A new app is taking the world by storm.
When Windows Central contacted the Niantic for a Windows edition of Pokemon Go, it replied that they do not have any information to share on Windows at this time.
Baby, Pokemon first! I'll gladly take the couch in the living room tonight!
The app's support page claimed that it had "recently discovered" the app erroneously requests full access to Google accounts at the start of the account creation process on iOS for iPhones and iPads, and that once they became aware of the error, began working on a client side fix to ensure access was reduced to basic.
According to Superdata Research, Pokemon Go has already made upwards of $14 million dollars for the Niantic, the company that created it. Nintendo, The Pokemon Company and Alphabet (the company that owns Google) are all big investors in the game.

Nintendo's newest mobile game, Pokemon Go has caused sensation and some injuries to its players.
"I am concerned", the Minnesota politician wrote, "about the extent to which Niantic may be unnecessarily collecting, using, and sharing a wide range of users' personal information without their appropriate consent..."
Even more impressive? The game isn't even available in most countries yet. A total of 5.61% of US Android users has the game on their phones.
However, initial fears that the game could read players' emails and documents in Google Drive were dismissed after Google said that the "full account access" that Pokémon Go requires does not extend to accessing inboxes and other private information.
