About this app

Join the world’s largest community of creative hiders and outdoor seekers with the official Geocaching® app. With over 3 million cleverly hidden geocache containers worldwide, you can join an active community of outdoor explorers creating, sharing and playing the game of geocaching all around you. Geocaches are created and shared by people like you, who have a passion for hiding treasure, seeking adventure, and sharing the most meaningful and creative hiding spots all over the world. 
 
Whether you are traveling to a new city, a family out on a neighborhood walk, or a group of friends who know how to appreciate a good scavenger hunt, geocaching is easy enough for anyone to get started. Browse our map to discover hidden cache locations nearby — no matter what city or country you are in. Start by navigating using GPS-enabled directions to within 30 feet of the cache — then your real search begins. Geocaches are hidden out of sight, often disguised, to only be found by the people who are trying to find them.
 
Geocaches come in all shapes, sizes, and types — and some may be more cleverly deceptive than you can even imagine. Cache owners will always include a log book for you to sign to record your successful find. Larger containers might also include some treasures to be traded or moved to other cache locations — like with trackable tags, personal keepsakes, and the occasional geocoin hoping to be passed on to the next adventurer. Once you are done with the container, simply place it back exactly as you found it for the next explorer to discover.
 
With a constantly growing community of geocachers there is no limit to how you can get in on the fun. You can play as a family in your neighborhood and parks, add some cache seeking to your jogging or fitness routine, or challenge yourself with some all-terrain caches on a hike near your favorite trails. Use the map to find local events held by the community around the world to learn the best tips and tricks for finding caches and the impact this global game has had on their lives. If you’re lucky enough, they may even share some of the TOTT (tools of the trade!) with you to make sure no treasure gets left behind on your search.

After two years of updates, this app still has issues. I'm a premium member and I use the map that's supposed to be available offline. However, when I don't have cell service the map doesn't load. Since this is an offline map, it should be the first thing that loads. Very disappointing for the amount this subscription costs. The app also doesn't load the pictures that are in the description.

Overall I love geocaching! I used to do it with my mom as a kid and then introduced my partner to it last year. The app does have several minor bugs and glitches like the smiley not showing up on the map, photos not uploading with the log, our finds disappearing from the map, and photos being taken sideways (though I've mostly solved that one if I take the photo with my phone sideways). It's a bit annoying, but not enough to fully take away from the experience of the game!

I really want to love this app. I love the premise but there are still just so many glitches. Half the time when I click on a premium cachbit says it can't connect to the store. Doesn't matter if I'm at home connected to wifi. The other half if the time i have to open the app 5-6 time just to get the map screen usable. Most if the time it comes up frozen. Please fix this!!!! Will definitely write a new review if changed. But right now I'm paying 30 a year for an error screen.
