Very disappointed in Groundspeak
I purchased the original app quite a few years ago for 9.99, I've never spent that much on an app since, however I felt it was a very good value and used it quite often over the last few years. For a couple years I did pay Groundspeak $30 a year for the privilege of being a Premium Member, some of the extra features were nice and I enjoyed it. The last couple years I let my premium membership lapse, but I didn't miss out on much because the classic app still allowed you to find any cache as long as it had not been set by the hider the "Premium Member Only" status. Now with this forced downgrade to the new app, you can't find anything but the lowest rated/most basic caches. It is very apparent that Groundspeak is trying to generate revenue by forcing people to pay for the membership, but at the same time they are not adding any value. Until Groundspeak changes something I guess I won't be caching anymore :(
Listen to the fans groundspeak!
This "update" is unacceptable. You are going against the very basis this activity was founded on. Many of us paid you $10 for the original app as a sort of crowd funding to keep it going. The impression now is that it's becoming a business concept for you and that is a slap on the face to those of us that have already paid our dues.
I only downloaded this so I could comment but this is the end of geocaching for me until a different method comes about or you change your ridiculous price plan. It probably sounded good at the table that "yeah, it only comes about to x dollars per month for them" but with every business trying to capitalize from this model, how many subscriptions does one person really need per month? Music, TV, Home Security, and others are all all requiring a piece of the monthly pie and now geocaching? No thanks. Do the right thing and honor your original agreement with your fan base!
Greed wins again
I'm not an avid every day geocacher, but I did buy the original app for $10 to go twice a month or so, if even that. I love geocaching and it's something that I enjoy, but to justify paying $6 per month is not something I can do. The apps feature or around the same if you pay for the upgrade be the only thing that's available for the original version are single caches below 1.5 star difficulty. It's safe to say that greed won again and that if you want to casually enjoy geocaching you no longer can. It's sad and frustrating, and honesty pretty pathetic. I hope that no one buys the app and leaves them with no choice but to bring back the original app, or at least downgrade the price. $30 dollars per year to use something that I can only use for 7 months out of the year to begin with (I live in Iowa), no thank you...
