Pokki is updating

In August 2012, Pokki exited beta, announced 1 million monthly active users, and released the Pokki Menu, an app launcher for access, management, and discovery of its apps, and a notification center for real-time updates.As Lenovo struggles to extricate itself from the controversy surrounding pre-installed Superfish scumware on its machines, a blast of cruft from the past may give the PC slinger's critics extra ammo this week.Pin and organize your favorite apps and websites just like you would on your smartphone. Pokki Start Menu is a software program developed by Sweet Labs.

The installed file Host App Service is the auto-update component of the program which is designed to check for software updates and notify and apply them when new versions are discovered.

(Windows 10 has resurrected the menu, for what it's worth.) The Pokki menu includes an app store of sorts, inviting people to install stuff like games and other tat, and it will display tweets and other notifications.

Pokki menu is a replacement for the Windows 8.1 start menu.

The same can also be done by downgrading Windows 8 to Windows 7.

Many users find Pokki quite useful and enjoy the many benefits if offers.
