Show HN: My first Windows 8 app, GabberWocky (a gtalk client)

I've been working on this for a few months since I got my Surface RT, and realized there wasn't a solid gtalk/gchat app. It's a C#/XAML app, and I ended up writing my own XMPP stack on-top of raw sockets since there wasn't a good open source one available (that would run in RT). I'll open source my XMPP library on GitHub shortly once I've cleaned it up a bit.

Check it out!

Thanks! I had been waiting for a decent GTalk client on my Win8 PC. Will download it today once I reach home. Do you have support for video chats?

Right now it just supports 1:1 text chats. My plan is to do group chat next, then add support for Video/Voice.

It looks promising. Is the password stored locally? And if not will you be supporting OAuth?

The password isn't stored locally, I use oauth 2.0 (and also support folks with 2-factor auth enabled!)

Great job, love the look of it!


oh, and feedback is greatly appreciated :)
