I recently received an invite from the staff of Orgoo, and so far I’ve found it quite amazing. What is unique about Orgoo compared to all of the other ‘All In One’ services, is simply that they do it right. The others have a long term goal, while Orgoo is already here with most IM services, and Email services. So the second you log in to Orgoo, you will have access to all of this.
A Quick Overview
- All Common IM and Email Services Supported
- Incredibly Easy To Use Interface
- Pop Up Notifications

When you first log in to Orgoo, your primary tab is the All Mail tab. This is where all of your new Email messages will appear, from all of your Email accounts. The next tab is the video chat tab. You can create a room like on Yahoo! Live, and stream yourself to anyone you would like. You can have private rooms, or you can choose to stream to the public. Most clicks you make, you will see things opening in new tabs, unless you specify in the settings wether or not to open certain things in a new window such as IM.
What You Get!
- Free Orgoo Email Address (firstname.lastname@example.org)
- 50 Free SMS Messages (Upgrade Available)
- Access To As Many Email And IM Accounts As You Want
Email – Orgoo has Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo! Mail, .Mac, and an option to use your own POP or IMAP service that requires custom settings and setup. So you can use any web mail service with Orgoo. You can add as many services as you want at any time. So if you have 5 email addresses, you can register them all with Orgoo, and receive on the fly Email just like you would through your favorite Email client.
Instant Messaging (IM) – Instant Messaging with Orgoo is easier than with most multiple account services. The easiest way to do IM is to go to the settings page, and choose to open the buddy list and IM windows in a new window so its just as if you were to use Adium. The buddy list contains all of your contacts from all services you register with it such as AIM, MSN, and Yahoo! Messenger.
SMS – Yes you heard me, Orgoo supports SMS. You get 50 free SMS messages per month. You can upgrade to an unlimited account to send as many as you would like. SMS messages are provided by Joopz, an online text messaging starup.
Conclusion – This has been a small review of Orgoo. I’m just getting used to it, and there are many things coming for Orgoo in the near future that will make the service very hard to resist. Its hard already not to sign off of iChat and MSN Messenger just to use Orgoo with all of your accounts. I’m sure many will use this service, and if you need an invite, let me know! I have a bunch left, but they should go quick! Did i mention that you get your own @orgoo.com Email address?
