Pokki: other Windows 8 Start Menu
Pokki name hear very cute, it is the software that serves to provide the Start Menu in Windows 8. Was similar to the launcher software I think.
I find and use Pokki instead of my search for the missing Start Menu in Windows 8, but the search for desktop application of GMail. Previously I have tried Adobe Air with GMail app but I do not like. This software more interesting.
First try, GMail app.
It’s very similar with the website version and practical use. No need to open Internet Browser first before loading GMail. More fast you check the “Remember Me” option when you Login so no need to fill the username and password again next time you use it. The desktop notification run well, this is more I love about. I don’t know with the GMail because there is no incoming email yet, Twitter app that I installed show notification count on the icon beside notification badge. Show like on smartphone.
The Start Menu and many application available
This is like application launcher, Windows 8.1 bring back the Start Menu.
Very easy to customized and many application available in it Apps Store especially popular applications like Facebook, Twitter, Google apps group, etc. I prefer this application as it runs on the Desktop, not in other places such as the Windows 8 applications.
So if you are interesting too, visit the website directly and download. This is freeware.
