Facebook Chat and Google Talk app

Just thought I would share this app I just found in the store, it's called ICQ, yeah, the same ICQ from years ago.

But now has been revamped, and let you sync contacts from multiple accounts, like Facebook and Google Talk, I've been using it for just a couple of hours, and I'm getting reliable notifications right on time from my facebook friends, heck, I can even attach pictures in the chat window.

I'm sharing this because the facebook chat from the beta app sucks, big time, also the integrated FB chat from WP, can't attach pictures and most of the time I don't get the messages on time.

Well that's it, happy week end to all!

Wow! That's good to know. I never would've thought about an ICQ app. I haven't used ICQ in years.
