Join the real-world treasure hunting adventure! Supercharge your geocaching with the Geocaching app. Whether you’re hiking beyond the reaches of cell signal, traveling internationally or just wanting to save your data—this app lets you take geocaching wherever you go.
Features in this app that aren’t yet available in the free geocaching app include:
• Offline Lists – Download geocaches, maps and more for a completely offline geocaching experience.
• Field Notes and Offline Logging – Record your geocaching finds from the field.
• Pocket Queries – Geocaching Premium members can create custom, downloadable searches.
• Display Digital Souvenirs – See the unique digital postcards that commemorate finds.
This app is perfect for the geocacher needing offline capabilities. However, this app won’t be receiving many updates. We recommend checking out all the newest features added to the free app.
Please note, in the future, features in this app will also become available in the free app with a Geocaching Premium membership.

An Amazing Geocaching Companion
This app and the free geocaching app have a sort of yin-yang relationship; this one is focused toward experienced cachers, while the free one is focused toward beginners. The free app has far more features, while this app has far more functionality. The functions unique to this app are geared toward more experienced cachers: you can view all caches (except premium), save caches to offline lists, navigate to said offline caches even without cell reception, request maintenance or archiving of a cache, view previously send logs, and save logs for sending as soon as you get within reception. These functions are much more helpful to me than the free app's features. It receives less attention from Groundspeak than the free app, yet is practically glitch-free and more straightforward.
All in all, this is a tough, versatile app that does its job admirably. If you are willing to spend the money, definitely purchase this app.
Great App but needs the features of the free app
I love this app and I love geocaching. The app works great and really helps me find the little things. But I wish the paid app had the features of the free app like watch support and the new sleek design. But all in all, a really fun experience.
I love love love this! I am a bit of a nerd at heart and having a chance to solve puzzles makes me happy.
Some hopes for the future:
- Better search criteria
- Ability to "hide" a cache from the app
One con is the membership. I purchased the premium a few years back while traveling abroad, so have been grandfathered into non-renewal, which is awesome. However, my friends have to renew yearly, which blows and pushes them to the unofficial geocaching apps instead
