Oh, Google Voice, Did You Not Anticipate Apple Creating Issues?

Google Voice is an indispensible tool for me.  I use it to field calls, screen calls, and, most importantly, I use the SMS feature because I refuse to pay the wireless provider money for sending text that cost them almost nothing.

Well, after the release of iPhone 4S, the Google Voice app stopped working.  Crash, crash, crash.  So, if you're like me and on iPhone 4S, well, then, chances are that your app will not work and have not been working.  This was also confirmed by this Electronista post.

However, it seems to function perfectly on the iPhone 4 with iOS 5.  Anyway, hopefully, Google works this out.  Initially, I was gonna get set to blame Apple for this but I am not sure Google is really out of the woods as far as the blame goes.

We'll just have to see how quickly Google turns this around.  The GV app has been pulled and is no longer available.
