Pokémon GO Breaks App Store Record

Developer Niantic Labs’s massively popular Pokémon GO has broken the App Store’s record for most downloaded app in a single week ever, Apple confirmed.

The specific number of downloads hasn’t been revealed, nor has the amount of money players have been spending on in-app purchases, but it’s still further validation that Pokémon GO is a ridiculously popular game.

Given the ubiquity of smartphones and the popularity of Pokémon GO thus far, it wouldn’t be surprising to hear someday soon that the game has become the most popular game of all-time.
