    Nothing like profiting off a treasure hunting game built and maintained by the community. Can I get my $10 back from the good version of the app you deleted?

    Paid $10 for the old app but then they disabled it so you have to download the new app with 95% of the features locked behind a $30/year paywall. Scammers. You guys are horrible. Wish Apple would shut you down for the BS you pulled. Oh, and I’ll be updating my review every time you update the app :)
  • Paid once

    I paid a one time fee for this app and now You want me to pay recurring charge. How about I get my &9.99 back since I paid for the app and now can’t use it as intended.

    I can’t login for whatever reason.
  • Make a visit all button for trackables

    Some of us have hundreds of trackables with us that we want to visit to a cache. Please add a visit all button! Or at least a selectable option where we can checkmark each travelbug we have with us so we can visit them with the app easily. Takes so much time on the website.
  • How about adding iPad support?

    It’s not much work to add iPad layout to your app. What’s your excuse?
  • Issues with latest release.

    Many years user of app. New release today and now app pulls up wrong geocache based on the email alert. This same issue resurfaces every few years. Usually dead in the water for a few days till fixed. Temp solution is to take geocache name from email and manually key it into app. But who wants to do that in this age of super technology!
  • Looks the same to me

    As others have said, there are no visible improvments in V6.0 beyond one addition to one menu. I see no sign of the improvements described. This app does have one nice feature (not new). My wife and I geocache under one name. When we find a cache she writes the first draft of the log and I sign the physical log. Then later we alternately edit the e-logs until we are both satisfied and submit. The app makes this very easy. If only it weren't so poorly organized. Go buy Cachly. It is 10 times better in organization, layout, and operation. As far as the fees for membership go, get over it. There are ~75 people in Seattle working their butts off to keep Geocaching going. You want to see disfunction? Wave your magic wand and eliminate them. Your free hobby would crash in no time.
  • Still crashes

    This app has almost no point in existing. THAT SEEMS HARSH!...let me explain. This gives quick easy access for geo caching if you have a cell signal, with the fact that the GUI is easy to use. HOwEVER! It restricts access to certain ones based on difficulty so you can't access it regardless. Well you can use a desktop(laptop) browser to get coordinates and directly put it into the google maps app on your phone. Rendering the restriction an annoyance. Better yet if the cache is above a certain difficulty and you can't access it on the app, you can go into your phones' browser and access the "desktop" version of the website, rendering the restrictions of this app sort of useless. However you must now use the desktop gui with awkward touch controls if you're willing to deal with that, if not, see the first tip. The app makes it easy for people that want a brisk walk to an easy adventure, but makes a heavy handed gesture that it restricts access to certain ones behind that membership paywall. If the cache is out of cell signal, insert coordinates to your $100+ gps device, OR download offline maps.(which is a function of this app if you pay the membership, worth paying for, (it makes it easier to do the activity)) This app makes the less difficult ones quick and easy to access, log and all that fun stuff, updating information on the fly, with a sleek GUI that works well and is simple to use. VERY COOL! However it restricts access to certain ones that just, in the end, makes the process just as slow as without the app. So if your out with your friends at say dq or something and your like"hey lets do this!" as a spur of the moment decision, it makes it very useful, unless its a difficult geocache which just makes it cumbersome and potentially keeping people away from doing so on purpose, unless you pay for the membership. If you plan ahead you can bypass the app altogether, rendering the app USELESS. It's a very cool idea, being able speed up that process, but just has an elephant in it's room. If anything the membership should be the way it is with the sending automatically to garmin, pocket queries, lists, premium caches and all that because thats worth paying for the membership. Purposefully making it harder for you to do what the app wants you to do is unintuitive, heavy handed and backwards, and is easily bypassed by simply not using the app. I want to like it because it has everything going for it, but this, in the end, keeps the app unopened, and my phone in my pocket. Because if your actively geo caching and planning ahead, there is no more use for the app unless the cache difficulty is less than two stars. So around town thats out in the open, cool but anything more and it stays in the pocket because it isn't a reason to pay for the membership and just ends up NOT BEING USED.
