    Fun while traveling

    I’ve been geocaching for about 7years and not only do it at home but I really like doing it while on our family vacations. We travel to some pretty great places China, Belize, Thailand, Cambodia, Alaska,Panama, etc. and today we are in Rarotonga in The Cook Islands. If it wasn't for geocaching some of the most amazing places on our journeys we would hv never otherwise seen. We’ve gotten 2 here so far and expect to do more together here as this dysfunctional family needs bonding times desperately! My point is driven home by the cache we will go get later today... we need to rget on SUP boards and paddle to this uninhabitable island about a half mile away where there is yet another cache and island I would have otherwise never stepped foot on!! Geocaching is the answer... ENJOY!!

    Geocaching begins

    2016: I am very new to all of this. Did my first cache with a friend Monday night and immediately loved it. Got the free app that night and went out on my own hunt Tuesday and very quickly paid the $30 for a years membership once I saw how many there were to find. Been caching every day (3days now) and have had no problem with the app. Can't wait to find some trackables and some more swag. Will update once I've been using for a while. Update: 2019 I have renewed my subscription every year because this is just so much fun. I don’t get to do as many anymore but it’s still worth it for me to have my subscription active when I am in a new place and want to find a quick (or not so quick) cache.

    Not as horrible as others say, continues to improve.

    As the title states, this app isn't the worst thing that's ever happened to geocaching. In fact, I'll go as far as to say that the free app USED to be the worst thing that ever happened to geocaching. There was an influx of people who had zero investment in the game, who did more damage than the dreaded "muggles," having zero concern for returning things as found or for not getting muggled themselves. So this app now basically requires paid membership, which is probably a good thing. The app continues to improve and add more features, and I believe this will all end as a win-win for those of us that love the game!

    Suggestions

    This app is amazing and did use it all the time! But there are a few things I think you should look into. Firstly, there is no way to edit a geocache desciption or add images one it has been created. This is a problem for me because there are certain things I hadn't mapped out about my cache that I really needed to add, and no matter what I did, nothing. Second, the fact that I have to may a 𝑚𝑜𝑛𝑡ℎ𝑙𝑦 fee is terrible. I wouldn't make my consumers pay 𝑎𝑛𝑦𝑡ℎ𝑖𝑛𝑔 to get access to all the geocaches on a 𝑔𝑒𝑜𝑐𝑎𝑐ℎ𝑖𝑛𝑔 app, no less, but if you're gonna make a payment, at least make it a one-time thing. This way more people will want to get the membership- because it's simpler, but also you will get more money this way. Everything is just less complex. The last thing isn't so bad, although sometimes it is a problem for me, not being able to "tag" someone else who helped you with the geocache. I think you should be able to link them as well. So to recap, editing a cache, the subscription payment, and others. Please fix these and this could be a 5-star rating. But other than that, this app is great!

    Pretty happy with it.

    I'm pretty happy with the app. My primary lament from the previous version is the loss of being able to post directly to Facebook when I log a cache. I love the integration with the website, especially sharing lists. I can set up lists from the app and then load them directly to my Garmin from the website on my PC. My wife loves being able to flip directly into Waze for navigation to a cache. I'm not one of those people who believe everything in life should magically be free. I can see where my $30 per year goes in app and website development, website and database management and hosting, event planning and execution (such as "Where in the World is Signal" and "Lost Treasure of Mary Hyde")... We do most of our caching from the app on my iPad and actually find both the GPS locations and the satellite views to be very accurate.
