Geocaching with Geosphere
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Geocaching with Geosphere provides a comprehensive package of features to support your geocaching habits. With access to the nearly 2 million geocaches worldwide registered with Geocaching.com, Geosphere is the app of choice for any level, novice to hardcore.
Feeling spontaneous? Just check for caches nearby, select your target and go! Use the description, hint, published logs, photo gallery, satellite image and compass (if your device has a built-in GPS) to locate the geocache. Finally, post your own log - all while still in the field.
Planning an outing or vacation? Preload the desired data for your destination using online searches or import GPX files / pocket queries before you even leave home. Geosphere stores the information in an internal database for later offline use when you don’t have Internet access.
Extensive filtering capabilities allow you to see only those caches you’re interested in. View search results in handy list form or displayed on a map. You can even organize caches into groups that are meaningful to you. Geosphere even includes help videos to demonstrate these and many more features.
Note: Access to the Geocaching.com database is provided under a license agreement. Geocaching.com limits the data available based on the user’s membership type; they require a premium membership for full data access.

This has always been the best caching app for premium members - with features that go beyond the "official" app. It got even better with "geocaching live" support. Now it has improved mapping and other updates
I use Geosphere to keep track of puzzles that have been completed, qualified challenges, or other caches that I particularly want to do. It quickly loads pocket queries, allows me to filter and map the results, and offers a beautiful display of cache pages. I can easily export the results to my handheld gpsr or use the app to cache with the iPhone. And it interfaces nicely with routing apps.
The developer is very responsive. A great app!
Wonderful geocaching app
I have been using the official geocaching app for some time and have been happy with it. I had heard of geosphere via the GeoGearHeads podcast and decided to give it a try. Wow, I'm sold. This does everything I need and want from a geocaching app. Kudos to the developer. As a developer myself, I have some appreciation in what went in to making this app. You guys rock!
I can't imaging switching to anything else. This app does it all for me. It was worth every penny I spent on it.
I can't recommend this highly enough.
Great solution for off-line cache info
I am using a Touch so I wanted a caching program that would work while not connected to the internet. Geosphere fits the bill completely. It even caches (in the data storage sense) enough map pages that I usually have maps for a whole day of caching. I downloaded OffMaps, but haven't needed to use it yet.
Update. Now I'm using an iPhone. Armed with Geosphere, that's all I need. Six stars.
