Using Poke Radar for GO is extremely simple. You can view all of the nearby poke's in your area that have been discovered by your self and other players on the map, along with the times of day they were found.
If you're trying to find a specific poke's location, you can quickly use the "Filter" feature to find the nearest one.
Since Poke Radar for GO is driven by it's community and does not make use of the GO API, it's possible that there may not yet be poke locations in your area when you first download the app. If this is the case, you can go out and mark the locations of poke's you've found to help other players in your area. When others view the location of the poke locations you've marked, your trainer name will also be associated to aid your local trainer reputation. Everyone's gotta catch'em all - so why not work together?
All poke location submissions have the ability to be "Upvoted" or "Downvoted" by others. If a submission receives too many "Downvotes" it will be automatically removed from the map. Highly "Upvoted" locations will receive display priority on the map.
Poke Radar for GO is in no way affiliate with or endorsed by the Pokemon brand, Niantic or Nintendo. This app has been built by fans, for fans who love the game and wanted to create this separate assistant app to support it's community.
