What is Pokki?

The time to harness the full capabilities of HTML5, CSS3, AJAX and Javascript has come. Pokki.com is a new desktop application that sits in your taskbar from which you can download small applications that are beautiful and useful at the same  time! It’s very fast, clean and easy to use. Currently there is a good bunch of apps you can use, Facebook, Tweeki, Gmail, productivity applications as well as other social apps.

Pokki Developer’s platform

Pokki’s developer’s platform allows you to develop your own apps, which you can submit to Pokki’s app store and if approved it will be available for all users to download. I still didn’t go through the code yet, but it seems very promising and well documented.

Pokki are now throwing a 50,000$ challenge for whoever can create a new application.

Conclusion

Even though the concept is not new, Pokki does a great job at portraying it with a very flexible, easy to use interface. The user experience for this product as a whole has been great so far. In addition, even though it’s still in Beta I haven’t found any severe or major bugs yet.
