    Can receive calls and send/receive text messages from google voice with my Lumia Icon. Does what I need. We'll see what happens after longer usage.

    Can't delete more than one conversation at a time. Not a lot of options. Won't enable notifications properly.

    Metrotalk was better ... :( Update: Uses GVMax for push notifications and that service is now shut down. That minimizes the value of the app. Everything else still works, so it's better than nothing I suppose ...

    Good app

    The app used gvmax but when you go to the site it states that its down for good because it was hacked. The app is based on gvmax to send SMS notifications. Now what?
