When Niantic removed the 3-step tracking feature from Pokemon GO a week or so ago, I think we all assumed that this was a sign that their developers were working to fix it quickly and potentially re-issue the feature with the next major update. Today, a decent sized update arrived, but all we got was some damn grass.
Look at this.
The rest of the update includes a dialog to remind you to stop driving and playing Pokemon GO, but will let you indicate that you aren’t driving to keep on catching. The update also fixes an XP bonus issue on ball throws and gives trainers an opportunity to change their name a single time.
