*Basic members of geocaching are limited to returning only Traditional geocaches, Pocket Queries are not available, and Custom Search is limited. Basic members are also limited to loading 3 full caches per 24 hour period. This is not a restriction of Cachly, but of the Geocaching platform.
Due to recent privacy updates and GDPR regulations some user profile features had to be removed. Current users can still view all previous user profile data.
We also fixed some bugs with importing GPX files.
Ratings and Reviews
Poor instructions, hard to use
I’m a newbie, and this thing seems to assume that you’re an expert geocacher. Instructions are poor and very confusing. Plus I paid for it in good faith, and now it turns out that I’m not actually a premium member. Paying for the app gets you the app and 3 searches every 24 hours. If you want more searches, you have to pay a monthly or yearly subscription fee. No one told me that up front! Stinking thieves! The excuse they give is that the limit is a “third party restriction,” but they do not make this restriction clear up front, which is highly misleading. I repeat, stinking thieves! To make matters worse, most of the caches aren’t even there anymore yet they keep them on the map for seemingly forever. So you decide to hunt for a cache on the map, you select it as one of your three free ones, and then you have access to see all the details about the cache that tell you, guess what, the previous eight people all couldn’t find the cache so it’s almost certainly a waste of your time to hunt for it. Now you’re down to just the two free hunts, and there’s a large chance that the same issue will occur with them as well. Save your money. Really. I wish I had. I feel completely cheated.
Big upgrade from geocaching app
I love this app a lot! It’s a lot more accurate than the free geocaching app. If you’re looking to get into the game more but you don’t have 300 dollars to get a good gps this is definitely the next best thing. Offline maps, waypoints for mulicaches, and being able to log my cache and trackable at the same time is amazing!
I want just one thing.. when you click on a cache that’s on the map and that preview bubble pops up saying the name and all that, can you add the 5 color dots for the last 5 logs so I don’t have to click into the cache to see if someone has found it or if the cache hasn’t been found in a long time. That would be really helpful because sometimes I forget to check get all the way out there and geocache is about to archive that cache.
The Only App I Use for Geocaching
This app does everything I want a geocaching app to do. Even some extras thrown in. I like the import from Dropbox option. Also like the option to find caches based on a bookmark list. Not a bad price for an app that does everything I want.
Edit to add that the developer has added many many new functions to the app, some I didn't even think I needed. A feature to easily see on the map which caches haven't been found yet, ability to upload many logs at once, advanced filtering of offline lists, and so many more. The developer is great at listening to his users and quickly resolved problems.
