I have used pip to install orange and the installation seemed fine. There was not Orange icon on my ubuntu 16.04 desktop and tried orange3 in the command line, it didn't work, and tried python3 -m orange and python3 -m orange 3 and neither worked as well.

How can I use orange?

From the Orange3 Pypi documentation :

To start Orange GUI from the command line, assuming it was successfully installed, run:

orange-canvas # or python3 -m Orange.canvas

You should fire up a python console and try import orange.

If it doesn't give you any errors then the installation succeeded.

For the GUI, try something like:python /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/Orange/OrangeCanvas/orngCanvas.pyw (change python version)
