Geocaching Love this app...We paid the extra for premium and are pleased we did as there are more options of finding 'treasure ' a great way to get the whole family out doors for fresh air and fun searching for treasure and replacing with new treasure. Def recommend the app itself is easy to navigate. .sometimes have trouble logging a trackable on it and have to go on computer to do so.
Good but Still Lacks Features There are a lot of ways this app makes geocaching easier. I'd certainly recommend it to someone starting out in the sport. But there are a lot of things still missing that could be done in the old paid app, and the website. Can't hardly wait for updates that add them in.
Only worthwhile if premium member After they stopped support on Windows phone, treated myself to a new phone and tried the app. The restricting of higher terrain and difficulty means you pretty much have to upgrade to premium membership. I'm sure this will make groundspeak money, but not sure if it will encourage new members. Might buy a junker old ios device so I can use the old paid app that still works for higher non premium caches
Great app, once upon a time Haven't been geocaching in a while but since I'm traveling I thought I'd find a few caches along the way. What in the holy h@$! Happened to the app I remember and why do I have to pay MORE money, and monthly at that, to see higher rates caches?!? Wasn't the $9.99 I originally paid enough? I get that you're in the business to make money but I don't think this is a great way to go about it. I'll be buying a new portable GPS rather than paying Groundspeak a monthly fee. Sorry, guys.
Giving hiking a purpose I want to get exercise as much as the next person, but it is so incredibly boring to just..... walk. Geocaching gives my walks a goal. A purpose. I now have something to look forward to when stepping out my door. Finding the next cache gives me a confidence boost. Something to drive me that extra few yards. I never know what I will find in the next cache.... or even IF I will find the next one. In short, this app has helped me get cardio better than a stair-stepper and a Nordic Track combined.
Pretty and Poor Looks great but lacks a lot of useful functions which the old app provided. There's not even a setting to tell it i want distances in miles not km! Surprised it has been released in this clearly unfinished state and the updates have not addressed any of the shortcomings. Most of the useful features of the old app are missing, even for premium members.
