How to evolve new Pokemon GO Evee?

To evolve the new Umbreon and Espeon that arrived with the new Pokemon Go update, name them to Tamao and Sakura before you evolve them. 

Unfortunately, the name trick only works once. I have not tried this but I have read that after the first evolution you will need to walk your Evee for 10K, obtain two candy and then evolve your Evee at night for Umbreon or during the day for Expeon. Add a comment if you have success with this method.

Where to get Pokemon GO special items?

Error running the command ionic build android after adding the Local Notification plugin

After adding the Local Notification plugin to my ionic project running the ionic build android command would result in the following error: Multiple dex files define. The error appears to be due to the fact that the android-support-v4.jar is being included twice. To fix the problem I delete the android-support-v4.jar file in the platforms/android/libs directory.

Error running command ionic run android

I was getting the following error when running the ionic run android command:

ERROR: Failed to launch application on device: ERROR: Failed to install apk to device: pkg: /data/local/tmp/android-debug.apk


I had to uninstall the production version of the app to get it to deploy the development version.
