Top 10 April Fools Day 2014 Pranks

We gather our ten favorite pranks from April Fool’s Day 2014.

The Google Maps app for iOS and Android now has a Pokeball logo beneath the search bar.  Clicking it, and it will show you the locations of Pokemon on Google Maps.  It might be a prank and all, but it’s really, really sophisticated.  You can capture the Pokemon simply by tapping it, and you can check what Pokemon you captured by looking through the Pokedex.

2. Awesome Photobombs:
