    My family went out recently to look for them as a way to try to help my brother lose some weight and the few that it says that are in my area aren’t even there we looked at multiple and they aren’t there. At least we didn’t pay for the subscription
  • Basic user, app is pointless

    I’m like many others before, a non-premium user who finds little use in the app, currently. I paid for the app many years ago and was annoyed when they phased it out for this current one. But like the time before there was an app, I will happily find geocaches without it as well. I’ve posted in other places that I would probably do an in-app purchase to unlock all non-premium caches, but I’m NOT interested in paying $30 a year for a membership I would use maybe 10-15 times. I geocache when I’m on vacation and in new areas, otherwise, not something I do. So for their to only be one paid option seems like a huge miss by groundspeak. But I think groundspeak must find joy in their ability to ruin their own game. Time and time again they’ve done things that just leave their users scratching their heads, this app being one of them. Oh well, $30 I can spend elsewhere.

    How about doing what everyone ask for? Give us back our paid app.

    Please update the map it is VERY out of date. Other than that I am happy with the app!
  • Junk

    The app is junk unless you pay a yearly premium fee. Really disappointing for a game that was developed as a free activity by the community.
  • Pretty functional. Not happy with the subscription change.

    I understand the need to make a profit, but I’d already paid for the old app, and it was expensive. As a geocaching app, it’s 4/5 ... some things are not as easy to find as they should be; I had a hard time with trackables. Nevertheless it does work for the basic task of finding caches on a phone.
  • Fun, fun, fun

    We’ve been caching since 2011 and have cached all over US and Europe. We love to get out and see an area via geocaches. Great family fun:passed the fun into our kids and grand children. Smokey 44

    I used to love going geocaching! Until they added their stupid membership thing like they don’t already make enough money.
