Pokki is a desktop app that lets you install and play various games, as well as lets you pin your favorite web apps like Facebook or Gmail to the taskbar in Windows 7.

Pokki is easy to install and launch. From there, you can search for and install a variety of different apps. Some fun games include Four Horsemen, Tweeki, and Mixtape. You can search for new apps to install directly from the app store on your desktop. App downloads and installs take no more than a few seconds usually.

Each app in Pokki has its own settings and must be individually configured and authorized in the correspondent web application. Although they don’t include all the functions offered by the original web app itself, they do display the number of unread items and show desktop notifications. This can be pretty useful when tracking email and social networks.

Pokki is ever increasing its app selection, and offers a variety of different apps for all ages and interests. The developer's website even includes a special area to encourage developers to create more app. Given time, Pokki will hopefully expand its app selection even more.

Pokki lets you pin websites, social networks and other utilities to the Windows 7 taskbar, as well as download challenging and fun games.
