I’m obsessed !

When introduced to Geocaching roughly a year ago I took a look at the app and found myself a little confused so I dismissed it. Roughly 6 months later it was mentioned again and so I did my research and then downloaded the app again, after finding my first cache (with a packet of beetroot seeds!) I started to enjoy it! Everywhere I went I checked the app and snagged the caches nearby! Now I’m obsessed! I’m keeping fit by walking and collecting the caches as I go! I recommend it to anyone! A fun experience that keeps you fit and gets your brain working trying to work out hints and all! It’s absolutely fantastic! What an enjoyment!

Seriously flawed!

I've been caching for years with 2700 finds, all made with the old paid Geocaching app. After a few months away from the hobby I came back to discover the old app disabled and this app as the replacement. Some things are better on the new app and some are better on the old app. But a few problems with the new app are really annoying me. The first is the maps - The old open cycle maps had red footpaths on a green background and showed contour lines. The new offline maps have yellow footpaths on a grey background which are basically impossible to see. We also lost the contour lines. The other problem is the zoom and direction of the map. When you get close to the cache the map won't let you zoom in for those last few metres – it constantly zooms back out again. And the option to have the map rotate in real time is not persistent so every time you do anything on the map the option is lost and it goes back to North at the top. Basically this makes following the map to the cache a total pain. The option to zoom so that the navigation path fills the screen has also been lost - that was the option I used the most on the old app. Please fix these problems!!!!! ☹️☹️☹️

It's ok to get you started but needs lots of improvements

I've not been geocaching for over 5 years and back then there was no app or I wasn't aware of one. However this app is good to get you started, I understand a lot of people's complaints regarding comparisons to the old app. I personally would like to see a more social media side to it, the ability to look at other peoples profiles, and see where they've been and what they've found. Also on the travel bug items wouldn't it be great if we could see on the map the route they'd taken? Lastly I do find it frustrating that throughout the app there's no links to different sections like when another user quotes a cache location you can't click on that information to take you to that listing


The app has updated and is more user friendly however there's still some features I'd like to see like accessing 'trackable' cache info from the phone app.
