Project Description

Sonar is an Android app that displays all the Pokemon surrounding a given location. It uses some clever workarounds to retrieve the Pokemon information from their servers, this data is usually restricted to the PokemonGo app but was intercepted for this app.

Features:

  • Scan 2km around a point
  • Change location, search using the Places API
  • Store logins
  • Push notifications and Filters

A big selling point of this app was the visualisation of the searching algorithm, I created a hexagon grid around the users location, this grid comprised of overlapping rings expanding outwards, comprising of 600~ points. This can be seen as a blue circle spiralling out from the start point.

Catchin’ em all made easier!
Have been using this for a few days and it is awesome.
Anthony Ormond
Very good!
If it could scan a bigger area in lesser time would be even better, but still the best option now that pokevision is off, and i tried a lot of apps already
