Google Photos for iOS gets a new cropping tool

Earlier this month, Google pushed out an update for Google Photos on Android, and now it has followed it up with an update for iOS, taking that app up to version 1.12.1.

Pokemon GO estimated earnings top $14 million in less than a week

Since it seems like you can't throw a stone without hitting three or four Pokemon GO players, it's safe to say the game has turned out to be quite popular. Just how popular is it, though?
