    I’m going on 3 or 4 years with this hobby. I use this app as well as two others to find caches. This is the most user friendly. And I enjoy the souvenir challenges.
  • Love it but...

    By Well what do we have here????
    I started geocaching about 7 years ago with my family. I’ve continued to love it and see the great changes that have come through the years. Despite this, I do have to say that I’m incredibly disappointed. Before, you could access all level of caches, not just level 1 ones. This makes the experience for families and those want to experience geocaching for free less appealing. The creator do have to keep in mind that a lot of members have to cover gas and travel costs to reach caches, along with the price of the app. Mainly, it just doesn’t seem fair to offer things for several years to free users and then take back certain aspects.

    I’ll never pay the monthly fee for something that should be free seeing as we already paid $10 for the app years ago. What is the money going towards? They don’t put out any caches they don’t maintain the existing caches! We do all that ourselves. Wish I could give 0 stars or negative stars.
  • Greed killed this app

    I like many others bought the original groundspeak app back in the day. It was a 1 time purchase and I was ok with that. Now they want you to pay for a subscription for this new app. This while they don’t provide the content or maintain it. That is done by volunteers. If they drastically reduced the price maybe I would consider it, but not at this price point.

  • Fun activity; questionable ethics

    I started geocaching almost 10 years ago - hubby and I loved all aspects of it enough to fork over the $10 for the full app (pricey back then). But, then, the app stopped working because groundspeak required more money from users. This seemed unfair, as half of the community were happily volunteering time and supplies to create the caches in the first place. Then, the subscription model of $5/month! To access data that is uploaded by others on caches that are maintained by others! And, that the majority of users only access a few times per year, and usually as a fun and leisurely activity with kids or friends! I spend less than half that for hardcore business and productivity apps that I use DAILY, like several times a day! Sadly, I left geocaching for several years because I was so turned off by this. I just came back as several people have asked me about it and I find that there still have been no major developments to justify this cost. Just basic design tweaks here and there. This is so disappointing, as geocaching is a fantastic activity that once brought people from all over the world together and relied on the volunteer efforts of placers and maintainers. It still has those aspects but is definitely tainted by greed somewhere in the mix. 😢
  • Needs improvement

    This app hardly gives you any options as a basic member. It’s pretty much pointless to pay for premium if you can access the website.

    I love this game/hobby and I love this app. Very easy for a technophobe such as I to navigate. If u are looking for an all ages activity that gets you out of the house, I highly suggest this.
  • Groundspeak ripped off users and stole $500 mil

    By tech support user
    I don’t know what is up with the corp but stealing more than $500 million from users that used the geocaching classic app and refused any refund when the app was shutdown. escalation to BBB and personal correspondence has never been resolved. High-tech thieves like Theranos.
