Ratings and Reviews
Not disappointed any longer
Updated: Aug 2017:
I must say this app has improved big time! Below is my previous review from last year which indicated how bad the app was. Not any longer. In fact it is very much better than the old one that we had to pay for. Now I'm not using my hand held GPS because this app has become so much easier to use.
~ how lists work. Much easier than creating a pocket query.
~ the ability to turn off the "Close to cache warning."
~ the ability to rotate maps to the direction I am walking.
~ how the caches show as I move the map to another area.
~ that it now shows those pesky DNF's that I have to return to.
Keep up the great work.
Need I say more. I too am frustrated. Please support the old app until the new one is as good. This is NOT a good app yet. Full of bugs and poorly laid out. It crashes when using pocket queries, and is jerky when using it.
Groundspeak, don't turn your backs on us. Keep the old app available. I'd hate to show a newbie this new app as the only alternative. Groundspeak, I thought you were better than this. Please reconsider.
Why block out some caches?
For some reason they block out some caches so you need to be. Paid member now
So the weather in Southern Ontario is finally nice. I decided to open this app up for the first time this year and do some neighbourhood geocaching and lo and behold...I’m behind a paywall now. That’s strange because I paid $10 for this app years ago. Is it even worth your time now? I open up my map and I’m surrounded by caches that can only be accessed with a premium account...all year round (like I’m going to go geocaching in f-cking February or between November to April for that matter...was any thought put into this?). This is beyond poor decision making...deleted the app after this discovery.
