ICQ – Official Client For Windows Phone

Once upon a time, the Internet was ruled by Orkut, mIRC and ICQ. Times have changed, but these services still live on, although they are nowhere near as popular as they once were. It’s still nice, however, to see when these services are up to something now, as is the case with the recent release of the official ICQ client for Windows Phone 7.

While many former users have moved on to other messaging programs, the Mango client looks good and can hold its own against most messenger apps on the platform. One of the best things about the app is the integration with the People hub, which makes it possible to chat with your Facebook, GTalk, and Mail.Ru friends as well. Some of the features you will find on the app are:

Works with the microblog
Multi-user conference
Collection of emoticons
Enable additional accounts
Manage your contacts

The app is free and can be found in the Marketplace. Head over the original thread to get started.

The app is called Pinsy, and its release debut is a strong proof of concept with plenty of room to grow. You may remember the developer behind this project, XDA...

Should You Get Wear? Wearer’s Practical Observations

Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
