Apple The news just broke that Apple has rejected the official upcoming Google Voice application, and stopped distributing the third party "GV" application, an app that was previously authorized. Read on for a quick commentary, from the point of view of not an Apple or Google fangirl, but from someone who genuinely appreciates VoIP SIP (even if Google Voice itself is not VoIP, read on). For those who have read my blog over the years, would probably remember my VoIP-related rants since 2005. UPDATE: A more direct, more personal, reply from me to Apple and AT&T.

Just to elaborate: this limitation (voice only over WiFi) holds only for iPhone - you CAN use Skype for other mobile platforms (Windows Mobile, Nokia) on cellular networks.

The same voice-over-WiFi-only limitation holds for Fring application on iPhone - and NOT for Fring on other mobile platforms. It is by Apple's dictate.
