Geocaching is a game that reveals a world beyond the everyday, where the possibility of a new discovery hides under park benches, in the forest, and probably a short walk from where you are right now. The adventure begins by searching for cleverly hidden containers called geocaches. There are millions of geocaches waiting to be found, scattered throughout more than 185 countries around the world—there are probably even some near you right now.
This app guides you through the adventure of finding your first few geocaches. There are tips, hints and instructions for geocaching as well as using the app.
- App picks recommended geocaches for beginners
- In addition to recommended geocaches, the app allows you to see and find nearby geocaches
- Tips and instructions guide you through finding a geocache and what to do when you find it
- “Live Search” continuously updates nearby geocaches as you move
- You can upgrade to Geocaching Premium from within the app to find even more geocaches

Great for those interested in getting familiar with geocaching
So this apps great for anyone new to caching. My family and I have been using it for about 2 months. The phones GPS puts you within 30 feet of the coordinates. Which isn't bad.
However the phones pretty sensitive to surrounding overhead power lines or trees which can throw it off quite a bit.
I placed a cache using the phones GPS and the coordinate were off by about 100 feet, not really sure if this was a fluke or not but we have a handheld GPS now which is much more accurate. We still use this app tons though. Have fun with it!
I've downloaded the app a couple of time a few months ago, debating whether or not if I was ever going to go out geocaching.. This past Sunday was my first geocache experience, I went out with a few friends, all I have to say is that it's so much fun! I hit about 15 my first day and even added a geocache to the list! I can't wait till my second outing! This is going to be a very big addiction!!
Tons of fun
I have the premium membership and still using this app. It places you in the area of the cache then you have to start using your knowledge and eyes. I'm going to try to use a handheld gps to see if it's more accurate. Other than that I can't complain about this app.
