Voice Choice 2.0 now includes SMS(texting!) and a much improved user interface.
This has everything from our free Voice Choice app, with many improvements and extra features requested by users - for those upgrading from free version, see **notice** below(!)
So what can Voice Choice do for you?
Well, you love using Google Voice, but you have certain numbers you want to always call and text with your cell phone number. No problem, save those numbers to your Direct Call List, and all other calls and texts will be made via Google Voice. Or, make your Voice Choice List a "Google Voice List" and put in numbers which will use Google Voice; then all others will be called directly. (You'll need to select the "Use Google Voice for all calls" option within Google Voice for Voice Choice to work.)
So call those in-network cell phones with your cell line and save on minutes. Or call only your business clients with your Google Voice number. And have you ever noticed Google Voice can't reliably send dial tones to those automated menus? Voice Choice has got you covered(see Quick Dial feature below)
Most important of all, get rid of that extra dialog before each call!!
