The Google Voice app for iOS has recently received what seems like a long overdue update. Of course, while it seems like it has been a long time since the previous update rolled into the iOS App Store — this update is still on the smaller side. Needless to say, it does bring a few new goodies. For example, this update brings the ability to begin new text messages directly from the inbox. There is also a new fallback option to call without Google Voice if the call fails. One word of warning here, if you go to the fallback in this case, your regular mobile number will be used as the caller ID. In other words, if you are trying to use Google Voice to hide your regular mobile number, you probably want to avoid the fallback calling option. Otherwise, this Google Voice update brings a bug fix for dialing on the iPad and iPod touch as well as some “minor” text-related bugs. Finally, this update brings the Google Voice app up to version 1.4.2 where it remains available by way of the iOS App Store with support for devices running iOS 3.0 or later.
