What is Pokki?
Pokki is a software application that is getting increasingly popular among Windows 8 users. This application framework program is developed by SweetLabs, Inc, and it helps users to keep all of their apps simply a mouse click away. According to pokki.com, the application is compatible with Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8. The users of the latter operating system tend to find this legitimate application rather useful, because it restores Windows start menu which is originally omitted from Windows 8. The best part about Pokki being a legitimate program is that you can remove it from your computer whenever you want, although it will hardly happen if you find the application useful.
Why is Pokki popular?
“Pokki for Windows 8” was released in October, 2012, and by January, 2013, it has been reported that the application had over 1.5 million users. Why is it so? Well, most probably because Windows 8 primarily is intended for tablets and other portable devices, while the desktop version is somewhat pushed aside. Nevertheless, a great number of people still perform most of their computing on the traditional PCs, so the lack of Start menu on Windows 8 has been and still is highly criticized.
This is actually where Pokki comes in. Once you have this application installed, each time you tap your Windows key, a Pokki window will pop-up, displaying a list of applications. Each time you type a name of an application, it will pop-up next to the custom Pokki apps, because the search results appear on your screen real-time from the web.
What are the disadvantages?
Apart from the fact that Pokki is a useful program, it is far from being perfect, because it depends on the web search for the applications. That being said, the applications that appear in Pokki’s search cannot intermingle with the documents and other files saved on your hard drive. Also, Pokki does not allow you to look for a specific website.
Nevertheless, if you take a look at the specific apps and how Pokki allows you to organize them, the disadvantages of the application will probably be outweighed.
Is Pokki safe?
Pokki is a legitimate application and it is 100% safe. However, you are strongly recommended to download and install Pokki ONLY from the official website. It is very likely that the same application distributed by third party websites could be bundled with additional potentially unwanted programs. Although Pokki is absolutely safe to use, if you have installed it via a third party website, and you want to uninstall the application, follow the instructions below.
