Many people started receiving their Google Voice invites but a lack of proper app on mobile phone beats the purpose of Google Voice. Though Google Voice mobile site allows access from mobile phones but a neat stand alone app called GUAVA is in beta now. GUAVA meaning GoogleVoice Unauthorized Android Voice Application. Note it works only on Android phones.
GUAVA app benefits –
