Pokemon GO Update today: download APK

This morning the newest update to Pokemon GO was released with a couple of feature changes. This is the first update to the game since version 0.37, a notorious release due to its major steps against hackers and game mechanic exploiters. Today's update goes by version number 0.39, and it includes an update for the Pokemon GO Plus. This update allows the user of a Pokemon GO Plus accessory to see and capture Pokemon that appear around them as a result of Incense.

Why Nintendo chose iPhone over Android

Why Nintendo chose iPhone over Android

It's become obvious that Apple has somehow shaken hands with Nintendo in a way that's brought the first real Nintendo-made Nintendo character game to their platform first. That game goes by the name Super Mario Run, a game which is a mobile-friendly edition of the first several Mario games mixed into one future-ready package. Today we find out why it was Apple, not Google and Android, that got to get the game first.

iPhone 7 claimed to have been jailbroken in just 24 hours

iPhone 7 claimed to have been jailbroken in just 24 hours

Jailbreaking iPhones is like a game of cat and mouse. Each new update, especially major ones, patch up holes and flaws that jailbreakers use to gain full access to the device and the OS. So, naturally, when the iPhone 7 came out with iOS 10, the belief was that it would be considerably harder to pry open. Harder? Yes. Considerably? Apparently not, as a certain 19 year old hacker by the name of Luca Todesco claims he was able to jailbreak the iPhone 7 in just 24 hours. Unfortunately for the jailbreaking community, he isn’t sharing it just yet.

iPhone 7 Review

iPhone 7 Review

It's ironic, a new iPhone is usually the specter hanging over rival smartphones, but it's the promise of their unannounced successor that looms above the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Mauled even before launch by vocal criticism of Apple's decision to abandon the decades-old headphone jack, and stung by accusations that these new handsets play it safe rather than push the envelope, could 2016's iPhone really be a disappointment?

With Google Pixel, the Android promise fulfilled, at last!

With Google Pixel, the Android promise fulfilled, at last!

This October Google will have fulfilled the promise they've been making on the Android operating system for the past decade. In the year 2005, Google acquired Android. In 2011, Google acquired Motorola (then, not long after, sold everything but their patents). In 2016, Google is in a position to not only create a set of Android smartphones and control the hardware, sales, and distribution, but the software, too. Google will be panned for copying Apple's game plan with these devices, but these devices will be exactly what consumers want, and will buy.

Yahoo View hits iPhones and iPads

Google Allo released with iMessage’s biggest mistake

Google Allo released with iMessage’s biggest mistake

Apple was sued in May of 2014 for an iMessage texting snafu that was the bane of mobile carrier help desk assistants' existence. "Why am I not getting my text messages," they'd say, "I was getting them just fine on my iPhone, now on this Android phone I can't see them." Google is making a mistake at the launch of Google Allo - routing messages - including SMS messages - through their own servers, capturing one's phone number in the process.

Hello Google Allo smart messenger! Download the APK here

Back in late May, Google revealed two new messaging platforms, each with its own distinct appeal. Duo, the tech giant’s latest take on simplified video chats, already launched a while ago.

Calling it a smart messaging app, Allo promises to not only make it easier to reply to messages by barely typing anything, it also tries to bring some AI-powered smartness via a preview version of Google Assistant through, what else but a chatbot.

Pokemon GO Plus store tracker update : Walmart, Gamestop, Target, Amazon

The Pokemon GO Plus is released and quickly goes out of stock in online stores and retail outlets across the United States.
