What's New in Version 5.6
We’re excited to announce the addition of souvenirs in the Geocaching® app! You can now view a list and count of all earned souvenirs. Souvenirs will be sorted by date earned with the most recent at the top.
Additionally, visual updates have been made to the Profile page in the app. The style now matches the updated styling on Geocaching.com. New information includes your join date, number of hides, number of trackables logged, and access to earned souvenirs.
Not quite sure about the whole payment thing.
I have been geocaching for less than a year. I've enjoyed every single minute of it, even when I couldn't find them. A week or so ago I decided to buy a premium membership for a year, since I was having so much fun with it. I don't understand what everyone else is whining about the payment system. Grow up! Would you rather have this awesome activity be diminished because of low funding? Just remember that everyone has to get money somehow. I'm sorry that you do not like paying the minimal price. Also, on another note, The new update is quite good; the profile page looks much nicer (although I don't like going into the menu to look for trackables/it was much easier just to look at it a quick glance.) And souvenirs are an awesome addition. I can't wait to get my sea legs ready, and look for the treasure of Mary Hyde!
Muggle gone premium
I've known about geocaching for about 10 years or so when I visited Philadelphia, PA. I never really took much interest in it seeing as I worked quite a bit. I finally decided to go on an excursion to Washington with my gf. She's an avid cachoholic© and she wanted to go to HQ in Seattle. We left Ohio and drove across the US, collecting rest stop and various other important landmark caches along the way. I downloaded this app and found that it was easier to get into finding and looking for them instead of just making a very detailed mapping of where you're going and then have to figure out which caches would be along the way. I've not been a muggle since the day we left and have been going at my own pace. Thus app is great and I wholeheartedly endorse it for anyone that's just starting out or those that want to leisurely cache at their convenience.
Worth the money, but could be better
I was at first sad to have to pay the subscription, but now just look at it as definitely worth the price of entertainment. It's less than you would spend going to movies or museums or other forms of fun for a year for a family. Our family has spent lots of time together caching.
As far as the app itself, it works well, but the trackables are not as easy to track, at least from what I've been able to do. You have to use to website instead of the app to see the map of where the TB has been, which used to be the fun part about finding one. Now it's delayed gratification. Also now we've started hiding caches and all of that has to be done from the website, not to app. So that's why 4 stars from us. The app works great for finding caches.
