I' m new here and just want to say that I'm loving WebOS and its development community.
I would like to request an app similar to Groove IP for android, which uses google voice to make WiFi calls. This app is different from most others because it doesn't require sipgate or like services. It works with the option of sending calls to google chat instead of your phone.
I hope someone will take this into consideration so that we can get even closer to using this device to its full potential.
Yesterday, 08/30, I emailed the developers of Groove IP requesting a version of their app be made for WebOS, particularly the touchpad.
Here is their response:
We are porting to other OS's. *We were originally planning a WebOS port but due to the recent uncertainty about WebOS's future and the Touchpad being canceled I don't think the port will happen anytime soon. *We'll target other operating systems and revisit WebOS later."
So, all hope is not lost but it looks as if the app will becoming later even though the touchpad is in the hands of thousands more people who would be willing to pay for an app such as this. =\
Again, I hope that someone will take on this project.. Or maybe we can somehow convince the developers of Groove IP that WebOS is more than worthy of their attention and focus now, especially while it's hot.
