Sometimes the tools provided by the Developers of a game isn’t quite enough, which is why for some games, developers have allowed other gamers to create additional features themselves such as mods and addons. In the case of Pokemon GO, we’re seeing a couple of third-party Apps such as Poke Radar.
However it seems that apps like Poke Radar aren’t exactly sitting too well with Niantic Labs, the developers of Pokemon GO, and during an interview with Forbes, the company’s CEO John Hanke hinted that in the future, the developers might start cracking down on these apps by somehow making them stop working.
When asked about how he felt about such apps, Hanke said, “Yeah, I don’t really like that. Not a fan. We have priorities right now but they might find in the future that those things may not work. People are only hurting themselves because it takes some fun out of the game. People are hacking around trying to take data out of our system and that’s against our terms of service.”
