Nothing short of theft. The old app for geocaching showed all but premium caches without a premium account... As you'd expect. This new app however changes that and no longer lets you see any caches above a 1.5 rating.. Which is ridiculous and could well in fact kill off the activity
I hate this new app so much! It's clunky, full of bugs and workflows are a nightmare. It looks like Groundspeak spent zero time with User Acceptance Testing. Old app was better functionally. Yes, like others, I spent money on the old app and now it's obsolete. I have a lot of caching friends and no one has anything good to say about this new app. Some are talking about "pulling-the-pin" on caching.
Very disappointed. After paying $10 for the old app which was way better then this new one. And now they want to charge you $40/yr for a basic account which use to be free. Only levels under 1.5 are free, that don't leave much. Time to find a new hobby that doesn't cost. Greedy Jerks.
Hate this thing. It doesn't automatically find my location, I have to prompt it every time I try to use it. It loses gps signal. It it's oddly arranged. I will be looking for alternate methods to play. You guys dropped the ball. I guess we had to "pass it to see what was in it...". More like we had to kill what was working with minor errors for something completely different with major issues from the start.
Uninstalled. I was recommended GC by a friend ages ago and after moving into an area with tonnes of parklands around I went ahead an ddownloaded it. Only to find that all those geocache dots on my map are Lv1.5 or above. It is beyond frustrating that I have to manually zoom in and out of the map, with HUNDREDS, of dots to find the THREE measly geocaches I'm allowed access to. $10 I could have paid per year, $40 you've just priced me out of this once-awesome app. Really uncool and seeminly greedy as hell.
I can't do mystery/"difficult" caches without paying monthly/yearly? No thank you, those were the only ones worth doing in the first place. I only used the previous app 1 or 2 times a month at most and it is not worth the new price. I was happy to pay the 9 or 10 dollars for the previous app because I thought I would be able to use it for years. I am not happy. Also the new app adds nothing new/good and the interface is hard to use. I was planning a fun day of geocaching with my boyfriend today before I found out about the new app/changes and now it is ruined 😣.
We updated how geocaches are displayed on the map for improved accessibility and easier identification of different geocache types.
-Cache owners can now submit Owner Maintenance, Disable, and Enable logs for their caches.
-Devices will not go to sleep while navigating to a cache.
-Caches on ignore lists won’t be displayed on the main geocache map and list view.
- Fixed a bug that prevented logs with larger images from posting
