Ding-ding-ding-ding! We have a winner!

We have the name of that lucky developer that will travel to London for free to attend NOKIA World Conference on the 26-27 of October.... And it's GChat!

It is a beautiful, fast, privacy-conscious client to use your favorite IM messaging service.

Supports cool features such as: - Push notifications for messages - Pinning any of your contacts as a secondary tile, with independent unread message count. - Off-the-record conversations, with special and delicate handling.


Thank you to all the participants, jury, organizers and audience who made this possible!

We really appreciate your support and contribution!

This has been our 5th stop in México during the last summer and it's been a complete success! Now Monterrey is waiting for us.
