Geocaching is a game that reveals a world beyond the everyday, where the possibility of a new discovery hides under park benches, in the forest, and probably a short walk from where you are right now. The adventure begins by searching for cleverly hidden containers called geocaches. There are millions of geocaches waiting to be found, scattered throughout more than 185 countries around the world—there are probably even some near you right now. 

The Geocaching app for Windows Phone allows you to join the worldwide adventure without a GPS.

Features: 
- Access over 2 million geocaches around the world 
- View unlimited “lite” geocache data, view full geocache data for three geocaches per day
- Unlimited caching for Geocaching Premium members 
- Navigate using Nokia maps and compass view
- Create custom waypoints for solving Mystery and Multi-Caches 
- Log your geocache finds and upload photos
- Full support for geocaching trackables
- Save offline geocache lists
- Add a tile to the Start screen which updates automatically to show the nearest geocache to your current location 
- Save searches and add secondary tiles to the Start screen for instant geocache searching 
- Sharing support for Facebook and MSN Live

– Updated for Windows Phone 8

    So much fun

    Before buying my HTC Windows 8 phone I had been using the iOS Geocaching.com app on my iPod touch. That app has more features. Since I'm a software developer, I'm hoping this is just an early version and that subsequent versions with additional features will be forthcoming. I have used this version to navigate to quite a number of caches and it's been spot on.

    Still buggy. They made some nice improvements in April, but it's been months and these bugs are still not address (though many times reported) like crashing when the screen sleeps (making it effectively useless, unless you like draining your battery to keep the screen on 100% of the time), the live tile doing nothing (it refreshes once initially and never again despite my location), and just generally being far, far behind iOS and Android and dev registrations for the API are closed so no one can do better.
