Geocaching App Updates
This just in!
No more “Geocaching Intro” app – it’s now Geocaching.
No more “Geocaching” app – it’s now Geocaching Classic. (I feel so old.. “I remember when you had to pay for an app….”).
1. The updated design actually makes using the app outside, better. A crazy expectation for a game played outdoors, we know. The visual contrast and updated styling make reading geocache details easier wherever you are.
2. The app is best with Premium. Premium members can find any geocache in the world. Plus, they gain access to tools for sorting and filtering geocaches as well as more intuitive workflows for finding all geocache types.
3. Players can move seamlessly between Geocaching.com and the app. For example, lists that you create on Geocaching.com will automatically appear in the Geocaching® app. Same goes for conversations in the Message Center.
4. We are not done with this app. We are actively seeking feedback from the geocaching community to help us improve it. Together, we think we can make this app the ultimate mobile tool for geocachers!
I don’t know – I was not a fan of the Intro app especially the map and cache icons. I only installed it for the messaging capabilities (because Geocaching.com’s Message Center is NOT mobile friendly). And, as far as I can tell, there is still no way to import a GPX file like you can on the Android version.
But we’ll give it a try. Have to because the "Classic" app will no longer be supported after June 2016. What do you think of this change?
