Pokemon GO APK download and what to avoid

Pokemon GO APK download and what to avoid

Those in the minority in the world today unable to play Pokemon GO are searching for the app before final release. As such, today we're reporting on the only safe locations for download and loading of the game Pokemon GO. Spoiler alert: user choices are few and in-between. To avoid hackers and exploits of all sorts, users are going to need to stay away from sites they don't trust. As Tim Erlin, Senior Director of IT Security and Risk Strategy for Tripwire suggested earlier this month, "When it comes to malware, you really don't want to catch 'em all."

The Galaxy Note 7 appears here with a curved-edge display only.

Huawei seeks to overtake Apple in smartphone shipments

IDC's most recent smartphone shipment report suggests that as Apple's smartphone unit shipments decline, Huawei rises, and Samsung pulls further away from the pack.

Google Docs and Sheets get third-party Android add-ons

Google just made Docs and Sheets a bit more attractive with the launch of Android add-ons — that is, third-party tools on Android that add extra functionality to Google’s office software. Assuming you’re viewing a particular document using your Android mobile device (and that you’ve downloaded the appropriate add-on), you could do things like sign a sheet or document using DocuSign, scan a document into Docs using Scanbot, and more.

Galaxy Note 7 pre-release first impressions video details flatness

A full 11-minute-long hands-on video has surfaced showing the Galaxy Note 7 from Samsung.

Today Pokemon GO server status is down: what to do

Today Pokemon GO server status is down: what to do

This morning Pokemon GO began seeing service disruptions in Japan - now the spread has headed toward the United States. Service disruptions have been reported throughout the United States, though this disruption seems to be affecting the East Coast most of all. We're also seeing reports galore coming from pockets of activity in California - though, given that the coast is one of two of the world's most-visited Pokemon spots, that bit isn't the least bit surprising.

HTC Nexus “Marlin” render unsurprisingly looks like an HTC 10

HTC Nexus “Marlin” render unsurprisingly looks like an HTC 10

We aren't hearing much about Google's upcoming Nexus smartphone, or smartphones, which isn't that unusual given the flood of information coming in for the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 and the iPhone 7. However, not everyone is a Sammy or Apple fan and some are more interested in the vanilla goodness of a Nexus. For those of you in that crowd, TechDroider is giving you some respite by showing off a render that it made based off all the leaks available so far. In short, this is as close as we'll get until Google officially proves otherwise.

Pokemon Radar downloads: the app everyone is cheating with

Pokemon Radar downloads: the app everyone is cheating with

Cheating at Pokemon GO isn't especially difficult, as a rabble of Android and iOS developers will tell you this week. Today the quickest rising app on either app store is an app called "Poke Radar" which, as you'll soon find out, isn't what it suggests it is. It works just how it says it's supposed to, but if you're looking for a Pokemon Radar that works, you'll need to look elsewhere. Meanwhile, there's an app called "Poke Scanner" that'll do just what you want it to.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 detail leak you’ve prayed for before release day

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 detail leak you’ve prayed for before release day

The Galaxy Note 7 iteration you'd been hoping you'd see is here - or at least appears very much to be here. This is what we can only assume is the flat version of the Galaxy Note 7, the standard version. The version of the device that makes more sense for the general public than the Edge version. Both the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 and the Galaxy Note 7 Edge will very likely be popping up on the 2nd of August in full color - and with edge-like sides either on the front, the back, or both.
