However, hybridization in mobile apps is something rare. Well, to take mobile apps to the next level we can now see intermixing of functionalities in order to create a comprehensive platform that takes care of not just one of needs.

Adopting augmented reality
Pokémon Go has officially been credited as the first official AR; although we have few apps that are gaining credence such as McGonigal’s I Love Bees that aims to market Microsoft’s XBox game Halo. Along with this, we have several “Gamified” apps that have been quite successful such as Foursquare that has been getting criticism among lot of communities for offering inappropriate meaningful rewards and other stuff.
We can say that the Pokemon Go, which is a AR game, is sheerly inspired by the Pokemon video games which is all about exploring and collecting which also deliver an optimistic social message which is mixed with storylines.
