Voice Mac is a great Google Voice app for your Mac

Do you have a Google Voice account? Do you know what Google Voice is? Google Voice is Google’s online phone service. I want to call it VOIP, which it is at times, but it’s so much more. Once you choose your Google Voice number, you can pick your number or choose the number you currently use, you can set up your account. Let us say that you choose a Google number similar to mine, area code plus the letters DAFT, Google will then forward your phone calls to a number of your choice. If you dial my Google Voice number it rings on my cell phone. GV also allows for SMS, short message system aka texting, and voice mail. Android phone users and hacked iPhone users will tell you the benefits of free calling and free texting but to me, it is so much more. If I am in class at the JC and I don’t have cell service but I have a wifi signal and my Mac Book Pro, I am still able to text message my girlfriend on her phone using my Google Voice account and this nifty application. With Voice Mac, I can text message in a manner similar to iChat. The app icon and even the interface bares a very similar resemblance to Apple’s iChat. Voice Mac integrates with your Contacts, showing you the numbers and pictures of the people in your Address Book, and Growl. Growl notifications seem to pop up twice for me for some reason but at least the feature is working. As you could guess, Voice Mac is still in it’s beta phase but it’s truly worth taking a look at. If you don’t have a Google Voice account but you want one, you will have to request an invite.

Download Voice Mac from the Voice Mac website or from the Box File Widget here on the homepage.
