The viral Android game, Pokemon GO has taken over the Internet like a storm. People who tried any games also started playing this game to catch Pokémon in the very world we live in, thanks to a combination of GPS, augmented reality, and dorky-cute graphics. The game is only available for Android & iOS. Features of Pokemon GO are pretty much similar to original Pokemon cartoon series. Catching Pokémon, battling at Gyms, using items, evolving your creatures — with a crazy twist: You’re doing it all in the real world. Unlike any other smartphone app, Pokemon GO updates are not common but bring up major feature updates.
- App name: Pokemon GO
- Latest version: 0.39.1
- Update time: 8th Aug 2016
Pokemon GO Version 0.39.1 Changelog:
This is a relatively minor update, so don’t expect any huge changes this time around. It seems that Version 0.39.1 has just fixed a few minor bugs that have popped up in recent weeks. For example, after Niantic updated the game on Friday, an issue popped up where the Pokemon Go Plus tutorial screen was not loading text properly, displaying “pgp_tip_title,” “pgp_tips_1_text_1,” etc. With Version 0.39.1, this is no longer the case.
Here’s the official change log:
- Version 0.39.1 has just fixed a few minor bugs that have popped up in recent weeks. For example, after Niantic updated the game on Friday, an issue popped up where the Pokemon Go Plus tutorial screen was not loading text properly, displaying “pgp_tip_title,” “pgp_tips_1_text_1,” etc. With Version 0.39.1, this is no longer the case.
- A lot of devices, particularly Android devices, were also having some issues of increased loading times and crashes after updating to Version 0.39.0. Based on anecdotal evidence from trainers, Version 0.39.1 appears to have addressed that, with a lot of users thankfully experiencing fewer crashes and faster loading times since updating.
- Some players were having issues with the camera moving at slow speeds, and that has apparently been addressed by Version 0.39.1.
- Version 0.39.1 comes just a few days after Version 0.39.0, which was a more significant change in the game. That added a whole new feature to the game where players can find out where their Pokemon was caught. However, the information is unfortunately rather vague, as the game pretty much only tells you the city you got the Pokemon in.
- We’re currently testing a variation of the “Nearby Pokémon” feature with a subset of users. During this period you may see some variation in the nearby Pokémon UI.
With this update, the game also introduces a change to the “Nearby Pokémon” box in the lower right of the screen, changing the wording to “Sightings”, along with the graphics behind the Pokémon in your vicinity. While we’re not sure how the new “Sightings” feature works just yet — and how different it is to the original “Nearby — we are exploring it and will update when we know more.
