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 images and 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.
One of the highlights of Looking4Cache are the offline maps from OpenStreetMap like you found nowhere else. Choose and download the maps including contour lines directly in the app and use them in dead spots or in foreign countries without roaming costs. You can download whole states or complete countries.
With the ability to cache completely offline your battery will be conserved. To save more power the GPS accuracy will be switched based on the distance to your next target.
Here a list of the key functions:
- through the Geocaching Live API
- load Pocket Queries
- import own GPX and GGZ files

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.
This version is completely dedicated to the user interface and user experience. L4C has a new, more colorful and clean interface. The handling has become easier, especially for new users and for geocachers who don't use L4C every day.
As main element a new menu has been added, where the most important functions are centrally accessible. Depending on the situation, the selections in this menu are extended, e.g. if a geocache is currently open or a target has been set. Here are also the functions contained, which were hidden before and therefore not known to all (e.g. translate, contact owner and projection). In addition, the user interface is reworked in some places and the important elements are more highlighted.
There are now many color variants available in several variants (light, very light and dark). For nostalgics the previous brown is of course still available.
A few new functions have also been added. These include several log templates per user, which can also be saved by log type. In addition, the filters of the lists can be saved as templates.
I wish you a lot of fun with this completely refurbished version and many adventures in this cache session.

Hi-res maps with compass rules
I have tested many apps including the new Cachly. In the end there is one feature only Looking 4 Cache has, and that is a map with compass. Add to that the high resolution, and the altitude lines plus hill shading, and this app it's all you need. The map is so detailed that it can be used for long his as well. Determining how you should approach a cache is vital in many cases.
All other features are well executed as well making this my number one Geocaching app. It's worth the money!
better than anything for iphone out there
Best goecaching app by far!
Willing to pay extra for routing function in map. For example, press and hold to add a via point in the active route. This would improve cycling experience a lot not having to switch to a different app...
Use variables to calculate coordinates
Will it ever been possible to enter coordinates using the formula variables ?
