Developer Sean Kovacs has reportedly started the appeal process for getting Google Voice on to Apple's iOS app store, according to Boy Genius Report. The site is reporting that Kovacs is following Apple's new appeal board process for rejected apps. Technically the app has been in limbo for months, neither approved nor denied.
Last week Apple published its first written guidelines for submitting apps for the iOS. While still vague in some areas, the guide is finally something put in words. Kovacs said he carefully read the new guidelines before starting the appeal process. Surely Apple has to expect Google Voice will be coming back around, and interestingly BGR is reporting that Kovacs has been in contact with Apple when before email was going unanswered.
Google Voice offers some interesting unconventional phone options. It basically acts as a front-end for all your phones, having one phone number that's tied into all your phone numbers. Some spiffy features include the ability to listen to a voicemail before answering a call, download voicemail to computers, and getting text transcription of voicemail messages.
