Simple and just ok

Appreciate the app for free access to Google Voice. Interface is extremely simple and could use more features such as: 1) Open to specific folder 2) Ability to change colors. 3) Ability to pin folders to start menu. 4) Honest disclosure of limitations in app description and what isn't available in the free version. Otherwise it is useful to access voicemail and text from desktop. Thanks

Poor programming at its worst

I opened the application and logged in. That part went fine, but everything after that was a mess. I was confronted with an unlabeled drop-down box that didn't have any items in it, a play button that generates two errors (object reference not set to instance of object and bad gateway), a disabled send button and message box with a plea for me to upgrade above it. I'd love to tell you how the program works, but can't because of bad programming (I'm a programmer, I know it when I see it).

Completely useless if you have headphones and a mi

It doesn't even have the option of allowing me to pick what outputs I want, thus I hear nothing out of my head phones when making a call. There is one other that utilizes google voice, but it costs 1.99. Sorry, till Talkatone ports their app from Apple over to Microsoft, I guess expecting any worthwhile google voice app is just not going to happen. This app's been around quite some time now, and if they haven't done anything to make it useful, they're probably not going too.

Crashes every time.

Upon any attempt to log in, the app crashes back to the Start screen. I really only wanted to check my voicemail and text messages. If this app worked, I would consider purchasing it.

Open Google voice nor Gmail in browser then works

Everything works just fine but to make phone calls you need to have the browser open in the Gmail or Google Voice web page, then within the Free Talk App you can start making calls. I think this happens because when you open the Gmail webpage the browser automatically opens the Google Voice plugin. We must find a way to open the Google voice plugin in the background, then It won't be necessary to have a browser open...

Works Well

Text works well. Easy to track conversations and its easier to see other folders than in the official app. Listening to or reading voicemails worked well with no problems. Those complaining that the call feature didn't work are wrong or stupid or n00bs. You put in the number you want to call and select the phone to call you at (based on phones you've previously setup with Google Voice). Suggested Improvements: $3 is pricey for push notifications. Change Free Text to just Text. Sync contacts.

Works great!

I had to follow the manual steps for push notifications to work but they work great now! Would be nice if: *There was a character count & message count while typing *There was a shortcut to send a message (hit Ctrl+Enter, Alt+Enter, etc)-- or, make Enter send a message and Ctrl+Enter or Alt+Enter add a newline.

It would be helpful if u could talk

You aren't able to use the click to talk feature, it never connects and dials. Using the GVOICE has at least working functionality. If you could flick to select the name, it then brings up the lower panels and gives you options to autodial this number, that would be useful

Good app

Refresh and delete button overlap when app is snapped. Otherwise app works well enough. Lots of appreciation for this free app considering how Google treats windows/and winphone users like we don't matter. Notifications seem delayed at times though.

App runs well. Could use some improvements.

I should be able choose a contact from the People app to send a text to or call, and I should be able to initiate an sms or call directly from the People app.
