    Mercury, a GTalk app for Windows 8
    My name is Jake Morrison(if you haven't seen me around the forums) and I co-develop applications with my friend Taylor Kimmett. Our main website is: http://jmtk.co
    If you weren't totally satisfied with the GTalk apps, here's the one we're making :).


    If you guys have used the "Gchat" app by lhchavez in the WP store, it uses the same backend(though we have modified it a bit to make it better ;D)

    Hope you guys like.

    Yep! Sends push notifications to you when the app is in the background.

    Also we made it so when you sign into Windows, you don't even have to start the app for it to begin receiving notifications, like Skype and other IM clients.

    We originally only released it in countries where English was the official language, as we do not have any translation support. Do you think it would be worthwhile to release this in non-English markets?

    Of course it would. Gmail, and therefore its chat services, are used everywhere in the world, not only where English is the official language.
    You could, and should, release your app everywhere, English is the language of the Internet and technologies after all.

    Just purchased this app, anxious to put it thru it's paces. I've been using IM+, which so far has been very reliable, but a bit busy in design.

    Will you be adding contact group support in the future?

    We're in mostly all countries. The way I phrased it to Taylor was "just check all the ones that don't want to bomb us" :P

    We primarily have focused on implementing native Google Talk functionality, so things like this would be lower priority. We go by XMPP standards: XMPP Extensions – The XMPP Standards Foundation
