Re: Pokemon GO (IOS/Android)

Okay, this is crazy, but we're going to hold a Public Pokéstop Party on Thursday at work. We're throwing our doors open, having free pizza, and setting up lures on our three Pokéstops. We have an electronic sign outside on a pretty busy intersection so we're going to advertise it there and on Facebook. Excited to see what happens.

Sounds fun, what type of environment do you work in?

Re: Pokemon GO (IOS/Android)

I saw a kid walking in the grass median of the freeway this morning with his phone out --- he MUST have been looking for a Pokemon

Hope whoever organized this has a permit. There was one here in the Orlando over the weekend with a couple thousand people, and the cops shut it down.

Re: Pokemon GO (IOS/Android)

Yesterday's update was some improvement. I don't have to login every time it crashes, but I still get a few lockups, especially when I do the battery saver mode, when I turn my phone back upright, the screen shows but I can't move anything. But restarting also feels a little quicker.

We live right by a pretty big park, and somebody set a lure last night so we all went over again and there were tons of people of all ages playing.

Of course, I can't play at work, but I stopped for gas this morning on the way in and started it up to see if there was anything and out of nowhere was a 233 Exeggcute, very pleased to see that.

The closest Pokemon gym in my area is at a dive bar located on a rural highway. Great place for kids to visit!

A lot of the Pokestops here are Breweries and Brew-Pubs, they're doing daily specials as part of it. I guess they can pay to distribute things, which is cool. I cleaned out the local movie theater.

If I owned a business with a Pokestop -- especially a bar or someplace like that --I'd keep a lure on my Pokestop constantly while I was open for as long as this game is hot. Lures are somewhere in the neighborhood of $1.50/hr if you buy in bulk -- if you bring in even one customer you wouldn't have, you've paid for the lure and then some.

You're making a tragic mishap in assuming they'd be paying customers! I play the game myself, so I'm not looking down on fans, but most tend to just mindlessly wander around.
