While we have all been excited about Pokémon GO, a lot of other things are coming in too. And what could be better if that new thing also helps us play Pokémon GO itself! A new app has hit the town named PokeDetector. YEs, the accent is missing right there, but it is as great as it could get. If you are a Pokémon GO player, I am sure you have been frustrated enough times already.
The primary aim of the Pokémon GO app is to catch Pokémons. But while we keep on running around our neighborhood, and even beyond, we face many obstacles. The first and the foremost trouble that we face is battery drainage. While we keep looking at the screen of our smartphones with the hope that there just might be a Pokémon nearby, the battery keeps on going lower. PokeDetector is going to help us for this purpose only!
Do you want to know how? Here’s how. PokeDetector sends you notifications each time you are in a close proximity of some Pokémon. And you need not keep your phone in your hands right in front of your eyes all the time. And it is even compatible with wearable Android devices as well. So you can just keep your phone in your pocket and still get to know when you have Pokémons around you. Now is that not exactly what you have been looking for!
What is PokeDetector?
As I have already said, PokeDetector is an app that sends you notifications each time you are within a certain radius proximity of Pokémons. It helps you detect the Pokémons, hence the name.

This is nothing but a tiny app which works even when the Pokémon GO app is not on. And it is compatible with wearable Android devices. While your phone is in your pocket, you get the notification, if connected that is, right on your wearable device. And it also tells you which Pokémons are nearby.
And it is customizable. You can manually select how frequent the app will search for Pokémons. You can also set in specific Pokémons to look for. When this feature is on, you will only get notifications when those particular Pokémons are nearby.
What makes PokeDetector a must have for all Pokémon GO players?
Yes, it is a must have. It not only saves the battery but makes playing the game much easier as well. Despite the rising popularity of the game, the users have often stated that the developers of the game, Niantic Labs, have left hardly any clues as to where to find virtual creatures. And it is due to this lack in the game, that we have to stay constantly alert with the game right on our screens.
PokeDetector saves us from that trouble. All you need to do is to log in with your account that you use for Pokémon GO. This app runs in the background and sends you the required information.
What does PokeDetector do?
PokeDetector is a little bit more helpful that the Pokémon GO app itself. First of all, and this is the point which can not be emphasized more, it sends you notification even when your smartphone is in your pocket. Thus, it saves a whole lot of battery life. And God knows we need it!
Secondly, as the app assumes your GPS locations, it covers a larger area than the game. The radius is much bigger. IT is almost twice as wide.
Thirdly, it even shows you additional information. When I say ‘additional information’ I mean that it shows you for how long the Pokémon is going to be available there. Something we could not get in the Pokémon GO app. Which player can refuse that many times they have failed to get the Pokémon because it suddenly disappeared? I know I have. And I am sure many of you faced the same situation as well.
And being a Pokémon GO player, I can assure you that it is one of the best companion apps for Pokémon GO. And it is no doubt one of the must-have apps for all those Pokémon collectors and trainers out there.
And, here is how you can get this application to run on your Android devices.
