Description

This is the free version of Gchat. It's not limited or anything because we love you. However, Gchat+ supports the app's development and servers, and signs you in for 24hrs after app launch, instead of 2hrs. A beautiful, fast, privacy-conscious client for the Google Talk™ instant messaging service. Gchat supports cool features such as: - Modern design that integrates with the rest of Windows Phone - Receive IMs even if the app isn't running with push notifications - Pin your friends to start and receive tile notifications for each one - Completely encrypted conversations and support for Google Talk's "off the record" conversations - New in 1.6: New icon, invisible status, bug fixes, and 24hrs logout timer for Gchat+ users More info at http://gchatapp.com Created by Luis Héctor Chávez (http://lhchavez.com) & Juliana Peña (http://julianapena.com) Grab the source code for the client at https://github.com/lhchavez/gtalkchat and for the server at https://github.com/lhchavez/gtalkjsonproxy Released under the terms of the CC BY-NC-SA license.

Performs inconsistently. Does not appear to sync with multiple Gmail accounts (personal and work related). Frustrating.

Wish it would have a way around the lock screen. Would have a higher review if I didnt always have to unlock it or change my lock timer just to have a chat

Takes way to long to load. Great app however the format on the nook is so much better. And why won't it let me send messages? Great idea but could be improved.

Looks really nice but completely unusable. Don't receive any messages when the app isn't in the foreground or when the phone is locked and the messages which were missed never appear. I want to use it, when its actively in use its great but missing messages in a messaging app is no good

Don't see an easy way to do group chats. Other than that works great.

Not synced with actual Google Chat. Does not receive messages let alone alert when they come in -- doesn't see history of incoming/outbound messages on computer or other device. Doesn't do anything but show you your contacts and pretend they are all offline even when you can see they aren't when on a computer, devices side by side.
