Sneak Preview: Orkut’s upcoming App Feature!

Orkut new applications downloadThe social networking scene is too overcrowded today. Even the next door Chunnu Munnu are proud owners of a self constructed social network and aim to make it to the billionaires list one day. Facebook, MySpace and Orkut have evolved so much over the past couple of years that they have left behind networking like Friendster, Hi5 etc. crying. Orkut is believed to be very popular with Indian users while Facebook is now picking up. With the growing trend of people getting hell bored with Orkut in a little time and with nothing much to do other than sitting back and waiting for scraps to arrive, Orkut took the step ahead to open itself to the world of developers.

Facebook possesses that fun element where you can do just more than staring at other’s private photos or adding girls you don’t know to your friends list. You could simply sit there all your life having fun interacting with a lot more people in a neat and simple way by using the tons of applications available with Facebook. All this time Orkut had simply laughed off at the mere idea of having an API. They were too proud of their ‘scraps’ getting popular. Orkut opened itself to developers a little time ago and is coming up with the applications developed by nerds from across the globe in a couple of weeks.

I took the extra pain of taking a peek into the sandbox and checking out how it might just look like. So here’s a neat sneak preview of the applications coming up at Orkut. Don’t expect a bomb or Facebook-like addiction. This might just piss people off.

This is how the application directory looks like. You can browse for applications and install them on your profile. Once you install an application it is displayed on your profile page along with the relevant data.I myself plan to get my hands dirty with an application of my own. I’m thinking of something like a game of Plot Four which you can play with the server, challenge a friend etc. and the scores are stored on a server and get displayed with your profile. Yeah that’s a fine idea but let’s see. I’m a lazy ass. Now that’s being honest.
