So Much Better Than Any other Geocaching app
I love this app. I even enjoyed the latest update, version 6.0 A couple years back, I resisted using Cachly but was forced to learn it after Geosphere was no longer supported. My husband trying to get me to use Cachly but I kept both applications until I could learn to use Cachly. There are so many features that it took me a bit of time to learn to use the new app. I loved that when I asked a question of support they answered immediately. I also like that there are searchable answers online. I also like that they have a Facebook group that posts questions and get answers from the developer, Nik Hubbard, as well as other people assign to help cachers get the most from the app. I thought I was an expert at Cachly but still discover new features every day. This Geocache app is intuitive, stores information when we have a bad signal, has amazing sorting capacity so I can look for Geocaches by favorites, or distance or 100 other things. We use Cachly to plan our trips. We just came back in February from a 10 state geocaching trip and the trip would not have been half as much fun had we not had this app. I wrote a review a year ago when I first started using Cachly. This is my third revision of that review and if I could give it six stars I would.

Thanks! Let me know how I can make it as good and better than Geosphere! 😀
Splendid app with developer who cares
Cachly 6 update to review: State restore is awesome! Everything else continues to be excellent. Cachly is THE iOS geocaching app.
Cachly is my go-to app for geocaching. It just works. More importantly, the developer listens to users and does what he can to make the app even easier to use. In the most recent version, he added premium offline maps that are even more detailed and quicker to load. They provide maps in low and no service areas and don’t require data access. I’ve been using the previous offline maps even when not geocaching (Dinosaur National Park) to identify terrain features. Offline lists help us organize our caching trips. Log templates allow you to customize your logs based on log type. And in the latest version, nearby caches are shown while navigating to a cache. That means you don’t walk past a cache on the way to another. And those are just some of the features. It’s a wonderfully well-featured app. Every iPhone geocacher should use it.
Had to work out some kinks
Have many friends who swear by this, and I can certainly see it’s greatness in potential, but since buying it yesterday it has done nothing but glitch and refuses to change settings (ie ‘hide/exclude finds’) and repeatedly hasn’t been loading caches onto the map on startup. Settings are very detailed, but not all together in one spot, so it’s been a bit frustrating to try to backtrack my steps checking to see if I somehow set something wrong. Sometimes it shows caches, sometimes it doesn’t, and glitched where it kept showing me my finds no matter what I chose.
A service rep was very prompt in trying to reach out and offer help, which I appreciate. Although I still couldn’t figure out what went wrong, I finally just reset everything and it seems to be showing the caches properly, but I’m leery of making any custom changes now in case it glitches something.
The map zooms in closer than on the official Geocaching app, and sometimes the navigation arrow is more accurate, so I’m just going to use it when I’m searching and want to double check.
Developer Response ,
We have never had reports of this issue, but we are more than happy to help. Have you made sure to enable filtering? You can change the options but you must also enable it for it to take affect. Caches load for your location by default but can be turned off in Settings, do you know if you turned that option off? Please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org and I will personally respond and help you with any issue. Thanks!
