The past few days have seen the launch of some very useful and meaningful iOS apps on Cydia for the Jailbroken iDevices, CallBar and Apptivator to name a couple. CallBar, as the name suggests gives iPhone users the ability to, well, bar calls. It lets the users to continue doing whatever they are doing on their iPhone giving them the choice to take the call or not. It is surprising that this option is not available even in the upcoming iOS 5. Apptivator meanwhile is an app which lets users assign dual functions to app icons on the springboard. The secondary function is accessed by double tapping the icon.
After these two amazing apps, we have another app which is just as useful. It is called GVIntegrated. What this app does is install a Google Voice client tweak making it the part of the default iPhone app. Making it a part of the default iPhone app lets the user make a Google Voice call from the iOS dial pad instead. Now this is something a frequent user of Google Voice will love. Even others will find this very convenient. GVIntegrated gets system level access for VOIP letting users to open it without the use of 3rd party applications. This also means that GVIntegrated has no springboard icon, instead all configurations are done from the Settings app.
“Unlike other Google Voice apps, GVIntegrated’s primary user interface is the same Phone application you already use. GVIntegrated allows you to specify which calling experience you prefer globally as well as per contact.” developer Justin Williams said.
Users have two options to call contacts. Calls to contacts can be set to go through Google Voice or the carrier. Also, users can choose between the two services while making the call. GVIntegrated can be added to an app called SMS GV Extension, making it possible for a user to both make voice calls and send SMSs.
The app can be yours for just $2 and can be purchased from the Cydia app store through BigBoss repo.
