Are you talking about this one:Ā  https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.Groundspeak.geocaching.intro

Ā 

...or one of the other geocaching apps?

Ā 

I've never heard of installing caches via Google Play, so I'm curious what you've read.

Ā I use Android and I've never heard of that either.

What does the message say when it doesn't let you log into the app?Ā  Is there any kind of message like "This username doesn't exist", or "that password doesn't match?" Any information is helpful.

The first obstacle you'll need to tackle is logging into your account.Ā  You won't see any caches without first logging into the app.Ā  When you tap on the green/white app icon, does your phone's screen will with a video and "log in" / "sign up" buttons on the bottom?

Well, I am on android also, but haven't used my app for a long time. I get to filling in my username and password, click on "sign in", then get the message back that i " failed to connect to Geocaching .com". Only having this trouble on my phone, not at home.

Are you sure that you are usingĀ  THIS APPĀ  and not the previous app that was retired almost 2 years ago.Ā  From what you've described, it sound like you are still using the old app that no longer connects to geocaching.comĀ  -Ā  I would suggest uninstalling the app on your phone, and then installing the app that is linked in this post.
