5 features we want in Pokemon Go

Unexpectedly massive smash hit Pokémon Go has made its European debut - arriving in Germany as part of a Europe-wide rollout, which suggests a wider expansion to other European countries over the coming days.

The game officially arrived in the United Kingdom today (Thursday) and can be downloaded from the iOS App Store and Google Play for Android.

Pokemon GO is now the most trending mobile game on Android and iOS as millions of players are playing it as we speak. Perhaps now that the app is finally available in most of the major western regions, Niantic will start focusing its attention on releasing it in the Asian region.

AFP journalists were able to download the game from Apple's iTunes store and Google's Play store in Berlin. But people in the United Kingdom keen to get their hands on a copy of the game, which is free to download and has some paid-for features, can still do so.

Franken, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Privacy and Technology Subcommittee, wrote a letter to John Hanke, CEO of Niantic Labs, requesting information about Pokemon Go, the app that is the hottest thing since, well, Pokemons.

And because the app is free, all you've got to do is follow the links and click install.

A - Update your Pokemon Go app on iPhone to the latest version 1.0.1.
