Google launches Orkut for iPhone


Google has officially launched its Orkut app for iPhone, letting users of Brazil and India's favorite social network access the service on-the-go.

The official Orkut app for iOS connects you to your friends and family. Now you can send scraps, see your friends updates, upload photos and browse your friends albums anywhere you go. Never miss a conversation again because you are not in front of your computer: get the free Orkut app and stay connected.

  • Update your status
  • Check your scraps and messages
  • Reply to your friends birthdays
  • Check your friends updates
  • Browse your friends profiles, scraps and photos
  • Take new photos and upload them directly to your Orkut albums
  • Share your life anywhere, anytime with the people you care about

Although Orkut isn't as popular as Facebook in most parts of the world, but the Google-owned social network that's not Google+ has gained popularity in Brazil and India, where roughly 80 percent of its active user base resides.

Orkut is available not in the App Store and is compatible with the iPhone and iPod touch.

Google launches Orkut for iPhone


I don't know how can you say people in Brazil don't use orkut anymore , it's not true , I'm Brazilian and I have thousands of people on my orkut and they used it every day . We do use orkut everyday and we would like google to open its game to people who have iPad and iPhone to be eable to play on it .

I didn't think anyone used this anymore. I thought Google shut it down long before Google+ came out. Wow, talk about resurrecting the dead.

Wow, incredible blog format! How lengthy have you ever been blogging for? you make blogging glance easy. The whole look of your site is magnificent, let alone the content!
