Geocaching is a game that reveals a world beyond the everyday, where the possibility of a new discovery hides under park benches, in the forest, and probably a short walk from where you are right now. The adventure begins by searching for cleverly hidden containers called geocaches. There are millions of geocaches waiting to be found, scattered throughout more than 185 countries around the world—there are probably even some near you right now. The Geocaching app for Windows Phone allows you to join the worldwide adventure without a GPS. Features: - Access over 2 million geocaches around the world - View unlimited “lite” geocache data, view full geocache data for three geocaches per day - Unlimited caching for Geocaching Premium members - Navigate using Nokia maps and compass view - Create custom waypoints for solving Mystery and Multi-Caches - Log your geocache finds and upload photos - Full support for geocaching trackables - Save offline geocache lists - Add a tile to the Start screen which updates automatically to show the nearest geocache to your current location - Save searches and add secondary tiles to the Start screen for instant geocache searching - Sharing support for Facebook and MSN Live

It does the job, but still does not offer the features that are currently available to iOS and Droid. We cannot get the "lists" that you can easily create on the new site. Caches still do not show the date they were published- which comes in handy when doing your Jasmers or looking at an event. If the event CO doesn't spell it out in the cache description you have to look it up. The last update for this app was in 2014. Get with it!

Best app out there, but they are cancelling the app. :(

By far the best app for geocaching, but hey are discontinuing it. They could easily just end support and let us continue to use it.

Has yet to crash on me, though my wife (who also has a Windows phone) has it crash on her often. Pretty easy to use, almost all essential features for the caching experience- some features I noticed aren't there or have yet to figure out: -can't edit previous logs -only displays up to 50 caches on the map at once -compass doesn't align very easily, I'm doing the figure 8 motion and burning calories but it doesn't help. That's all for now. As I've been using the app over been figuring out more and more stuff, so hey who knows, maybe the things I mentioned and other things will come up.

Definitely the best of all others. Really wish the daily limit was greater though.

Enjoy the mobility but need to be able to do as much on windows phone app as in the apps for other platforms

Love it

I agree with the comments thus far. Wish the Live Tile took us into the full app. Haven't really used it in anger yet, but seems much quicker and slicker than the last, and has a crisper look and feel even though it's fundamentally the same app. I noticed some things appeared to be "missing" but I suspect it's a combination of better arranging features and them not really being needed. I am giving four stars as props to Geocaching for serving the WP7 community with a fresh new update, and free (although honestly I know I got my $10 worth from the last one :-) I will return to re-rate and comment once I have played a little.

This app is awesome! A friend of mine recommended it so I tried it, and it is so cool. One suggestion, could you rewrite it for Windows 10?




Platform: Mobile

A great, but could use more functionality, like saving solved puzzle coords.

Must have for Geocaching fans!

Super useful Geocaching app :-)
