
by Lucky guy Colorado on 2015/03/12 02:15
Cons- Doesn't reliably ring for incoming calls (which are free) even with good wifi. Voice quality can be anywhere from horrid to fine; it's the apps fault as much as a given wifi strength. So I borrow someone else's phone when I can to make calls (because of voice quality and to save points) and text with a computer (just to save fractions of a point) whenever possible. Some outgoing texts and outgoing calls I show up as a bizarre number. Video ads which earn points are usually unavailable. App crashes fairly often. Sometimes texts I should be receiving won't show up for as long as 10 days, seems to be for particular friends' phones. Pros- I can choose to watch ads, download apps, or pay nominal money to earn points to make calls and texts. Incoming always free. Missed calls and texts most often show up quickly so I stay in touch close to real time when I have wi-fi. Contacts are shared with gmail. Pretty interface mimics iPhone's updated phone app (I think that's behind why it's so slow and buggy). Works with iPhones and with iPod touch 5+. I have to re-log in when switching devices. Overall, it's 60-70% reliable if you're patient, with poor voice quality even with good wi-fi. But I think it's marginally better than Hangouts Oovoo, Vtalk, Talkatone, and the like.
So close yet so far.

On paper, this app looks and feels better than every other app out there for using their Google voice account for phone calls and text messaging. Beautiful interface, combination of featuring both messages AND the ability to place calls (vs using the Google Voice app and the Google Hangouts app), and customizable with premium features as well. I can place calls and send messages perfectly but the real problem from my experience is that I cannot receive messages or calls unless I am in the app. I deleted any other messaging app and even turned off and turned on my ipod and was able to receive a huge influx of messages BUT if I receive any, they can be 10 or 15 minutes later. Such a shame because the interface is great and it works but unfortunately, the functionality for me is completely lost if I don't receive calls/messages when they are originally sent. Even though the Gv app is ugly as hell and I only use the hangouts app for calling, I know they work every single time. For that reason, I may have to revert to using those apps. To those getting good experiences and works flawlessly, I'm envious though as it is now, this app gets 3 stars.
Not bad for calling but beware
by scottm249b on 2014/12/15 22:23
Calling quality is not bad compared to other apps I have used. Calls generally go right through without delay and I've experienced little dropped calls. My complaint is attempting to earn credits. I have tried both methods to earn free credits and am extremely dissatisfied and frustrated, to the point where I will no longer be using this app as I have found another that actually gives you the free credits that you earn. I have been able to earn a few free credits from watching videos however most of the time after watching just a few it tells you there isn't anymore videos to watch. I have also tried to earn credits by downloading and opening apps and taking surveys but after trying that eight times without a single credit added to my account I have given up. Edit: since writing, I have been able to gain a few credits from downloading a few apps but still can't earn any from the videos. Better, but still has some issues.
GV Phone or Talkatone?
by 1MS on 2013/02/26 05:17
This app is way better than Talkatone, reason being: you can read messages offline and even send messages offline, which when dont go through you can resend easily. In that sense the app is much quicker to load as you can already start typing a text before it connects to the internet unlike Talkatone. The voice quality seems to be just as good. The adds on the bottom so far are appropriate unlike Talkatone ads. Some ways this app can improve: offer landscape orientation (a really easy addition), add settings so that after sending a message the keyboard wont disappear. Other ways to improver would be to offer multiple sign on. Other than that, excellent. I love how even while you're on the phone, text messages still appear. Great app, thank you for making something better than Talkatone!!
Fantastic!!!
by Russbo1 on 2013/04/07 17:59
Great reception... Sounded like I was on a real phone. I had to make a call to Straight Talk to attempt to get my cell phone's number ported over and activated so I used my iPad Mini and made the call. The sound was crisp and clear coming through the tablet's speaker and I could hear and understand everything the guy on the other end had to say. We even had a good laugh over the urgency and importance of getting my phone number properly ported over (see how easily you can make your customers jump ship with your crappy prices, service and business, Verizon?!). I'll be using this sucker a lot more, especially at home. Google Voice, you rock! And there were no problems with accounts, unlike Magic Jack's worthless app. This one more than makes up for MJ's unforgivable flaws. Get this app, you'll love it!
It's a love/hate relationship
by accidentmagnet on 2014/11/13 02:25
I only came to write this review because they offered me one free "credit" if I left them a five-star review. I have been using this app for years to receive google voice messages and calls and have no idea what these "credits" are for. Otherwise, I LOVE the fact that I can make and receive calls from the app with no associated phone number, allowing me to use an iPod touch or iPhone with no service plan as a phone. My biggest complaint is that there is a horrible delay during calls. Edit: after posting the above review with only a single star, I quickly discovered that the app wants "credits" to send any messages. This had never been the case before posting a poor review. Sketchy as he11.
Disappointing
by jj283088 on 2013/03/31 08:20
I thought this app was awesome at first - it is great at integrating google voice and google chat...I absolutely LOVE that I can take my google # with me, especially since I'm working internationally and it's an easy way for friends and family to call me. However, there is about a 5 sec. lag in conversation which makes it frustrating and difficult to talk on the phone. I switched back to using Bobsled to make free calls back to the States - the call is much more clear and no lag between conversation. In regards to the texting/google chat, I can't stand that the keyboard automatically shrinks back down after you send a message....and also that the ad is there at the bottom. There have been a # of times that I've accidentally hit the ad instead of the bar to reopen the keyboard. In all, on the surface it looks great, but upon further use it's not the best and could use some fixes.
Better than Google's own GV app
by Dnheller on 2013/10/10 02:34
I don't give 5 stars usually. But this is a great app. Not perfect but too good for 4 stars. Faster and better than native GV app for iOS. Worked perfectly for calling US numbers from Europe over wifi. I would pay for this app if they got rid of the ads and made a few refinements like a unified inbox/history like googles own app. Also need option to be able to configure it like Googles own native app to route incoming calls to land or mobile lines used with native GV and show alerts only for text message because it eats too much battery power to keep it in online mode for incoming calls that could go to the forwarding numbers I've set with google voice.
History in the making
by DCopen on 2012/12/10 06:10
You my friends are staring a potential game changer for the entire mobile communication community. With a few good tweaks these guys could potentially negate the need for cellphone minutes... Who needs a phone if you have an iPad mini with cellular? I like where your going with this guys, please please keep up the good work. Please contact me if you would like some suggestions or if you need a few testers. A few buddies and I am trying to find a way around the need for a cellphone in today's day and age and your app is one potential corner stone. We greatly appreciate your hard work. We look forward to your update! I dropped a star due to the not so flawless execution but I'm more than happy to up the score as you push out a new update.

by RTZyOklkffh on 2012/12/27 21:26
I think that though I haven't used this app for very long it is one of the most trustful and convenient apps you will get. It is made by a very popular and trustworthy company. It has THE best deals, better than all others. We get free calling without wifi and we can direct it towards gmail accounts. Insuring that not only is it a safe, secure and GREAT app, you will be able it base it off of your own gmail account opening up parental controls. Though other text messaging apps will try to persuade you with cool backgrounds, fonts and faces, you will be missing out on a fantastic app here. I strongly suggest using this app for it's great deals and safe, convenient, free calling and texting wherever you go!
Works Best in Wi-Fi but STILL Needs Fine-Tuning
by BubblePOPPA on 2016/04/27 17:23
When connected to Wifi, this app is a jewel for those needing an alternate number for...whatever reason. The calls are clearest and won't drop (which the app does OFTEN when making calls and NOT connected to wifi). I don't mind the ads, (because it is free, after all), and I appreciate the feature which you can watch videos for points instead of having to buy them in a bundle. My ONLY complaints for this app is how SOMEtimes the phone won't even ring out loud when calls are coming in and how often calls drop when not on a wifi connection. If the creators of it could somehow fine-tune this app to work EXACTLY as it's advertised, then it would be the best google voice phone app out there!!!
Seems to work OK, but...
by RadioGeezer on 2013/02/14 09:17
demands that I write a review after using it only once or twice. I am giving it two stars because (1) I haven't had a fair chance to evaluate it or use all of its features and (2) it seems to lack a way of adding callers to your call filtering list, but (3) the basic function does seem, at least, to work. I would give 4 stars if I had been given time to fully evaluate it to my satisfaction to determine whether the basic functions worked and were reasonably reliable, and 5 stars if you could access the call filtering list as well. Revised: Upgraded to 4 stars. Would get 5 stars (although it would be worth 6 stars) if it allowed you to easily access the call filtering list.
Wow seriously, you're charging now?
by Anajbbyy on 2014/10/27 02:52
First off the app doesn't even remotely work well enough for you to charge for usage of credits, I mean I don't get calls or texts unless I'm in the app and even then I have to constantly refresh it! Secondly, call quality is crappy and delayed! Calls are constantly dropped and takes forever to load! Last but not least, it doesn't fully connect with my google account, I don't get pictures and I can't send emojis so why the heck would I pay for a call service that can only do 5% of what my phone does or 1% of what my normal google app does? Crappy, deleting from my phone!!!!
No support to be found, not letting me login
by 4thGradeMom on 2015/09/11 07:47
Since every time I click app support, I'm redirected back to the App Store, I will write this review and hope the developer sees it. I downloaded this app to work with my Google voice account. The login screen says that I need a Gmail or Google account. The Google account that is tied to my phone number is set up with an email that is not a Gmail address. I attempted to login with those credentials numerous times to no avail... The app error message just kept saying incorrect password.... Sooooo I attempted to log in with another Google account that has a Gmail email tied to it aaaand continued to receive the same incorrect password error message when attempting to login... So I'm not sure what's going on with the app, or if it's just me but i definitely haven't been able to even begin to use this app since it's got stuck at the login page...
Poor telephone call quality
by Whit the s$&t on 2013/09/15 17:54
Although I really have enjoyed this app for use with my personal business, the telephone conversation quality is abysmal! When I make calls to people it constantly cuts out. This makes it very difficult to conduct telephone conversations even within Wi-Fi range. That being said, The app is wonderful regarding alerting me to telephone message that have been left for me, texting, and to enable an ambiguous telephone number to be used for clientele in my business.... wish I could use the telephone call app without having to have black outs, cut offs & static interference. I cannot understand nor can the person on the other end of the line Clearly hear the content of the conversations held via telephone call. Overall, good message app and text app, Very poor conversation quality for telephone use.
Great!
by Elena Cullen <3 on 2014/07/02 02:54
This app is a great app if u have access to a computer. But if not it wouldn't probably be the best choice for you. But so far it's helped me be able to communicate faster with family an friends in a much easier an faster more accessible way. Which is exactly what j need because it's great for me to use when I need to be able to use it. Cause it'll always bd there for me to use. Want I don't like though is constantly having to have wifi in order to txt or call it gets to be a pain but I live with it cause it's just one of those things ya know. But If you'd like to get this app this is definitely one I'd recommend you'd use! 😄👍
I love the app but please no updates
by Phil w g on 2014/06/14 03:23
Everything on this app works great on my iPod touch. (But I would request one thing: that we make a choice to have the app updated by the users themselves. I have experience that when an app is working well there is no reason to update and then when it is automatically updated, the app has more problems.) Everyone is buying iPhones, WHY? All I have is an iPod touch 3. As long as I can get a wifi connection, and that is mostly anywhere, I can use this app at my convenience. Besides, when you use your landline phone, it only works through your home phone jacks only.
Mo+ GVPhone
by Nanopod2 on 2012/11/24 08:09
This is a well designed app by way of graphics and handling. But is not very well designed for function like continual use. For example. (1)I won't get any texts or calls unless the app is running up along with my email. (sometimes it also goes offline automatically when you leave the app). (2)You can't make the keyboard bigger by tilting the devise. (3)There are no settings options. (wallpapers, ringtones, notifications, etc). (4)Sometimes it stores the last text into the texting window. Which is very annoying because you must erase everything you wrote the last time before you can write something new. I think they have a very good program. But there are several bugs that need fixing. Keep up the great work!
Google you Gotta fix this App!😡
by AndresAunt on 2016/04/11 02:23
I just purchased a new iphone (this app is suppose to be great with iPhones), but after unloading and loading this app back on to my new phone (twice!) it still won't let me sign in! It keeps telling me that "oops there was a problem with signing in" and then it wants me to go through all of these steps to check my security settings. I did that and nothing changed. Even though my password for Google works fine on my computer when I sign in. I noticed that several other reviews say the same thing about their password. I understand that the app is free and maybe there's not much revenue being generated from this app. But c'mon If it's going to be affiliated with the Google brand. Shouldn't it work properly? If the app is not going to be maintained, why offer it??? Get rid of it!! If it doesn't work it's useless!!
My Google Voice Usage
by Synapticalist on 2015/02/13 16:54
Well I have Google Voice and Tallkatone. When I added Google Voice to my G-mail, I had two numbers I had to remember, but since I was going to have to have a Google number, I just use my Google number to call my two phones and this app helps me to buy credits and still use Google Voice. Even though the Google Voice app can work with Talkatone but it cost more to get credit that way. But with this phone app, the credits are cheaper and it works with my Google Voice App. I was able to add another number and now my phone is fully operational but only on wifi
Not free anymore
by doinkyTHEcup on 2014/10/21 13:33
Then why the 5 stars you ask? Because it's the only way you can get a free credit to make outgoing calls. The same calls that used to be free. I only used this app because it was completely free to make calls when my cell line is shut off. But the quality of calls was always pretty bad. It's insanely laggy, like talking on a satellite phone. The longer you talk the longer the delay becomes. If you have a google voice number it's just easier to use google hangouts to make outgoing calls and texts and just use this crappy app to receive them.
Great option for using Google Voice account abroad
by MAD3EUR on 2013/05/02 17:59
I live in Europe & I purchased a Google Voice credit months ago. I could never use the native G Voice app to make calls since it would not allow me to register/use a non-US phone number. *PHONE for G Voice & GTalk solved that problem*, since it only requires my Gmail account. It automatically uploaded my GVoice credit (and GVoice US number) when I signed into the app. Now I can call the US & Europe for much cheaper than my regular European cell provider!! UPDATED Review: I have enjoyed using this app, BUT the SMS notifications are received at least 1 hour (or more) later than they are actually sent (and received promptly in the native G Voice app). That is very disappointing. Minus 2 stars.
Works great if used correctly
by Ameeba1 on 2016/01/01 10:41
I work all over the world and on one of my trips I lost all phone capabilities and all I had was my wife's IPhone 5 with no phone service. I found a coffee shop with wifi and downloaded the app. The key is you must be in decent wifi coverage and you must dial the number correctly, obviously without the international digits. And make sure your phone is not blocking the program, through settings you can check it. But for me it has been a lifesaver and even the longest calls from EU to US were only 2 cents a minute. But remember it is about having a decent wifi signal. God be with you and Merry Christmas!
HAS NOT WORKED AT ALL IN 48 HOUR
by Veggies aureus on 2014/09/11 15:38
This past Tuesday night, the 9th, I pay ten dollars on my card so my texts will go through, as they suddenly stopped. (I only have an itouch and iMessage only works with other apple users.....not everyone uses an apple product) Therefore, I cannot use whatsapp, and I must use an alternative texting app to stay in communication with other users. For as long as I've had my itouch, just under two years, I have had no problem, until now. Trust me, the idea of suddenly having to pay made me livid but I was excited to FINALLY be able to send pictures! Right now, my problem is that I wasted ten bucks, because I paid Monday night and come Tuesday, no one was receiving my texts nor was I getting any of theirs. Heard whatsapp is great, yet I need something that will work on my iTouch 😔
This app is such bull**it!!!
by Rated+ R on 2013/11/23 01:22
I was giving this app the benefit of a doubt and didn't want to write a bad review but it forced me to do so today. Not only the call quality is total garbage people can't hear me and it delay the conversation just like it delays text messages. If someone send me a text now it will take hours before I get the text. Very very poor sound quality, just incase it's not bad enough now I can't open the app to do anything without the ads taking me straight to iTunes to download other crappy apps they are advertising for. Fix that stupid bug of yours that keeps taking me to iTunes to download your stupid ads! I do not want download any of your crappy ads!your app is bad enough to make me cringe every time I try to use it. App is much more useless now! Will delete it for better options ASAP!
Convenient backup
by c8h10n4o2 on 2015/03/21 23:21
Definitely has tons of room for improvement before considering it as a reliable, primary option for calls/texts but it is a great backup for making calls via wifi when my cellphone provider has weak coverage. Thankfully, this is usually when I'm indoors or on a flight, etc anyway. There are still other caveats though. For example, "free" actually means earning credits by doing tasks such as writing a review like this! Overall, still a nice option to have. Worth comparing to Google Hangouts for call quality, ease of use, etc.
Ploy
by Javelin69 on 2015/09/19 03:08
I was looking for an alternative to the Google Voice or Google Hangouts apps which you can make calls an texts through for free, because they only work so-so. This app links to your Google Voice account like the other two native Google apps, but this one you have to obtain their "credits" to make texts or calls. Some credits are free but you have to do things like download other apps to get them, but they also offer an option the buy them. I didn't go far down that road because I don't like the idea of a third party making money off of something that supposed to be free, just because they caught your attention, and I don't want to jump through advertising hoops to so either. I don't know why the app is so highly rated, that's the reason why I downloaded it.
Great app; needs a couple features to be perfect
by Cristo72 on 2013/02/03 20:09
This app has the potential to be the best Google Voice Phone app I've seen out there. It certainly has the best user interface. While it is not as feature rich as some other apps, I hope some of those are the natural next features to be implemented. Add these features and fix a few bugs and it would be 5 stars. This would become my one and only Google Voice phone app if it… 1) Allowed removal of the ads (i.e., for a premium, of course) 2) Supported push notifications so if the app wasn't running, it would still ring/text 3) Allowed me to check/manage Google Voice voicemail inside the app 4) Showed me how many Google Voice credits I have available I don't understand why there are two almost identical apps by Mo+ (GV Phone & Mo+). The Mo+ version allows for premium ad removal, but they seem to be the same otherwise I'll probably use Mo+ simply for the ad removal, but wish I understood the intention of the developer for having two nearly the same apps.
Problematic
by 1MamaKat on 2014/04/14 16:28
The call quality is poor, I often get complaints that I sound as if I am talking underwater. On my end the calls can come in spotty- as if the other person is on a bad cell connection. The ads are terrible! They will pop up and redirect the call after a certain point or the ones places at the bottom are so close to the icons you hit them accidentally. What's worse is the lag upon answer- since the last update it often sends callers to voicemail even though I answer the call. Often the program freezes or simply won't respond when I try and press the buttons. On some incoming calls after answering the ring continues- so the other person has to out shout the ring throughout the entire call.
I love this app!!
by xXtidusXx on 2014/01/15 17:18
I found this app looking for an app to use my inactive iPhone to make VoIP calls, I would have preferred to just use google voice but the app does not make the call over an Internet connection, it places calls through your cell phone only, when I found this app I thought it was too good to be true, and its been 100% perfect so far, texting is a little slow to receive but that's the only fault, I can place and receive calls over an Internet connection using my google voice number, thank you so much for this perfect app!!
Oh I see how it is...
by msdrpepper on 2014/11/27 15:34
I was searching for Google Apps and saw this one claiming to be Google Talk, where I could use my Google number I got several years ago. I've never been able to log in (it demands your Gmail log in and password). So far it always claims I entered my info incorrectly. But then I started getting emails from Gmail notifying of attempts into my gmail account and to change my password. That makes me think this app is trying to harvest my gmail credentials (despite claims that it is "encrypted". So I am going to bold and give this a .25 star rating, which will show up as a 1 star rating only because Apple wasn't brilliant enough to offer ratings of less than one star! I would advise you to skip the 5 stars for "free" credit because this app gives nothing but free headaches!! :(
Pointless App
by Skierbarry on 2014/11/11 08:03
This used to be a support for less but useful app. However then they started charging for phone calls and continue to inundate on with too many adds. For texting and making phone calls I'm happy to use my Google voice app. There's never a fee to use it as long as you are using Wi-Fi which is the only time I make phone calls through the Internet. Google voice app also gives you unlimited texting. So why should I pay for phone calls gimmicks trying to earn coins time etc. when I can simply use the Google Voice app. Or even better for just making calls from your phone or tablet is the magic jack app. Calls are always free and it's a good service.
Good design, bad voice quality
by Beckers88 on 2013/03/08 02:17
I really wanted to like this app & even did for a few days. It lets me receive calls at my GV #, something even Google's app doesn't do! And, the UI design is great and quick to navigate. But, once I started using it for voice calls, the bad news came. The person on the other end kept having a hard time hearing me and the app kept telling me that network quality was poor. As a test, I immediately switched my call to Skype and my callee said I could be heard without difficulty. So, it wasn't the network, it's was the app. Blah. Back to Skype I go. I hope they get these issues solved at some point as I really would like to use this app.
Not Bad , Not perfect ... Alright
by candyisme on 2013/08/06 05:44
GV Phone & Mo+ are both (the same) useful apps. I have GV Phone installed on my iPod Touch 4th Gen. Easy to set up, just enter your GV login details and voila! My complaint: I really wish there was a way to answer incoming calls from the lock screen. I'm currently unable to answer while the screen is locked. Despite hearing the ringer, I am given no option other than to miss the call, unlock the screen and then call the number back every time. Not only is this a hassle, it's a major inconvenience... Especially when I have to miss a call from a private or unknown number that simply can't be returned. I still can't live without it though!
Unreliable for getting calls
by Pio Masaki on 2013/08/07 00:09
App works great for everything except receiving calls. I've yet to see it actually work even one time on 2 devices, it will ring consistently, but answering is either so slow and laggy they hang up, goes to voicemail, or just crashes. This is when the device is asleep when it comes in, I've never had a call come in while I'm using the device so it may work better that way. If you need reliable incoming call performance, look elsewhere. 3 stars for texting working 100% so far as well as gtalk working very well, just fix incoming call performance, that's kind of an important aspect to a phone application.
Greatest calling & texting app ever
by Connor Hyman on 2014/04/07 04:00
I got this app last year and I have been loving it so far. I have an iPod touch 5 so I don't have the real phone app. Also, you can only text people with apple device. The main reason I bought this app is so I could text my dad. My dad has a samsung galaxy so I can't text him via iMessage. I love this app and recommend it to any one who has an iPod touch or an iPhone with no SIM card. To conclude, when I bought this app, I thought that it was operated by Google because it made me sign in with my gmail account/google voice.
I've had this for about 10 minutes
by What the app? on 2015/03/25 21:42
I just downloaded this and I'm very happy that it works in the background. This is so key when you want to be away from the office but appear online. The only drawback I've seen about on line status is that there isn't a status to show you're away. Only has three options: online, busy and offline :) Happy for now that I can put this in the background and still look like I'm online though. I haven't actually used it for IMs yet but I'll update as soon as I test that
Love Google Talk app!!
by BigDLittleD2Squared on 2014/10/06 08:32
I love this app! I love GOOGLE TALK in general! Google did a great job on creating and executing the concept of google talk, and now with this app, it's even easier to use google talk and to be able to keep in touch with anyone that contacts you through it. No more having to sign into gmail and google voice to find out if you have any new notifications, they are now right at your finger tip, and you get real time notifications of any incoming calls, incoming texts and any new voice mails! Thumbs up and five stars to this great app!!
Stay connected on Wi-Fi
by CyA on Wi-Fi on 2015/05/24 00:53
Well If I just pay my outrageous phone bill, I wouldn't be going through all this drama trying to get the right apps. And connect to a site that doesn't time-out or boot me off. What about the darn password? WILL SOMEBODY PLEASE JUST TELL US! Why is it such a big freakin' deal to know a password to something it labeled "guest" ! Last time I check "guest" meant " invited". So stay w/this app. Alone! And Why do they ask for a password anyway? I'm so staying connected for life.. If my remarks got you confused.. You ain't seen nothin' yet!!! Just pay to stay up!
Annoyance
by CrasherVonRazor on 2013/11/25 15:09
The adds are incredibly annoying, they are placed in just the perfect spot that I end up clicking that crud when I'm in the middle of trying to communicate via text, it slows my phone down and wastes my time. I would be willing to pay for the app for that to be gone, please make that an option. Please make it so I can type in landscape mode!!!! I have bilateral carpal tunnel and a torn tendon so it is painful to always be typing in portrait mode. The call quality nearly renders the phone feature unusable with the way it cuts out and has such a pronounced delay. I can never seem to answer a call either, unless I have the app open and in my hand. If the phone feature was more functional I would want to be able to choose my own ringtone. The one provided is too quiet. I can't hear it if it's in my pocket, purse or I'm in any public place. Recently I have been experiencing a glitch that causes text messages from the previous day to all come through on the chat log while in the middle if another conversation. It's rather confusing. I've just about switched back to relying solely on my email.....
SMS and background calls
by jdf729 on 2014/04/09 16:34
Sent myself several texts to this app from another phone. About an hour later all 5 hit at once. Sent another and still waiting for it over an hour now. Now they still come 15 minutes late. They hit the native GV app instantly. Sending a text with this app works fine. Wish I could take calls from the lock screen like the native iPhone function which is the only reason I have this app. It will alert me to incoming calls and use my GV voicemail instead of forwarding GV calls to my real mobile number. Unfortunately it takes using both apps to get the total functionality needed.
PERFECT!! Beautiful Interface! Great Service!!
by imtigger2 on 2014/07/08 21:32
I can FINALLY use my Google Voice number to call from WiFi. Finally. Google will usually screen calls, do VM and forward to your cell phone. Now I don't need a cell or HM phone in the middle of that. This works great for calls out. NOTE: To receive calls immediately, you HAVE TO SET IT UP with Google through a PC, NOT THIS APP (or google app). Google Voice will intercept every incoming call, as always. This app will allow you to make calls OUT using your GV number, to return phone calls or make phone calls. I love it!! -- Personally, I don't like answering calls, I like messages and calling back at MY convenience. There's too many crap calls and wasted time now days. Biz, sales, etc.. That's why we get GVoice numbers in the 1st place. Give family your MAIN cell or HM # and use GV for excellent VM services and this app to return calls. THANK YOU... EXCELLENT APP!!
Great Potential but Needs Improvements
by App--Man on 2012/07/29 20:05
The user interface is very nice, visually appealing, and clean. I like the way things are laid out but there are some fundamental problems with this app that should be fixed. Receiving Text Messages: I can send texts fine but the app does not receive text messages. I receive all of the persons texts much later (in about 2-3 hours sometimes much more). Sending Text Messages: Not really a problem but when I send text messages sometimes the app secretly puts a link in the text message without me knowing about it. I found this out because I was texting my brother he later showed me the messages with the links in them. Receiving Calls: I have to keep the app running in the background to receive calls. If I close it out in multitasking I do not receive calls. Features: Lots of good featurs but I would like to see voicemail, and a way to change the ringtone and text notifications. Otherwise its a great app that I really hope to see improved. Thanks.
Works like a dream

Of all the Google voice clients that I have tried, this software performs the best. I use it both for text messaging as well as for making phone calls and the voice quality is unparalleled. I see that some people complain about the ads. I really don't have a problem with the ads. They don't interfere with anything that I do with this app. The app would probably look nicer without ads, but since these ads are not getting in my way, I see no reason to complain about them.

AT&T, Apple iPhone 5, LTE. I ALWAYS have faster than 4G service (LTE) or high-speed WIFI running so service is not the issue here! I only give 1 or 5 Star Ratings. Either the app works as stated and gets 5*****, or doesn't and gets 1*! Sorry Mo+ but you do not receive extra Stars for occasionally working. I tried to save some money and the bulk of having to carry 2 cell phones BUT looks like that is what I will have to do. I use this app to separate business from pleasure and so far I have been extremely unhappy with it's performance. Loosing business because I am unreachable is unacceptable! Clients call and text me expecting immediate response (and I would) ...if it would only get to me right away! I run the app in the background as people are suggesting BUT to no avail; it makes little to no difference at all. At times I do not receive business text messages for up to 3 hours AFTER they are sent to me and that is just bad business and no fault to me. Calls do not go through, and are dropped when they do! APP IS GOOD IN THEORY... HOWEVER SHOULD NOT BE RELEASED TO THE PUBLIC UNTIL ALL BUGS ARE FIXED, AND WORK AS STATED!
Just got the app and I already love it!
by K4tierose on 2014/10/24 06:17
I just got the app to be able to keep my Google Voice calls separate, but the way it is set up, I might just use it as my main phone service. I love that you can earn credits for the phone calls that aren't covered, and you can call anyone in the US for free. It's perfect for keeping your phone bill low, or for people like me that have a number for work and another for personal. It has all the options your phone does, but it keeps it separate!
Needs some serious work
by Sexytoes9436 on 2013/03/05 21:46
This app may provide free texting, but I have others that do as well. They are much faster. My main complaint about this app concerns the call quality. Almost every single call either drops, has delayed speech, or the caller on the other end can't hear me at all. I've checked to see if its my Internet. I'm running 15mb so that's ruled out. In fact, I stood right beside my router while on a call today, and the person couldn't hear a thing I was saying. Come on Google! You guys have the resources at hand to make this a five star app! I'm tired of having to watch trailers for apps, just to get minutes to call. Text+ works just fine on wifi. This app should too.
Would be perfect, if it was free.
by Cauley396 on 2015/01/08 06:15
This is a great app. The call quality is great, and if you have a decent internet connection, there isn't any reception or connection issues. The texting is good as well, no lag at all. The only problem with this app, is that you have to earn "credits", to text and/or call. To send one text message, and to make one phone call, cost 1 credit each. You have to watch a 30 second video for a single credit, or download AND run an app. I find this a little ridiculous. If if was free, it would be perfect.

Ridiculous App
by Just1Take on 2016/05/14 16:45
You can't use it till you've linked all your Google peripherals and submitted your email to a variety of retailers to earn credits. The only way to access your Google voice account is with the credits your "earn" from all that divulging. RIP OFF! Won't do it. I get enough junk email.
No one can hear me or keypad presses
by ScrabbleHound2 on 2016/05/13 16:56
Wastes my credits with every call! No one can hear me! Yet it steals my credits every time I try to make this work. IVR menu systems no longer recognizes the keypad for extensions or pay-by-phone systems, or any system to press 0 for an operator! It And it can no longer hear my voice either, so voice activated systems are useless as well I do not own a phone, so Google voice on my iPad was my lifeline… And that lifeline is just been severed ... I can no longer call in sick or late for work, or pay my bills. Fully updated iPad 3 with latest IOS
Garbage

Not free!!!'
by dube101 on 2016/05/05 05:27
Calling is not free. You need to earn credits by watching videos which is time consuming. I am surprised that Apple haven't banned this app for having misleading title. There are tons of better apps like Freetone,vonage which provides unlimited calling without wasting time like this app.
GV Phone
by MrTermin8tor41 on 2016/05/04 18:12
I've had this GV Phone for 4 years now. I It's great to have a back up number. It works off Wireless Wi-Fi and if you're in an area where your phone don't work but there's wireless Wi-Fi, you have a phone. You may have to park so you don't loose the Wi-Fi, there's a safety with having it. Thanks GV Phone Center, great product this is.

Not Free, nothing free but download.
by 4ever jt on 2016/04/30 00:35
Sorry but it's not free. You have to buy credits to make calls. And that's as far as I got. I would not trust this app. In the name it says free local and international calling, I call BS on this app!
I can make calls on my iPad now
by ASTRALzzzz on 2016/04/29 19:01
This is great I can make free voice over IP calls on my iPad. Great job as usual. Thank you Google. Update: still using product. It seems like the voice quality is getting better. Thx yu Google
Worst app ever

Bad

by Sam 4321 on 2016/04/28 18:05
I have been using your system, so far I am impressed by the HD quality of the voice. Follow up: using it for a couple days, the international calls are twice as expensive to penny talk and skype, kindly review your rates.

I use it daily with no hiccups for texting, voice calls and conference calls, it's been amazing.
Works Best in Wi-Fi but STILL Needs Fine-Tuning
by BubblePOPPA on 2016/04/27 17:23
When connected to Wifi, this app is a jewel for those needing an alternate number for...whatever reason. The calls are clearest and won't drop (which the app does OFTEN when making calls and NOT connected to wifi). I don't mind the ads, (because it is free, after all), and I appreciate the feature which you can watch videos for points instead of having to buy them in a bundle. My ONLY complaints for this app is how SOMEtimes the phone won't even ring out loud when calls are coming in and how often calls drop when not on a wifi connection. If the creators of it could somehow fine-tune this app to work EXACTLY as it's advertised, then it would be the best google voice phone app out there!!!
"Free", not exactly.
by App ReviewOr on 2016/04/27 11:08
Unable to use without purchasing credits. Has a mechanism to earn credits but is that really free?
Internet Phone
by burkyii on 2016/04/26 17:44
Your last update in December of 2015 caused me to lose all the points I had accumulated. I have made multiple attempts to get this matter addressed, but only to hit a stone wall. Included were screen shots of my point total. Still nothing from the developer. I again upgraded to the newest version today, with little hopes that it would bring my points back; it did not. Because of this I no longer attempt to accumulate points. Maybe some one some day will try to get this straightened out. Sincerely, Ronald M. Burkhart
No Longer a good App
by Yaygen on 2016/04/26 02:15
Back in 2012 roughly through 2013 this app never asked for credits or anything you where able to make local calls via Google voice and connecting your account and if you wanted to make a long distance call them that's when you needed to purchase coins to do so. Now this app is not worth the effort. It looks cheaper then it used to and its boggy as if I was 80 years old and needed to see the numbers on the key pad. I did a review on this years ago and yes I gave it 4 stars now looking at it a low 1 star honestly I would remove this app on the App Store it's no longer reliable and convenient anymore. Thank you
Poor App
by Quality Ratings on 2016/04/26 01:51
This app is absolutely garbage. DO NOT DOWNLOAD.
Was expecting so much more from Google.
by vibrantjames on 2016/04/25 00:53
It took three days to get this app up and running. The connection I had was comparable to that of using two tin cans and string, at least that was an immediate connection. I don't know about anyone else, but my time is valuable, watch videos for credits... Come on! What's this about "free calls, free texting"? Is one of the higher-up's there trying to buy an Island for one of their not-even-born-yet nephews or nieces. I can fix your problems for free. Call FaceBook and ask them how they did it. Their system for making phone calls is flawless. Oh yeah... And FREE!

by AndresAunt on 2016/04/11 02:23
I just purchased a new iphone (this app is suppose to be great with iPhones), but after unloading and loading this app back on to my new phone (twice!) it still won't let me sign in! It keeps telling me that "oops there was a problem with signing in" and then it wants me to go through all of these steps to check my security settings. I did that and nothing changed. Even though my password for Google works fine on my computer when I sign in. I noticed that several other reviews say the same thing about their password. I understand that the app is free and maybe there's not much revenue being generated from this app. But c'mon If it's going to be affiliated with the Google brand. Shouldn't it work properly? If the app is not going to be maintained, why offer it??? Get rid of it!! If it doesn't work it's useless!!

I have an iPhone 6s. My friends told me about google voice as an option to switch two since I use my personal phone less than my business phone. Good thing I didn't port my number over without testing it. The call went through and Google Voice had all the permissions to use my microphone, but the person I was calling couldn't hear me at all. Great idea, if it worked. I'll wait for an updated version and leave an updated review soon.

by abarbaria on 2016/02/04 13:00
What happened?!? Hero to zero/ Years ago I had google voice, it provided a actual ten digit to receive calls not it is only 8 !!! Plus it used to be truly free / now it cost you time to earn limited credit and time to make a seemingly expensive call.

Calls are not free
by Composer56 on 2016/01/30 00:22
Don't bother to download this app if you are expecting free phone calls. You are required to watch commercials in order to earn credit for a phone call. There may be other ways to earn credits too, but as soon as this happened I opted out. google's version is totally free.
YOU'VE BEEN WARNED!
by TiiSki on 2016/01/29 21:11
Very sketchy... The first BIG red flag was that it didn't accept my Google password and wanted me to go through a series of 'steps' to create a way to login. Also, this is NOT a Google app.

Don't bother. You don't need this app.
by Lakeside Al on 2016/01/26 23:25
Don't bother. It says you can make free calls. But when you try your first test call it says you don't have enough credits to (to make a free call?). You can earn credits by watching advertising videos (fair enough). I earned $1.00 in credit. But a 2 minute local call cost 49 cents. I earned another $3.00 in credit by watching 3 more videos. But my next local call cost $1.00 of that credit. Heck, that's like the cost of a cell phone call in 1986. I'm not sure if I'd be billed that much for calls if I had actually purchased credits. However, you can make google Voice calls calls on your iPad by using the Google Hangouts App. No need for this separate app.
Awesome app!!!

It is too bad to use it. And then credits were gone quickly.
Horrible App
by Johnny 5s on 2016/01/21 18:37
App doesn't work. Keep saying I got the wrong password
No longer working
by IUginger on 2016/01/19 20:46
I used this app often and ran through 1000 credits of call time. But with latest update, and of course after I just purchased another 1000 minutes, the app is not working. I make the calls, I can hear the other people, but they can't hear me. Please fix or reimburse me!
Good App.and very useful

It is pay for everything else.
You will never get free credits
by Baruhas on 2016/01/08 19:55
Frustrating and just waste of my time. They make you download other apps to get free credits but they would never load promised credits to your account. It keeps pending for credits to load but you will never get them. It's been over few weeks now and I haven't received a single credit for the 5 apps I've downloaded and used.
Frustrating

Cant Even
by 0SneakAttack0 on 2016/01/02 18:10
Literally stopped working after 3 months. I couldn't get any credits to make calls, I can't see my inbox. I can't tap anything on the screen. I just tried an update but nothing changed. Just can't do it.
Works great if used correctly
by Ameeba1 on 2016/01/01 10:41
I work all over the world and on one of my trips I lost all phone capabilities and all I had was my wife's IPhone 5 with no phone service. I found a coffee shop with wifi and downloaded the app. The key is you must be in decent wifi coverage and you must dial the number correctly, obviously without the international digits. And make sure your phone is not blocking the program, through settings you can check it. But for me it has been a lifesaver and even the longest calls from EU to US were only 2 cents a minute. But remember it is about having a decent wifi signal. God be with you and Merry Christmas!
Didn't work. Deleted it.
by VladStepanov on 2015/12/31 14:35
Can only send texts. Won't receive texts or calls. And where's my number? Ehhh, there are other good phone apps. See ya!
Google voice is sick
by Honeybee Mack on 2015/12/31 02:14
If you like google voice you must be taking stupid pill
NOT free. Lame.
by C1h9r8i8s on 2015/12/31 01:52
This app works about half the time. And it is not free. You have to purchase credits, or watch annoying ad videos to "earn free credits." Don't waste your time or money.
Horrible!!!!
by John Harvey on 2015/12/30 20:38
The old app worked ok, once they went to this credit system it's a joke. I also have an issue looking into my gmail acct. the apps continues to say that my password is incorrect, even after verifying on both my laptop and desktops OK. Google, please put out another app...PLEASE!!'nm
This app stinks
by Rbuddpb on 2015/12/30 18:37
It doesn't work it just kept glitching and being stupid
Ok app for calls, not so much for texts
by Lwhouse_037 on 2015/01/14 23:24
I downloaded this app to replace Talkatone, that discontinued using Google Voice and used their own service, and is limited on local numbers. I use the my Google Voice number for my small DJ/vid production business, so I can have a business number that is low in cost, and so I don't have to give out my personal number. So far I seem to be able to make calls ok with this app, how ever, texts I sent myself and some friends as a test, come from a different number then my google voice #, with a tag about get Mo+ to reply. Obviously this doesn't allow people to reply back without getting the app, so that is no good. I also tried the full Mo+ app and same thing. If Im gonna pay for an app, It should text with my GV number I link with it and allow people from any phone to text back. (One of the phones I texted as a test is a clam shell type phone, which does not use apps.) Another feature this app needs, that is available on the Mo+ app, is the ability to change the background and ringtone. If I would suggest one more feature, would be able to use the all the tones I have in my iphone, including my custom ones, not just the small list of extra tones you get with the paid version of Mo+. If these changes where made, I wouldn't mind paying a yearly subscription, even buying tokens ever now and then.
Tons of cons & pros
by Lucky guy Colorado on 2015/03/12 02:15
Cons- Doesn't reliably ring for incoming calls (which are free) even with good wifi. Voice quality can be anywhere from horrid to fine; it's the apps fault as much as a given wifi strength. So I borrow someone else's phone when I can to make calls (because of voice quality and to save points) and text with a computer (just to save fractions of a point) whenever possible. Some outgoing texts and outgoing calls I show up as a bizarre number. Video ads which earn points are usually unavailable. App crashes fairly often. Sometimes texts I should be receiving won't show up for as long as 10 days, seems to be for particular friends' phones. Pros- I can choose to watch ads, download apps, or pay nominal money to earn points to make calls and texts. Incoming always free. Missed calls and texts most often show up quickly so I stay in touch close to real time when I have wi-fi. Contacts are shared with gmail. Pretty interface mimics iPhone's updated phone app (I think that's behind why it's so slow and buggy). Works with iPhones and with iPod touch 5+. I have to re-log in when switching devices. Overall, it's 60-70% reliable if you're patient, with poor voice quality even with good wi-fi. But I think it's marginally better than Hangouts Oovoo, Vtalk, Talkatone, and the like.
So close yet so far.
by Akyyy on 2014/07/03 05:00
On paper, this app looks and feels better than every other app out there for using their Google voice account for phone calls and text messaging. Beautiful interface, combination of featuring both messages AND the ability to place calls (vs using the Google Voice app and the Google Hangouts app), and customizable with premium features as well. I can place calls and send messages perfectly but the real problem from my experience is that I cannot receive messages or calls unless I am in the app. I deleted any other messaging app and even turned off and turned on my ipod and was able to receive a huge influx of messages BUT if I receive any, they can be 10 or 15 minutes later. Such a shame because the interface is great and it works but unfortunately, the functionality for me is completely lost if I don't receive calls/messages when they are originally sent. Even though the Gv app is ugly as hell and I only use the hangouts app for calling, I know they work every single time. For that reason, I may have to revert to using those apps. To those getting good experiences and works flawlessly, I'm envious though as it is now, this app gets 3 stars.
Not bad for calling but beware
by scottm249b on 2014/12/15 22:23
Calling quality is not bad compared to other apps I have used. Calls generally go right through without delay and I've experienced little dropped calls. My complaint is attempting to earn credits. I have tried both methods to earn free credits and am extremely dissatisfied and frustrated, to the point where I will no longer be using this app as I have found another that actually gives you the free credits that you earn. I have been able to earn a few free credits from watching videos however most of the time after watching just a few it tells you there isn't anymore videos to watch. I have also tried to earn credits by downloading and opening apps and taking surveys but after trying that eight times without a single credit added to my account I have given up. Edit: since writing, I have been able to gain a few credits from downloading a few apps but still can't earn any from the videos. Better, but still has some issues.
GV Phone or Talkatone?
by 1MS on 2013/02/26 05:17
This app is way better than Talkatone, reason being: you can read messages offline and even send messages offline, which when dont go through you can resend easily. In that sense the app is much quicker to load as you can already start typing a text before it connects to the internet unlike Talkatone. The voice quality seems to be just as good. The adds on the bottom so far are appropriate unlike Talkatone ads. Some ways this app can improve: offer landscape orientation (a really easy addition), add settings so that after sending a message the keyboard wont disappear. Other ways to improver would be to offer multiple sign on. Other than that, excellent. I love how even while you're on the phone, text messages still appear. Great app, thank you for making something better than Talkatone!!
Fantastic!!!
by Russbo1 on 2013/04/07 17:59
Great reception... Sounded like I was on a real phone. I had to make a call to Straight Talk to attempt to get my cell phone's number ported over and activated so I used my iPad Mini and made the call. The sound was crisp and clear coming through the tablet's speaker and I could hear and understand everything the guy on the other end had to say. We even had a good laugh over the urgency and importance of getting my phone number properly ported over (see how easily you can make your customers jump ship with your crappy prices, service and business, Verizon?!). I'll be using this sucker a lot more, especially at home. Google Voice, you rock! And there were no problems with accounts, unlike Magic Jack's worthless app. This one more than makes up for MJ's unforgivable flaws. Get this app, you'll love it!
It's a love/hate relationship
by accidentmagnet on 2014/11/13 02:25
I only came to write this review because they offered me one free "credit" if I left them a five-star review. I have been using this app for years to receive google voice messages and calls and have no idea what these "credits" are for. Otherwise, I LOVE the fact that I can make and receive calls from the app with no associated phone number, allowing me to use an iPod touch or iPhone with no service plan as a phone. My biggest complaint is that there is a horrible delay during calls. Edit: after posting the above review with only a single star, I quickly discovered that the app wants "credits" to send any messages. This had never been the case before posting a poor review. Sketchy as he11.
Disappointing
by jj283088 on 2013/03/31 08:20
I thought this app was awesome at first - it is great at integrating google voice and google chat...I absolutely LOVE that I can take my google # with me, especially since I'm working internationally and it's an easy way for friends and family to call me. However, there is about a 5 sec. lag in conversation which makes it frustrating and difficult to talk on the phone. I switched back to using Bobsled to make free calls back to the States - the call is much more clear and no lag between conversation. In regards to the texting/google chat, I can't stand that the keyboard automatically shrinks back down after you send a message....and also that the ad is there at the bottom. There have been a # of times that I've accidentally hit the ad instead of the bar to reopen the keyboard. In all, on the surface it looks great, but upon further use it's not the best and could use some fixes.
Better than Google's own GV app
by Dnheller on 2013/10/10 02:34
I don't give 5 stars usually. But this is a great app. Not perfect but too good for 4 stars. Faster and better than native GV app for iOS. Worked perfectly for calling US numbers from Europe over wifi. I would pay for this app if they got rid of the ads and made a few refinements like a unified inbox/history like googles own app. Also need option to be able to configure it like Googles own native app to route incoming calls to land or mobile lines used with native GV and show alerts only for text message because it eats too much battery power to keep it in online mode for incoming calls that could go to the forwarding numbers I've set with google voice.
History in the making
by DCopen on 2012/12/10 06:10
You my friends are staring a potential game changer for the entire mobile communication community. With a few good tweaks these guys could potentially negate the need for cellphone minutes... Who needs a phone if you have an iPad mini with cellular? I like where your going with this guys, please please keep up the good work. Please contact me if you would like some suggestions or if you need a few testers. A few buddies and I am trying to find a way around the need for a cellphone in today's day and age and your app is one potential corner stone. We greatly appreciate your hard work. We look forward to your update! I dropped a star due to the not so flawless execution but I'm more than happy to up the score as you push out a new update.
D
by RTZyOklkffh on 2012/12/27 21:26
I think that though I haven't used this app for very long it is one of the most trustful and convenient apps you will get. It is made by a very popular and trustworthy company. It has THE best deals, better than all others. We get free calling without wifi and we can direct it towards gmail accounts. Insuring that not only is it a safe, secure and GREAT app, you will be able it base it off of your own gmail account opening up parental controls. Though other text messaging apps will try to persuade you with cool backgrounds, fonts and faces, you will be missing out on a fantastic app here. I strongly suggest using this app for it's great deals and safe, convenient, free calling and texting wherever you go!
Works Best in Wi-Fi but STILL Needs Fine-Tuning
by BubblePOPPA on 2016/04/27 17:23
When connected to Wifi, this app is a jewel for those needing an alternate number for...whatever reason. The calls are clearest and won't drop (which the app does OFTEN when making calls and NOT connected to wifi). I don't mind the ads, (because it is free, after all), and I appreciate the feature which you can watch videos for points instead of having to buy them in a bundle. My ONLY complaints for this app is how SOMEtimes the phone won't even ring out loud when calls are coming in and how often calls drop when not on a wifi connection. If the creators of it could somehow fine-tune this app to work EXACTLY as it's advertised, then it would be the best google voice phone app out there!!!
Seems to work OK, but...
by RadioGeezer on 2013/02/14 09:17
demands that I write a review after using it only once or twice. I am giving it two stars because (1) I haven't had a fair chance to evaluate it or use all of its features and (2) it seems to lack a way of adding callers to your call filtering list, but (3) the basic function does seem, at least, to work. I would give 4 stars if I had been given time to fully evaluate it to my satisfaction to determine whether the basic functions worked and were reasonably reliable, and 5 stars if you could access the call filtering list as well. Revised: Upgraded to 4 stars. Would get 5 stars (although it would be worth 6 stars) if it allowed you to easily access the call filtering list.
Wow seriously, you're charging now?
by Anajbbyy on 2014/10/27 02:52
First off the app doesn't even remotely work well enough for you to charge for usage of credits, I mean I don't get calls or texts unless I'm in the app and even then I have to constantly refresh it! Secondly, call quality is crappy and delayed! Calls are constantly dropped and takes forever to load! Last but not least, it doesn't fully connect with my google account, I don't get pictures and I can't send emojis so why the heck would I pay for a call service that can only do 5% of what my phone does or 1% of what my normal google app does? Crappy, deleting from my phone!!!!
No support to be found, not letting me login
by 4thGradeMom on 2015/09/11 07:47
Since every time I click app support, I'm redirected back to the App Store, I will write this review and hope the developer sees it. I downloaded this app to work with my Google voice account. The login screen says that I need a Gmail or Google account. The Google account that is tied to my phone number is set up with an email that is not a Gmail address. I attempted to login with those credentials numerous times to no avail... The app error message just kept saying incorrect password.... Sooooo I attempted to log in with another Google account that has a Gmail email tied to it aaaand continued to receive the same incorrect password error message when attempting to login... So I'm not sure what's going on with the app, or if it's just me but i definitely haven't been able to even begin to use this app since it's got stuck at the login page...
Poor telephone call quality
by Whit the s$&t on 2013/09/15 17:54
Although I really have enjoyed this app for use with my personal business, the telephone conversation quality is abysmal! When I make calls to people it constantly cuts out. This makes it very difficult to conduct telephone conversations even within Wi-Fi range. That being said, The app is wonderful regarding alerting me to telephone message that have been left for me, texting, and to enable an ambiguous telephone number to be used for clientele in my business.... wish I could use the telephone call app without having to have black outs, cut offs & static interference. I cannot understand nor can the person on the other end of the line Clearly hear the content of the conversations held via telephone call. Overall, good message app and text app, Very poor conversation quality for telephone use.
Great!
by Elena Cullen <3 on 2014/07/02 02:54
This app is a great app if u have access to a computer. But if not it wouldn't probably be the best choice for you. But so far it's helped me be able to communicate faster with family an friends in a much easier an faster more accessible way. Which is exactly what j need because it's great for me to use when I need to be able to use it. Cause it'll always bd there for me to use. Want I don't like though is constantly having to have wifi in order to txt or call it gets to be a pain but I live with it cause it's just one of those things ya know. But If you'd like to get this app this is definitely one I'd recommend you'd use! 😄👍
I love the app but please no updates
by Phil w g on 2014/06/14 03:23
Everything on this app works great on my iPod touch. (But I would request one thing: that we make a choice to have the app updated by the users themselves. I have experience that when an app is working well there is no reason to update and then when it is automatically updated, the app has more problems.) Everyone is buying iPhones, WHY? All I have is an iPod touch 3. As long as I can get a wifi connection, and that is mostly anywhere, I can use this app at my convenience. Besides, when you use your landline phone, it only works through your home phone jacks only.
Mo+ GVPhone
by Nanopod2 on 2012/11/24 08:09
This is a well designed app by way of graphics and handling. But is not very well designed for function like continual use. For example. (1)I won't get any texts or calls unless the app is running up along with my email. (sometimes it also goes offline automatically when you leave the app). (2)You can't make the keyboard bigger by tilting the devise. (3)There are no settings options. (wallpapers, ringtones, notifications, etc). (4)Sometimes it stores the last text into the texting window. Which is very annoying because you must erase everything you wrote the last time before you can write something new. I think they have a very good program. But there are several bugs that need fixing. Keep up the great work!
Google you Gotta fix this App!😡
by AndresAunt on 2016/04/11 02:23
I just purchased a new iphone (this app is suppose to be great with iPhones), but after unloading and loading this app back on to my new phone (twice!) it still won't let me sign in! It keeps telling me that "oops there was a problem with signing in" and then it wants me to go through all of these steps to check my security settings. I did that and nothing changed. Even though my password for Google works fine on my computer when I sign in. I noticed that several other reviews say the same thing about their password. I understand that the app is free and maybe there's not much revenue being generated from this app. But c'mon If it's going to be affiliated with the Google brand. Shouldn't it work properly? If the app is not going to be maintained, why offer it??? Get rid of it!! If it doesn't work it's useless!!
My Google Voice Usage
by Synapticalist on 2015/02/13 16:54
Well I have Google Voice and Tallkatone. When I added Google Voice to my G-mail, I had two numbers I had to remember, but since I was going to have to have a Google number, I just use my Google number to call my two phones and this app helps me to buy credits and still use Google Voice. Even though the Google Voice app can work with Talkatone but it cost more to get credit that way. But with this phone app, the credits are cheaper and it works with my Google Voice App. I was able to add another number and now my phone is fully operational but only on wifi
Not free anymore
by doinkyTHEcup on 2014/10/21 13:33
Then why the 5 stars you ask? Because it's the only way you can get a free credit to make outgoing calls. The same calls that used to be free. I only used this app because it was completely free to make calls when my cell line is shut off. But the quality of calls was always pretty bad. It's insanely laggy, like talking on a satellite phone. The longer you talk the longer the delay becomes. If you have a google voice number it's just easier to use google hangouts to make outgoing calls and texts and just use this crappy app to receive them.
Great option for using Google Voice account abroad
by MAD3EUR on 2013/05/02 17:59
I live in Europe & I purchased a Google Voice credit months ago. I could never use the native G Voice app to make calls since it would not allow me to register/use a non-US phone number. *PHONE for G Voice & GTalk solved that problem*, since it only requires my Gmail account. It automatically uploaded my GVoice credit (and GVoice US number) when I signed into the app. Now I can call the US & Europe for much cheaper than my regular European cell provider!! UPDATED Review: I have enjoyed using this app, BUT the SMS notifications are received at least 1 hour (or more) later than they are actually sent (and received promptly in the native G Voice app). That is very disappointing. Minus 2 stars.

HAS NOT WORKED AT ALL IN 48 HOUR
by Veggies aureus on 2014/09/11 15:38
This past Tuesday night, the 9th, I pay ten dollars on my card so my texts will go through, as they suddenly stopped. (I only have an itouch and iMessage only works with other apple users.....not everyone uses an apple product) Therefore, I cannot use whatsapp, and I must use an alternative texting app to stay in communication with other users. For as long as I've had my itouch, just under two years, I have had no problem, until now. Trust me, the idea of suddenly having to pay made me livid but I was excited to FINALLY be able to send pictures! Right now, my problem is that I wasted ten bucks, because I paid Monday night and come Tuesday, no one was receiving my texts nor was I getting any of theirs. Heard whatsapp is great, yet I need something that will work on my iTouch 😔
This app is such bull**it!!!
by Rated+ R on 2013/11/23 01:22
I was giving this app the benefit of a doubt and didn't want to write a bad review but it forced me to do so today. Not only the call quality is total garbage people can't hear me and it delay the conversation just like it delays text messages. If someone send me a text now it will take hours before I get the text. Very very poor sound quality, just incase it's not bad enough now I can't open the app to do anything without the ads taking me straight to iTunes to download other crappy apps they are advertising for. Fix that stupid bug of yours that keeps taking me to iTunes to download your stupid ads! I do not want download any of your crappy ads!your app is bad enough to make me cringe every time I try to use it. App is much more useless now! Will delete it for better options ASAP!
Convenient backup
by c8h10n4o2 on 2015/03/21 23:21
Definitely has tons of room for improvement before considering it as a reliable, primary option for calls/texts but it is a great backup for making calls via wifi when my cellphone provider has weak coverage. Thankfully, this is usually when I'm indoors or on a flight, etc anyway. There are still other caveats though. For example, "free" actually means earning credits by doing tasks such as writing a review like this! Overall, still a nice option to have. Worth comparing to Google Hangouts for call quality, ease of use, etc.
Ploy
by Javelin69 on 2015/09/19 03:08
I was looking for an alternative to the Google Voice or Google Hangouts apps which you can make calls an texts through for free, because they only work so-so. This app links to your Google Voice account like the other two native Google apps, but this one you have to obtain their "credits" to make texts or calls. Some credits are free but you have to do things like download other apps to get them, but they also offer an option the buy them. I didn't go far down that road because I don't like the idea of a third party making money off of something that supposed to be free, just because they caught your attention, and I don't want to jump through advertising hoops to so either. I don't know why the app is so highly rated, that's the reason why I downloaded it.
Great app; needs a couple features to be perfect
by Cristo72 on 2013/02/03 20:09
This app has the potential to be the best Google Voice Phone app I've seen out there. It certainly has the best user interface. While it is not as feature rich as some other apps, I hope some of those are the natural next features to be implemented. Add these features and fix a few bugs and it would be 5 stars. This would become my one and only Google Voice phone app if it… 1) Allowed removal of the ads (i.e., for a premium, of course) 2) Supported push notifications so if the app wasn't running, it would still ring/text 3) Allowed me to check/manage Google Voice voicemail inside the app 4) Showed me how many Google Voice credits I have available I don't understand why there are two almost identical apps by Mo+ (GV Phone & Mo+). The Mo+ version allows for premium ad removal, but they seem to be the same otherwise I'll probably use Mo+ simply for the ad removal, but wish I understood the intention of the developer for having two nearly the same apps.
Problematic
by 1MamaKat on 2014/04/14 16:28
The call quality is poor, I often get complaints that I sound as if I am talking underwater. On my end the calls can come in spotty- as if the other person is on a bad cell connection. The ads are terrible! They will pop up and redirect the call after a certain point or the ones places at the bottom are so close to the icons you hit them accidentally. What's worse is the lag upon answer- since the last update it often sends callers to voicemail even though I answer the call. Often the program freezes or simply won't respond when I try and press the buttons. On some incoming calls after answering the ring continues- so the other person has to out shout the ring throughout the entire call.
I love this app!!
by xXtidusXx on 2014/01/15 17:18
I found this app looking for an app to use my inactive iPhone to make VoIP calls, I would have preferred to just use google voice but the app does not make the call over an Internet connection, it places calls through your cell phone only, when I found this app I thought it was too good to be true, and its been 100% perfect so far, texting is a little slow to receive but that's the only fault, I can place and receive calls over an Internet connection using my google voice number, thank you so much for this perfect app!!
Oh I see how it is...
by msdrpepper on 2014/11/27 15:34
I was searching for Google Apps and saw this one claiming to be Google Talk, where I could use my Google number I got several years ago. I've never been able to log in (it demands your Gmail log in and password). So far it always claims I entered my info incorrectly. But then I started getting emails from Gmail notifying of attempts into my gmail account and to change my password. That makes me think this app is trying to harvest my gmail credentials (despite claims that it is "encrypted". So I am going to bold and give this a .25 star rating, which will show up as a 1 star rating only because Apple wasn't brilliant enough to offer ratings of less than one star! I would advise you to skip the 5 stars for "free" credit because this app gives nothing but free headaches!! :(
Pointless App
by Skierbarry on 2014/11/11 08:03
This used to be a support for less but useful app. However then they started charging for phone calls and continue to inundate on with too many adds. For texting and making phone calls I'm happy to use my Google voice app. There's never a fee to use it as long as you are using Wi-Fi which is the only time I make phone calls through the Internet. Google voice app also gives you unlimited texting. So why should I pay for phone calls gimmicks trying to earn coins time etc. when I can simply use the Google Voice app. Or even better for just making calls from your phone or tablet is the magic jack app. Calls are always free and it's a good service.
Good design, bad voice quality
by Beckers88 on 2013/03/08 02:17
I really wanted to like this app & even did for a few days. It lets me receive calls at my GV #, something even Google's app doesn't do! And, the UI design is great and quick to navigate. But, once I started using it for voice calls, the bad news came. The person on the other end kept having a hard time hearing me and the app kept telling me that network quality was poor. As a test, I immediately switched my call to Skype and my callee said I could be heard without difficulty. So, it wasn't the network, it's was the app. Blah. Back to Skype I go. I hope they get these issues solved at some point as I really would like to use this app.
Not Bad , Not perfect ... Alright

GV Phone & Mo+ are both (the same) useful apps. I have GV Phone installed on my iPod Touch 4th Gen. Easy to set up, just enter your GV login details and voila! My complaint: I really wish there was a way to answer incoming calls from the lock screen. I'm currently unable to answer while the screen is locked. Despite hearing the ringer, I am given no option other than to miss the call, unlock the screen and then call the number back every time. Not only is this a hassle, it's a major inconvenience... Especially when I have to miss a call from a private or unknown number that simply can't be returned. I still can't live without it though!
Unreliable for getting calls
by Pio Masaki on 2013/08/07 00:09
App works great for everything except receiving calls. I've yet to see it actually work even one time on 2 devices, it will ring consistently, but answering is either so slow and laggy they hang up, goes to voicemail, or just crashes. This is when the device is asleep when it comes in, I've never had a call come in while I'm using the device so it may work better that way. If you need reliable incoming call performance, look elsewhere. 3 stars for texting working 100% so far as well as gtalk working very well, just fix incoming call performance, that's kind of an important aspect to a phone application.
Greatest calling & texting app ever
by Connor Hyman on 2014/04/07 04:00
I got this app last year and I have been loving it so far. I have an iPod touch 5 so I don't have the real phone app. Also, you can only text people with apple device. The main reason I bought this app is so I could text my dad. My dad has a samsung galaxy so I can't text him via iMessage. I love this app and recommend it to any one who has an iPod touch or an iPhone with no SIM card. To conclude, when I bought this app, I thought that it was operated by Google because it made me sign in with my gmail account/google voice.
I've had this for about 10 minutes

I just downloaded this and I'm very happy that it works in the background. This is so key when you want to be away from the office but appear online. The only drawback I've seen about on line status is that there isn't a status to show you're away. Only has three options: online, busy and offline :) Happy for now that I can put this in the background and still look like I'm online though. I haven't actually used it for IMs yet but I'll update as soon as I test that
Love Google Talk app!!
by BigDLittleD2Squared on 2014/10/06 08:32
I love this app! I love GOOGLE TALK in general! Google did a great job on creating and executing the concept of google talk, and now with this app, it's even easier to use google talk and to be able to keep in touch with anyone that contacts you through it. No more having to sign into gmail and google voice to find out if you have any new notifications, they are now right at your finger tip, and you get real time notifications of any incoming calls, incoming texts and any new voice mails! Thumbs up and five stars to this great app!!
Stay connected on Wi-Fi
by CyA on Wi-Fi on 2015/05/24 00:53
Well If I just pay my outrageous phone bill, I wouldn't be going through all this drama trying to get the right apps. And connect to a site that doesn't time-out or boot me off. What about the darn password? WILL SOMEBODY PLEASE JUST TELL US! Why is it such a big freakin' deal to know a password to something it labeled "guest" ! Last time I check "guest" meant " invited". So stay w/this app. Alone! And Why do they ask for a password anyway? I'm so staying connected for life.. If my remarks got you confused.. You ain't seen nothin' yet!!! Just pay to stay up!
Annoyance
by CrasherVonRazor on 2013/11/25 15:09
The adds are incredibly annoying, they are placed in just the perfect spot that I end up clicking that crud when I'm in the middle of trying to communicate via text, it slows my phone down and wastes my time. I would be willing to pay for the app for that to be gone, please make that an option. Please make it so I can type in landscape mode!!!! I have bilateral carpal tunnel and a torn tendon so it is painful to always be typing in portrait mode. The call quality nearly renders the phone feature unusable with the way it cuts out and has such a pronounced delay. I can never seem to answer a call either, unless I have the app open and in my hand. If the phone feature was more functional I would want to be able to choose my own ringtone. The one provided is too quiet. I can't hear it if it's in my pocket, purse or I'm in any public place. Recently I have been experiencing a glitch that causes text messages from the previous day to all come through on the chat log while in the middle if another conversation. It's rather confusing. I've just about switched back to relying solely on my email.....
SMS and background calls
by jdf729 on 2014/04/09 16:34
Sent myself several texts to this app from another phone. About an hour later all 5 hit at once. Sent another and still waiting for it over an hour now. Now they still come 15 minutes late. They hit the native GV app instantly. Sending a text with this app works fine. Wish I could take calls from the lock screen like the native iPhone function which is the only reason I have this app. It will alert me to incoming calls and use my GV voicemail instead of forwarding GV calls to my real mobile number. Unfortunately it takes using both apps to get the total functionality needed.
PERFECT!! Beautiful Interface! Great Service!!
by imtigger2 on 2014/07/08 21:32
I can FINALLY use my Google Voice number to call from WiFi. Finally. Google will usually screen calls, do VM and forward to your cell phone. Now I don't need a cell or HM phone in the middle of that. This works great for calls out. NOTE: To receive calls immediately, you HAVE TO SET IT UP with Google through a PC, NOT THIS APP (or google app). Google Voice will intercept every incoming call, as always. This app will allow you to make calls OUT using your GV number, to return phone calls or make phone calls. I love it!! -- Personally, I don't like answering calls, I like messages and calling back at MY convenience. There's too many crap calls and wasted time now days. Biz, sales, etc.. That's why we get GVoice numbers in the 1st place. Give family your MAIN cell or HM # and use GV for excellent VM services and this app to return calls. THANK YOU... EXCELLENT APP!!
Great Potential but Needs Improvements
by App--Man on 2012/07/29 20:05
The user interface is very nice, visually appealing, and clean. I like the way things are laid out but there are some fundamental problems with this app that should be fixed. Receiving Text Messages: I can send texts fine but the app does not receive text messages. I receive all of the persons texts much later (in about 2-3 hours sometimes much more). Sending Text Messages: Not really a problem but when I send text messages sometimes the app secretly puts a link in the text message without me knowing about it. I found this out because I was texting my brother he later showed me the messages with the links in them. Receiving Calls: I have to keep the app running in the background to receive calls. If I close it out in multitasking I do not receive calls. Features: Lots of good featurs but I would like to see voicemail, and a way to change the ringtone and text notifications. Otherwise its a great app that I really hope to see improved. Thanks.
Works like a dream

Of all the Google voice clients that I have tried, this software performs the best. I use it both for text messaging as well as for making phone calls and the voice quality is unparalleled. I see that some people complain about the ads. I really don't have a problem with the ads. They don't interfere with anything that I do with this app. The app would probably look nicer without ads, but since these ads are not getting in my way, I see no reason to complain about them.

AT&T, Apple iPhone 5, LTE. I ALWAYS have faster than 4G service (LTE) or high-speed WIFI running so service is not the issue here! I only give 1 or 5 Star Ratings. Either the app works as stated and gets 5*****, or doesn't and gets 1*! Sorry Mo+ but you do not receive extra Stars for occasionally working. I tried to save some money and the bulk of having to carry 2 cell phones BUT looks like that is what I will have to do. I use this app to separate business from pleasure and so far I have been extremely unhappy with it's performance. Loosing business because I am unreachable is unacceptable! Clients call and text me expecting immediate response (and I would) ...if it would only get to me right away! I run the app in the background as people are suggesting BUT to no avail; it makes little to no difference at all. At times I do not receive business text messages for up to 3 hours AFTER they are sent to me and that is just bad business and no fault to me. Calls do not go through, and are dropped when they do! APP IS GOOD IN THEORY... HOWEVER SHOULD NOT BE RELEASED TO THE PUBLIC UNTIL ALL BUGS ARE FIXED, AND WORK AS STATED!
Just got the app and I already love it!
by K4tierose on 2014/10/24 06:17
I just got the app to be able to keep my Google Voice calls separate, but the way it is set up, I might just use it as my main phone service. I love that you can earn credits for the phone calls that aren't covered, and you can call anyone in the US for free. It's perfect for keeping your phone bill low, or for people like me that have a number for work and another for personal. It has all the options your phone does, but it keeps it separate!
Needs some serious work
by Sexytoes9436 on 2013/03/05 21:46
This app may provide free texting, but I have others that do as well. They are much faster. My main complaint about this app concerns the call quality. Almost every single call either drops, has delayed speech, or the caller on the other end can't hear me at all. I've checked to see if its my Internet. I'm running 15mb so that's ruled out. In fact, I stood right beside my router while on a call today, and the person couldn't hear a thing I was saying. Come on Google! You guys have the resources at hand to make this a five star app! I'm tired of having to watch trailers for apps, just to get minutes to call. Text+ works just fine on wifi. This app should too.
Would be perfect, if it was free.
by Cauley396 on 2015/01/08 06:15
This is a great app. The call quality is great, and if you have a decent internet connection, there isn't any reception or connection issues. The texting is good as well, no lag at all. The only problem with this app, is that you have to earn "credits", to text and/or call. To send one text message, and to make one phone call, cost 1 credit each. You have to watch a 30 second video for a single credit, or download AND run an app. I find this a little ridiculous. If if was free, it would be perfect.
