GrooveIP, difference between Lite and Paid version

Hello folks,

For 2 months now, I have been using Google Voice as my home phone successfully. I would like to bring it to my mobile phone as well. I looked into it in the past but I was told that it uses your mobile minutes to place the call, which doesn't seem to hold up from their website.

They have 2 versions, Lite and Paid. I wonder what the difference is? The information only notes that the lite version uses 1.2mb/minute, so does that mean, its only the codec used in the app? What else?

Many thanks for comments.

Bonus question - Would you like to recommend any other app than GrooveIP to use Google Voice on my phone?
From Playstore:

Upgrade to the full version of GrooVe IP (https://market.android.com/details?id=com.gvoip) to remove ads and enable features:
- Calls over a mobile data connection not just WiFi
- Native dialer integration
- Proximity sensor support
- Change sign in status or sign in invisible

Hmm interesting. I wonder why I don't see this on the same page..
