PokéVision is gone, here’s 5 alternatives for Android & iOS scheduleAug 12, 2016 PokéVision was an amazing application that seemed to have sprung up overnight to answer the demands of millions of Pokemon Go players. When creator Yang Liu wrote a passionate letter to Niantic to get them to understand why so many people were using his service, he also revealed that in the short amount of time it was live, it had gathered more than 50 million unique users and 11 million daily active users. That’s a lot of Pokemon hunting. If you’re missing out on PokeVision since the in-game tracker in Pokemon Go is still pretty broken, don’t worry we’ve got you covered. Here are a handful of apps available for Android and iOS that actually work, for the time being. Be aware that some people are reporting permanent bans from Pokemon Go for using some of these tools. It seems as though Niantic is instituting permanent bans for anyone using API calls. You can read more about that here, but I’d use these services with severe caution. Android Google is coming down hard on any Pokemon Go radar apps that pop up, either voluntarily or because Niantic is having them taken down. Either way, in order to use these apps on your phone, you’ll have to enable Unknown Sources in your settings menu before you can install them. PokeRadar PokeRadar sprung up on GitHub and has been actively developed since PokeVision went offline. You can download the .apk and if you’re concerned about security, you can even see the app’s source code. PokeSensor PokeSensor functions mostly how PokeVision worked and the best part is it’s available on both platforms. The app is pretty well designed and seems to be actively maintained as well. You can download the iOS version directly from iTunes, but you’ll have to download the .apk for the Android version from GitHub. PokeAlert PokeAlert doesn’t just let you track Pokemon on a map, it’ll send you notifications on your Android device to let you know when a Pokemon you want is nearby. Since you probably don’t want your phone buzzing every five minutes to tell you about that rattata, there’s also a Pokemon filter available so you can select only the Pokemon you really want to be notified about. iOS PokeRadar PokeRadar is perhaps the best known iOS Pokemon Tracker because it’s at the top of the lists for iTunes every since Pokemon Go has released. It’s still working and still functioning for iOS users, so give it a download if you’re wanting some help in catching them all on your iPhone. Go Radar If you don’t like the way PokeRadar functions, Go Radar might be a bit more to your taste. It seems to be better designed and features Pokemon sihlouettes rather than showing their full sprites from the Gameboy games, so the maps are a bit easier to read.
