Do you know why Pokemon Go was created? Here are five reasons why you have this app on your phone.
Reason #1. Obesity.
Lately, Sergey Brin became an active participant in programs that are aimed to improve the quality of life. As you know obesity is a huge problem of western civilization. Take a look at the graph below. Pokemon Go was released in those countries where the obesity rate is the highest.
Luckily for all those couch potatoes Pokemon Go became an impulse, that made them get out of their comfort zone and get a walk.
Reason #2. Total Surveillance.
In 2009 Google together with NSA made an agreement thus gave an access to user data located on Google's servers.
Google’s Sergey Brin is just one of hundreds of CEOs who have been brought into the NSA’s circle of secrecy. Starting in 2008, the agency began offering executives temporary security clearances, some good for only one day, so they could sit in on classified threat briefings.
So, after millions of cameras and GPS trackers were activated, and so much data has been shared by Pokemon Go users...who ever will talk about privacy online?
Due to the game's massive popularity — with an estimated 7.5 million downloads — some players chose to circumvent the official sign-up on the (overloaded) Pokemon Trainer Club website and joined via their Google accounts instead. However, due to a coding glitch, doing so on an iOS device results in giving the app "full access" to the gamer's account, meaning "the application can see and modify all information" contained therein.

Reason #3. The Loot.
Here's a list of top earning apps of 2015, that's funny but none of these was even close to the revenue Pokemon Go has daily...$1.6Mln...that's about $1.1K per minute.
Reason #4. They Wanted to Grab the New Niche.
I would like to explain this point using the template of the jokes familiar to everyone of us 🙂
In just a few days Pokemon Go mobilized more people that Fitbit for the whole time of its existence.

Reason #5. They Wanted to Create a Community.
And they did it! Thousands of people are gathering in the parks, squares, all around the US to catch pokemons. This sounds silly and funny but is really happens. Look at these happy and inspired faces.
