Geocaches - A free ios app compatible with OCNA

Postby Mr.Yuck » Thu Nov 13, 2014 1:54 pm

And of course compatible with the other OKAPI nodes, .pl, .de, .nl and .org.uk. Created by Russian developer Yuriy Lukyanets, it also supports Geocaching.com and Geocaching.su. Support for Geocaching Buddy 4 OC was abandoned a couple years ago, so it's nice to have a free iphone app out there for OC. Apparently support for OC came with a late August update to the app.

Geocaches for ios

It's been a little slow with news around here, so I'm going to post this development on Latest News on the main page, along with reminding people we've been compatible with c:geo since April 2014.

I had an issue with Geocaches that was easily resolved, but I thought it might be useful to share the information here. When I first tried to use it and selected opencaches.us as the source, it did not offer me the login screen. I found the solution in a note on the app's iTunes page:

]If you have account on one of Opencaching sites - please turn on Opencaching API in Settings of your device (Settings->GeoCaches->Opencching.XX API)


Once I did that, Geocaches took me right to the opencaching.us login page the next time I opened it.

Good to know, thanks! I don't have an iphone, and the last time I downloaded an app for testing purposes, the daughter didn't like it. :D So I have no experience with Geocaches, other than the author saying it works with OC Nodes.

I thought I did that when I opened up the app. That is, there was a list of opencaching databases and I picked opencaching.us. All I got was a map with no OC caches and no way to get out of the map. So I quit trying to use the Geocaches app.

Thanks for sharing the info about Settings, now I can do spur-of-the-minute checks via my phone.
