Life as a Geocacher

Caching and Reviewing

This is made up of stories from my caching and my reviewing.  It is a collection of those along with comments and thoughts.  Photos, and maps of some adventures and lists of some of the oldest caches.

Android app has arrived.

After a few months of waiting and moderating the Android forum on the moment finally arrived.  This afternoon the Android app appeared on the market.

I have tried a number of the other apps out there, and was always left kind of bummed at almost all of them.  From the websiteThis afternoon I logged on and finally had the app.  It took me a few seconds and it was on my phone and then I had to wait a few hours for quitting time.  Then off i went. The first cache was a bust.  but I could not find it anyway, and the second I went right to it.

I have been pretty please. It appears I have the ability to log it to my field notes, so i can make a longer cache note later, save a batch and upload 4-5 logs, or upload each log as I go.

I really liked how it looks and its ease of use. I was worried with all the other stuff out there that this one would not measure up.  It does.  and I am happy that is does.   It is the favorite of the ones that I have played with .

Android App waiting almost over.

I have been waiting anxiously for a few months for the arrival of the android forum.  I tried to get on the beta test group but they were full by the time I bought my android phone (an HTC Hero from Sprint). 

Well I volunteered with Skippermark to help moderate the Android forums on  Unfortunately there has not been any good news.  Everyone just grumbles and waits.

Well Bryan announced last Friday that they are done testing and barring some major problem that pops up it should be released this week.  Jeremy had said a while ago to expect the pricing to be the same as the iphone 9.99.  They have not said so but I would expect hobbled free apps.

On the moderating side I am expecting to stop getting the "when is it going to some out" thread with those that complain about the app.  Jeremy has said it will not arrive with all the abilities of the iphone app, but they plan on adding them in the future.
