The viral Pokemon game may have seen already its highest usage day in the United States.

People spend twice as much time in Pokemon Go than in Facebook. The excitement about Pokemon Go has according to new data calmed down a bit. According to SurveyMonkey the daily active users of Pokemon Go in the United States peaked on July 14 with 25 million trainers. This level stayed pretty constant until July 16.

The latest data point is though around 22 million on July 20. While there is a drop, the numbers are still insane. About 8% of all Americans (324 million) are playing Pokemon Go on a daily basis.

The Pokemon Go app made an historic debut on the Apple App store. The app broke all record and got the most downloads in the first week ever. SurveyMonkey's data puts the day after the release as the day with the most downloads, close to 6 millions.

Daily downloads are now around 1 million per day, which is more than enough to keep the #1 spot in the free app download charts. Pokemon Go developer Niantic has not rolled out the augmented reality game to the whole world. Only Japan got the game in Asia. In some countries like South Korea, the game will have issues as there is limited GPS map data.
