CACH'EYE

 

CACH'EYE is a free personalised map service for geocachers. Each user can define the contents of his personal Cachemap. Cache data are imported from Pocket Queries, from GPX/LOC files or are exported from GSAK and visualised in an easy-to-use interactive map. Several features help planning your geocaching tours, like ToDo Lists, Focus Mode, and Filters.

Geocache Companion

 

Do you know how many First-to-Finds you have earned? It is generally a tough nut to crack for most geocachers. The FTF race is a special instant where you can meet other geocachers with adrenalin; a kind of game within the game. Whether a geofinder or a geohider, here is the tool you need to manage your FTF and those earned for your geocaches.

You made a mistake, it's not the globalcaching.eu launch but the launch of the desktop application GAPP:

 

Globalcaching Application (GAPP) is a geocache manager application. GAPP is a user-friendly application that allows the user to automatically download Pocket Queries, view all the geocaches on a map and use extensive selection methods for searching the geocaches. GAPP is multilingual. The application will work right out of the box, can be configured to your needs and programmers can change the application almost completely since the whole application is plugin based. Even the main window is a plugin and can be replaced.

What I'm missing is a more prominent link leading to the new /live/partners page.

I guess someone looking for an app will not use the link on a page which is headed with "Welcome Developers"!

If there is a direct link, it is well hidden.

 

It would be better navigating the other way around:

Showing the applications with the API-link in the menu and from there the developers can get to /live/developers
