    I'm using an app called caffeine on android. You can set it to never turn off the screen if aspecified app is in the foreground.

    The only issue I've had is with Facebook messenger and their pop up bubbles, as they then become the 'active' app and ends up timing out the screen.

    Can't help if you're on ios unfortunately.

    ...annnd an Eevee just across the road from my house. I just walk to the front when something appears one footstep away.

    Also, power usage (at a gym with a PokeStop next to it, Casey Gardens at the Spiral garden with the seats all around the circumference), one hour battling the gym owner, lure on PokeStop so constant refreshing.

    People are going to die playing this game. Don't know if these articles are fake or not, but I wouldn't be surprised if we see some dead people because of pokemon

    Until proven otherwise, this is a hoax. This is the 1 and only outlet that has reported this issue, and something this big would have made headlines, even at least by local news sources.

    Google Maps

    I'm starting to update what I can here on Google Maps. If there are others (besides using the Ingress maps for portals), let me know.

    No need to add layers. Just add a marker for whether it is a PokeStop or a Gym. I've added details like seating/shelter on a few points in the comments section.

    That's not beta. It's production. So yes it is out of beta.
