Nice widget that gives you easy access to Google Voice. I use the widget to quickly access my OS X Address Book app numbers to dial through GV. Also works well to change your GV settings without having to go to the GV web page. VERY responsive developer. I e-mailed him yesterday about a problem with the widget showing dup entries from Google Contacts and the OS X Address Book, and he responded with a fix the same afternoon. A+

Widget claims no Growl installed with Growl 1.3.3 -- Growl support is broken currently...

Since upgrading to Growl 1.3 via the Mac App Store, this widget no longer recognizes Growl as being installed (presumably since the Growl Helper App no longer exists). Are there any plans to get this widget updated to work with the new Growl?

This is awesome! I just donated to the developer to show how much I appreciate the hard work put into this. I have to ask if it was also possible to accept calls using this widget? Just wondering. thanks. zorbee

perfect! you nailed it. only thing i'd like is the same thing that person above mentioned - empty the comment field upon submit - OR - a little "clear info" button that just empties phone and text if desired (i often text myself, so leaving phone in place is perfect for me) fast, simple, uncluttered, works like a charm...

Works GREAT! Easiest way to set Google Voice... Google should BUY this from you and offer it! Only "wish" is to somehow have an additional GV Connect Widget for my 2nd GV number... Any suggestions? Thanks for this great widget... It should be on MacWorld's GEM list! 2.6Ghz MacBook Pro 17" OS X 10.6

I was pleasantly surprised by the full contacts (Address Book or Google) integration for SMS and voice. This is the best frontend for Google Voice (or even Grandcentral) that I've ever seen.

I love this widget. It's so much easier than the website and allows you to pull from your computer's addressbook. only had a couple issues that signing out & back in didn't solve, but I use it multiple times a day.

I find this extremely useful for sending SMS messages through Google Voice. I don't use text on my cell phone, but my kids do. This allows me to send quick messages for free. I think the author did a great job with the look and feel of the widget too! It's attractive, well designed and the author seems very responsive. Earlier versions seemed to freeze from time to time, but this has much improved. I'm giving him five stars!

Since downloading v1.8, I'm unable to login and get repeated login errors (in the form of a red stripe at the bottom of the widget). Is this a known bug?

Does what it says it does, seems to work well with no delay compared to using the full GV web site. A suggestion: In the SMS view there is no way for me to just clear both the recipient field and main text body field. I would like to leave the widget blank for the next message I want to send, rather than having to delete everything every time I want to send out a new SMS. Other than that it looks and works great. Just needs some interface improvements.
