Waymarking app, please

8 posts in this topic

We had written to geocaching.com and asked if it was not possible to get an app like the geocaching app, where you can read Waymarking, take pictures and log while we're out.

We find it difficult to open a browser and go to Waymarking.com and find out about the Waymarking nearby.

Is there an easier way to do it without the use of computer, mobile and browser.

Geocaching.com could not help and referred to this forum.

IMHO - Geocaching got pissed at Waymarking because all the "good" GPS users left or seriously curtailed their "Tupperware searching" to actually use their GPSr and cameras to do somethnig meaningful, making interesting Waymarks. So they quit supporting Waymarking, hoping it would die off and the "lost souls" would end up returning to Geocaching.

So, no, Geocaching will not help make an app, nor allow it to be published (and thereby help keep Waymarking going). Actually, it still surprises me that they haven't just pulled the plug on the Waymarking servers!

I'm still using the chilehead web app  to see all the waymarks around me when I travel.
The functions "Navigate (compass)" and "Visit waymark" that worked in the past unfortunately do not work anymore.
But the functions "Find waymarks near My location", "View on map" and "Full listing on Waymarking.com" still work.

A topic was created in the Forum about this web app in 2013 but the last post is from January 2015.

The BIG problem with the chilehead web app is that it will NOT keep you logged in.  And I don't mean across usages.   I mean within a single usage/session of the app.  You log in, and then do anything that requires a login, and it tells you that you need to log in!

I would be using it all the time if it weren't for the "not really logged in" issue.  If that could be fixed, I think we'd be there as good as we can get.

So Where's chilihead these days? Can anyone contact him/her/it and point out the problem(s)? I've actually tried it but haven't made real use of it.

I also use this app from time to time, but usually I only look what is around and don't use it to navigate to waymarks, log visits or create new waymarks.

Anyway, I tried the "Navigate (compass)" option and it seemed to work.

Also I could post a visit, but couldn't upload a photo (neither from the gallery nor by taking a new photo with the camera).

About the login problem: I tried a few things, and the app kept me logged in all the time. Even if I used the back button to go back to the page where I wasn't logged in, it still keeps me logged in. I use the "Samsung Internet" app instead of a browser, so maybe it makes a difference which browser is used.

I just tried it, too. I did not have any problem to stay logged in. I am using Chrome 63 on Android 7.0. Your problem must have another reason, it is not the site.
