                "#00d9d9"  // brandColor
        ),
        new OrbComposer(
               "Type your message",  // placeHolderText

        new OrbSplash(
                "Ready to connect"  // readyText
        )
));

if (!orb.ready) {
    orb.setOnReadyListener(new Orb.ReadyListener() {
        public void onReady() {
            Log.d(TAG, "Orb runtime ready");
            orb.configure(config);
        }

configure method otherwise your config parameters will not be saved.
