10+ Chrome extensions and Web apps for new users

It might only be a couple of years old and its extension interface might not be quite as powerful as Firefox's, but in terms of developers, big-name publishers, and sheer numbers, Chrome already has a very healthy ecosystem of add-ons. When you factor in Chrome's exclusive selection of Web apps, it's even possible to say that Chrome has a wider variety of extensions -- or at least until Mozilla...

Google purchases SayNow to bolster Voice service

Over on its website, SayNow says it's "reinventing the phone call." With Google doing its best to reinvent the phone carrier, the two certainly seem like a good match -- which is probably why Google decided to purchase the startup. SayNow made a name for itself by offering to connect music fans with their idols, including artists like 50 Cent, Trisha Yearwood, and the Jonas Brothers -- who have...

Google Voice will let you port your current phone number for $20 -- soon

However, you can use it on an iPad or iPod touch to initiate a call on your...

Send hilarious, personalized Santa messages with Google Voice

Ho ho ho! I remember, when I was 8, Santa called my father's mobile phone. He had a message for me, and it blew my mind. A few years later, my dad told me it was his best friend, and he had bought a new SIM card just so I couldn't trace the number! Ah, the lengths adults go to preserve the magic of Santa Claus. Today, things just got a whole lot easier. If you want to create a personalized...

Google now offers call recording in Gmail

Gmail's very useful voice calling service is even more useful now, with the addition of call recording.

The official Google Voice application for the iPhone has finally arrived in the iTunes App Store.

The app has all the features you'd expect, including...

Unofficial Google Voice iPhone app GV Mobile+ is back on the App Store

Google Voice apps have a rocky history on Apple's iPhone. Apple banned the first official Google Voice app, and unofficial ones ended up on alternative app stores like Cydia. Well, one of those unofficial apps, GV Mobile+, made it back onto Apple's App Store last week along with GV Connect. GV Mobile+ isn't perfect, but it's a better Google Voice app than the iPhone had before (which is to say,...
