Orkut Blog Reads as follows ::

Back in November, Orkut announced that orkut was open to developers. Developers have been building exciting new social applications over the last few months that will make the orkut experience even better. This is why we’re excited to announce that apps will be available to a subset of orkut users starting in a couple weeks, and to all orkut users several weeks after that.

In the meantime, here on the orkut blog, we will be inviting guest posts from developers as a sneak peak into some of the apps developers have built, so stay tuned!

If you’re a developer and want to have your app available to orkuteers
the last week of February, you can find out more on how to submit your app here. If you need more info on how to build an app, check out http://code.google.com/apis/orkut/.

The latest versions of APIs are available, and developers can build and test their apps at sandbox.orkut.com. We are going to be accepting applications into the directory manually in order to ensure apps are high quality. To get the latest news on the orkut sandbox, check out the new orkut developer blog.

Have an orkut app that you would like featured here? After you’ve submitted your app to us , send us an email (orkut-app-submissions@google.com) with a description (250 words or less), screenshots, and/or a video walkthrough.
