Google Voice on the iPhone

Google_voice_on_iphone_screens

After being previously rejected from the App Store for difficult to understand reasons (http://www.tuaw.com/2009/12/25/is-google-voice-available-for-the-iphone/), Google has returned today with an alternative -- in the form of a web application. If you already have a Google Voice account, just visit http://m.google.com/voice from your iPhone, and you can now do outbound dialing through Google Voice.

It even looks mostly like a native application if you click the '+' button in the browser to add it to your home screen. It first dials a local number, which it routes through to your desired callee -- as my friend Jason pointed out, if you do the AT&T A-List option, you can add that number to your list, and effectively have unlimited outbound dialing!
