Not only is the company behind this one not greedy, but it has way more features than the official app! Would highly recommend. :)
This Geosphere beat HANDS DOWN. But, I have a few personal things I really don't like. I wish user could customize what "pins" look like. Also, it would be nice to load all caches in real time as you moved (this is a limitation on the Geocache website, I know) but it still stinks. It would be nice to load a pic from the app as well. LOTS OF POSITIVES though. Can see trackable history on map (love that one). You can also preload a log as a default. Offers more easy to find choices of log types. Overall, this app is the best one going. Worth the money, no contest.
It says this is optional
This app is awesome, I love this app as much as I hate the new geocaching app...... THIS ONE ACTUALLY WORKS....
This app is MUCH better than the new groundspeak app. Def worth the minimal cost. The HIGHLIGHT feature on a cache page doesn't stick in iOS. Highlighted caches disappear on map refresh. Would be handy for pre-planning MUST SEE caches if they stayed highlighted as map zoom level changes
Looks like my second review replaced my first. And I got a response from developer on 2nd. So, now I'm rewriting. The description and visuals make it seem like more is available than is. The description and hint are grayed out on the actual app unless you pay for a $30 per year premium subscription. You are allowed to get those for up to 3 caches per day, without paying. I wouldn't mind that for hint. But the app is useless if you can't look at descriptions to decide if cache seems worth pursuing. I wanted to try this activity out and was willing to pay five bucks to give it a shot. But this app was useless to me and so I had to rely on a free one anyway. So my $5 feels stolen. The developer responded to my bait and switch complaint: "No bait and switch here. Cachly does provide info for free Regular users, it is just limited. We are an official third-party partner of Groundspeak so we are bound by their terms and by the data their API returns for Regular users. These restrictions are NOT from Cachly but from the geocaching.com API. All free Geocaching apps will have this same restriction." But that is bull. I have a free app that gives basically no info on any premium sites. But it gives description and hint for all basic sites. Those same basic sites had no description available on cachely - except as I already described above.
I feel like you shouldn't have to upgrade to get others plus you don't get hints or description. It is basically like the free geocaching app but has a few more caches.
When looking for a new phone, my biggest hold up was losing my caching app. I really liked the 2 Android apps I used. I have tried the official app and hated almost every minute of it. On a last minute effort during a puzzle run I decided to buy Cachly. I don't review too many apps, but this one needed it. This app is everything I need and more. I can write fields notes, post logs, log trackables, message other caches, see corrected coordinates for puzzle caches and much much more. It is very user friendly and I keep finding more things to do. It is worth every penny! If you are an old android cacher, this is similar to c:geo with even more to offer.
I have used other geocaching apps but this one is really easy and convenient!
I downloaded this app after reading all of the stellar reviews out there. Our friends and my wife and I decided to do a little geocaching and we had printed out several sites due to being in a hurry. We chose one that had a lot of deciphering to do before moving on to a different clue. Once we had all of the info, we were able to input the the final coordinates for the cache location. This is where it became a challenge! Everytime I entered in the coordinates, it literally took us to Marietta, Ohio....a good 300-400 miles away. We checked and confirmed the coordinates multiple times and each time it took us to the same spot in Marietta. We knew this was wrong because the hidden cache was in the general area we were searching. I thought perhaps the app had a unique way of entering coordinates, so as a test, I opened one of Cachly's stored caches and I copied the coordinates location directly from Cachly. I then pasted it right back into the search feature of Cachly. Instead of zeroing in on where the cache was indeed located, it was sending us a good 25 miles in the other direction...again we knew this was wrong due to the printout location. I for one am hugely disappointed and will likely request a refund unless there is a fix for this.
So far this app is doing everything I want and is way out in front of the new 'free' Geocaching app. I am even liking it better than the classic Geocaching app that I paid $10.00 for, and that in a few days will be disabled.
Even as I was shuddering through Groundspeak's awful, video-laden "thing," someone recommended Cachly. It took almost no time at all for me to see what all the fuss was about. This is "a true, well-designed iOS app" that very intuitively delivers all the functionality you want in a geocaching application. "Well done."
I have been using Cachly for s a few weeks now. Groundspeak is in the process of getting rid of their Classic App so I needed something new. A friend said this is working well for her so I dropped the money and gave it a spin. It appears to do everything the Classic App did and a few more. Some of the layout takes some getting used to. But it is worth the trouble.
I've used many geocaching apps since I started in 2011 and nothing comes close to cachly when it comes to availability of features, reliability and ease of use. Keep up the good work!
I am one of those gruntled geocachers who really loved her classic ap and was forced to begin searching for a replacement as of march '17. I cautiously decided to pay the $5 as I had already paid $10 for the classic and am a yearly premium member. I am so HAPPY that I did for cachly! It offers things I had hoped the classic would eventually update to but never did... like the in ap translation!! I live in Europe where caching in a different country is just a few hour road trip away. Translation within the ap itself saves a good 6 steps in caching PER cache search! In fact, I lost interest in caching at all for about six months because translating between descriptions, logs, and hints became so time consuming to do. With cachly I literally add two clicks, I never leave the ap itself, and it does the rest! SO MUCH easier! I now have a renewed fire for my favorite hobby just by this feature alone! I also love that I can take photos, and send/post them without ever leaving the ap. I haven't fumbled my way through all the features yet as I'm still finding my way around it, but so far I am loving everything I am seeing! I would like to add I'd love a feature to be added in a future update perhaps: to be alerted to newly available souvenirs through the ap as well. Not geographical ones, but the ones that are specific to certain dates to be achieved... a star or something on the souvenir icon to alert cachers out in the field of a new souvenir challenge, who otherwise may not know until hindsight. For are casual cachers who are not signed up for emails or blog updates, or who may only cache with sporadic downtime when traveling for business etc, this would be a very helpful and appreciated feature. Thanks for all you do and keep the awesomeness coming!
I love this app! Feature rich, responsive developers, offline map functionality, and just a joy to use. And at $4.99, this app is tremendous deal. I can't believe some people are complaining about this price. Folks, this app costs less than my coffee consumption on a single day of geocaching, and a lot less than gas money. If you love geocaching, you'll love this program. All due respect to the Groundspeak folks, but their app does not compare.
In light of current events with the Classic Geocaching app losing support, I was forced here to Cachly but I can now say I wish I had started here from the beginning. It offers features I've been hoping for for years that Groundspeak continually fails to offer. It's a must-have for any Geocacher and is more than worth the price tag. You won't regret getting this app!
I've been very pleased so far. Very short learning curve after using the Classic app for years. Accuracy seems to work well on my phone all w/in the margin of error.
Incredibly well designed 3rd party app that has several features that the new app doesn't have.
Just used the app for the first time. It is so easy to use and has many excellent features that the soon-to-be archived classic geocaching app never had. I am truly delighted to have found this true innovation in geocaching technology. TFTA (Thanks For The App)
