search cancel – Mobile Apps On Your Desktop

Pokki.comPokki is a new application store and platform for desktops. It aims to take the inherent versatility that mobile apps always have, and couple that with the accessibility of their desktop counterparts. Once one has installed Pokki on his computer (only PCs are supported for now), then he will be able to start buying and deploying apps for pretty much every significant website available today – Facebook, Gmail, eBay, Living Social… These apps then become listed on the desktop of the user, and the respective services can be accessed in one click from there. And instant notifications are sent whenever new activity has taken place.


The main selling point of Pokki is how it lets people access web content in a browser-free environment. All of the featured applications have been built using HTML5, CSS and Javascript, and the idea is to let users replicate the experience they have when using mobile apps right on their desktops.

As mentioned above, Pokki is a PC-only service. But that is set to change soon, with a Mac-friendly version of the app going to be released before too long. In Their Own Words
