Who would have thought that an April’s Fool prank by Google back in 2014 would become such a huge sensation on July 6, 2016? It has been just over a week that Pokemon Go was released, and it has taken the internet by storm. The popularity of the augmented reality-meets-GPS game has spread like wildfire with hordes of Pokemon trainers taking to the street to catch these adorable creatures that were created 20 years ago.
The app is available on both iOS and Google Playstore but, as of now, is only made available to users residing in Australia, Germany, New Zealand, the United States and the United Kingdom. Even after being launched in such few countries, the game is struggling to maintain the load its servers are facing. The sheer amount of downloads it is getting every day is staggering. The game took 13 hours to hit the top spot in the US and merely 3 hours to reach the same landmark in Germany. Pokemon Go is currently registering a greater average usage time than Facebook, Snapchat and Twitter on a daily basis. It has taken over our lives and might quite possibly be the most successful mobile app of all time.
Niantec is slowly rolling out the game to other countries as well. However, the second wave of launches will also be restricted to a few countries of Europe and Asia. If you are highly restless and absolutely want to play the game, there is always a workaround.
You can download the app file from the internet and install it in your phone. So, there you have it. No more refreshing your app store on a regular basis and feeling left out of all the hoopla. In fact, this trick has been one of the reasons why the servers of the game can’t handle the load. People from all around the world are using this workaround to play the game, which is making the job all the more harder for the servers.
