pokemon-go-data-usage-screenIf you’re one of the millions of people roaming the streets playing Pokemon Go on your smartphone…first of all don’t forget to look up and watch where you’re walking (and don’t play while driving)…and secondly you may like to make sure the game won’t blow out your monthly data allowance.

While the App is great at getting people out and about it’s important to know that it’s also continually downloading data in the background…as much as 20 megabytes an hour or 50 megabytes a day according to some users….which isn’t great if you only have a 1 or 2 gig of monthly mobile data.   Keep an eye on your data usage and check in with your mobile provider if you need to.  Happy Pokemon hunting.
