We all know that Pokemon Go is one of the most viral apps that is currently ruling the world right now. Its limited availability is limiting the full blown capacity by which it can get even more popular. According to the current trends in the world, every viral app or website or video is accompanied by something such that people can piggyback on the popularity of the viral content and garner some popularity for their own. Poke Radar is one such application that acts as an assistant for Pokemon Go players. As you might well be aware Pokemon Go is a game that involves catching virtual Pokemons in the real world. For the uninitiated, this might sound a bit surprising, but the new concept of Augmented Reality makes it possible. AR based games and apps were present from the very beginning, but people did not take much notice until the time Pokemon Go came about. Also, phones and tablets were not AR capable. It is only now that all the phone manufacturing companies and tech giants are thinking of making Augmented Reality a necessary ingredient of every smartphone.
What is Poke Radar?
As previously mentioned the game involves catching Pokemons in the real world through travel. With time, however, several problems have cropped up, the most significant of which is the same Pokemon appearing again and again for users. After walking or traveling for some time if you find a Pokemon that you already have, then it is going to be a really frustrating experience and this has been reported all over the world for quite some time now. The Pokemon Go app does not have any search filter such that it might be able to warn you that the Pokemon that you are trying to catch is already in your inventory. This is where Poke Radar comes in. The Poke Radar features a map where users will be able to see Pokemons in real time. A significant advantage that this app has over other assistant apps is that it is user fed which means that all the information that appears on the app or the map is authentic as some user or the other has seen or encountered what is being shown on the map. A downside is that if any user decides to keep useful information for himself/herself, then the other users of the app are helpless. Another disadvantage of the app that people have reported about quite often is that people sometimes get malicious and input wrong information intentionally in order to mislead other players and get ahead in the game. This problem, however, has been resolved by introducing the voting system.
How to use Poke Radar?
- According to this system whenever a user puts in some information other users get to approve or down vote the entry. If a user provides accurate information, then he/she receives many positive votes and also makes a name for himself/herself as a good ethical player.
- On the other hand, if a player provides wrong information intentionally then he/she would be receiving down votes which would build a reputation of the player as being malicious and then they would automatically be avoided by others. This app is regrettably only available now for iOS, but the developers have assured that an Android version is on the way.
- What users have to do in this app is they have to search for Pokemons and when they find the desired one they travel to the place where they can catch it. After successfully catching the Pokemon the user can then Pin the location to inform others of Pokemons present in the area and even the name of the Pokemons that are available so that people can decide whether to go to the location or not. There is a Pin button on the map which players can use to tag their location, and their names will also appear on these labels.
- There are many other assistant apps that people can use to make the search for Pokemons in Pokemon Go much easier, but this app has the advantage over others because of its crucial ability to filter Pokemons thereby avoiding repeats. So there you go with the Poke Radar app. Use it wisely in order to help yourself as well as others.
