Pokemon Go Becomes Most Popular Mobile Game in US History
Jul 15 2016
To put this in perspective SurveyMonkey observed that "Pokémon Go Android could surpass Google Maps itself as the largest user of Alphabet's mapping data". The record-breaking statistics make the new app "the biggest mobile game in USA history".
Considering that Pokémon Go accumulated twice as many installs as popular dating app Tinder just one day after launching, this news doesn't come as a huge surprise.
But, downloading the game using these accounts have not solved their problems, as many are reporting that there are no Pokemon to catch and the maps are barren.
None the less, the stats are staggering considering the fact that the game managed to beat the top social media apps so easily.
SensorTower reports that Pokemon GO is making around $1.6 million per day, and that revenue estimate is limited to iOS only. Which probably explains all the people you see everywhere catching Pokemon like they're all starring in your very own version of Invasion of the Body Snatchers. What are your thoughts?
