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

    It works ok, but I wish it would keep me logged in and send me updates. Instead I have to keep opening it to make sure I'm still logged in.
