  • Compass problems

    By Trekingpalls
    I got used to using the new app ever since it came out. I was very satisfied with it until this past February (2019). The compass kind of works. It will point to the correct heading, but it doesn’t align with true north. If, for instance, the cache is directly north, the arrow will point to the “N” on the compass, but the entire compass might be showing that north is actually to the south or some other direction. Very annoying. It’s still possible to find the cache if you know which way north is. You can also watch the distance get smaller and smaller. This isn’t the best way to get the job done. I’m hoping this compass problem can be fixed.
  • One of my favorite pastimes.

    By cache&Carrie!
    Love the app. Wish I could figure out how to load more than 1 photo per log.
  • Love it!

  • Really good

    Have been doin it for a while and it’s a lot of fun
  • Looks Like I Will Be Using The Website Like Old Times

    By Skidlywinks
    I think it is outrageous that anything above a two star or something mildly different from a standard cache is locked behind the premium subscription. I fell out of Geocaching about the time Groundspeak made this call. I already paid into the $10 app way back when. I don’t have the funds nor do I want to be paying for subscriptions. I can go back to using the website and pulling up GPS calls on my phone. And as far as I can tell, I have no idea how to log or submit travel bugs on the app any more. Maybe that’s locked behind a subscription too... Love Geocaching, hate what they have done with it. TFTC... just not the app.
  • Best App Ever!!!

    By Jakey😀
    Geocaching is a very fun thing to do in freetime. Good for nature walks and exercise. Already have 15 Points.
  • Rip off!

    By ItsMyNickname
    Many, many people paid $10 for their previous app. They discontinued that version and forced everyone onto this one with a subscription. Awful. Just awful.
  • The compass really needs to be fixed

    By CC in AZ
    It’s frustrating to always need to open the iOS compass, which then somehow fixes the compass on this app. This is a big enough issue that I can’t do a higher rating. That being said, I like the app and would give it 5 stars if the compass issue were fixed.
  • Couldn’t even try it

  • Update

    By bradleysamantha55
    I paid 30 dollars for this app and this new update completely screwed me, mid-catche, very very unhappy
