+mrisaka Posted July 10, 2008 Share Posted July 10, 2008 The iTunes Applications Store for iPhone and iPod Touch is active! Tons of these applications look amazing, and of course my thoughts immediately turned to the inevitable Geocaching app. Hell, maybe I'll make one myself. Or maybe it could be an open source project? Any feature requests? I'm thinking: -Google Maps integration (just like on geocaching.com) to see cache listings, hopefully with an option to download certain maps for offline use (though I don't know how Google would feel about that...) -detailed cache listing pages (with option to download them for offline use) -uploading photos directly from the phone to a cache gallery page -search feature with pocket query level filtering -bookmark lists on the phone -take notes on caches, option to share them with others -trackable items management -use the iPhone's GPS to actually find caches, or at least get close to them -use the iPhone's GPS to plan a route with caches along it I'm also wondering what sorts of licensing, etc. would have to be done with Groundspeak. I assume that some stuff, like the advanced searching, they would want to save for paying members. Maybe paid members get the app for free, and all others have to pay for it? I don't know if Apple has any sort of system in place to accommodate that sort of system though... It could probably be pretty easily tied to a login, same as it is now. Man, I'm excited though!
