Geocaching® app reviews

  • Soo fun 5/5

    By Froilaloca
    This game is soo fun I really recommend if you travel or go do stuff a lot
  • Where’s my “investment?” 1/5

    By mainebones
    I paid about $29 for the initial version of the geocaching app which no longer works. Now, the new app only shows levels less than 2. How about maintaining the commitment for my first purchase?
  • Thief!? 1/5

    By Gjdhirhffhdhhcd
    Just like many people here complaining, I bought the 10 dollar version and it was great. Now that I’m getting back into it I come back to see it’s now subscription based, and I get nothing for buying the amazing old app. These kinds of people are the reason fun activities like this die.
  • Buggy app 2/5

    By mamacat9080)
    I have been a Geocaching app user for 6 years. Not so happy with later versions of the app for iPad. When I get an email with a new cache listing and I click on the cache to see it in the app, the app no longer goes to that listing when it opens. I have to search for the cache manually. The app is also slow to load. It would also be helpful if the app could be used in landscape mode as well as portrait mode.
  • Went down hill. 1/5

    By Smills222
    This app used to be great. I paid $10 for it and you could pretty much find anything but I guess that wasn’t enough for them because they have since changed it and now you have to pay a monthly/yearly subscription to find pretty much anything. Very disappointed now I don’t even use it
  • Very fun and more fun with family 5/5

    By KmOnEy 183936
    It's really fun to do when it's nice out and not raining also with family and friends also fun on trips
  • Hate it 1/5

    By Deathklok1961
    I paid for a life time membership and the company wiped there butts with it and changed to subscription.
  • Great app 5/5

    By Captain Cahab
    This geocaching app works great.
  • Disappointed.... 1/5

    By Birdgal5
    This app was recommended to me, and I was excited about using it! However, I will only be occasional user. I do not plan to ever pay more than a one-time fee for ANY app! Since most of what this app has to offer is unavailable to me unless I pay and pay and pay, I will likely delete it, in hopes of finding another way of tracking down geocaches :(
  • The old bait and switch 1/5

    By Uncle frac
    I purchased the old version of the app and had a blast geocaching. But now they have decided to charge a monthly subscription to access the data, which I already paid for in the classic app. Lame
  • Not worth time or credit card number!!!! 1/5

    By Khaleesi2716
    Didn’t even want to give it one star!!! But yet again forced!!!!! This app was extremely difficult for my family to use! Every time we got to a location the GPS would go crazy and start saying we were miles away!!! And after I unsubscribed to the monthly subscription, this company is still charging me money every month for something I don’t even have!!!! I’ve looked it up and I have no subscription it ended and they still keep taking it! Don’t know how to get a hold of these thieves!!! But I’m warning y’all JUST SAY NO!!!
  • You have ruined geocaching 1/5

    By Brutascacher
    Get ride of the subscription model and honor the agreement made with those of us who bought the app. Myself and dozens of others haven’t cached since groundspeak violated our agreement.
  • Great App 4/5

    By itscrub
    I started GeoCaching about 4 Months ago. It’s been an awesome way to get out of the house and go for walks, drives, biking and runs. Everything that I already did, just got even more fun. Only I haven’t figured out how to see a list of previously found Caches. I’m operating on IPhone 6S. If anyone knows how, please let me know.
  • Needs more work 3/5

    By BHCacher
    This has the makings of a good app, but it still needs a lot of work. It is difficult to figure out how to use it and there are very minimal instructions. This official app should be the best on the market, but it doesn’t come close to c:geo (which unfortunately is not available for iPhone or iPad). After the latest update, I am no longer able to download data for my lists. When I try, it keeps telling me there is a problem and I need to try again. This needs to be fixed!
  • Easier! 4/5

    By Cache Hunter 73
    I like the new format! Things that you need, you just have to find them, both the old features as well as the new ones! Visually better to navigate to what you need. Good upgrade!
  • Please 3/5

    By pillman & pipi mom
    I really like to see coordinates with the title!
  • Used “some” 3/5

    By ahhhhhnonickname
    I remember the classic app for the iPhones and eventually had to come to this one. Some features I like say the finding trackable items part, the gps part is great yet......when it comes to the logging part is where i seem to fall off. Don’t like logging the trackable part say a visit etc
  • Not as horrible as others say, continues to improve. 5/5

    By crx81
    As the title states, this app isn't the worst thing that's ever happened to geocaching. In fact, I'll go as far as to say that the free app USED to be the worst thing that ever happened to geocaching. There was an influx of people who had zero investment in the game, who did more damage than the dreaded "muggles," having zero concern for returning things as found or for not getting muggled themselves. So this app now basically requires paid membership, which is probably a good thing. The app continues to improve and add more features, and I believe this will all end as a win-win for those of us that love the game!
  • Bought the classic geocaching 1/5

    By Dflint24
    I bought the classic years ago and I paid for the premium side of it as well . Now it doesn’t work . Won’t connect to the servers anymore . I paid for it and I’m certainly am not gonna pay for the premium member on the new one as I like to do this when I get a chance . Not very happy about this make this right for people that made you the money first .
  • Not good 1/5

    By auyantepuy18
    You are application is never accurate, I miss cgeo
  • Charged me for another month. 1/5

    By ASDF1029384657
    I ordered a one month premium membership and it just charged me for another month.
  • Geocaching is a way of life 5/5

    By Yakkkkkk
    We have been geocaching for almost 10 years. It’s taken us all over the world. Have moved from lugging around gps units to caching with cell phone app. Still enjoy it after all these years.
  • It’s not what it used to be.. 1/5

    By bruce47713
    Used to have this app a couple years ago just recently installed it again just to find out they are charging a subscription now! Zero stars!!
  • I can’t get in 1/5

    By ainsley44
    It has been stalling for 10 min and never got in any tips
  • Still no Apple Watch support? 1/5

    By cyberjunkyfreak
    It’s amazing that there is still no Apple Watch support.
  • Amazing 5/5

    By Bioclastic
    My username is JC2408This is all I do anymore it is the best app for Geocaching all the negative reviews are completely wrong this app is amazing

    By james8470
    Geocaching is amazing fun. UNTIL YOU NEED TO PAY A TON OF MONEY TO VIEW THEM! look, I’d be happy to support the team, but either a one-time purchase or lower subscription would be more reasonable. For now, this app has completely turned me away from geocaching
  • Skip this app - use your desktop 1/5

    By GotTeeth
    I paid for the premium app several years ago ($10 I think it was). Used it frequently. Recently opened the app to get back into Geocaching, only to find that the premium app we paid for is no longer the level of access we have in the app. Essentially, they’ve said “we don’t care...we’re taking the product you PAID for and will be making it useless. If you want the app to work...give us a (lot) more money!” These people don’t deserve your money. They’ve abused their existing customer base, and the new product & pricing model is disproportionately expensive for the product received.
  • Disappointed, not anymore 5/5

    By Militescriste
    Today, 4/19 it finally updated to 6.0. I love what I see! Thanks. I always look forward to an update, especially when the update touts cleaner lines and easier use which 6.0 touted. Imagine my disdain when opening the app after download showed the same thing as before the update. I don’t see any of the “updates” explained on the update page. Did someone forget to load the updated file on the update page?
  • Raised price! Bye Bye 1/5

    By Goo goo ga
    Drop the price and I’ll be back. Until then it’s Cashly app! Adios
  • Poor form 1/5

    By spencertractor
    Nothing like profiting off a treasure hunting game built and maintained by the community. Can I get my $10 back from the good version of the app you deleted?
  • Thiefs 1/5

    By Cardgenius
    Paid $10 for the old app but then they disabled it so you have to download the new app with 95% of the features locked behind a $30/year paywall. Scammers. You guys are horrible. Wish Apple would shut you down for the BS you pulled. Oh, and I’ll be updating my review every time you update the app :)
  • Paid once 1/5

    By Heo482
    I paid a one time fee for this app and now You want me to pay recurring charge. How about I get my &9.99 back since I paid for the app and now can’t use it as intended.
  • Can’t Login 1/5

    By SilverTsukuyomi
    I can’t login for whatever reason.
  • Make a visit all button for trackables 1/5

    By Jdkiller091
    Some of us have hundreds of trackables with us that we want to visit to a cache. Please add a visit all button! Or at least a selectable option where we can checkmark each travelbug we have with us so we can visit them with the app easily. Takes so much time on the website.
  • How about adding iPad support? 2/5

    By hsjb
    It’s not much work to add iPad layout to your app. What’s your excuse?
  • Issues with latest release. 5/5

    By Parazest
    Many years user of app. New release today and now app pulls up wrong geocache based on the email alert. This same issue resurfaces every few years. Usually dead in the water for a few days till fixed. Temp solution is to take geocache name from email and manually key it into app. But who wants to do that in this age of super technology!
  • Looks the same to me 3/5

    By Beavertonian
    As others have said, there are no visible improvments in V6.0 beyond one addition to one menu. I see no sign of the improvements described. This app does have one nice feature (not new). My wife and I geocache under one name. When we find a cache she writes the first draft of the log and I sign the physical log. Then later we alternately edit the e-logs until we are both satisfied and submit. The app makes this very easy. If only it weren't so poorly organized. Go buy Cachly. It is 10 times better in organization, layout, and operation. As far as the fees for membership go, get over it. There are ~75 people in Seattle working their butts off to keep Geocaching going. You want to see disfunction? Wave your magic wand and eliminate them. Your free hobby would crash in no time.
  • very cool but useless at times 2/5

    By Wes1y
    This app has almost no point in existing. THAT SEEMS HARSH!...let me explain. This gives quick easy access for geo caching if you have a cell signal, with the fact that the GUI is easy to use. HOwEVER! It restricts access to certain ones based on difficulty so you can't access it regardless. Well you can use a desktop(laptop) browser to get coordinates and directly put it into the google maps app on your phone. Rendering the restriction an annoyance. Better yet if the cache is above a certain difficulty and you can't access it on the app, you can go into your phones' browser and access the "desktop" version of the website, rendering the restrictions of this app sort of useless. However you must now use the desktop gui with awkward touch controls if you're willing to deal with that, if not, see the first tip. The app makes it easy for people that want a brisk walk to an easy adventure, but makes a heavy handed gesture that it restricts access to certain ones behind that membership paywall. If the cache is out of cell signal, insert coordinates to your $100+ gps device, OR download offline maps.(which is a function of this app if you pay the membership, worth paying for, (it makes it easier to do the activity)) This app makes the less difficult ones quick and easy to access, log and all that fun stuff, updating information on the fly, with a sleek GUI that works well and is simple to use. VERY COOL! However it restricts access to certain ones that just, in the end, makes the process just as slow as without the app. So if your out with your friends at say dq or something and your like"hey lets do this!" as a spur of the moment decision, it makes it very useful, unless its a difficult geocache which just makes it cumbersome and potentially keeping people away from doing so on purpose, unless you pay for the membership. If you plan ahead you can bypass the app altogether, rendering the app USELESS. It's a very cool idea, being able speed up that process, but just has an elephant in it's room. If anything the membership should be the way it is with the sending automatically to garmin, pocket queries, lists, premium caches and all that because thats worth paying for the membership. Purposefully making it harder for you to do what the app wants you to do is unintuitive, heavy handed and backwards, and is easily bypassed by simply not using the app. I want to like it because it has everything going for it, but this, in the end, keeps the app unopened, and my phone in my pocket. Because if your actively geo caching and planning ahead, there is no more use for the app unless the cache difficulty is less than two stars. So around town thats out in the open, cool but anything more and it stays in the pocket because it isn't a reason to pay for the membership and just ends up NOT BEING USED.
  • Horrid 1/5

    By Madpersonwhonowhatesgeocaching
    I love geocaching but the new app ruins it because you need to buy Geocaching Premium to find most caches. It isn’t worth it anymore
  • Good app 4/5

    By angelah.98214
    Five stars if there was ability to edit entries - for typos and such.
  • Don’t believe the hype 1/5

    By Occasional gamer
    I was excited about changes described in the update log for v6.0. Upon download, I opened the app and nothing is different. Judging by other reviews, I’m not the only user with the same experience. Also, I don’t appreciate the monetizing of what is arguably one of the best outdoor family activities. I started geocaching in 2003; spent $10 in 2008 to get a convenient app, only to be robbed years later when Groundspeak decided to switch to this subscription based model. Now it’s less convenient and more frustrating. Please do SOMETHING helpful.
  • App Store TOS Violation 1/5

    By Sue24667
    What a scam. Purchased the previous app for the steep price of $10 and then they discontinued it - you can't even view the information you put into it. They force you to download the new one and pay $30/year to view caches. What a waste of $10 paid to these thrives. I used to love geocaching, but I have given it up entirely. Shame on you, Groundspeak. You are criminals. I want my $10 that you stole from me.
  • Really? 1/5

    By Jde1126
    The supposed 6.0 update, did not change any looks that I can see. Such hype for something that is a false claim.
  • AMAZING!!! 5/5

    By srmkona
    I love Geocaching and it’s my favorite hobby. App is great in locating me to caches.
  • Crashing 1/5

    By dopy2004
    It keeps logging me out, over and over!!!😡😡😡😡😡😡😡
  • A few years ago, I paid 10$ for this app. 1/5

    By TheRealR4v3n
    In 2013, I downloaded this app, and you could see more geocaches than just “above 2.0 difficulty and/or 2.0 terrain.” You could even see more than just regular geocaches. To be honest, you took all the fun out of the app and you still ask for money “To see other geocaches. I live in an area where there is around 1 geocache per square mile, and I can only look for one, because I didn’t have premium. You made a lite version of the app before, and you should have kept that and make he 10$ one have the same caches as before. Until then, I refuse to use this app.
  • Nothing 5/5

    By bghcyfy
    What Can i say its amazing!!
  • Very fun 5/5

    By DeLemonLiker
    I’m hooked! Caching with the family is too much fun

    By Aphrodite Die 666
    Don't even bother with this app. I looked for three different geocaches and there was nothing at each place. One was supposed to be in a coffee shop and there was no coffee shop it was shut down. The second the cashe was thrown over a fence in someones yard. The third was the same as the second and the last one we did there was nothing. Lame app no point in getting it unless you wanna walk miles and not find anything. Especially the fact that I have to pay to see the other cashes. Rip off.
