Greetings, everyone! Those of you who already have GVoice most likely already know, but:
GVoice is now known as SynerGV, and version 2 - a complete re-write - is available for the TouchPad, adding Messaging integration to the mix, as well as several more new features.
Version 1 will continue to be supported until such time as it is possible to move the new version to other platforms - likely starting with webOS 2. webOS 1 does not have the Synergy messaging functions that webOS 2+ has, and therefore will not see the v2 update unless in the future, we go forward with building v2 so that it can be used outside of webOS.
v2 has tight integration with many features special to webOS 2+: Just Type, Tap2Share, Synergy, and a lot of internal things that have been built specifically to take advantage of webOS features that I was not aware of or knew how to use when I wrote v1.
I do hope to do a phone release for v2 in the not very distant future, but as is -- certain components that are required to operate, are only available in webOS v3+. I'm not entirely certain how much work it will take to make these functions compatible with webOS v2. I've seen several accesses on the website from people launching it on 2, presumably using App Tuckerbox -- all you will get is the app hanging at the point where it tries to find the accounts. If (or when) I have it working on phones, there will certainly be an update, and I will extend the special offer that I extended for the last 20 days to get v2 at a significant discount for existing v1 owners.
If you purchase v1 on a TouchPad now, you will be able to In-App Purchase v2 at a half-price discount, so the total price paid for each would be the same price as purchasing v2 outright.
Those who have pre-purchased v2 via the existing In-App Purchase, I am sending promo codes out to you via Google Voice. It will take a few days to send them all out, as Google is throttling my outgoing messages to a handful per hour (this, I guess, is what happens when you send out 50 messages in bulk, and only receive a couple back in reply). Please be patient, and if I have received your receipt, you should receive a code by the end of this week. I will post a message in this thread when promo codes have been sent to all the people I have received receipt information from. If you do not receive your promo code by that time in your Google Voice inbox, then please contact me with your receipt information ,and I will make sure that gets taken care of.
