OctroTalk: Gtalk Client Already Cuts Price in Half

October 31, 2011 6 Comments

OctroTalk is a Google Talk client that recently hit the Windows Phone marketplace at a price of $4.99. I said that the price would probbaly fall shortly since $4.99 is a bit much for a standalone Gtalk client, eventhough it seems as though it may be a very good one. One of our readers (Mukatd) notified us that the price is now half off at $2.49. Even though that was still pretty fast and the price sure is alot more reasonable. I still see the price dropping further in the incoming weeks.

You can always try the app for free before you buy

App Info:
Octrotalk version 1.0 is a Google Talk client for Windows Phone 7, which allows you to stay logged in to the Google Talk service, and receive incoming messages via push (in case app is not running in the foreground).

OctroTalk supports both tile and push notifications.

    It’s ugly as hell.

      We would love to hear your comments (as to what makes it ugly).

        it’s not really that ugly. But it is somewhat ugly.
        What makes it ugly for me are those white lines between contacts, white background in chat window..
        That’s pretty much it.

          version 1.0.3 fixes the background problem with the chat window. Now the chat window is themed according to your device.

    I found this to be the most reliable one. The only issue is the error message it gives when there is a notification and the app crashes. Doesn’t do it often but enough to be annoying.

      We released version 1.0.1 which fixes a lot of the bugs with the initial version. If you still have crashes, this version also allows you to send the crash log back to us so that we can fix it

      We also released a free version of our software (with ads though) at:
