Google Voice Callback v0.8 is out!

Happy new year! Google Voice Callback v0.8 brings in some new things:

  • (Android 2.0+ only) Login no longer requires entering password; can use the existing authentications on the phone.
  • The progress dialog when calling back is now dismissed before a new one is up. Overlapping dialogs should now be gone on some devices (some Android 1.6 and others).
  • Number checking for pattern rules with wildcard "*" are now checked after characters "-() " are removed to allow better matching.
  • Quiet Hours settings page should now respect the user's preference for 12/24-hour format.
  • Some better error / information messages.

The big change, of course, is the passwordless login. If you have a Android 2.0+ device (that is, Eclair, Froyo, or Gingerbread), it is highly recommended that you change to the new passwordless login if possible. It is much more secure! This does not work for Android 1.5 and 1.6 users, however, because the authentication API does not exist for Android version below 2.0.

the new passwordless login only works for the primary gmail account. trying to use a 2ndary account causes errors during the authentication process. Otherwise great app!

@Anon: what is the error message? Is your second account a Google App account? There are some known problems with Google App account.
