What's New in Version 5.7.4
We spruced up some of our user interface, made other small improvements for consistency across platforms, and fixed some bugs. We’re also continuing to improve our new user experience.
Expensive - not long term friendly
I am very disappointed with the structure of this app … I bought the old one … the purpose of a one time buy is so I don’t have to subscribe … then the old app is discontinued, and prompts me to download this one, come to find out I can’t even see the geocaches that I already paid to see in the old app? That’s rotten… They should have ported over their old database for those that bought the other app. I only use it once every 6 months anyway … and today when I wanted to use it I found out that it’s been 12 months since I used it last.
… That being said, they did a good job with the user interface of this app; but I’m still frustrated that they are ripping off so many people with something that is free for just using the browser with, the only difference being you need to copy the coordinates to put into a separate app to get where you want to go.
This Version Needs Subscription
I love to do a random geocache with my family when out and about and to my surprise the original app had a pop up saying it was going to be non functional in march. So I decided to get the updated new app only to find that I need to pay monthly to use it. I paid $10 for the original app that lasted me years. I understand the need for more money to pay a developer to refresh and update an app. I would gladly pay another $10 for a new and improved version but the subscription price is just too high for the amount of geocaching we do. Good Bye Geocaching, It Was Nice While It Lasted.
Used to love this app
On family trips we would use this app to go after various caches, and the kids had a blast. Now they killed it making me pay a premium subscription for it before I can see most caches. I don’t use it often enough to justify a subscription, and already paid $10 for the app when I originally downloaded it years ago. Unfortunately we don’t geocache anymore.
