Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location. Today, there are more than 1,960,000 caches in 222 countries. GCExplorer allows you to plan your future caches hunts at home on your computer, and then outdoor offline with your tablet. Features list: -Find caches near you directly on a map by different criteria -Show all data about caches (Description, hint, logs, images, trackables, waypoints …) -Export caches to GPX -Navigate to the cache using GPS (with compatible device) -Manage your favorites -Logs your visits and trackables (offline mode supported) -Save your personal notes -Show and create custom waypoints for the multi-caches -Access your bookmark lists -Access your Pocket Queries, and download them in zip or gpx format -Download the caches in your offline lists and then use them outdoor A GeoCaching.com account is required. To enjoy all the features of the application, a premium account is strongly recommended. The trial version is fully-functional 15 days-trial. Note: In some reviews, people report they can't display the cache details. It's because in the version 1, it was not easy to find how to display the cache details. Now a simple click (tap) on the cache card is enough.More

Nothing to write home about
Just downloaded trial version today. There is always something wrong with an pay app that doubles up on the geocaching organization. In that I mean one is paying annual membership fee and then app fee. There are better free apps out there on other platforms that do better than this app. For those who pay the app fee for this particular app are forced to also be premium members otherwise the app does nothing for you. Will uninstall from my device, app is worthless...More
Has some potential.
This app has some potential. It does a good job of finding geocaches. It is also using the official api of geocaching.com unfortunately that is all this app does. I would absolutely purchase if it gave more details on the cache such as logs, trackables etc. I would love to use this app as a search and planning tool so actually navigation/compass is not necessary but I do understand other people would want that. Please update and a purchase will follow.More
Not fully baked yet...
I like the general concepts, but this app is not quite ready for RTM... has lots of usability issues and bugs. Doesn't really follow the general design guidelines of Windows 8 apps. Especially if charging this will need more work. Sorry, I know a lot of effort went into it so far... get some beta testers to give big reports and make suggestions on how to improve for flow and usability. Cheers.More
It's a start, but needs work
It's great to see a geocaching entry early in the game, but the app doesn't really use the Windows Store design guidelines and looks out of place on Windows 8. Apart from that, there's some necessary features missing that would up my rating. 1. Need to be able to hide my finds when searching. 2. Allow me to select a cache and view it's logs, trackables, hints, etc. When I select a cache from the search results, it just gets highlighted and doesn't open to more information.More
