    I paid 10$ for the previous app and now have to subscribe? Pretty sure this app has violated the App Store's policies. Do not download.
  • Good times

    When we have time while we are waiting around there are always geocaches to be found. We have enjoyed finding caches local and far away from home. Fun for friends and family.

    Once upon a time, I paid $10 for this app. It worked "ok". For quite some time I paid for two premium memberships when my wife and I were big into caching. It was well worth it, and I was glad to support. Now, with two kids under our belt, we rarely get to cache. I opened the app today for the first time in about a year, to find it was "retired, please download the geocaching app" And, through an act of greed, the new app, with a seemingly worse layout, will not provide any information on non traditional caches or traditional caches with difficulty or terrain over 2. (Unless you pay $6 a month or $30 a year. Not unreasonable if this is one of your main hobbies/activities, but it kills it for the casual participant, which we have become.) What a fantastic effort to take a fun and rewarding activity and ruin it.

    Nice past time. I have met nice folks, been involved in CITO and other events, Watched trackable travel the world. I enjoy placing geocaches to "give back".
  • Crash At Launch

    Can't use the app on my iPhone 7 Plus as the app crashes at launch every time.
  • Frustrating

    I keep thinking it's me, but I can't get things to work and constantly have to close everything out and shut down the app in order to get out of a list. There must be an easier way.
  • Got my money once. Not again.

    Only came to give a negative review because of the new subscription pricing. Sadly, they are pricing themselves out of business. Very deceptive.
