The catch of Pokemon Go, the augmented reality app taking the world by storm, is that it requires its users to walk around their cities in order to catch Pokemon -- that is, until PokeWalk came along. The new app is a cross between Uber, dog-walking and hiring someone to write a college exam.

For Pokemon Go users unwilling to take the literal next step and walk around their environment, PokeWalk has a staff of professional walkers who will come to the user, take their phone for a walk of two, five or ten kilometers and return it with more Pokemon than before.

PokeWalk walkers carry portable chargers to guarantee that the phones they take never run out of battery and if they don't reach the requested distance, the service is free.
