I will. I want to wait until I can play with it some more. If I recall, the app doesn't authenticate you at all, so it doesn't really know who I am.

How do you log your finds with Columbus? Do you just go to the Web from the listing page or what?

Hello, yes, there is no other solution for submiting a log than via web. Later there will be a option for submiting a log for opencaching sites, but it require implement API for opencaching. Its on my TODO list.

When I try to do a log entry from my Droid (using Dolphin HD browser), I can get to the cache page and fill in all the info, but rarely can get it work when I fill in the description part of the log. I don't know what it is about that one field. I usually have to wait until I get home and just do it on the computer.

Looks to be a nice app and headed in a good direction - How does it compare to c:geo?

It's infinitely better. Well, at least in its usefulness with this site.

It does not support live mapping, even for that big site. However, simply using the "show nearest" option for OCUS works well enough, for now. I really can't wait for them to implement the "login" functionality, so I can filter out found / owned caches. I was slow to use it, but have now been using it it to at least help with most of my OCUS caching.

And don't forget - Monday is "Columbus Day", so get out and find some caches with it.

You can have it filter out your Finds. On the ones you find, hit the Menu button, then More. Click "Mark as Found". Then on the main screen, hit the Menu button, then Options. Uncheck the "Show Found Caches". If you want to hide your Hides, just mark them as Found, too. It's manual, but it works. :)

Another way is to mark your finds as I mentioned above and don't mark your Hides as finds. You can go into the Groups (the 3 colored binders icon on the bottom right), click the menu and Add a group called "My Hides". Go into each of your Hides and hit Edit from the Menu, More. Change the Group to "My Hides". You can still hide your finds as before, but you can choose to show All (all unfound (if you have Finds hidden) and your hides), My Hides or Uncategorized (which would be all unfound).
