Google answered the prayers of many iPhone users by releasing a native iOS app for Google Voice after being denied entry to the App Store over a year ago. The free official app, while lacking many preference settings found on paid third-party offerings, is otherwise slicker in every way.
While there are plenty of good iOS apps that can already get the job done, Google is now flipping the switch on being able to edit Google Docs documents on the go from mobile devices including the iPad.
The heavens parted and the gods smiled upon tech fans this Tuesday, November 16. No, we’re not talking about The Beatles finally landing on iTunes (although that was also pretty cool) -- Apple has finally blessed the official Google Voice app for the iPhone, and you can download it for free right now.
That's right, kiddies. Every year it's the most magical time of the year when all the good little boys and girls who have to travel during the holidays are rewarded with wide open WiFi, free of charge, from those jolly elves in Mountain View.
If you prefer Google Calendar to Apple’s iCal (and their MobileMe cloud syncing solution), developer Readdle has you covered with an updated version of their slick Calendars app, bringing Google Tasks and universal compatibility to the table.
Enjoy this combination of tech giants while it lasts! Apple has joined up with Google, Facebook, and Yahoo among others. The cause? Trying to take down Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen's patent infringement suit brought about last August.
We've gotten accustomed to take the words of Gene Munster, Senior Research Analyst at Piper Jaffray, with a grain or block of salt or two upon occasion. There have been a couple instances where his numbers sound like they were arrived at by reaching into a hat and pulling something out. His latest analysis though, sounds right about dead-on.
Android users have already had the pleasure of making this app a staple in their mobile lives, and now iPhone users can, too! Google Googles is now available on the iPhone in the Google Mobile app. The application lets you search the world around you by snapping photos, and it also delivers relevant search results to you based on your location so that if you're taking a picture of the foggy Golden Gate Bridge, it will not show you a photo of a landmark on the other side of the country.
When Google TV set up their site, they showed off the nifty feature of your smartphone, whether Android or iPhone, acting as the remote. There was a good reason for this apart from the coolness aspect. And it's the stuff of nightmares.
We figured it had to happen, what with Apple TV being an iOS device, that after jailbreaking the device, people would want to run apps on it. Steve Jobs alluded to apps and an Apple TV App Store coming someday, and like someday for Apple, the jailbreak community tends to get there first. But there's a catch -- for now.
