PokeDetector

So you’re in polite company who understand your obsession with Pokemon Go, but after a while start getting a bit frustrated with your constant checking of your phone to see if any Pokemon are near by – What do you do? You install PokeDetector, that’s what!

PokeDetector is a great little companion app to PokemonGo that gives you real time alerts on your Android Wear device as to the proximity of wild Pokemon near your location. In fact, when you open the app on your device it shows you an overlay on a GPS map interface exactly where you can find them. Great news for those of you who want to catch them all and keep your friends in the process.

The app was not found in the store. 🙁

Will you be checking out PokeDetector on your Android Wear?

But what’s it like on your battery life?

It doesn’t seem to have a detrimental effect on the phone battery
My Moto 360 is dying about 30 mins earlier each day… but I’m home by then so I don’t care. 😀

The reason it doesn’t effect battery life much is that it isn’t an Android Wear app. Its just an app that creates notifications and because notifications are shown on Android Wear watches, this gets shown.
