Comments on: Apple hasn’t rejected Google Voice iPhone app after all http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2009/08/21/apple-hasnt-rejected-google-voice-iphone-app-after-all/ Where media and technology meet Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:48:25 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Tyler http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2009/08/21/apple-hasnt-rejected-google-voice-iphone-app-after-all/#comment-368444 Tue, 27 Oct 2009 19:19:53 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/?p=18808#comment-368444 I think that Apple’s explanation is reasonable. Google Voice aims to replace the ENTIRE user experience of the iPhone. Because the Google Voice would be used over WiFi networks AND cellular networks, you would literally never have to use Apple’s telephone system. With Skype and like apps, you can only make calls in the application while using WiFi, so when you are out of WiFi area, you still have to rely on Apple’s telephone system.

I still do wish that Apple would accept the Google Voice app, but until that day, I think that their explanation is reasonable.

Other apps, such as Skype or Truephone’s, “alter the iPhone’s distinctive user experience by replacing the iPhone’s core mobile telephone functionality and Apple user interface with its own user interface”.
