"Won't run on my PC."
Version: Pokki 0.260
unknown - I seem unable to install the programme at all.
Running the exe downloaded from Pokki directly results in the following error:
"Installation failed - Sorry! Something went wrong. If you continue to encounter this error please visit http://support.pokki.com"
It provides no explanation for the error, no log files, and no actual support at the support.pokki site.
The download helper, downloaded via CNET (but not CNET's own download helper) produces a similar error:
"Sorry! Something went wrong" which offers a "Help me fix this" button that links to the same support site which provides no help.
"Still needs work to find it's potential."

Neat program, works well.
Dosen't match up to Google Chrome
For Windows 8 users who want the old 'start' button, Pokki may be useful. I only installed it because I had downloaded a couple free games from utorrent that required Pokki to run.
I, however installed it on my netbook running Windows 7 & though it works fairly well, I can't see that it would be of much use.The interface window filled most of my screen, & though there was a settings option to move it to any of the four corners of the screen, the window stayed stubbornly where it was. It could not be dragged across the screen either.
The sample apps I got from the Pokki web store all worked, but the choice was somewhat limited. Presumably this will improve in time. However the windows that the games appeared in are mainly too big for a netbook screen & either will not or cannot be re-sized.
I use Google Chrome & find that Pokki is a poor substitute to the combination of browser & app store that Google offers. (I'm aware that I'm not comparing like for like, but it's close enough).
In short, Pokki has limitations at present, though I can see the potential for greatness if & when it's limitations are corrected.
