Looking4Cache Lite - Geocaching App
By Looking4Cache UG (haftungsbeschraenkt)
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Looking4Cache is a app with a wide set of functions around the fascinating hobby geocaching. With direct access to over two million geocaches on Groundspeak´s Geocaching platform you can search for a box nearly everywhere.
In seconds you can store geocaches including all informations like the last logs, the waypoints and the images to your device over the direct API access (for this please read the annotation on the bottom). Or you can import a gpx file or a pocket query. All data will be stored on your device for offline usage.
Log your founds with trackables instantly or after your trip in the app. You can upload fieldnotes to the geocaching website too. And this not only for you but also for your complete team.
To save power the GPS accuracy will be switched based on the distance to your next target.
Here a list of the key functions:
- through the Geocaching Live API
- load Pocket Queries
- import own GPX files
- GCVote integration
- add Geocaches to lists
- use a lot of filers and sorts
- swipe a cache to build lists for your next trip
- Online OpenStreetMap, OpenCycleMap, MapQuest, Bing
- Online Apple Maps
- Send coordinates to other navigation apps
- for multiple users
- with a log draft
- log Travelbugs
- save logs locally
Attention: To access the geocaches you need a user on Groundspeak´s Geocaching plattform (.com). According to your membership type the amount of data is restricted. Basic Members could load 3 full cache descriptions per day and up to 6000 basic descriptions. As a Basic Member the geocache search is restricted to traditional caches. To get full access and use all functions of this app you should have a premium account.
What's New in Version 2.3.4
Fixed a crash when starting the app. Here are the original update notes of V2.3.3:
You have the possibility to test the most functions of Looking4Cache Pro for the next 45 days. After starting the app you will be asked if you wan´t to join the test.
In this version there is a improved english translation. Many thanks to all contributors! If you wan´t to help to remove some odd descriptions, I setup a translation webpage where you can suggest corrections. Please see my homepage for more informations.
In this version I provide some bugfixes and a new function helping some cachers: The font size is adjustable now. Also I added a news function, so I can now faster communicate workarounds for bugs.
- You can increase the font size in L4C. For this there is a new setting in the Style-Configuration.
- The ‚Heading Map‘ function got a own action (in the action list).
- The text entries in the geocache search will not longer be ignored. (iPad only)
- Worked around a bug in Here Maps that prevent sending coordinates.
- The controls of the internal web browser will not be covered by ads anymore.
So far, so good. Only used this app a couple days now but I have not found any issues. This app gives you accurate information and is easy to use. I've also not experienced having to upgrade this app. 👍🏼
