Caches – A new Geocaching app for the iPhone

Recommended Posts

My Geocaching Live enabled app for the iPhone called Caches finally made it into the App Store.

 

It’s available on the App Store for just $ 2.99.

 

You can find screenshot on the App Store and on the app’s website.

 

I paid attention to create a simple and easy-to-use app while still providing all necessary features. Here’s a list of features:

 

  • Search caches on a map
  • Search caches by location and name
  • Filter caches by difficulty, terrain, size and type
  • View cache details including logs, gallery, attributes and trackables
  • Navigate to caches
  • Post cache logs and Field Notes
  • View your trackable inventory and own trackables
  • Search for trackables
  • View trackable details including logs
  • Post trackable logs
  • Download Pocket Queries

 

… and there are a lot more features in the pipeline none of the other Geocaching apps have and I will release during the next months.

 

I’m looking forward to your comments.

I rely on my primary caching app (geosphere) to create groups of caches so that I can keep track of what I might want to find (such as solved puzzles or challenges that have been met), to plug caches into offline maps or routing apps, and to export filtered and edited pocket queries or groups so that I can put the resulting list into my handhelp gpsr. At a minimum a new caching app would have to do these things better than the one I use.

Just to clarify, I would not buy a new app that duplicates what either Groundspeak or Geosphere can do. I would want to be shown what is unique - or how you can do something better. Until then, there is no motivation for me to invest in another app.

I want to let you know that in the meantime version 1.3 of my app has been released. It has a feature no other Geocaching app out there has: Push Notifications for published caches. Receive instant push notifications for new caches in your area and never miss the chance for a First to Find again.

 

(Please note that Push Notifications use the Instant Notifications feature of geocaching.com and require a Premium account.)
