Looking4Cache Pro - 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 images and 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.
One of the highlights of Looking4Cache are the offline maps from OpenStreetMap like you found nowhere else. Choose and download the maps including contour lines directly in the app and use them in dead spots or in foreign countries without roaming costs. You can download whole states or complete countries.
With the ability to cache completely offline your battery will be conserved. To save more 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 and GGZ files
- Live Map: See surrounding caches
- GCVote integration
- Supports corrected Coordinates and pers. Notes
- add Geocaches to lists

- Online Apple Maps
- Send coordinates to other navigation apps

Integration in iOS:

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.
Attention: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
What's New in Version 2.4.1
This version fixes some errors of the last big release. As always, I am delighted about your recessions. Please update your existing ones so that they do not disappear in the nirvana of 'All versions‘.

- Trackables will be categorized by ‚Inventory‘ and ‚Collection‘ (please refresh your TB list)
- Offline Raster Maps (mbtiles, sqlite) will work again

Full-featured, nicely laid out
I recently downloaded an app (not this one) that has high ratings on the app store and it turned out to be a huge disappointment. It turned out the cache search feature sinplymdid not work and the developer readily admitted to this after complaining. Suffice it to say I requested and received my money back.
This app however is full-featured and very nicely laid out. It connects to geocache.com if you are a member and downloads the caches quickly right into the app. I am so far very impressed with this app. This is one that appears to be worth every penny paid for it and so far lives up to expectations!
