About a month ago, Google finally launched Google Voice for the iPhone. Today, Google launched a new version that also supports the iPad and iPod Touch devices. 

"While you can’t use your iPod or iPad as a phone, you can use it to initiate Google Voice calls with your phones," says product manager Marcus Foster. "We call this feature Click2Call. Simply click any ‘Call’ button in the Google Voice app on your iPod or iPad and then select which of your phones you want to ring. Google Voice will call your phone and then connect your call."

Google also made some additional improvements to the app. For example, it will automatically disable text forwarding when push notifications are enabled. Users can now send all callers to voicemail by turning on "Do Not Disturb" in settings. They added a dedicated Contacts button to the Dialer tab, and you no longer need to press the "ok" button when sending text messages. 

The new Google Voice app is in the App Store. It requires iOS 3.1 or higher, and is only available in the U.S. so far. 

In other Google/Voice news, the company also introduced personalized voice recognition for voice search, aimed at increasing accuracy of voice search queries.
