Pokemon Go is a massive success for Nintendo: its stock is up nearly 50% since the release of Pokemon Go last week (including a 36% jump yesterday).

As of one week, five million installs have been recorded on just the Android platform, which catapulted it into the fastest mobile game ever in terms of taking the number one revenue spot - in other words, people are actually spending money on the microtransactions, which is good news for Niantic.

In addition, players all over the United States are running around like a bunch of insane people avid explorers looking for Pokemon.

Some Windows Phone users are really sad seeing all their friends get excited about Pokémon Go while the Windows app is nowhere to be seen.
