Just purchased it.
I am liking it. I had a issue where the other party could not hear me. I enabled the workaround in Advanced Settings/Troubleshooting (Audio Routing Hack) and that did help. It's actually very clear over EDGE, but also delayed. I am not sure if there is any hope for those of us without 3G/4G. Maybe bandwidth profiles? More robust sip clients often offer a range of codecs. But I think google voice only supports certain codecs. Of-course, it's sounds amazing over wifi, and the delay is hardly noticeable. The popup asking if I want to use Groove IP or Dialer is working fine (when using native dialer). I can tell it still needs some work but it's shaping up very nicely. Well worth the asking price.
You will be getting 5 stars from me, because I can see the issue's will be resolved. I am very happy to cutout the middle man (google voice - sipgate - GV callback = just google voice). A one app solution.
Edit: I wrote a very simple guide here.

Bug: Enabling Audio Routing Hack, makes the speaker phone not work on Optimus V (maybe other phones too?)

Purchased this app. Haven't been able to play with it much yet. But love the concept and the options. For dialing out I really like the options that you can integrate it with the phone's dialer OR keep it completely separate.
I plan to use it as a backup if I'm ever without cell coverage but have access to wifi. It is the perfect compliment to my newly integrated Sprint number with google voice.
I'll give more feedback when I can't put it through it's paces.
If your speaker phone button works properly without Audio Routing Hack then I'd leave Audio Routing Hack disabled.
Hope that clears things up!

Hey...I purchased the app and I really like the concept. I'm having some troubles though. Whenever I call out, the call is always being routed to my speakerphone rather than to the earpiece. I've tried to audio routing hacks in the advanced settings and none of them seem to work. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Thanks for looking into it. I was afraid that this was a common issue for the Intercept. I tried to work around it by using a bluetooth headset. I was able to hear the person, but they could barely hear me...they could only hear me if I was screaming into the headset. Is there some reason to correct that? Also, the "bluetooth" icon on the calling screen was greyed out, but bluetooth was operating, so I'm not sure it is a problem or not...just letting you know. Thanks.

Here is my plan.... I am going to be doing a bit of overseas travel. I am looking for a way to make calls back to tue US via VoIP via my cell phone (over Wi fi). I dont care if I need to add another GV number, and actually think that may be the way to go. I could then forward my original GV number to my second GV number.
Any input would be appreciated! Sometimes I feel pretty stupid when it comes to this VoIP stuff.
Oh and Bluetooth would be GREAT!!
Version 1.0.12 is up on the market.
- Calls that hang at signalling will auto fail in a few seconds
- “Always use GrooVe IP” option now works
- Exit menu is now working
- Hang up tone is no longer played twice
- Added a Ring tone configuration
- Clean up some screen transitions
- Fix an issue where sometimes the incoming call screen didn't show up
- Added a troubleshooting section to the help
- GrooVe IP contact list will now show custom phone type labels for contacts instead of "Unknown"

As Takenover83 mentioned...New update is up!
- Fix DTMF digits not detected when in a call
- Add a configuration change Google Chat status
- Proximity sensor support to turn off screen when held to face
- Add new settings in troubleshooting to fix call quality on some phones (If you have stuttering/choppy voice try the new Audio Processing settings)
- Integrate with native call log
- Register as a dialer, clicking on a phone number will now list GrooVe IP as a dialer option
If you were having the choppy voice issue then try the new Audio Processing settings. If you had choppy voice incoming then enable Incoming Audio Processing. If you had choppy voice outgoing then enable Outgoing Audio Processing. For the LG Optimus, make sure that Audio Routing Hack is OFF before enabling those two settings (may need to restart the phone if you had the routing hack on)

I do plan on making more enhancements to it. For phones that need the screen on, just putting up a lock screen instead of turning off the screen.
