Up until now, Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile users have been shut out of the fun, with very little information on whether or not we'll ever get an official app, like Pokémon Go on iPhone enjoys. Thankfully, ST-Apps has managed to port Pokemon Go to UWP (via Reddit), running it as an open source project on Github. This is an early beta test version, so it's missing a lot of Pokemon Go's best features including the game's augmented reality features and 3D models.
Still, if you want to help test the app and contribute to development, you'll need to follow some simple, but advanced steps to get it running on your phone, as it's not available in the Windows 10 Store.
Update: Head to the link below for the most up to date method for installing PoGo-UWP beta:
Note: Since PoGo-UWP is an open-source beta test, expect bugs, crashes, and other issues. You might want to check back on Github in the coming weeks for updates. You can follow the list of known issues right here. We'll also be following the app's development intently, so stay tuned to Windows Central and we'll let you know when there's a new update.
While this solution isn't as ideal as an official app from Niantic, it once again shows how impressive the Windows developer community can be when it comes to bringing us apps and services the platform has historically lacked.
