    Unfortunately no support for Android Nougat, really wanted an excuse to go out and walk.

    I am not, but literally everyone I work with has been playing this.

    I've been meaning to try Pokemon Go out but I have yet to install it. I know that its been hugely popular though. We were doing our live stream and everyone went berserk when a Dragonite appeared outside of Dizzy's (the channel owner) apartment. He jumped up and went to catch it but his wife was faster haha.

    I can't because of my lack of mobility. It's frustrating because there are Pokestops and gyms right near my house but because they're just out of range of where I -can- walk they're useless. If they'd made the little train station not 150 feet from me a location I could have but nope so I uninstalled it.

    I don't really have any interest in it myself. It's dominating my workplace though.

    One thing that is kinda crazy is someone in my state (in the US) found a dead body in a park. In a neighboring state players found someone who had overdosed and called 911 and saved his life. So even though it's a bit disturbing at least crimes are being solved. :P

    I have already had to cope with my friends taking a detour "just to check a couple more stops, I'm out of pokeballs".

    Meanwhile, my phone refuses to let the **** app get a GPS signal so I uninstalled in frustration (it's probably for the best, lol).

    Last night, I was pokéwalking with my little brother and we were taking down a gym (go team yellow!) near my house and some random dude walks by and just says, "what team are you guys on?" (he was team red – boo!). The scope of the player base is amazing. Just walking around downtown, you could see people all over the place, crowding around locations with lures, etc.

    I'm enjoying the game from a purely cultural-phenomenon-watching perspective myself (I really don't need another thing to procrastinate with). I've heard some really interesting stories about how the game's bringing lots of people who would normally never talk to each other together. My friends who play have some truly hilarious anecdotes about how they're having trouble balancing their over-competitive natures and fear of falling behind with the demands of lab work. I'm also super bemused by the geographic variability in team prevalence. Some anthropologist could get a lot of good information out of this game.

    I love the discoverability of things in my local neighborhood that I otherwise would probably never have noticed if they weren't pokéstops. To me, that's awesome. Like yesterday, I found an antique shop I didn't know existed. Or much smaller things – like a small piece of art, or a clock or something.

    Plus, it's kind of cool carrying a pokémon tricorder. :lol:

    It might launch here in Japan today... the wait is driving me nuts. :P I guess the server capacity wasn't going to be enough to handle it when the entire country bands together to hunt pokemon, so they had to wait :(

    I couldn't login for a number of hours yesterday – I'm assuming it went live. :lol:

    There were some construction workers down the street installing glass panes into a store front, and when I went into the store to buy stuff I saw that some of them were looking for pokemon as they were installing the windows lol

    No need for that. It was patched to support Nougat back in November.

  • There are no Pokémon where I live, might be cause I live in a small village not sure if its big enough to be called a village, any who its so remote there are none to be seen I tried Pokémon Go but no luck.
    I like Cake!

    Everyone, please do not install anything for Android from an apk unless you know exactly where you/the uploader got it from. Stick to known sources(Play Store, Amazon App Store) and if you do sideload do your research. If there's no reasearh, find another source or contact the developer about whatever issue you may have with the official download.

    When I made the complaint Nougat was just released to the new Android Beta Program, it's been half a year and Go fully supports Nougat now.

    Okay, that makes sense, but I found this exe that says it can help me download more RAM to make my desktop run faster. That should be perfectly fine, right?

    All you need to do to make your system run faster is wax your hard drive.
