Poke Radar is First Pokemon Go App to Latch onto the Viral Game at #2 in App Store

The Pokemon Go hype is still unstoppable. The app stores around the world are dominated by Pokemon Go in the free app and top grossing app charts. Now a third party Pokemon Go app takes the second spot in the top free apps on iTunes in the United States. Poke Radar for Pokemon Go is an assistant app for discovering the location of any Pokemon that's been found by other players.

Poke Radar is not affiliated with Niantic, Pokemon company or Nintendo. Four "dudes" from Seattle including Braydon Batungbacal developed the app and the web version of Poke Radar. The service got to popular and Batungbacal has just taken to social media to plead with Google to raise the Google Maps API limit for Poke Radar.

With Poke Radar you can view all of the nearby Pokemon in your area that have been discovered by yourself and other players on the map, along with the times of day they were found.

The app is especially useful to spot rare Pokemon in your neighborhood. If you're trying to find a specific Pokemon's location, you can quickly use the "Filter" feature to find the nearest one.

Poke Radar for Pokemon Go is community driven. Users have to input the location of the Pokemon they spotted for others to find. All Pokemon location submissions have the ability to be "Upvoted" or "Downvoted" by others. If a submission receives too many "Downvotes" it will be automatically removed from the map. Highly "Upvoted" locations will receive display priority on the map.

The Poke Radar app is available for free in the iTunes, with an Android app coming soon. The web version is available at pokeradar.io.

Pokemon Go has been rolled out to most areas in the world, besides Asia. The latest country that has been officially launched is Canada. Pokemon Go has started to launch on July. Pokemon Go maker Niantic struggled to keep up with the demand, causing servers to go down several times since the launch. Hackers are threating to attack the Pokemon Go servers. The startup has to fight on several fronts to keep Pokemon Go a great experience. Besides having Nintendo involved, Niantic is a startup with rather modest funding. The success of the game has let Nintendo's market value double since July 6.
