As of early this morning, 6/28/2011, a new program was released for open beta. This program is called Pokki and it is some what of an app store for Windows.

Like the Mac App Store, where users can download apps and programs directly to their macs, Pokki is a small program that does something similar. Basically you go to Pokki.com and initiate a download of an app and along with that app the whole program is downloaded. After that any other apps you download can be done directly from your Windows Desktop.

Looks like the quick launch bar.

 

How can Pokki benefit me?

Pokki might not benefit you being on a desktop as of right now, seeing as how there are just a few apps on it. You could simply just use your browser to get the same effect. However at this moment Pokki could very well be used if you just want a quick look at your email, ebay bids, twitter, or RSS Feeds.

Overall First Impression:

My overall first impression of Pokki would have to be that it is a neat idea and defiantly deserves its time in the sun. However if Pokki doesn’t get some serious programmers to make apps for it, then it might fade away into internet history. The good thing about this program is that it is real easy to acquire it and start programming for it. Seeing as how it uses simple programming languages like HTML5, CSS3, and Javascript makes it really easy to start coding for it.
