Orba App for Android: Now in Beta

Update – October 13, 2020

To simplify the beta testing process, we've published the Orba app for Android to the Google Play store. There's no longer any need to fill out the survey. You can simply access the app here.



Previous post:

The Orba app for Android is currently available for beta testing. If you’re interested in joining this private beta, we’d love to have you check it out. Follow this link to request access and become part of the early app experience! 

We will add all of the new registrations to the program every Monday afternoon.

For everyone else, we will have the Orba app published on the Google Play Store just shortly down the road.

Preset and song files is compatible between windows and android systems?

Hey Mvelez75, are you having issues downloading other apps as well? Or is it just the Orba app that's not downloading? We'll be happy to help get the app downloaded for you if you would like to open a support ticket. We'll be on the lookout for your email.

I can't download the app from the Google play store. It stops at 4% when downloading. How can I get the app?

@ Rodger & Maurice - Maybe you prefer to stay in your pink cloud where intentions and possibilities are actually enough (stop reading!). But if you are open to different opinions, take a look at this thread.

And if you do get out of that cloud for a while, take a look here.

No Arne, sorry, I referred to Rodger's contribution 2 months ago on this page. I wondered if he meant this page was for that, now that he was so clearly disparaging about my contributions :-)

Do you get that black screen on a Mac or on Windows?

Hmm. Do you define "Oops, i have a black screen!" as useful criticism and a serious discussion?

I paid for this product. Have waited too long for it. From the start, the software was bad. It only got worse. Happy talk from constructive hippies didn't work. So I keep nagging until Artiphon realizes that this is a very wrong way to market a product. Sorry if I bother you with that. You don't have to read this.   

There's still a lot of development going on, I've just received a small update that should stabilise some of the Bluetooth issues (it's an early release, not available for normal users in the play store) and Artiphon is working on updates that should bring back saving and exporting functions. But there's no timeline, at least not for the end users so we just have to wait for that. Haven't tested the Bluetooth update just yet, going to this weekend.
Ok if you cared about this product at all, you could have posted some useful criticism. For example, you could emphasize how much more you would enjoy your Orba if the android app would work. Instead you reply to every post with a page long rant that makes you sound like a whiny loser. All you've done is ensured no one takes this thread seriously.

@ Rodger - Thank you for your serious input. The point is that after almost a year (!) We still don't have any working software. It's no excuse to call what we do have beta and say there's such a long to-do list. It's great that you are satisfied with that. Not me.

The excuse is, it's not done yet. That's what Beta is for. Now take your troll BS somewhere else, this thread is supposed to be for serious discussion.

As I replied in the other thread, we are working on getting song loading back, volume control per part, haptic feedback off, Bluetooth issues and a very long list of new features after that. We are not announcing any schedules or promise any releases at specific dates.

Wonderful news! Five months later and the android app is still in beta ...

What could be the excuse? Too much Trump and corona? Not enough time?

@ Rodger P. - Do not worry! It is not broken, but a genius artistic concept and a conscious design. And Megafix is ​​coming to help you with even more improvements to the Orba. Faster, stronger and better at everything. After that, you not only get a black screen but also purple, scarlet and green. Megafix will become an early or late Christmas present. You will see Megafix as soon as Megafix arrives because then Megafix is ​​there!

I have a Samsung Galaxy J7. When I try to run the Orba app, I just get a black screen and nothing else happens.
