Standalone app for Niantic Social.
Reason: To Chat with explorers without opening the game.
Niantic Social should complement the game and not take over fully the game when playing.
Adding onto this, it would be nice if there was a way to access Niantic Social via PC. Would come in handy for groups while planning OPS, among other things.
@Ferrothorn88 I think a website is planned: https://niantic-social.nianticlabs.com already looks pretty, but i was not able to sign in.
I tried right now and couldn't sign in or up.
Personally, I'd agree with this just for the ease of using it between products.
