4 Types of GV Mobile Users

April 25th, 2009

First Type: Hardcore Google Voice user that downloads GV Mobile, everything works fine out of the box. This person may leave a good review, or none at all.

Second Type: Hardcore Google Voice user that downloads GV Mobile, runs into some hiccups while using it, and gets help. Everything works out in the end; everybody is happy. This person may leave a good review, or none at all.

Third Type: Has a Google Voice account that they never use, but downloads GV Mobile anyway. This person runs into some hiccups while using it and never seeks support (email, comments, forums, etc). This person immediately heads over to leave a nasty review.

Forth Type: Competitor that downloads GV Mobile just to leave a nasty review.

I thought I would share this with my loyal followers. Love you guys/gals!

I do speak and fully understand the English language. I’d rather focus on features and functionality over grammar any day!

App Reviewer 007 and ColdFusion, email me or seek support so your issues get resolved. I’ve seen nothing from you so far.

    @Josh K History yes, VM no. VM is downloaded only upon playing. Just imagine downloading all the VMs – that would take a good minute or 2 over 3G or Edge.

    Would you please comment to my posts regarding the “Offline Dialing” feature?

    Wow, and here I was thinking that some of the bad reviews might just be because its an incomplete product, or some people genuinely didn’t find the app helpful or worth the money. Obviously everyone who doesn’t like GV mobile must be either a non-user or a competitor. Makes perfect sense, Sean, considering who left a 1 star review on a competitors product. (Hint: It was you)

    I’m a type 1 user – and I’ll leave a partial review.

    First and foremost, I love it! Its the first public release so there are more features I would want, but it works well and lets me easily call numbers from GV!

    Keep up the good work.

    5th Type: Found GV Mobile in the ITMS on accident (knowledge of its imminent coming was highly anticipated). Heavy Gvoice user that appreciates adequate documentation. Found support link on this blog with very minimal help. Changing my GOOG password to some simple shit is_not a solution. I paid for this app instead of using Appulous b/c apprecite the effort. If you need help with documentation, just ask. However, I don’t contribute to anything that is not GPL’d. I hope it works to make calls soon. How does one remove a number from “Phone number to call from” list?

    Ok, everything works well now, but how about a description of each item in the settings for the app? Did I completely miss that piece of documentation?

    A version for Blackberry would be nice. I would pay for something like that.

    @coldbrew When I have some free time, I’ll document the app. ;)

    And now Gizmodo is plugging your competitor instead.

    @Jack Didn’t even notice – never go there. ;)

    I left a disappointed review on iTunes after enthusiastically purchasing GV Mobile. I was unable to place a call even after re-installing it, rebooting the iPhone (G3, v 3.0). It is interesting that people either absolutely love it (and I was one of them until trying to make a call) or extremely disappointed. I think the reason of the strong negative emotions is that we associate Sean’s application with Google that is not known for not functional software.

    Seems like remember me doesn’t work. Every time when i launch the app, i have to enter sign in information.

    Hi Sean,
    I have send in a request for an account about a month ago but haven’t heard anything, will you please let me know as to how I can get a GV Mobile account.

    Hello Sean;

    I have so much enjoyed using GV Mobile on my 3GS. I was able to download it before Apple took it off their website. I’ve been using it for several months. The SMS did not work (but that was not a problem as I really don’t text). However, today, October 13, 2009, I can no longer log into Google Voice. Although I tried re-entering my user id and password (and it is correct as I can log on from a computer) I get a dialogue box stating that either my user id or password is incorrect.

    Apple has apparently done something to negate your ap for those of us who were using it. Is there anything that can be done?

    Thanks very much again for a great program!
