Lenovo Brings the Start Menu Back to Select Windows 8 PCs
Developed by SweetLabs, the full version of Pokki will come pre-installed on select Lenovo desktops and notebooks running Windows 8. While the reemergence of the Start Menu is a primary selling point, Pokki also introduces modern desktop apps, real-time notifications, games, and more.
"We started SweetLabs with the dream of building the world’s largest app distribution platform – connecting the right apps with the right users," SweetLabs stated in a blog post. "While developers continue to fight for attention and distribution in the crowded iOS, Android, and Facebook channels, we’ve unlocked a massive, new channel – enabling the opportunity to recommend and promote apps on brand new Lenovo PCs."
SweetLabs also announced that it's expanding the scope of Pokki. Its app store and app recommendation platform now supports additional app types, including traditional Windows desktop apps. In addition, Pokki now supports 13 languages.
