Out of the box Windows 7 taskbar support Pinning, Jump Lists and Live taskbar previews for Windows application. However there is no support for pinning your favorite Webapps. pokki is a free application, that enable you to pin Webapps just like you pin your windows application.
Once installed, they appear as icons on the taskbar and pops out when you click them, enabling easy access. If you are a web developer, you can also create a Pokki app using the API and add it to the list once it is approved.
Each Pokki has three primary interface elements that users see and may interact with;
- Taskbar icon – an icon located in the Pokki area of the user’s taskbar. Clicking on the icon opens and closes the Pokki’s pop-up window.
- Pop-up window – a window which is displayed when the user clicks on the Pokki’s icon. This window’s content is complete dynamic, provides rich interactivity, is designed and defined by you.
- Badge – a small badge displayed over the top right of the Pokki’s icon. Inside the badge is a number, which you may set and clear through the pop-up window or background process (more on this later).
The figure below shows the three interface elements for which Pokki users see and interact.
