UI Could Use Work, Needs Push Notifications for when App is not running. - UI Could Use Work, Needs Push Notifications for when App is not running. Seems not to ring when another GTalk app like Talkatone is running on the same account, seems only one GTalk app will ring the phone, but that is a Google restriction, apparently. Not sure if it will ring if it's the only GTalk app running - did not try that. Worked fine with SIP via BroadVoice for outgoing calls, but would not ring for incoming calls. :(
Great SIP client - I especially love the debug logging. The only thing keeping it from 5 stars is the lack of keyboard shortcuts for dialing/mute.
Close, but needs work - I was very excited to receive calls on mac through Google Voice without having to have mail open. I use my GVoice line as a business line. I was able to make a call out which is fantastic. I agree the UI needs work, but it’s a great start. Problem, however is that when I used a phone to try calling myself, it rang… I answered, but the phone I was calling on kept ringing and eventually went to voice mail. Yate Client confirmed I answered, and started the call clock, but the call was never connected. I will remain hopeful for an update/fix.
great start but needs some more work - I agree with other reviews that the user-interface needs a bit of work. It would be great if we could type in the phone number via the keyboard rather than having to point and click. Also, after several tests, I also had the problem that the client never rang when people phoned my Google number. If the app would ring when people phoned me, I'd give it four stars. If the user interface was also prettier (like Growl Voice's user-interface), I'd give it 5 stars. It would also be cool if it supported SMSes on our Google phone numbers the way that Growl Voice supports SMS. Phoning out worked perfectly for me though! I loved being able to make a call on my Google number without having to have GMail open. :-)
Great start but needs a lot of work - It's a great start with being able to Make and Receive calls via a desktop application, however it has a long way to go before it's really use worthy for those folks who use Google Voice as their primary work line (like me). If making it a paid app means increasing the time the team has to work on it and make it really regular use worthy, then I would glady buy it! The UI needs an overhaul, call handling needs major improvements, preferences could use some work with things like allowing to set the ring tone, and input/output settings, to name a couple.
