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

    Not bad, could use a little touch up

    Not as good as it could be, but for a beginner cacher it'll do. Needs to be better for a Windows Phone.

    Works great! Could use better support for waypoints and different coord systems for puzzle caches.

    Liked the iPhone version more but it has the right concept and gets the job done.

    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.

    Very well done app. Just some minor issues. If the app is running and I put my phone in my pocket. Then get to a geocache a pull my phone out the map doesn't up date the location. Never mind I got a new phone and it updates the location just find. Something must have been wrong with my old phone.
