Is there some reason why Google cannot post this app on their website and we download it? Do all apps on the iPhone have to pass through the Apple iPhone app store?
I have google voice and an iPhone so I would like to try it out. Do I have to jailbreak my phone to do it? Apple may end up making a lot of people angry using tactics like this. If the ATT&T product is not the best product Apple should not be the deciding we are stuck with the inferior product.
Google should be able to post whatever they want to post on their site. You should be able to dl from Google. You should be able to upload to your iPhone (if you really are the owner, and not merely a licensee), and, if Apple, or AT&T, doesn't like it, they should have the option to withhold support if Google's app cooks the phone. But, if you could dl this app from google and run it on the iPhone (whose iPhone, we aren't sure), then ATT doesn't reap as much liucre because their Apple cash funnel just got broken. Just like your RAZR - why did you have to buy ringtones or rent a calendar app from Verizon? wasn't it YOUR RAZR? iCal synched with early RAZRs, but VZ plugged that leak. Here, AT&T is in full, preemptive Verizon emulation mode. They all suck.
The Bill of Rights doesn't grant us our rights, it merely enumerates them.
I think Verizon wins in the who sucks worst department. That RAZR I had I could never use the camera in high resolution because Verizon's sucktastic service to phone the photos to you could not handle that large a file.
Even though it had a USB connector the software on board was dumbed down so I could not hook it up to a computer. I could never understand the ring tone concept because I find it inconceivable that someone would actually pay money in order to look like a complete dumbåss when their phone rang and Justin Timberlake sang something.
That I had turn by turn voice GPS on that old five year old RAZR and I still don't have any good GPS software on the iPhone is a tad ridiculous too but that's another story.
