Voogle 3.0 brings Google Voice back to webOS... again

Remember last year when Connor LaCombe released the very popular Voogle app to the webOS App Catalog? Since then, Connor had actually decided to stop developing the app to work on other projects he's got under his belt, and the Voogle app could no longer be found in the app catalog. Other apps, like Gvoice by Eric Blade, have since been released to fill the void left behind by Voogle, but there will always be a place in our hearts for the first Google Voice app to grace our phone screens.

The world can rejoice once more, though. WebOS World (the same guys who build Villo) has released a new version of Voogle (appropriately titled Voogle 3.0) to the webOS app catalog; bringing support for new devices like the Pre3 and the notifications that were missing in previous versions of the app. Where Connor left off, WebOS World has picked up (at a cheaper price of $0.99, too), and so far they're doing a fine job. With the app you'll be able to make phone calls, send text messages and get visual voicemail from your Google Voice service with any internet connection. To put it simply, Voogle 3.0 works just as well as previous versions of the app, with a few needed updates.

We're told that more updates are planned for the future, and that they don't expect to remove the app from the catalog again any time soon either. You can get Voogle 3.0 from the webOS app catalog right now for $0.99. Let me just say this on behalf of the entire webOS community, thank you so frickin much for bringing this app back.
