As longtime geocachers and members who place and maintain several caches, we were so disappointed in this new app. The classic app was great! It has been a fun and inexpensive way for us to spend time as a family with our children. The new app requires you to spend more and get a whole lot less! We all loved the souvenirs on the original app to keep track of where we been, however they are missing from the new update. Also, all of the good cache require the premium membership. Disappointing again! We have several cache that we have hidden that are no longer available to others unless they have the premium. Frustrating! We will be looking to see if there are better and less expensive ways to continue this fun hobby. Just bring back the old Edition! Your love of money is going to cost you.
The app is far from an improvement on the classic app! It hasn't added any real extras and is complicated to use! It does the job but much preferred the classic app! Constantly crashing and having to restart the apps between caches! Shame you had to spoil a good thing making regular users who paid for the classic app pay again for a subscription to a much worse product! At least you all made some money though 😉
I had used the old app for years with the one time payment and I loved it. It was so good I no longer had to use my GPS device for hunting. However we was forced to change to this useless new app. Accuracy is off by a huge amount and there is a delay in it so getting close is hard. The old app I would have given 5 stars and don't understand why they would get rid of a great app. This new app is so bad can't think of anything good so can only give it a 1 star.
You need more support for the friends, adding them, deleting them, etc. And specially, you should add features to the ones who already pay for the Geocaching Classic app, I am one of those, I pay for this, and now I have the same features of a free user one.. Few months ago, normal caches are now premium caches. This game has become a business. The good and free caches no more available of you don't have a subscription. So sad, it was a great mundial game. I can't afford paying the subscription. I already pay when the app was a paid one, and at this date, I have the same features as the ones who don't pay anything. Simply unacceptable.
Is this what my $10 went toward? A downgrade? Why should I pay $30 for something I already paid $10 for? You got greedy and not a lot of people are happy. Give us back our old app. You know, the one we already paid for. Smh.
Considering you don't have to be a premium member to access multi, earth, and "advanced" caches online I think it's garbage they're going to try and upsell you on becoming one to use this app. They can keep this app because there are plenty others that allow me to have my caching fun without messing me over
Now you can:
- View geocaches you DNF’d (did not find) on the map & in your lists.
- View Attributes on the cache details page and never be unprepared to climb a tree again.
- Save offline Lists in one tap. You’ll also see a yellow dot on your Lists menu when it’s out-of-date.
- See a new intro to geocaching when creating an account.
- Access the Help Center. But you’re all experts by now, right?
