Do you want to take over your world? Thought so.

Now you can with Orbiifi!

On February 27, just after the announcement of the iPad, three odd fellows got together and had a wee think. What kind of application could we make for this revolutionary new product that would really help people and give them a sense of style and power to boot? The result, after just under a month of hardcore thinking, coding, and consumption of tea, is Orbiifi. The first version of Orbiifi will give you an idea of where we want to take the product. If we managed to get all this done in 30 days, imagine what well churn out in the next 30?

Have fun,

Ben, Jai, and Gelb



Orbiifi is a constantly evolving environment that helps you simplify your online life all in one application. View your friends tweets and facebook status updates appear on the dynamic 3D globe and keep track of RSS feeds as they pop up across the world. Best of all, this allows you to multitask between the three without changing applications.

With two views (globe and columned) you can take over your world with one glance. The globe view offers the ability to view updates from across the world (content is stacked by time zone so that none of your info is hidden) whilst the detailed view offers a chance to track several specific trends from twitter, facebook and RSS which you can customise. Want to switch views? Simply swish to the side!

All future updates to Orbiifi will be passed on to you free of charge. We dont believe it should be anymore complicated than that!
