Just when we though Orkut is pretty much dead, Google decided to release a dedicated mobile app for accessing the social network. The Java ME-based client will work on most feature phones, allowing users to keep up with their Orkut buddies while on the go.
Using the Orkut mobile app, users can:
- Perform “basic Orkut operations” such as write/read scraps, update status, search for users, view/accept/deny friend requests, etc.
- Take a photo on their phone and upload it right to their Orkut album.
- Share photos with Orkut friends or SMS them to phone contacts not yet on Orkut.
- Call or SMS Orkut friends or phone contacts without leaving the app.
- View scraps, updates from friends, and photo albums in offline mode.
To put it in other words, Orkut mobile app will certainly help any remaining fans of the Google-owned social network stay in touch with their “Orkut activities.” To download the app, visit m.google.com/orkut on your phone and follow instructions provided on the screen…
