Clearly Pinoys fans are not the only ones who are excited for the Philippine release of the Pokemon Go. Even big tech companies like Globe Telecom and Smart Communications are anticipating the official roll out too. Today at a special event, Globe Telecom officially launched their newest data-monitoring app called Switch that comes with a lot of freebies, one of those being free access to Pokemon Go once locally available.
Globe announced that those who will download and use the Switch App will enjoy free access to Pokemon Go (when it becomes available here in the Philippines) for 7 days. Pokemon Go, to the uninitiated, requires data connection to fully function. But wait, there is actually more. Globe even provided more details on freebies this new app will come with through their Instagram post.
According to the telco, Globe Switch users will also have free 3GB of access to about 50 apps plus if they are one of the first 500,000 users to download the app now from Google Play, they will also get additional free 500MB. That's in addition to the free Pokemon Go promo.
What is this Globe Switch?
As per its description at Google Play Store, Switch is a Globe-exclusive store that brings you mobile internet access to the most popular apps at the most affordable prices available. Useful control features keep you informed of your mobile internet usage, preventing unwanted charges, so you have full control of your budget.
Well this is an amazing offer coming from Globe, so if you want to take advantage of this and you are an Android user, you can now head to this page and download the Globe Switch app as well as get more details about this new service from Globe.
As for the Pokemon Go Philippine release, no one actually knows when this game is going to be available here in the country. All information that we can find in the internet are merely speculations as the game developer Niantic Labs is very silent on providing exact details. One of the most popular guesses is that the release is going to be either later this month or sometime in August.
Whenever that is, we will definitely know almost immediately, for now I suggest you try to learn more information about playing Poekemon Go while waiting. You may also want to check out one of my Pokemon Go-related posts titled "Here'sMy Pokemon Go Starter Pack and Tips."
