GoVoice, the popular Google Voice client with push notifications has been submitted for Marketplace approval. Being a 0.1 upgrade, we can expect some minor improvements and bug fixes. Developer Nicholai Yu provides some details of what to expect:
- Performance improvements
- New live tile design to make the count more visible (see above)
- Fixed the bug where settings cannot be saved
- Miscellaneous bug fixes
Sounds good to us. We've been successfully using the push feature exclusively on our Focus now, giving up on traditional SMS (AT&T's 200 is a little meager). Hopefully the update will come in the next few days. Stay tuned.
On a related note, GoVoice's biggest competitor, GVoice, is stuck in what can only be described as "Microsoft approval hell", a fate we wish upon no developer. Seriously, read that post and know the situation still has not changed for Koush in 22 days. Come on MS, help a brotha out.
