Niantic's New API for Pokemon Go Cracked
Last October 8, 2016, Niantic changed the API (Application Programming Interface) of Pokemon Go rendering all scanners, bots and other third party application accessing their system completely disabled.
Think of that API as the access point of all programs in accessing the database and programming algorithm of Pokemon Go. This access point allowed other programmers in creating apps that access that database, ranging from IV calculator, to nearby Pokemon scanners and bots.
Due to the volume of third party apps accessing the servers of Niantic, down times and server side issues occurred. That's why Niantic changed their API so that these applications cannot access the server anymore. But after almost a week, Developers cracked the new API by reverse engineering (think of it as retracing the steps from the app back to the server) the source codes and finally gain access to the new API.
We should be running again by friday/saturday. Testing everything— FastPokeMap Official (@FastPokeMapCom) October 12, 2016
Expect the return of those third party apps soon so that lazy players and cheaters can enjoy the game again.
