Ratings and Reviews
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.
Developer Response ,
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.
Paid App Requires A Paid Subscription
Geocaching seems fun and interesting until you realize all the readily accessible means of accessing the hobby require paid subscription. I was hoping this app having a cost out of the gait wouldn’t be like the others but it is unfortunately worse.
The base and free geocaching app gives information on all basic caches with higher difficulty tiers only showing the location unless you pay the subscription. Cachly only gives basic information and the location of a cache. You can request the same information geocaching gives three times every 24 hours. The one benefit is there are some caches which geocaching does not show, though some that geocaching shows are not visible here meaning that slim benefit is essentially nonexistent.
Why in the world would anyone pay for this app if they could get more usage out of a free one?
I’m hoping I can get my money back simply out of principle of not paying a developer for this nonsense.
