Description

Looking4Cache is a app with a wide set of functions around the fascinating hobby geocaching. With direct access to over two million geocaches on Groundspeak´s Geocaching platform you can search for a box nearly everywhere.

In seconds you can store geocaches including all informations like the last logs, the waypoints and the images to your device over the direct API access (for this please read the annotation on the bottom). Or you can import a gpx file or a pocket query. All data will be stored on your device for offline usage.

Log your founds with trackables instantly or after your trip in the app. You can upload fieldnotes to the geocaching website too. And this not only for you but also for your complete team.

To save power the GPS accuracy will be switched based on the distance to your next target.


Here a list of the key functions:

Load Geocaches:
- through the Geocaching Live API
- load Pocket Queries
- import own GPX files
- GCVote integration

Manage lists:
- add Geocaches to lists
- use a lot of filers and sorts
- swipe a cache to build lists for your next trip

Maps:
- Online OpenStreetMap, OpenCycleMap, MapQuest, Bing
- Online Apple Maps
- Send coordinates to other navigation apps

Log Geocaches:
- for multiple users
- with a log draft
- log Travelbugs
- save logs locally
- Fieldnotes


Attention: To access the geocaches you need a user on Groundspeak´s Geocaching plattform (.com). According to your membership type the amount of data is restricted. Basic Members could load 3 full cache descriptions per day and up to 6000 basic descriptions. As a Basic Member the geocache search is restricted to traditional caches. To get full access and use all functions of this app you should have a premium account.

Attention: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Best of the bunch

I haven't tried all the others, but I have tried several. This is the one I use all the time when caching. Like all these it takes some getting used to, but once you have it does everything you need. There is a web site that helps learning the more obscure aspects.

It enables the keeping of various lists for different areas loaded from PQs. And if you have 3G on your iPad and arrive in a new locality unprepared you can search for caches in the field.

The mapping function works really well on an iPad, giving lovely clear maps with footpaths and caches so you can decide where to walk.

And you can zero in on GZ very easily with the compass function.

The only very slight niggle I have is that refreshing a list of caches seems to take ages, even with a good wi-fi connection. It is quicker to load 500 caches from scratch from a PQS than to update them later. But the function does work.

I am about to buy the Pro version, little different but no ads. Since I use this just about every day it seems only fair.

All in all: absolutely excellent! Ganz gut!

Accurate

As a newbie to this cache searching malarky I've had trouble with alot of the apps, they seem very confusing or are just really far out! This is really simple and amazingly accurate! Gonna search for a few more just to make sure I'm right about how good it is then I'll be paying for the full version!

Great App

Slyatslys

Really great app that runs much faster than the official GC app especially with lots of locally saved caches. Has all the features needed to find caches and also has the capability to handle trackables. The latest update with downloaded maps etc is really a great feature. The paid version is definitely worth getting.
