・ Log types are now shown in the title bar.
We also streamlined a few things:
・ Additional features have been grouped together in their own menu in the top-right corner.
・ The new “Found it!” button includes a drop-down menu for other log types.

This app makes geocaching so easy (on an iPhone). The "find caches around me" feature is great! The one down side is that it is a little pricey (at least when I got it) if you have an iPod touch, It is a great app to save caches and logs on
Lived the app for 3 years now!
The rating and title says it all
Love this app. We Have been using this app since the day it became available for the iPhone. Lots of fun.
I have a few pocket queries already set up when I log on to my home computer, but am unable to access them when using my iPhone. Any suggestions? Also curious how to add multiple caches to an offline list at once.
My favorite activity and app!!!
Works great. Very intuitive. Wish there was a way to enter waypoints.
Has everything you need to get out there and find those caches.
Great app. Fun to use when traveling through a new town. Easy to use. Enjoy seeing a map of available caches & being able to log caches on the spot.
Dont even look at other apps! This one is hands down the best.
This app works so well I have never shopped around for another! Why would you? This app provides everything you need!!!
I have never before rated an app. This one however, is amazing. It is under priced, and I use it all the time. It is very smoothly designed, and leaves nothing to be desired. Ongoing value at no additional charges. Best $10 I have ever spent.
Friend introduced me to Geocaching, and it's been a great time. This app is well worth the $10 for all the entertainment it brings.
We were introduced to geocaching through this app last year and have begun a new family hobby. $10 was completely worth the price and I've been happy with the updates ever since.
This is so fun and fuels my inner treasure hunter/spy/adventurer it's so fun
This gets us outdoors and having fun as a family. :)
Huge Fan of this game/sport!! So happy I can do it whenever! Def keeping it at 5 stars, but for iPhone on map it would be cooler if it wasn't just a blue dot, instead an arrow. Regardless I use compass but just a heads up! Thanks for this being custom and all and groove on!!
So simple the five year old can use it.
Great app! With a couple if additions it would be fantastic! My wish is that it would have access to the user/member database and profiles like the website. All in all great fun to be had by all.
There is no way to enter a specific gps location and navigate to it. I was liking the app till I came to a cash that is part of a series and gives the location of the next cashes to find. For that much $ I would think the official geocashing app would have an easy way to enter a specific gps point to find. Maybe in the next update hopefully coming soon
Don't understand why I paid $9.99 and still it's just a beginner app. The price is terrible!! :(
Keyboard is old and the whole UI can be slow and glitchy. This app would be worth the price if they paid more attention to what it needs. Months without updates?? I'd also like to see some new features added.. Perhaps sad faces for DNF locations and username tags for logs so threads on caches can be more interactive.
It's so much fun!
The compass could use some improvement. Not sure if its my phone or what but otherwise I really like this app.
I love Geocaching and this app solidifies that for me! Kinda expensive for an app at $10 but well worth it! I don't know how other apps fair up to this one but I am not disappointed
The best geocaching app available!
Love the app, use it almost exclusively. However, I haven't been able to figure out how to see my history of finds, which is my only complaint.
Think it works better than the droid app!
For 10 bucks I would think an app works properly also offline. Since I do most of my geocaching outside my country, I have no wifi except at hotel. It would be nice if offline option included all the descriptions and photos! Sometimes the hint is a spoiler photo and you can't do those offline. All in all, without these options, if you're an offline user like me, I'm not sure it's worth the money.
So much fun! Gets you out in the fresh air! Love it!
Best app on my phone by far
We had a blast today treasure hunting best family day in a long time brought us all together. Can't wait to get more people into this.way worth the 10$
Love this! So much fun, and cheap family fun
I have an iPod touch so I use the app for storing the cache data offline, however the lat/Lon coordinates are nowhere to be found on a caches page. I have found a work around, by going to navigate, then clicking the flag in the top right, then clicking set to cache location, however this is timely and kind of inconvenient. You could easily add an internal menu allowing us to view the coordinates offline, so please do! Other than that, great!
The new operating system and change in maps has greatly limited this app.
Thats ten stars that is what i give
Thanks! This app makes my life so much easier when saving caches I want to find and when out and about finding caches.
Amazing with this last update. So easy to use on iPhone. Has all the bells & whistles. Worth every penny. Keeps getting better and better. Great job!
Even though I don't have an actual gps, my iPod does ok with this app. Wish the accuracy was better though.
This app is super fun. My boys ages 7 and 5 love navigating to find caches.
I absolutely love geocaching! The one big thing I found was that it needs a history of where the trackable have been, maybe even a map to show the route it has taken across the country!
We need another version done just for iPad.
I appreciate the fact that not only is this one of my favorite and most-used apps, but also that it has improved with each release. Some of the stability and memory problems with earlier versions have been fixed, and it seems to benefit from thoughtful ongoing development. Added comments - Dec 2013: I am still using the app with my iPhone 4S and rely on it heavily for routine caching. However seemingly since the iOS 7 update, I’ve been experiencing a problem with GPS and battery use. If I use the app to navigate to a cache using the phone’s GPS, it goes into a high battery drain mode and stays that way, even after the search is ended. If I don’t shut off the phone and reboot, my battery will go down to zero in a relatively short time. This makes it a real problem to use the app to hunt caches for an extended period of time away from home or away from a power source. Interestingly, the abnormal battery drain does not seem to occur if I use the app to view my position on a search map; but if I pick a particular cache and ask to navigate to it, it goes into battery drain mode and seemingly never comes out. Perhaps there is some kind of bug or conflict with the new iOS that is preventing the GPS chip from shutting off when it should? Temporarily deducting one star from my rating due to this issue.
Get off the couch and go on an inexpensive adventure by yourself, with friend or with family!
Works great sometimes but for the last few months its been about 3 miles off. I use it to log about 50% of my finds and it needs a way to change the log dates.
Who needs a waterproof GPS when you have this app, an iPhone, and a ziplock bag?!?! I love it!
Would love a GPS function for directions to the caches.
This is a great worldwide adventure. Highly recommended:)
Love this app
In use this app along with a delorme works good for me
Works great as long as I have a connection
This app is great and has guided me successfully to over 2000 caches. I use it in urban areas and dense forests. I love that you can easily download pocket query's and save cache information to use in areas without cell connection. Thanks!
This is a great app! I have used it successfully without any fails for months now!
This app has change the face of Geocaching without doubt. It has also opened geocaching to many people who could never afford to have both a smart phone and a separate GPS device. Keep up the good work. Nickedemous
I love this app use it all the time. Hopefully a version for the ipad comes along very soon though...
I use it a lot works with no problem. A calendar would be nice to be able to put actual date found if there is not time to do it the same day.
Very good and easy to use. There is one issue I am experiencing with it. My girlfriend and I have an iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S respectfully. When logging a find neither of our app will post the find to Facebook. We are both running IOS6. We checked our settings and they are the same as when the app was posting to Facebook.
Only thing I wish I could do is look up caches a little further out on my routes.
This app works great, it lets you track caches in-app, the compass is pretty accurate, and you can log any found caches on this app
This app really makes caching a fun activity. It's great to find caches nearby. I use the map to get close and I use the compass to home-in on the target.
This is really great and I'm sure many others agree! The only thing I ask for is a way to update(refresh) a whole offline list at once without the tedious effort of going through each and every single cache. It's good to know about new logs, when it was last found, and trackable info. Otherwise, this is perfect!
But crashes often on 4S & 3GS. Would be great to have the option to sort by tb's on app and pc. Crashed on my numerous times today while out caching, while heading to one cache, (.01 miles away) it crashed 5 times! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE FIX!!!!!!!!
App is not connecting to geocaching website, therefore cannot search for, open or log caches
GREAT way to hang out with the family and have a good time WHERE EVER you go!!!!! There's geocaches everywhere!
This is one of our most used apps. If you plan on geocaching this is the app to get.
Best 9.99 ever. Thanks to you I spent under .5 hour installing the app, updating the website, and familiarizing myself with the first search and I'm not advanced. It was fun and successful from the get-go.
Very easy to use and sensible app. We are really enjoying our new hobby and this app. has been instrumental in our learning how to geocache.
Love this app!! Geocaching is so much better with this app!
We're newcomers... App seems sensibly organized to deliver all the descriptions, directions, distances, hints and logs that help us succeed. It is what it claims to be. Does not shortchange supplying information.
App works great just make sure have battery charger for phone.
I use this app nonstop. Works great even without data and cell service if you save it to an offline list. Would like to see a feature to be able to jam in coordinates for multicaches while still in app. Awesome gear.
