Today we began rolling out applications (apps for short) on orkut to everyone in India and will roll out apps to all orkuteers, in local languages, over the next few weeks.

Apps are integrated directly into your orkut experience. When you log into your profile, you will be able to add up to 25 apps to your orkut profile. Your friends will see all the apps you've added, be able to interact with them, and can add any apps they like to their own profiles.

Apps can relate to anything, from games and music to travel and books. If you're interested in learning more, we've put together a short video that explains what apps are and how to start using them.

Watch out for the "add apps" link in your profile over the coming weeks. We'll give you an update when apps are available to everyone worldwide.
