Exactly an year after releasing the mobile version of Orkut website, Google is all set to introduce a downloadable Orkut App for mobile phones.
The Orkut Mobile App is a Java Application and can therefore work on BlackBerry, Nokia or any other J2ME-enabled mobile phones much like the existing Gmail app.
There are a couple of reasons why you may want to install the Orkut Mobile App instead of using the Orkut mobile site.
1. With the Orkut Mobile App, you can capture photos using the mobile phone’s camera and then post them to your Orkut Albums in a click. A similar feature is also available in Facebook for BlackBerry.
2. The Orkut Mobile App will enable you access all your Orkut scraps, friends list and photos even in offline mode.
3. The App will treat your Orkut Friends list and Mobile Phonebook as one so you will be able to call Orkut friends from the phone.
4. You can share your Orkut photo album with your mobile phone contacts via SMS messages. Your contacts can then view your Orkut photos even if they’re not a member of Orkut.
To download the Orkut Mobile App. you may simple visit m.google.com/orkut from the browser of your mobile phone though the site isn’t live yet. These details were available on the Orkut site momentarily but were soon removed for some unknown reason.
