Improvement to new app?

Recommended Posts

Team,

this may be somewhere else so pse redirect me if needed.

 

Improve suggestion in 2 parts:

1. Re-establish the autopost to facebook (and perhaps twitter?), it was a great way to show where I had cached and spread the geocaching message.

 

2. Setup an auto-visit function for travel bugs in the users inventory. Would be great if the app prompted me or auto logged a visit when I grabbed a proper cache.

 

Otherwise - I'm really enjoying the new app and (subject to Spidey-senses) have been using it to great effect.

 

Thanks

Please don't implement either of the above - I like having control of what does and does not get posted and where it does and does not get posted.

Thats a shame microdot, how about an opt-out or even opt-in option?

You still get control of your info (fair enough) and those that want to get to post. Right now we cant even if we want to.

 

Thanks

I agree with "Team Microdot" about not implementing the TB auto-visit option. There have been multiple complaints by TO's about seeing pages and pages of visit logs for their trackables, without any indication that the TB was actually at the location of the visited cache.

 

I would also agree with not implementing AUTO-posting to social networking sites. There is already an option to share a specific cache page, so a cacher can do it if they want, but do they really need it to be automatically posted for them? I mean, is it really that much extra effort to click Share and then select FB/Twitter?

How about restoring the "old" perfectly fine app that we understood so well. The new app is not intuitive, does not have all the functionality and frankly, is a step down!

Noncentric - I haven't seen a 'share' option on the new app. I'll have a look and that may be my solution. If not, then I'll come back for advice.

When you're viewing a cache, there should be a "..." button at the top right. Clicking on that "..." should cause a pop-up window that has a Share option.

When logging trackables, I would like the option to have all the trackables I have, to visit the cache with one button and not have to do all of them one at a time. I like how on the web site I can visit all or drop a TB individualy.

 

Also when I get an e-mail notification on a cache, I want it to go to the geocaching.com and not the app. Sometimes I like to see where archived caches were and the app won't let me see an archived cache.

Also I would like to see attributes and view pictures. These can be very handy at times.
