This app used to work fine. Wish it did its job then I’d use it all the time! Such a shame because it’s so convenient and super easy to use but nothing uploads.
Nothing but problems. 1/5
By AIM user2
Orbit has caused problems on my laptop; plus it is difficult to uninstall. Beware!
Pathetic excuse for software 1/5
Why bother even putting this out? Slooooow and useless. Next step for me is take it off of my machine to make room for software that actually works.
Do es not hace a SplitView? 3/5
By Hernán brito
Hey Hp include SplitView in the iPad app, Pleaseeeee!!!!
It used to work 1/5
It was fast and worked well. It won't pair even though everything is on the same connection.
Won’t even get past the pairing screen 1/5
By this is greatamazon
It crashes one I go to the pairing screen
Connection Issues 1/5
Having issues with my iPhone connecting. Purchased laptop 3 months ago, and iPhone 4 months ago. Not sure but almost positive it’s the app that needs to be fixed.
Horrible pairing 1/5
By celery beetle
I paired once, got a new phone and can’t pair anymore
Won’t work with iPhone 10 2/5
By Nickname not 100
Worked fine with iPhone 7 won’t work with 10😡
Worked great for one month 1/5
I was so thrilled with this app when I first got my 2 in 1 notebook but quickly got frustrated with it when it would not connect to anything anymore. Now I’m emailing photos to myself from my phone again 😖
Very Fickle, Unreliable 1/5
By Get Over It, People
When this app works it’s fine. But most of the time either devices won’t pair with your computer or the photos will not transfer or they hang up when they transfer. Completely unreliable.
I am unable to get it to pair to my iPhone 7plus. It tells me to get on WiFi, so I do, then when I am it says it’s unable to pair!!
Doesn’t work 1/5
Won't pair 1/5
App is garbage, no support for an app that won't pair, not wprth your time... I have a HP Omen and it's the best thing ever but this is the only thing that doesn't work on it
It works fine but it’s pretty much useless 5/5
All you can do is send photos, text, and links. You can’t even send any videos that are too long. I guess it’s good if you forgot your charging cable and had to sync photos to your laptop. I wish you can do more like phone mirroring.
I’ve tried this app and it is connected to a scam. Thank goodness I did not allow the support number access to my computer. Just beware because when it doesn’t work and you call support they want access. It’s not worth it. They’ve attempted to call me back and give me a number to call. When I googled the number844-814-1800, I learned it’s a scam.
Upsetting bad program 1/5
Allowed Orbit to “make changes to my computer” in order to use this seemingly helpful program. My computer instantly could no longer load web pages and upon a restart attempt, is not working at all. Won’t load Windows, won’t turn off. Wonder how much this wonderful free app will end up costing me.
Maybe a go on 2 Apple Devices 1/5
It doesn’t work on PC Windows 10, but nothing really works on Microsoft anymore- waste of time— Microsoft needs to hire more people— I hope they go under
I wouldn’t even give it a star 1/5
Extremely disappointed in this app. Can even get past the pairing. When I press the pair button it dose not work. I press the go button on my keyboard it still doesn’t work. Can’t really say much about the app if I can’t get in. 🙄
It never worked for me 1/5
Pairings never completed. PC never discovered. Broken app!!
Such a Shame 😔 PLEASE READ 2/5
This app used to work lovely. My photos would show up on my other devices in seconds, but now they won’t load to save my life. I’ve tried everything. All of my devices are on the exact same network and all it says is it will download content when connected to the same network. It didn’t used to be trash. But this app has worked horribly these past months. I would recommend not downloading until the developers update the app, or else it would just be a waste of space. Hope this review helps.
Might as Well Delete It 1/5
I wish it worked. It’s a neat idea and I loved it the few times it worked, but my success was short-lived. Sending from iPhone to PC doesn’t work anymore. I can see the pic trying to come through, but it never finishes. And when attempting to send from PC to iPhone 8+ or iPhone 6, I can drag-and-drop files to the app with success, but the + sign to add a file stopped working. It’s not clickable anymore.
It kinda feels like I broke the app the day I tried to send more than two files at once. It hung up and never really worked right again after that. Maybe I should reinstall it on my PC.
By Grateful Student 91
This app works as often as it snows in Arizona. Pretty sad considering the ease of sharing files between computers connected to the same wifi network.
I'd like to think the app developers are ashamed of how terrible this app is. However, we all know they already knew that before they released it, and this is just more HP fodder to try to stay in competition with far superior companies like Apple. Instead, it further drives home the point that those companies are so superior.
I guess this is worth a try if you're desperate, but I would just email whatever it is to yourself.
Pretty Cool - it works! 5/5
Nice to have around - works perfect between my Windows 10 HP desktop and iPhone.
The most fickle, flaky app 1/5
I’ve never used an app that was as flaky as this one. When it works, it’s fantastic. The problem is that it doesn’t work very often. At all. Most of the time the app will not start at all. When it does start, it almost immediately locks up, reports that it has encountered a problem and then requires forcing it closed. The only workaround fixes I’ve found to reenable it include deleting the app from both iPhone and computer, and reinstalling (which is and enormous pain since you then have to re-sync the two), or restart both devices. My computer is very new, with plenty of resources, and is constantly updated and secured, so I feel confident that the issues don’t have to do with the laptop. I’ve often resorted to going back to the old school method of emailing files to myself between the two devices to avoid all of the headaches this app causes. If it weren’t so flaky, I would be a huge fan. It simply isn’t worth the headaches.
Don’t waste your time 1/5
By Househusband 60
I tried pairing this with my iPad on two different occasions and it doesn’t pair. Sounded like a good program. I rebooted both my iPad and my HP computer and it still didn’t work. HP help file wasn’t helpful at all.
Simply doesn’t work 1/5
I’ve tried going through the process to setting it up but all I get is the notification that “We couldn’t pair because we couldn’t find any PCs in pairing mode”
It worked great... 1/5
First of all, it was extremely difficult to find a download for this app on pc without google play, my hp doesn’t support google play and I cannot download it from google play App Store website it keeps directing me to the google play app
I had it working for a while and it was great, until it glitches out then back to the old excruciating time consuming hunt for this god dam program to get back and working....NOTHING!!!!!!
Can you make this work HP!!!?
Piece of junk 1/5
Such a useless piece of crap
Not working 1/5
I just bought a new hp computer and I can’t get this app to sync with it!!! I’m I doing something wrong???
Sometimes unusable 1/5
This app has so much potential and yet it is ignored by HP, which makes this app practically useless since it’s bug-ridden.
I ll be a very helpful app, if it works 1/5
Everything went well for first 2-3 days. Then after the app doesn’t respond. It is a very potential app which instantly transfer photos and links form phone to laptop. I request HP to work on this app.
This SHOULD work, but apparently HP doesn’t want to take the time to get it to function properly.
Intermittently stops working 2/5
Worked great for a few months, then I had a problem transferring a larger video file....now it only works sumXs....too unreliable
HP Fails 1/5
How can this be fixed yet
Don't waste your time. Uninstalling! 1/5
I downloaded the HP Orbit app because it came pre-installed on my new pc. This app/program is useless. Don't waste your time. It had so much potential if it would actually work. You're better off using something like Dropbox.
What code 2/5
Where do you find the Code for HP Orbit?
Laptop and Iphone on same WIFI connection.
Not at all helpful 1/5
This app worked three times and then ever since it's gone way downhill! I can't even send pictures anymore. Thought this app was going to be a lifesaver but that was totally wrong. Hope this gets fixed!
Don't work 1/5
PC not found error. Put in code on iPhone 6pls won't connect.
Turn off firewall to pair a device 4/5
By Chuck 33567
I just spent probably 2 hrs trying going to get orbit to pair with my computer. Then after finding no help from HP I saw something about firewall issues. I turned them off then everything paired!
Doesn't pair 1/5
Doesn't pair with my iPhone 7 plus. Says "We couldn't pair because we didn't find any PCs in pairing mode".
Doesn't even pair 1/5
By Download myhappiness
I have an iPhone 6s and it refuses to pair with my hp envy. The message I get is "We couldn't pair because we couldn't find any PC's in pairing mode". I tried searching the Internet and I have found nothing to help me with this. Would not recommend the app.
Will not connect 1/5
I couldn't get pass error message. Got frustrated and gave up😞
Will Not Pair with my Phone 1/5
I put in the code that my laptop gives me and when I try to pair it. It says "no pc's in pairing mode"
Won't Pair with my IPhone 6s 1/5
I too have a problem with my new HP Spectre X360. I have an IPhone 6S and everthing works well until I hit the PAIR button on my phone. Then I get the message that I can't not find a PC that is in pairing mode. I went online with HP and they couldn't get it to work either.
Little tricky 4/5
Well I got a new laptop about 3 weeks ago & came with this hp orbit installed. I synced it with my 6s plus & worked perfectly first 2 days and then all of a sudden nothing would transfer over! However I just tried a new way. If you go to your photos directly & hit the share button you can choose hp orbit app and it works fine like that. Takes a bit longer & seems unnecessary considering you should be able to do it directly from the app but hey make it happen!
Doesn't pair with my iPhone 6 1/5
I've tried several times. I get the code on my laptop, enter it in the app on my phone and it fails because it "didn't find any PCs in paring mode".
Won't connect 1/5
Tried restating both phone and pc and won't connect
Would be great if it worked 2/5
I just bought a new HP Spectre, it came with this software pre-installed. I absolutely loved it for the 2 days that it worked but the software on my laptop will not sync.
