We are hooked! 5/5
Just started caching about a month ago and it has become one of my favorite games! Thank you!
A new fun hobby! Wish I could make a living doing this. Can’t wait to upgrade and see what’s really out there!

Not worth the money 1/5
By Not worth th
Not worth the money.
Need to add more features 3/5
I totally agree with reviewer @ismilez, i’m a geocacher since aprox. 2014/2015 and there havent been any significant upgrades to the app. One thing i highly suggest developers is to give us the ability to register the caches we hide thru the app. Having to go online to the website and going through all the steps that need to be done to be able to hide a cache is pretty tedious and time consuming, nowadays i think we have enough technology to make that a bit simpler and less time consuming, and it would greatly make the app cost what it costs to have it on premium.
I’m a retired Army Ranger, so i enjoy outdoors, and use geocaching to teach my children to land navigate, and some survival skills while having fun and the thrill of surprise. But everytime i try to hide a cache, after waiting for the evaluator to email me i always have problems and they tell me that i need to add/explain more stuff which totally demotivates people to hide and maintain the game culture. Otherwise, i love geocaching and will keep doing it for as long as i can, at least searching for them, but my patience runs thin when hiding caches. Tyfgc!!!
well it was fine. 1/5
i was using the regular version and was getting into it so i thought i’d do the yearly subscription for $29.99. I was charged way more, $39.43, then booted out of my account. it now says my account never existed and i have no way of getting my money back.
developers will be getting emails from me until i get my money back.
I canceled subscription and they change my account anyway. Dishonest thieves
Weird issue 4/5
Every time I open the app, a message pops is that says there are many geocaches near me. Then it forces me to click next and then view. Can I not just open the app to the map and that’s it?
Awesome and fun 5/5
By Sammy Miami66
Do these items get replaced for new geocachers or is it just a one time find & that’s it?
Good app. Helps to pass time. 5/5
Nice to pass the one with loved ones
Please fix the Premium services 1/5
I paid the 29.99 for premium services. However, I am getting basic. I have contacted them about the issue and I only got the generic response. Either fix this or refund me.
Great app lots of fun enjoy it alot
Can’t track trackables on map 2/5
My old Geocaching app (no longer supported) let you follow where trackables has gone on a map. This does not. Kinda defeats the purpose of “trackables”.
Seemed cool 1/5
But I literally can’t even give this app my money. Every time I try to subscribe to the premium version of the app it says processing but does nothing. Bummer.
I can’t find any 1/5
It’s so hard to find all of them
Good, but limiting 1/5
Overall, I feel this is a very good activity, and a good way to get outside. However the fact that you have to pay to see more details about certain locations is very aggravating. Also, it shows where these "premium" caches are on the map, so this payment feature seems useless as it won't actually deter anyone from finding it... I'd be more satisfied if it had advertising for revenue instead of relying on payment to find caches.
This fun hobby over the years has taken me to so many places that I would have never known exist. That coupled with the supportive community make this hobby so much to do.
I don’t like to hike much so this is kinda cool I guess and one time I found a razor blade and some other messed up crap in there.
No caches showing in my area 1/5
When I go to view caches by my current location or by zip code I thing is showing up! Caches in a town or county away do. The iPad version shows them but then the navigation doesn’t work. All I get are promos to go premium. I echo what others say, I paid 10 dollars years ago for a perfectly good app only to be forced into the poor semblance of a program. Really disappointed as I was all set to take my family out for some safe distanced Mother’s Day adventure. But nothing.
Great hobby 5/5
This app works really well. Highly recommended.
By Gavin Boucher
This app is really bad for IOS users, it forces you to use the crappy Apple Maps and doesn’t let you switch to google maps.
KY Hiker 4/5
By KY Hiker
Getting better with every update. Very good using in parallel with a good GPSr at times. Helps to see the great layout when you forgot to run a query for your handheld. Accuracy is really good at times when the satellites are aligned properly. Would be nice to post multiple pictures and also see the number of finds Cachers have when they log, post a note, or send a message. Those changes would make this a five star app!
Bad app 1/5
Most of or all of the geocaches are missing and geocache location changes when you are where it say it is. Aggravating and would not recommend.
Love it! 5/5
I only wish that I’d started doing this sooner. A great activity to get outside and still be able to stay socially distant.
Unfair pricing 1/5
By How are there so many 5s....
Back when I downloaded the app the first time I paid 10$ . Now they have revamped their business model (read: not the app itself) and charge 5$ a month to use. That is absolutely ridiculous. They should have grandfathered the people who already paid in. There’s no justification for the high cost considering the PEOPLE run the geocaching largely. I don’t know who would pay for that anyway. It’s not like most geocachers do this every day. Disappointed.
Formerly Free Family Fun 5/5
I loved geocaching, and introducing friends & family to it. Activity itself is great but over the last few years this app went from a free service to a pricey subscription model built on the efforts of volunteers who made geocaches for people to find. Bait and switch to its users over the years. Very disappointed. There are some free options that are harder to get to and less family friendly. Wish we had the app of 10 years ago. Shame on you guys.
Best scavenger hunt game 5/5
Even if you need premium to access more, this is one of the best “early Easter games” I’ve ever played.
Didn’t work 1/5
Every were I went there was nothing
Great App 5/5
This is a great app. Works good.
Downloaded and Deleted 5 Mins Later 1/5
It seems as though 90% of the app is behind a paywall. Really not even worth the space on my phone because I refuse to pay $6/mo or $30/yr to do something that should be free.
Enjoy doing you with the grain baby’s
Fun game 5/5
It’s a fun scavenger hunt
Very dangerous 1/5
It was too dangerous
You do the work, they get all of the money. 1/5
Other reviewers have commented on how greedy and exploitive Grounddpeak is about assets built and maintained by others, and I’ll confirm that attitude. When I bought the app years ago it was the most expensive app I’d ever purchased - and it remains that way. Then greed won again and now my most expensive upgraded app would not connect and soon after Apple dropped the App. The only company I’ve ever heard who got away this. Bait and Switch on an epic scale. Don’t give these guys your money. There are better, free, sites
Not family friendly 1/5
This was a very defeating app. The gps did not work well at all. We tried it out all weekend and it would indicate we were on top of the cache and we would look and look to no avail. I was hoping to instill a love of geocaching in my 3 kids, but it just ended in defeat after multiple hours. And we went to the easiest indicated sites. Perhaps the caches were taken or not maintained, but after 7 sites over hours and days, I would not recommend this app to anyone, especially families.
Wish I never paid. 2/5
Paid $10 for the pro version. Haven’t used it in a while and came back due to pandemic - good activity during these times. So - other people do all the work of making the cache, placing it, posting it. Then others find it and comment and provide hints. I paid to upgrade - which was a one-time fee. And now this app developer discontinued that app - can’t even sign in -Had to download this one and now they are charging $6 a month?!!!! For what?! I look forward to someone building a new app to replace this ridiculous money grab. So disappointing. It’s like they used the $10 so many of us paid so they could create a subscription system and price gouge. Ugh.
I used this app years ago! I actually paid $10 for the premium version. Now the app is saying that I need to upgrade to a monthly subscription to access premium features. Why should I continue to fork out money for something that I’ve already paid to enjoy?
i love this 5/5
i find this a very creative thing to do. my kids and i like to go out and find them. they get so excited when they find them. i love this app. it’s definitely worth the money for the full app.
Great app! 5/5
Great app but wish I could add friends in the app
I love it ❤️ 5/5
Geocaching is very fun for me b/c you get to explore different areas and challenges yourself.
Was trying todo a class assignment 1/5
I had an assignment in my physical Geology class where I needed to find 3 of these and talk about the geological environment around them. I wasted 3 hours trying to use this app to find any and couldn’t because the description and tips aka the foundation on how to find these doesn't exist on this app. Just use the website all this app is is a waste of space on your phone.
Caching again 4/5
Been out of commission for awhile so getting used to new format. Really like the way you can drop anTB
Really fun 5/5
It’s a nice thing to do with my family and it’s so fun to go looking for
Good app 3/5
By kase 18
It’s a great app but number one, I don’t like that I have to pay to access harder caches and two the GPS isn’t super accurate so it leaves you wandering where to look. But if you’re just starting out it works.
Beware: they will charge you more than you authorize 1/5
App indicates annual cost of $29.99. When I agreed to pay that amount, I was surprised to see I was actually charged $40.98! I canceled as soon as I noticed this as this is an outrageous business practice. Reporting to Apple right away!
Good but apps unfinished 3/5
This app is good i like geocaching. I feel like the app is unfinished.
The only things I would fix is the list below
Review potential caches
Add remove and edit caches
Should have a friend list
Bare bones limitations 1/5
I understand paying for premium features and even premium caches, but the fact that you can only access a fraction of the FREE caches on here is ridiculous. There aren’t many caches in my area and of the ones that are here maybe 25% qualify to be seen on this app. I used to be a premium member back in the day and loved geocaching but I haven’t done it in years and this just turned me off even more. Sell ads if you have to or cut down on luxuries but keep this outdoor activity that is already fully supported by users free and stop nickel and diming people.
