  1. I think it is great that G Whizz allows you to use the Google Apps log in but I noticed it does not connect for G Talk inside G Whizz??? Any plans to allow or set that up?

  2. This is actually planned for our next release (We've enabled both Talk and Tasks for Google Apps). Thanks for the feedback! Please leave a review in the App Store if you're enjoying the app!

  5. Hi, Dustin! When you view any link in the pop-up browser, just click on the new button in the upper-right-hand corner next to the "Done" button. That is the "Actions" button. You will see a button there for Instapaper. Hope this helps!

  9. I am considering buying this app. I actually want to use the GV Mobile app, but Apple has squashed the ability to install that on the iPhone.
    Will the G-Whizz app allow me to access Google Voice?
    And by doing that, allow me to place calls with my iPhone and show my GV# to the call recipient

  10. @Ron: Yes, voice works like a charm on iPhone! For iPad or iPod Touch just be sure to choose the desktop version. Your outgoing calls will be placed through Google Voice, so other parties will see your Google Voice number when you call them. And Google Voice is just the tip of the iceberg for this app. Hope you enjoy it!

  11. Hi,
    I think that G-Whizz! Is a great, useful app, but I can't see the standard search button on my iPhone, like on the screenshots. I've tried going through more and edit, but I can't see it anywhere. I've also tried re-installing the app. Can you help? Did you remove the option?

    ReplyDelete
  12. @Ryan: This is a great question. We've actually had to change the Search tab and replace it with the iGoogle tab since there were some bugs (on Google's side) with Search (the keyboard was popping up and down with every keystroke). It works with search on iGoogle, so we used that instead. Thanks for your interest! We should update the screenshot!

  13. Does this app make googlevoice work like Skype? Will it turn my iPad into a free phone with other gmail users? And will it work internationally?

    ReplyDelete
  14. @kathryn: The app uses Google's Voice mobile web app to place calls, so on iPhone you can dial like normal and your phone will be called and then the call will be connected. It works pretty well! It doesn't support calling via Google Talk, but you can call other "real" phone numbers with it.

  15. Hello
    I really enjoy the app on my iPad. Regrouping everything google in one place is so sweet. Only problem, every time I try to enter a new feed the app crash. Do you plan to fix this soon or do I buy a new feed app?
    Keep on the good work

  16. @Zab: Thanks for using G-Whizz! Are you using the mobile or desktop version of Reader from within G-Whizz!? We'd like to isolate the issue. Our next release has a ton of improvements, especially in the area of stability. It's currently awaiting approval by Apple. We've got our fingers crossed for a quick approval!

  17. Hello Ricky
    It is the mobile version. Everytime I click on the two small arrows in the right corner and select "add subsciption" the app quit. I tried in the desktop version and it worked just fine. Thank you for the tip. Now I can use your feed properly.
    I can't wait to explore the ton of improvements.
    Thanks for the fast reply.

  18. @Zab: Sounds good. I actually just tried the "Add subscription" button on our new builds and it works fine, so it sounds like you'll have the option back when the new build is approved by Apple. Please consider leaving a review in the App Store if you have a minute.

  19. I Would Appreciate It If You Make This App Free For Everyone. If You Don't Have The Money To Afford That Then But Advertising In The App It's Self.

  20. @GMan: Thanks for your comments. We have some plans in this area, not ready to announce yet. Stay tuned! Also please consider using the Google Group for future comments (see post above). Thanks!

  21. I still cannot get on this GWhizz app. It keeps telling me my email address is invalid. I went into the settings and disabled as I am an indiv. user but still won't let me on. Soooooooooo frustrating.

  22. I am having the same problem as Amy ( above ) worked for the 1st day or two now I am locked out - very frustrating - Is there a fix for this please ??? I see no one has been here for a while

    ReplyDelete
  23. Dominic: it shouldn't lock you out. The issue Amy was having had to do with entering the email address incorrectly in settings if using a Google Apps adress. Make sure you enter the whole thing: name@address.com, not just "name."

    Also, if you read the post above these comments, the reason no one has been here in a while is because support has been moved to a Google Group. Thanks!

  24. I'm having trouble logging into Google Talk with this app. I click "sign in" and it momentarily signs me in, then right back out before the buddy list even loads? Please help, this feature is why I purchased the app.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I don't have Google Apps activated and I am still getting the "invalid email address" error. Eventually the "OK" button stops working.

  26. This is a great app. I've had this for a while and had no problems until one day Google Talk Just stopped showing up. I liked it because if my friends sent me a link to something or I had to check a facebook thing I could without going offline. Where can I find Talk again? I've used other Talk apps but if I want to do anything else i have to leave the app.
    Oh and btw my name is jessi I messed up typing it on my iPhone(:

  27. GREAT APP> Everything google app works better and has more settings. Only thing I cannot figure is that voice has a 13 message count on it adn only one message. How do I clear down to real count
