Google Skirts iPhone Voice App Rejection with New Web App

As you may recall, last summer Apple rejected Google's iPhone application submission for their Voice product. They did the same with the Google Latitude app, but Google got around that with a web app.

Now, Google Voice is getting the same treatment with a brand spankin' new web app. The app was developed for HTML5 compatible devices - which includes the iPhone as well as Palm's platform.

The calls are still placed through the iPhone's native dialer, but a local Google number is called first. This allows Google to keep the costs low. Google Voice is free with the exception of International calls which they offer at a super low price.
