First thing that happened after the installation: Force close. 4 times in a row. :(

 

5th time, splash screen opens, main menu opens. I click "offline lists" - force close. :(

 

Could I send a log file from my phone to someone? I've got alogcat installed.

What device do you use? What OS version? Did this happen before you updated too? Thanks.

I have downloaded V2.0.2 and the message was "successfully".

However, even although I am logged on to GC the "Find Nearby Caches" still does NOT function.

I will do a series of screen captures and attach them to the next post.

Works great on my Samsung Facinate SCH-I500, running SC 2.9 (EB16SC29x_DXC). ACTUALLY, it's ALWAYS worked great even on the base OS.

I upgraded the app and started it up. I checked out the souvenirs and there were only two from Germany. Next I searched for nearby caches. It showed them fine except for ones that I had previously found were included. I went and changed settings to not include previously found caches. It seems my settings were not saved during the update. Went back to find nearby caches. The found caches were still showing up but checked. Went back to the home screen. That's when I noticed I was logged in as somebody else. Forget who, but the person with the x-ray of Homer Simpson's head. I tried to switch user but that failed - I got the wait screen. I backed out of the app and started over and now everything seems fine. Very strange. So it seems I was sort of logged on as myself (found caches were checked) and someone else. Very strange indeed.

I can no longer get the app to reliably start up. I touch the app icon, but most all of the time, the app doesn't start. Also, the last time I was able to get it to start, it showed no souvenirs.

I have to tap at least 5 times and wait before the app will open now. Although it eventually comes up..it is a pain in the butt getting it to open.

Xperia X10, Android 2.1. Happened on the previous edition too, as described in the v2.0.1. topic.

 

I was able to use the app for some time earlier today. When I tried starting it just now, I got a force close again. Second attempt brought me back to the cache where I had left it earlier today. I went back to the main menu, tried to open "offline lists" - they are gone once again. The same goes for the waypoints that I had added earlier today (final coordinates for mysteries).

 

Please let me know if there's anything I can do to help sort these problems out.

Im having the same issue with my Droid Eris, I updated and it works fine sometimes, and now the majority of the time the app will just crash on me.

If im paying for it, shouldnt it work

The ignore list is still 'not' being ignored.

 

Given you guys cooked up a quick update, I'm very disappointed you didn't work this very obvious (and really basic/annoying) bug.

I was annoyed at the slow-start-up problem. Then I deleted all my offline caches, and now the app starts in a reasonable time. Everything to do with offline caches seems unacceptably slow with this app. The databases take too long to create, even from GPX files on the SD card.

 

I suggest using Geobeagle or GeOrg for PQ-based caching.

When I finally got the app to open, I was logged in under someone else! When I tapped the 'Switch User' button it took me to my PQs. I had to close and reopen the app to be able to finally click the 'Switch User' button and only then did it give me a login screen so I could log into my own account. This is a pretty serious issue. Others have reported it also at the feedback site.

When using the app today, I found multiple instances where I was logged in as another user. It just randomly had me logged in as someone else. This was obviously happening to others, as if you look at my caches found, there is one cache from June 19th that I apparently logged in Pennsylvania (I was caching in Grand Bend, ON). The cache discovery was that of user mortonfox who also posted the issue on the gc2v8mb cache wall.

Please, please, please, enable move to SD. My phone has a limited internal storage and this app is HUGE - 7.84MB, which makes it the second largest app I have after Google Maps.

This also happened to me yesterday. This is a very serious security breach.

 

I opened the app several times yesterday, and was logged in as different users. I could even make a log entry with the other user's account!

I think you can only do that in Android version 2.2 and higher.
