I've seen a few tweets in the last week or so from users being banned by Niantic from using Pokemon Go. The reason? Due to their physical disabilities, they used "cheating" apps to be able to take part in the game. Indeed, Pokemon Go isn't terribly accessible in its current format to a lot of players.

Niantic's behaviour seems particularly harsh when you consider that no one can win at Pokemon Go. In its current format, gyms notwithstanding, playing the game can only really done for your own enjoyment and sense of personal achievement. 

Maybe Niantic should spend more time listening to its users and making the game more accessible, and less time on penalizing users and shutting down helpful apps.
