GVoice does not turn your touchpad into a WiFi phone. Nearly all other features of google voice are supported,as far as I am aware, to some degree.

I would love to hear you guys input as to what would make for a great gvoice app. Obviously the phone thing would be nice, but it uses an entirely different service that uses a library that is notoriously difficult to get working on a native compiler let alone on a cross compiler with limited support libraries.

but I would love to hear suggestions for other gvoice related features!

The google voice feature that I am interested in, is to receive and make google voice calls from my webOS phone and tPad over the internet. For that, along with the ability to access and listen to my voice mails, I would be willing to spend $10 or maybe even more.

ive never used androids. I use the texting part of gvoice as my primary messenger though. That's why I wrote it unfortunately its not in the app catalog until the next update gets approve because someone at google screwed up the main google voice page by throwing html comments in the middle of javascript.. Doh.

I'd love to have voicecalling via wifi too.. But its a totally different thing. Yes it ties to the same functions as google voice but google voice does not do it. Its also far more difficult to get working. :P

There's a vote going on for a webOS version. I logged in and placed my votes.

i just heard of this talkatone app for android and iOS yesterday. phone calls for free over wifi or 3G?

is anyone working on adapting this tech for webOS?

i voted, as well as posted a comment on their FB page stating i'd buy their premium svc if it was available on webOS.

Unfortunately, webOS does not have suitable APIs for building a real VoIP app that can be put into the catalog. I suspect it is possible to do it, via some trickery that is not normal, and not allowed in the app catalog, but I don't have the knowledge of how to operate gstreamer on a level that allows me to achieve it.

Placed my vote, sad thing is that I'm sure our voices will be unheard....

I think that Google mainly doesn't even care for WebOS at all, I have placed WebOS support for several forums from thousands of developers worldwide. And so far, nothing has happened due to of course the incompetence of HP with this whole affair of dropping support for the third time with older WebOS versions and also no hardware makes things worse.

so then....

the only way to make free calls over the web...

would be to get an old android phone, install the talkatone app, then freetether it to my Pre via BT and use its data connection?????

THAT'S A GREAT IDEA, I'M TRYING IT TOMORROW!!!!!!!



y'no i probably should have added a disclaimer to all my comments the past two weeks, that i've been recovering from a concussion.

Actually, you can search around these forums and pick up Linphone.

i just read the thread on Lin Alpha. thank you for mentioning it.

i may try to volunteer to help with alpha testing if they're still in that phase. (the thread did start quite a while back)

i have this T-Mo plan that's no longer available as far as i can tell, and i'd rather not drop it if i could make calls over data. it's $30 for 100mins talk and 5Gig data. no one is offering that kinda price for that much data anymore, and i know if i let it expire that'll be the end of that.

i may just have to concede and pop that sim card into a friend's android as a christmas present.
