    Good app that is less buggy and more stable than the official offerings from Groundspeak. Using it comes with a bit of a learning curve (writing, saving, and submitting logs are all separate steps on different pages, for example). One thing I can't figure out is the button for locating my current position on the map -- it's not persistently available and I'm not sure what triggers its appearance.

    Just finished a full day of caching using this app and I can say it is clearly better than the one from geocaching.com and definitely worth the price. It does take some getting used to but not much and the best part is runs cleanly and stays alive when I switch to other apps or sleep my phone. At first I wasn't sure I liked the way it processes logs but I found I liked it as I could edit the logs before uploading them. It would be great to get English translations of the helpers but that is a small issue. Thanks for making and maintaining a solid app.

    Pretty good. Supports offline maps and logging and shows solved puzzle caches in the right spots. Various linked tools in German, though. The app itself is translated fine but needs a bit of work on there utilities available from the app.

    Really beginning to love this app. The only issue would be that the caches I have found do not get marked until they are uploaded.
  • by User 5/23/2013
    I find the compass and map easier to use that the official Groundspeak app, Geocaching Live. Loading caches for offline use from a query is much faster than Geocaching Live. The Helpers is a great feature. I know I have looked for some of that info before. Topo maps would be a wonderful addition. It would be nice if it could use the Nokia maps as an option.
