Year by Year Filters
I’m well into Geocaching and am really loving the opportunity that this gives to get out and about exercising and visiting some places that I would never had thought to go to.
I would love to see a filter that allows the Geocacher to view the year that the cache was placed by the Cache Owner.
I am really wanting to find some old caches and having the ability to filter out the search area for these older caches and see how well that they have faired and been maintained over the years.
Please bring in a “year hidden filter”....!
Great app, one main winge of mine
I love geocaching with my family and friends. It’s so fun to see and find all the new things.
Today, we found a travel thing that went all the way from Idaho in U.S.A, to the geocache in Hervey Bay Australia. We were on holiday (we live in Australia, f.y.i), so we’re taking it back to around where we live. We also found one in the bush that hasn’t been found since October 2019!! It was very dirty, though. And, we also found one inside a tree and right on top of an ants nest, I got 1 or 2 ant bites from that! There was another in a gap of a tree hanging from a wire! These were super fun to find! My friend and I have a long distance friendship, so we’re trying to see who can find the most geocaches before we see each other again, and I’m getting ready for victory!! Something I do want to add is maybe a bit more to find without premium! Anyway, I definitely recommend, it’s a blast to go geocaching!
Love the app hate being charged twice
This app is great, the game is awesome & it’s a fun family game outdoors however as someone who bought the app years ago for one set price outright then be made to pay annual fees after the makers decided to change their minds on the payment side of things, I got a little annoyed and stopped using it. Like all big companies, they know you will come back as they own the market so they may take profit over their customers but with their monopoly on the market like many companies, there is no other choice than to join the ranks of minions with the annual fees. I wouldn’t have minded if the fees were annual from the beginning. It’s a great game so no issues on that side of it.
