There's got to be an easier way than copying and pasting phone numbers from my Quicksilver / Address Book.app look-up into the Google Voice web page.

Does anyone have any tips on how to make this easier?

I haven't tested this, but was looking for the same answer and saw this script, which is an interesting, direct approach: hints.macworld.com/article.php?story=20090805155644746 –  Seth Battis Aug 14 '12 at 18:30

There was an app called Vocito (http://googlemac.blogspot.com/2008/11/vocito-voe-kee-toe.html), but it hasn't been updated since GrandCentral became GV. The closest I've come to what you want is the Firefox Google Voice Add-on: http://thatsmith.com/2009/03/google-voice-add-on-for-firefox

Well, google voice will import csv files, so if you can export them from your address book, you can import them.

Most things export csv (not everything, I had to screen scrape my address book for my sidekick (that is, select from the webpage, copy, paste into a spreadsheet, save as a csv, import that, and clean the results))

I'm still looking for my "ideal" Quicksilver solution. Until I find/write that i'm using GV Connect which is a desktop widget that ties into your Address Book. It's small and works well, I'm just not a big fan of desktop widgets in general.

You can download it from here:
