  • The app is finally up to snuff -mostly

    I find the app to have reached a point where it does everything very well. I have one remaining gripe, though: on the filter screen it’s impossible to isolate one Difficulty or Terrain level. The sliders cannot be overlapped to a single point. This is weird, because you can do that with the Android version. Why not here, folks????? Oct 18, 2018 update: this slider concern is still a problem. C’mon HQ, fix it already.

    Bought a fully functional version and enjoyed with family. Then they got greedy, and took away the features I paid for and started charging a ridiculous monthly fee for something I only use on occasion. A scam only legal in software. The app is very limiting without paying up.
  • A little more

    Would be great if the app synced with Apple Watch and also if new caches could be identified like you can while logged into the computer account.

    Stop it. Give us back the app we paid $10 for.
  • Subscription required for anything interesting.

    Groundspeak's decision to require a subscription for any cache over 1.5 difficulty is unfortunate and short-sighted. Geocaching should be open source but it isn't; Groundspeak continues to leverage the community for more and more money while offering very little in return. I've spent many resources building elaborate geocaching games and have been a Premium member for years but I'm giving up in disgust. It's just greed. They're taking the entire concept in the wrong direction.

    You’re not trying to bring the outdoor community together. Just trying to make a profit. So sad.

    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!
