Multi Stage and Puzzle help
I've read quite a few reviews that say the app would be better if they could manually put in coordinates. Well you can, and have been able to for a long time. Select "Navigate to Geocache", then at the top select "Map". On the map navigation page select the three dots "..." at the top right. Select "Add Waypoint". I haven't seen a limit on the number of additional waypoints. I've placed 12 waypoints without any problem. Once you select "done" you'll go back to the map page where you will see a flag at the new waypoint. Tap the flag, it will then come up with a description window. Select the carot ">" and then select "set as target" and you then can navigate to via the map or compass page. I can't give it 5 stars because additional waypoints are only available on the map page and not the compass page, also the lack of tutorial or help to let users know this function is available.
Really upsets you when you pay $9.99 for an app and the free version is two months newer with an update May 28 and this had not been updated since March 20. There are a few things that need fixed like when viewing the map you should be able to click the icons representing businesses to see what they are just as you can do in regular maps instead I have to open in an external map to click the business to know close by where the cache is. Very tedious. Please update! Heck the free one already has an Apple Watch app, but nope not the one people pay for! Ridiculous should totally be the other way around! Paid one should get updated twice is much as the free one!
After all that complaining. It was nice to buy the app and have a lot more caches available to find vs the few available on the free one. Please updates and show that you value your customers that put money into your business unlike the free loaders that don't help you at all!
Almost 5 star.
I had this app prior to the 10$ price tag. I'm not sure why it got so expensive. I will say for me it's worth 10$ but I wouldn't have tried it for 10. When other reviews mention a second payment that's for premium membership which isn't required. Far less than 50% are premium caches. As for functionality I love the app. The way it directs you between the map and compass are wonderful. I beat many friends who run off condiments alone. My biggest complaint and the reason it gets 4 not 5 stars is the lack of ability to input coordinates. With puzzle caches becoming more popular it's really a needed feature. I can solve the puzzle but can't put the coordinates into the app.
