  • Waste of Money

    With this app, you will see on a map, the cache icons of all listed caches near your location, but unless you are a premium member of Geocaching.com, you can only access minor stuff, like park and grab. You can see the grayed out icons of the better ones, but not access them. The detailed description on the App store says as much, but in a round about way that is easy to miss. It's normal for free apps to restrict full access to the better features unless you pay, but this app charges a lot of money for only bare minimum access. I can't say for sure if this restriction was part of the deal when I paid $10 for the app several years ago, but if it was, I don't remember it. This week I used the app for the first time in quite awhile, and the restriction quickly became apparent. I believe they have purposely taken away a privilege that I paid for. Since the location of premium caches are indicated on the app by an icon, it's conceivable that a disgruntled purchaser might figure out their location, then steal or move them. A lot of premium caches are multi-stage, so imagine the havoc he could create by removing the clues, or replacing them with bogus ones.

  • Bought the app a year ago, then they changed it to a subscription

    I refuse to subscribe to your app now because it is too expensive. You're hurting the geocaching community with your greed.
  • How do I do this?

    So this is an amazing app I love it but I just don’t know how to create a geocache. I tried it online but it’s all glitchy and doesn’t work right I would rate it 5 stars but there’s no where to make a geocache.

    We love geocaching!!! The places we’ve been to. The things we’ve seen. The bond it’s brought to my son and I. All because of geocaching. Thank-you. Now we need to learn how to hide a cache.
  • Not Happy

    I understand having something like premium, but to access anything above 1.5 seriously. I had tho old app and had no problems, I was extremely happy to hear about a new app, but then I figured out I had to buy premium to access features a had no problems accessing on the old app I was extremely unhappy. And then y’all made it impossible to use the old app. I AM EXTREMELY UNHAPPY.

    I down loaded this app because it was free and figured it would be a good way to get into caching but one I realized it was a subscription based app I went back to read reviews. I found that it was previously an app which you had to buy and developer had change it to a subscription based app and not grandfathered all the people who had bought the original. TLTR: Developer is a sleeve bag don’t get this.

    I saw the souvenirs, but there’s no description or pictures to enlarge when clicking on each souvenir. Please fix it ASAP.

  • Took a great app and ruined it

    By Actionjax777
    After paying for the original app and being very satisfied with it, the developer decided to get greedy and screw over its clients by “retiring” the old app and forcing you to pay for the new one on a subscription basis. You’ve not only lost a geocacher, but a customer as well.
