The OCxx community is in the earliest stages of looking at how they might be able to make the sites more unified in a way that could help with things like this.

Yeah, I talked with him. If we had a system that could be global and was error free (no random garbled emails, etc), I would set it up. But, oh well...

opencaching.NET or maybe opencaching.ORG as a global one? Better secure the URL *NOW*!

c:geo is the only app that we use for our Droid X and Droid. If GC.com blocks c:geo one day, then that will be the day that we stop geocaching all together.

GeoHunter is a good alternative. It's not a live search, but you can download queries/searches from gc.com AND opencaching.US and have them all in one place. You can take short notes and save them to a file so you can add more to your logs online later.

I love c:geo's live map search and the ability to drop TB's and it's usually my first choice. For a specific cache run, I'll use GeoHunter so I can do quick notes and log later (to save the battery while in the field).

I believe this is the case for far more people than they realize.

Despite the original developer ceasing work on the app, a new team of developers have picked up where carnero left off.

To get the new version, you'll need to search "c:geo - opensource" in the Android Marketplace. For now, the original (no longer updated) version is also still listed and will show up if you just search "c:geo". If you have the old one installed, you'll want to uninstall before installing the new one. Once installed, the new version will just show up as "c:geo".

For more information see them on Facebook, Twitter or their newly launched website. Be sure to let them know you would like to see OpenCachingUS added to c:geo's capabilities.

The only way to make OCUS really take off is to hide lots and lots of OCUS Only caches and get all of your caching buddies to do the same. :)
