The beloved world of Pokémon and the world in which we currently stand have finally merged into one. When you step out the front door, keep an eye out for these adorable creatures in more than just tall grass.

This groundbreaking augmented reality app integrates the phone’s GPS to let loose Pokémon into the wilds of your town, city, country, and across the globe!

As you go about your day, Pikachu, Horsea, and even the rare Mewtwo may pop out on the GPS map. Luckily the gracious Professor Willow has supplied you with your first poké balls, so start slinging them. If you run out, head over to a "Pokéstop" and restock. Set out on your destiny, to be a REAL Pokémon Master!

▲ While strolling down your daily route, wild Pokémon will appear on your current, real world location!

▲ Gaze through the phone's camera and marvel as the world of Pokémon comes to life.

▲ Going beyond simply capturing Pokémon, you can also train them with "Stardust" and "Candy".

There is no Team Rocket here. Instead, there are three other awesome teams to choose from. Will you create a poké-alliance with friends on “Team Valor”, with coworkers on “Team Mystic”, or zap into “Team Instinct” with your family? Conquer the Gym located at your actual public library or firehouse (public facilities) with your team's combined powered-up Pokémon. "Pokéstops" will have potions and revives to help you achieve this feat.

As you continue your quest to “catch’em all”, make sure to give your Pokémon “Candy” and “Stardust” to increase their strength and evolve them! The extraordinary world of Pokémon has finally been made into a reality, which you can enjoy on your next quest out of the house. Just remember, if a Jigglypuff starts singing to you, do NOT fall asleep!

Garfield may not be known as being one of the most active cats in town, but if even he can manage to put one paw in-front of another, surely your kids can too. This loveable feline is on a mission to combine exercise with technology using this fitness tracking app!

Simply set walking/jogging goals for your kids by placing a photo of a treat next to a time period. If your kids successfully achieve it, a little present icon appears next to the picture. Classic comic strips also appear on-screen to give your child a well-deserved chuckle. Stats are automatically recorded using your GPS to give you an idea of how active your kids are, organized by day and week. Seeing your children's positive results may even persuade you to put that last slice of lasagna down, and get your jog on too!

▲ Exercise with Garfield as you both stride towards the goal in the round picture. A yellow ring will appear around it to show how close you are to achieving it!

▲ Personalize the goals set by taking or uploading a picture. The present icon indicates it has been accomplished!

▲ Nothing is too cool for this cat. Unlock new clothes to jog in style.

If you subscribe, you can gain access to even more features! These include coaching objectives and fitness reports sent right to your email. Always remember, no matter how much you exercise, you must make time to look great. Use coins to build up Garfield's style by purchasing them from a number of outfits available in the store.

Show that there is more to life than eating, sleeping, snoozing, napping, and lasagna. Inspire fitness with this app - after all, a healthy body can create a healthy mind, just ask Garfield.

The ways of the force can’t seem to trample the efforts of enemies – factions controlled by the Sith Lord are well on their way to destroying your turrets. The only way to survive their hordes is to annihilate their base first by deploying an army of your own. Create a robust collection of your own heroes to gain victory!

Control Luke Skywalker on the field by tapping on a land patch once to make him move, or twice to make him sprint. Tap on an enemy unit so Luke can attack them. Tap on his Leader’s skill to unleash a deadly attack. But don’t get cocky – you will have to wait for the skill to cool down before you can use it again. Protect your Ally Defense Turrets – they are your primary machine fighters that protect your Shield Generator.

▲ Drag and drop your unit cards to a strategic position before the enemy so you can penetrate their base.

▲ Help Luke Skywalker succeed in the first few levels of the game - doing so will help you unlock the other icons.

▲ Gauge your battle performance by taking the time to look at your card deck. Team up with other players to win more battles!

There is a guild system that you can take advantage of – it is an easier method for finding potential teammates and joining them in future battles. On the other hand, training battles are made available so you can test out strategies and deck combinations. After you win a battle, you will automatically receive a bonus card deck which you can immediately put to use for your next game.

Put your skills to the test by coming up with the most lethal strategy combinations you can think of – assemble custom decks which feature special heroes and upgrade all army units to become victorious in your quest for intergalactic dominance!
