July 27, 2016
Over the last few weeks, Pokémon Go has virtually taken over the world. It was downloaded more times in its first week than any other app in history, in fact. Now, an analytics firm has estimated that the game has crossed another milestone, likely racking up a ridiculous 75 million downloads. Many fans and critics are praising its ability to bring gaming into the real world, forcing Pokémon fans to go outside, get active and socialize. The game uses your phone’s GPS and clock to detect where in the real world and shows you locations of Pokémons around you so you can go and catch them. As you move around, different and more types of Pokémon appear depending on your location and what time it is. When you have to catch a Pokémon, the game incorporates augmented reality and shows the creature in the real world on your phone's screen.
