PokemonGO Gets a New Version

Just days after being made available in the U.S., the mobile game Pokemon Go has jumped to become the top-grossing app in the App Store. And players have reported wiping out in a variety of ways as they wander the real world, eyes glued to their smartphone screens, in search of digital monsters. (AP Photo/Richard Vogel)

This PokemonGo business is truly dominating the world right now! People of all ages are glued to their phone in obsession over this video game you can take anywhere with you – and is, in fact, designed to get you off the couch to chase down the Pokemon in your area!

While the app is gaining more and more popularity, it is also starting to take some heat for flaws in the system. This week, a man in New York was caught cheating on his girlfriend due to the GPS tracking in the game (she saw that he caught a Pokemon at his ex girlfriend’s house)! Several other stories like this have people rising their eyebrows: “Just how much information is Google pulling from your phone once you’ve downloaded the app?”

Yesterday was the launch of PokemonGo version 1.0.1 – which is supposedly going to be addressing some of these privacy issues.

Looks like we won’t be seeing the end of “Catching Em All” any tine soon!
