FTC Asks Apple, AT&T And Google About The Status Of Google Voice On The iPhone
Apple recently removed GV Mobile and Voice Central from the App Store and barred Google from bringing its own Google Voice App to the iPhone. However, the FTC is investigating the squabble.
The FTC has sent out memos to Apple, AT&T and Google about why Google Voice compatible Apps. The memos inquire about Apple and AT&T’s relationship in the App approval process and whether or not Google can bring Google Voice to the iPhone through alternate means such as making it a web enabled App accessible through Safari. AT&T however, has denied involvement with Apple’s process for approving Apps:
“AT&T does not manage or approve applications for the App Store. We have received the letter and will, of course, respond to it.”
The irony is AT&T has previously prevented Apple from approving Apps that consume massive amounts of data
FTC or FCC? One is really targeting AT&T and the other would be targeting both.
It would be the FTC
