Pokemon GO Notifications
A Google Chrome extension that provides notifications of pokemon spawning nearby in Pokemon GO.
|Application Type:||Google Chrome Extension|
|Platform:||Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, Chrome OS|
This fun Google Chrome extension was built by myself and my friend, Piotr Romanowski, over the course of a weekend and released with rave reviews and over 7000 downloads in it's first week after release.
Soon after the release of Pokemon GO, web apps started to pop-up allowing users to track where pokemon were in their area using Pokemon GO's not-so-open API. After coming across the most popular Pokemon GO tracker, PokeVision, I inspected their source and found that I could easily use their JSON API to get notifications of nearby Pokemon.
Unfortunately, within a week of releasing Pokemon GO Notifications, the creators of Pokemon GO (Niantic, Inc.) started cracking down on trackers, and PokeVision ceased service. As a result, Pokemon GO Notifications is currently not functional.
