    Take reports from Twitter with a grain of salt, but the developer of a Google Voice app for the iPhone says <a href="http://www.appleinsider.com/articles/10/09/10/google_voice_enabled_apps_coming_back_to_app_store .html" target="_blank">his app will most likely be approved if he re-submits</a> it to the App Store following the recent changes in the app store guidelines.
