Android App OKAPI Support

Postby UMainah » Sun May 12, 2013 12:53 am

I put together an updated list of Android apps that support the OKAPI http://www.opencaching.us/okapi/introduction.html

Columbus by Vladimír Bučko - https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... g.columbus

GeoCaching Buddy by BtStSoft - https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... buddy.view

OpenCaching for Android by b64 - https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... hing&hl=en

Opencaching QuickFind by Wojciech Rygielski - https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... roadrunner (use this as a plugin for other apps like Locus and GCBuddy)

c:geo by c:geo team - https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... geocaching (Currently accessing via xml, OKAPI coming soon)

Feel free to respond with any additions and I'll update this post.

Awesome, thanks!! Our German friends at Opencaching.de just became OKAPI compliant on April 19th, so I'm sure that's the reason. Are you telling me that c:geo is totally on board with OKAPI as of now?

You can read all about it here: http://blog.opencaching.de/2013/04/opencaching-de-startet-die-okapi/ but of course it's in German. :mrgreen:

I will update the Phone apps for OC page today. That's an easy one, I was doing bulleted HTML lists in like 1998. :x Php however, is still mostly greek.

There is no integration of OKAPI in c:geo, yet. c:geo is currently accessing opencaching.de via OC.de's old xml-interface.
But the developers of c:geo are working hard on an OKAPI integration. I hope they are finished soon.

Thanks. I clarified the top post I think. Is c:geo accessing the other nodes(us, pl, uk, nl) using okapi?

Good to know! I'm going to break out the apps by platform, now that there are several for Android, so it won't be "today" for updating that page as threatened yesterday. But not too long. :D

Thanks to Floop for checking in on c:geo! I have verified with the Dutch developer that GeoCaching Buddy for Android works with OKAPI. I sent a 2nd email, but haven't heard back yet, whether or not GeoCaching Buddy for iOS now works with OKAPI, or you still need the seperate GeoCaching Buddy 4 OC app for iOS.

If you read closely, Opencaching QuickFind by Wojciech Rygielski is not a fully functional Geocaching app, and is only for logging caches on OKAPI. Wojciech Rygielski is the longtime lead dev at Opencaching.pl. And bascially, author of this website. It could be said that the inner workings of this website is really Opencaching.pl converted to English. :mrgreen:

My wife has a Droid, and my 13 yr. old son, and 18 yr. old daughter have iPhones. But all three of them get pissed when I ask to install apps on their phones for testing purposes. I have a Windows Phone. Because hey, someone has to.

By the way: Opencaching.de has a similar list in its wiki at http://wiki.opencaching.de/index.php/OKAPI-Clients (in German)
