Love the app! 5/5
I’ve started from the standard Garmin to the app love the idea of binge caching nonstop with the app
Things I as a premium member would love to see added to the app is direct searches for night caches. It would be awesome to create souvenirs for streaks and be able to view on the app your statistics from your profile and be able to compare with your friends.
Keep on making this the best thing for the outdoorsy type folks. Stay safe caching and a million thanks. (Firebadger)
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. If you hide a cache give it a 1 for difficulty then the cheapskates can find it. ;)
GPS needs work 2/5
Every time I look for one the GOS goes crazy and keeps changing
Good app, bad pricing 2/5
I love the app but I’m not willing to pay a monthly fee to see all the caches. I’ll pay a one-time flat fee, but a recurring charge is outrageous.
Wish for some different plans. 4/5
Lots of free options, but only very basic. Because I only do 1-2 per year the subscription is more than I am willing to pay. I would like something like &.99 per day.
I got turned on to this game a few years back and I love it!!! I have traveled to places I thought did not exist and meet a bunch of fellow cachers that are great people.
Don’t get premium through iTunes 1/5
By N. Bedlam
I purchased the yearly reoccurring premium subscription through iTunes and when I got a new phone and re-downloaded the app, but my account is no longer premium on the app even though it’s showing I still have an active subscription on iTunes. It’s pretty lame to pay that much for something and not be able to use it just because you switch phones. And was I ever even a premium member on the geocaching website having paid through iTunes? I don’t get it I paid them money I should have premium membership.
I like geocaching a lot, but right now it’s not even usable since the app asks me to pay for something which I already have.
0/3 No finds 2/5
By Russell youngblood
I didn’t like the app because when I was going geocaching I went to the spots but the stuff was never there. I also didn’t like the description became they didn’t make any sense and some of the didn’t even tell you what you were looking for. So I didn’t really like the app.
Love caching 5/5
Get the app, get your family and/or friends and get hook to something other then a screen. Try it free, then go premium, if you enjoy the outdoors and challenging your senses go Geocaching!
A “premium membership” on this app is ridiculous and even more ridiculously expensive and I can’t think of any good reason why this app should cost any money other than just greed on the developers part. It’s not like they are the ones maintaining the geocaches and doing all the work. All they are providing is a database of locations, pretty simple. It shouldn’t cost anything.
Geo catching 1/5
My kids have done this before and said it was a blast! We tried it out and walked for a little while when we finally got there we could not find anything! They were five feet away and when they took one step they were 25 feet away. I would recommend trying this but some of the geo catching maps do not work.
My 15 second spiel 5/5
How I explain geocaching to people who don’t know, is as follows:” it’s interesting people hiding interesting things in interesting places”
Good app 5/5
Can this be turned into an app that works with Apple CarPlay? That would be very helpful.
By Joe L87
I’ve taken down all of my geo’s and suggest everyone do the same as they don’t pay us to put them out why should we pay them to look for them.
This app is great 5/5
Hi I love caching and you can find large small micro regular and medium
It's really sad to see that just cares about money... 1/5
I bought the app a few years ago when it used to cost $10, which was a lot at that time because all the apps used to be $1 ( even now $10 is a premium price) now that I decided to go back I can see that my initial investment has gone to waste because now you have decided that you want more money so now you want to charge us monthly to get something that we have already paid for.... This just makes me to not want to use it and find another service or something else...
We love geocaching as we travel — we discover new places, learn about the history and culture, and love the “thrill of the find.”
This is an amazing thing that I love to do and I have found multiple level 2.0 caches by looking at the screen so I don’t understand why there is a membership for this! It makes no sense! I will be emailing a detailed review under [email protected]
Geocaching is amazing and this is an amazing way to meet new people and explore the world around us. However, the fact that, to get coordinates of over 50% of the caches you must pay either $5 or $29 to “play.” Even though this is a physical game it is lacking.
You are already getting money from your shop. People like me, are making an effort to purchase caches from your website and hiding caches. Even if the cache is hard we will rate it a 1.5 or 1.0 terrain and difficulty because, No one can use the cache otherwise unless they pay!
Your goal was to create a massive treasure hunt worldwide, but, because we have to get the membership, thousands of us use, you guessed it: Cachly. I can’t get that because, personally, I don’t have money! I geocache to get away from mental problems and to get outside. If there is money involved in an activity that is so fun and simple then It makes me sad that I have to rate it 4 stars.
The actual finding is so fun! I love meeting people in the community and finding caches, but the fact that you have to spend money to have fun is odd. People would rather talk to each other on phones than go outside and spend money on, a hobby.
So, I really thing that this is a really amazing community, but, there are to many flaws. Plus, I don’t have cellular data so that forces me to look at the map, and travel like an explorer from 1880.
But, I live in Stapleton and near aviator park where there is a geocache! It’s flat! I’ve been in the bushes before! Yet it’s rated above two so I can’t log it! That’s just sad! I’ve signed the log book but can’t actually log it and tell them that the hiding spot was great!
Overall, this gets a four, I really think it has potential and great intent, but execution could be improved and I might revisit this app again if the price comes down. Happy caching and thank you for your time.
A bit sad 3/5
By H Strat
I love geocaching. I have made a few caches and when I made a new account after not playing for a couple years i come to find out I need to pay to play. One of my own geocaches is a premium cache that I can’t even find (I could find it I know where it is) A good program that is now just milking money from other people paying to put down caches
Please enhance 3/5
Please add apple watch and iPad support
Great app for some quick fun. 5/5
Accurate enough for most geocaching.
Together separately 5/5
This is absolutely the best app I’ve ever had ever. So much fun every time even if you don’t find it.
Good fun 5/5
By pink papper
We love this game it is to much fun life would be the same with out it god is good
Could be better. 4/5
By The Monkey1087
I think it should only show things within walking distance and the yearly and monthly premium should be less expensive.
I love this it is so fun
Why are they charging the ones who create them? 1/5
By Whitney aka Girlzzzz
Geocaches are created and maintained by US. How dare you charge us $10 initially for the app and now try and charge us a monthly fee. This is absurd.
Something for everyone in the family to do anytime...anywhere
Terrible app 1/5
Been a member since 2005 and introduced hundreds of people around the world to geocaching. Myself and many of those refuse to geocache because we
paid for the $9.99 version and then you bailed on us loyal users for a greedy subscription model. Bad app, bad company, pad people!
Which caches are handicap accessible? 3/5
I’m a double amputee and wish the app showed which ones are wheelchair accessible. It’d make it a lot more convenient for me to know which ones I could even go to. I would really hate to travel a good distance only to find out it’s unreachable for me.
iPhone cacher 5/5
I just logged my 755th find and all have been using the iPhone app for geocache.com. It has always worked well and don’t see the need for an actual handheld GPS.
Another unhappy customer 1/5
Being that I already paid $10 for this app and can’t access anything, I think we should be grandfathered or refunded. Until then, here’s my one star.
I’m not impressed.
Disgusted by the cost. 1/5
Geocaching is a fun activity. I’ve been doing it off and on since 2001 back when their server was a P90 and you had to log on a 5am if you wanted to use the website without crashing.
Back then, their mission statement included a section about how they wanted it to be free for all people to explore the world and discover new places. You needed to buy a GPS, but that was it. Volunteers manage the cashes, and they managed the database. It was obviously a labor of love and nerds the world over rejoiced. They operated just fine on donations and ads.
Since then I’ve watched them chip away at that original mission to the disgusting perversion it is today.
As it stands now it’s $30 a year. Real business software isn’t that much. The MS excel portion of the yearly 365 subscription isn’t that much. All groundspeak does is list what volunteers maintain. They use maps other people generated. The app itself isn’t an amazing feat of coding.
This app is useless without the subscription.
Geocaching is fun and introduces you to new places, but not that fun. Especially now that there is no new content due to the cost. Now it’s just a bunch of soggy boxes in the woods that haven’t been found in 6 months.
Compass locked 2/5
By Retired in nh
Got the app several years ago to supplement our Garmin. Have used it off and on. Recently I found that there were some nice features added to the app and felt that we’d use it more often. Unfortunately, on my iPhone6, the compass is locked on N up. Very frustrating. The setting in the app is set properly. This feature used to work perfectly for me. Wish this feature would be fixed.
My favorite hobby. 5/5
If you like to be outdoors.
Enjoy scavenger hunts.
Or need a new hobby.
Geocaching is for you!
By Michelle Engleman
The lay out of the app is honestly awesome. It’s easy to use but I hate the fact that I need to pay monthly or yearly to find other geocaches which is pretty dumb. I’d rather pay at once and enjoy the app than have some subscription.
App works great and is a good tool for this Awesome treasure hunting game.
I enjoy geocaching, but there are issues with this service
- good app design
-not many bugs
-way too much money. You don’t get enough for what you pay.
-gps needs to be fixed... I walk 50 meters to where it said to go. OH, actually 100 meters in the opposite direction. WAIT, now it’s 30 meters in another direction.
-you can’t make a geocache through the app.
The geocaching app is the most sophisticated application I have run into. Items almost anywhere in the world. Exercise while playing. An unbeatable combination.
Works Great 5/5
I love the new app! It took a while to get used to it, but it just keeps getting better, and the overhaul they did to modernize the old code is now paying off.
My favorite newer feature is showing my DNF’s when I’m in an area—So I can avenge them!
Keep up the good work—the app is top notch and worth paying for.
A must play game! 5/5
Title says it all
I went to a geocache area but the entire geocache was stolen but still a fun walk
WE LOVE IT 5/5
My family and I absolutely love going for a long walk and looking for caches! This is our new summer tradition!
Can’t Log In 1/5
I’m a first time user, and I can’t create an account because the app keeps going in circles as I attempt to log in using Facebook.
Can’t connect to Facebook 2/5
By Sheri Webster
I’ve been using this app for two years now and I love it. Although!... I recently resubscribed and all of a sudden the app logs me out and will NOT reconnect to FB. P.O.ed because I have all of my found caches logged in this account and I do not want to have to unsubscribe and create another one so I can resubscribe and lose all my caches.
How do I fix this? I have an iPhone 6+
Well, I wish..... 3/5
I have been caching since 2009 and bought premium for all but 2 years, paid for the app at 9.99 hoping it would be user friendly, and it was for a while. Then used c:geo as I had an Android and it was awesome! Very user friendly! But now I have an iPhone again and have to use the geocaching app and I wish it was user friendly regarding getting closer with the map and with trackables. C:geo had a little drop down that you could visit all or drop some and not others. Ugh. Please update this.
Fun outdoors 5/5
By Jen Zenker
It’s a really fun game and you can have fun outdoors with family and friends and it takes you on really fun adventures so I really recommend it but not for very little ones they could get hurt or lose but for 10 and up is a good age. Have fun caching.
Compass problems 2/5
I got used to using the new app ever since it came out. I was very satisfied with it until this past February (2019). The compass kind of works. It will point to the correct heading, but it doesn’t align with true north. If, for instance, the cache is directly north, the arrow will point to the “N” on the compass, but the entire compass might be showing that north is actually to the south or some other direction. Very annoying. It’s still possible to find the cache if you know which way north is. You can also watch the distance get smaller and smaller. This isn’t the best way to get the job done. I’m hoping this compass problem can be fixed.
One of my favorite pastimes. 5/5
Love the app. Wish I could figure out how to load more than 1 photo per log.
Love it! 5/5
I love this and I introduce anyone I think maybe interested to it 😊
