We all know what the Google Voice Application is all about and since the Application has taken to where it should have been-cellphones, many have endorsed the service that works on BlackBerry and other Android handsets. iPhone was also in the scheme of things for Google but it now looks that the relationship between the two giants may be somewhat strained after the Google Voice App submitted for approval up to 6 weeks ago was rejected. It is not that Apple does not reserve the right to reject applications, but when one bears a Google backing, it probably shouldn’t have happened. To make things interesting, here is a quote from the Google Spokesperson
We work hard to bring Google applications to a number of mobile platforms, including the iPhone. Apple did not approve the Google Voice application we submitted six weeks ago to the Apple App Store. We will continue to work to bring our services to iPhone users – for example, by taking advantage of advances in mobile browsers.
There may be AT&T involved somewhere as the Google Voice App lets you send free text messages and even those international calls are severely denting to the prospects of AT&T. This may not auger well for the future of the App as far as it running on the iPhone is concerned.
