Google Voice Callback v0.7 is out!

This one has been long in coming; I was occupied with some real life tasks (good luck to me on my graduate school applications, everyone!) Anyways, v0.7 is out:

  • turn off callback completely for certain weekdays and hours (see Quiet Hour in setting)
  • can now call your own GV number
  • bug fixes

The major change is the "Quiet Hour" feature, which is among the number one asked: turn off callback completely for certain time (such as any time other than Monday-Friday, 7am-8pm).

(Those of you who like to play around with your phone probably already implemented this feature on your own with Tasker/Locale. This feature is simply here since perhaps some of you don't want to pay for an extra app to do something as simple as this. I still strongly encourage you to use Tasker/Locale to turn callback on/off based on more complex situations. More features on the plugin is forthcoming, including the ability to change the callback number with the plugin. Stay tuned!)

Happy "callbacking" and happy holidays!

Hi, i realy love your app, but i still have a small problem
i use very often the transfer option to redirect all my call at home
i have created a contact with the information *21*555-555-1212#
and when i use this it transfer all my call to this number, but it does not work i have to turn off callback to be able to do it

and btw when i do #21# to cancel the redirection it work

Hi XinLu,
Greap app. I was wondering if you would consider tweaking this for skype which would intercept an outgoing call and dial it thru Skype instead of phone's native dialer? Plz let me know.

@None of your business: try the pattern "**21**555*555*1212#" instead. In brief, "*" is a specially character, so you should put "**" instead of just one "*" to match a "*" character, and ther other "*" I added is to make sure that "555-555-1212" is matched just like "5555551212" (no dashes).

@Bill: I don't think so. Not until Skype opens up some API for their app.
