Setup for Geocaching Success
Beginner geocachers search for traditional, regular sized geocaches rated Difficulty 1/Terrain 1. Check logs to make ensure the cache has been found recently.
Browse a photo gallery for each geocache, review attributes like “Recommended for Kids” or “Takes less than an hour,” and an option to view the geocache page on Geocaching.com without leaving the app.
Save geocache listings, including maps and pictures for quick retrieval and offline use.
Advanced search options allows filtering of geocaches by difficulty, terrain, location, cache type, keywords, Premium Caches (Premium Member feature) and excluding your finds or your friend’s finds.
Full Trackable integration – access and explore one of the most engaging parts of geocaching. Geocachers moves Trackables from geocache to geocache on specific missions. Log and search for their unique codes.

What's New in Version 6.1
In our latest iPhone release, we focused on making finding and logging geocaches easier:
・ The buttons for navigating to geocaches and posting logs—the two most-used actions—are now front and center.
・ We added easy-to-understand new icons.
・ Revised language helps eliminate confusion between saving and sending logs.
・ Log types are now shown in the title bar.
We also streamlined a few things:
・ Additional features have been grouped together in their own menu in the top-right corner.
・ The new “Found it!” button includes a drop-down menu for other log types.
And, of course, no release would be complete without a few bug fixes to help smooth the search for your next geocache.
HAPPIEST CUSTOMER EVER!
iPad mini in Griffin case....... CHECK! 4G LTE.......... CHECK! This Geocaching APP.......... CHECK!
I you're a serious cacher, the only "other" things you may need in life are sleep and food, and some days, even those are optional. Power trails are now so easy. Just "copy" your first log, and paste the next 20, 50, 100 or more. About 3 clicks, and your log is DONE!
If you are in doubt about if your cache adventure will take you out of cell service range, just save for offline use. We drove from state to state for 8 days and just saved the next days adventures in folders we created by the states name. Your logs stay in the cue and the next time you find WiFi or cell service, you just send your logs! Last winter we knocked out 16 states west of the Mississippi in 8 days, 4,300 miles, 100 caches and 1 wheel bearing. All with just the iPad and this app.
Completely paperless. No more notepads, scratch paper or whatever else you used to jot down notes about your adventures. Everything is right there at your fingertips.
I have yet to find anything wrong with this app.

The best ap around!
This ap has really turned geocaching on for us! We were using a hand held device that we would plug in GPS coords from the website. It worked but it was not completely effective. With this ap I have everything right there!! No typing of coords and no typos! Plus the ap works with apple maps to help me get to the cache starting point/parking spot. When we are on the hunt it is sometimes helpful to check the clue and recent logs when finding GZ is troublesome. Adding a picture to my log is so simple too! And I don't have to wait until I get home to record my found it!! Typically I do this right after returning to my car while to kids get drinks and warm up or cool off. The bottom line is, while this ap does come with a price tag is is soooo worth it!! Plus it would actually save money if you don't already have a GPS device! Buy this ap you're gunna love it!!
Love this app! You can just show up someplace and as long as you can connect to Internet, you can check to see what caches are close by - no pre planning required. Alternative you can plan ahead save a few to hundreds on the app using nice search features. With premium membership you can create pocket queries before you leave home - I did this on recent trip out west since I wasn't counting on reliable reception. One thing they should add is ability to change the date on logs recorded in app. Sometimes I don't have time to complete a log at time of find - I'll usually start it at time of find but go back latter to fill in details and it will only date a find on date of most recent edit of log (which makes even less sense to me than keeping the date the log was started.)
