Reviews From google play store

Don't buy this app! Another company more than happy to take your money and then stop supporting the app. Groundspeak created a new app and stopped updating this one. Renamed it classic to move forward with a new business model and created a new app to make sure those that previously paid would have to switch over. Great support. Love that this keeps happening Google. Really makes me want to buy more apps *sarcasm.


Wasted Money Paid an excessive amount for an app only for it to stop been supported months later. Don't need this kind of hassle. Totally goes against the spirit of geocaching. Been a premium member at £20 a year for the last five years. But don't want to be a part of it now so not renewed. Will move on .


Great fun game!!!! This is a great app. One thing I would suggest to do is - when you can't find it and log it as a Not found to make that find as a sad face and maybe change the color instead of leaving it as nothing. That way when. You search your map again it would be easily identified. Thank you.


Very upset Paid $10 for the app less than a year ago to have it go obsolete and replaced by a free app. I can't help but feel cheated out of my money here. I'm already a premium member of the website and have been for 3 years so that functionality had no reflection on my review. Love geocaching and will continue to do so but feel like I was robbed of my money.


Garbage I paid for this app... They are happy to take your money but then stop doing maintenance on it and they're putting all their time into the free one? It's complete rubbish I can't do anything with this. Why can't they make it so people who bought this app can have access to the same caches on the free app. Money grabbers. I'm so annoyed with this app


Cant believe u are getting rid of this app :-( Best app by far. Its easy to use and clear to see what caches you have or havent found. Have been using the other official app for a while now as knew this one was coming to an end and its awful and found myself using a competitors app instead. Why get rid of an app that so many people have happily used and liked. Shows you dont listen to yr users. Keep THIS app going, update it, then get rid of the new one.


Horrible company Pay $10 for an app 3 months ago and now they stop supporting it. I feel so robbed. They also denied me a refund. I'm never buying anything from Groundspeak ever again.


Clean user interface and easy to use (okay for beginners), but compared to other apps on the market, lots of features are missing. Would have been okay if free or like 99 cent, but overpriced with current feature set. The free app does a better job.


Being phased out I love this app and i'm NOT happy that theyre ending support for it as of September. I understand thst premium accounts psy to keep the site running, but restricting the app to so few options for basic members still really sucks.


Won't let me connect to the site I feel like if we PAID money to get an app, we should be able to still use the features. How are students supposed to afford premium memberships... We still did pay for this bl**dy app. I never had any problems when I 1st got it a few years ago, so why all the issues now????


So much better than the other app This app, which had been neglected by groundspeak is 100x better than the other app that they have turned into garbage. I only wish I could load more caches at a time. If it did that, 5 stars from me!.... not that groundspeak listens to any of us.


100% better than the new app I keep downloading this version of the app even though it is unsupported. This is so much easier to use than the new improved version which I hate with a passion. It even seems to be more accurate than the new version. Please bring this back. The new app may look more modern but it's horrible.


This is a really good app for basic members for geocaching, and you'd better get it while it's still available. This old app isn't without its flaws, but for a one-time fee it allows you as a basic member to enjoy the game. The new "free" app is only useful if you are a premium member; if you're a basic member it is just about worthless because the vast majority of good caches are restricted to premium members, a lot of which is available to all members on the website.


Cant believe they charge you for this app, stop updating it. Put EVERTHING into their free app which is absolutely rubbish, and hey this is one is 100x better! Be a sad day come March 23rd. Why fix something that's not broken? Not happy groundspeak, nice pay day for you!


No longer updated Bought this app for the full account, now it's worthless. I hope you all had a good holiday with all of our money.


I payed for this!! It doesn't get updated! I need a credit for the new app to get a free lifetime subscription. I HATE THIS!! NEW APP IS SO MUCH BETTER!! GIVE ME A REFUND OR A CREDIT TO THE NEW APP NOW!!!


Upgrading So since I paid for this app with google. I loaded enough google money on account. Waste of time and money. Now cant use google to actually get the premium account. Really stupid if u can do it for the one part should be able to upgrade that way too. Should load more caches at one time and load as map is moved like the intro version.


Disappointed that I'll have to switch I love this app, and I recommended it to everybody I taught geocaching (quite a lot of people) but I'm very disappointed that I'll have to switch to the new app where I will only have access to easy geocaches. I'm very unhappy that I no longer have access to all the geocaches. I guess I'll have to start using a GPS instead. This app was worth the $10 just to be able to have access to every level of difficulty and terrain.


No longer works Paid for this app, but now there's a new one and this isn't it. The new one looks like garbage. This one won't connect to the servers anymore. Good job kicking your fans in the teeth.


Better then the new one This has much more functionality then the new app. Additionally, the caches that are over 1.5* are available where as on the moneygrab, sorry, new Geocaching® app, you have to pay for them. Rethink this groundspeak. NOT a good idea.


Joke of a company Purchased this (and it wasn't cheap) then they stop supporting it and make a new one which again you need to pay for.


Obsolete app. Should be taken down from the store ASAP. I used to Geocache regularly, even hid my own caches, but it's no longer fun because people don't care about looking after their caches or others. So many travel bugs lost because of careless people, so many logs replaced because people can't screw a lid on properly or replace the cache where they found it. I was a premium member, but cancelled my membership only for them to charge me AUD40 again last week. Very disappointing.


I loved this app which is why I payed $10 for it. But now it is being replaced by new app and the new app doesn't show caches. And wants you to upgrade to premium to give you more info on those caches.


Not working - payed 10 euros for app and now it's not supported and they want more money to use another new app! Payed premium before, but after I see how is groundspeak behaving to users, I will never ever pay Premium or even little money to this thiefs.


Do not buy! I am an original owner of this app, paid $10 for it, then the compass stopped working properly, the app was no longer supported and now a new version created that we were made to swap over to. Which... surprise, surprise, the compass STILL doesn't work properly on!


This app is wayyyy better than the " New App". I am not crazy about the Newer app. This one is easy to use I have been caching for almost 5 yrs now and this is By far the BEST APP for your phone! The Cords are always accurate. Its fast and Always up-to-date! This getting 5 stars from me!


UPDATE:When I switched mobile companies this app was brilliant! However, now that the classic app I PAID for has "retired" you have to download the "free" app and you only get 20% of the caches you did with classic. As a single mom this was a great way to spend time with my son for next to nothing. Except gas and snacks. We once even geocached our way to Legoland! But now we probably won't be caching much do to the high cost of the app! Groundspeak, you really goofed this one up!!! Sincerely, One UNHAPPY Momma! I finally broke down and paid the $10 for the app. Sorry I did. Lost connection 99% of the time. Yes, I'm sure I wasn't too far in the woods as I was still able to make phone calls. When "finding caches near me" it gave me a list of caches no where even remotely close to me. Maybe I just expected more from Groundspeak and for $10!


Was OK, but now is taking forever to load (sometimes doesn't even) the map, TB or anything on the app. Not sure if it's just the s7 or not.


Disappointed long time user This app is no longer able to connect to the GC server on my new galaxy s7. Forced to use the new, less than ideal app.


They fixed the broken bit. Good on ya. This one also lets you see all the caches not just the freemium ones.


This is crap. Don't buy this. Groundspeak does not update this anymore. They are only changing its name and logo once in a while for no reason.


Honestly I liked the trial better, The map layout is hard to use and I keep having to add the cache's in my area, they should already be there, also cannot access messages


finally got rid of the silly compass calibration (that didn't work in the first place). They even made navigation clearer. (But most of the UI is still silly.) It still needs to be able to export (in bulk) to a GPX file. (Interfacing to my GPSr would be awesome.) The search engine could be a little speedier in figuring out that there's insufficient network coverage. But contrary to their hype, it's anything but all grown up. Without a distance scale and road names, the map is fairly useless. With GPX Viewer being available on Android, there's no reason to use this app's clumsy GPX file loader. Note to another poster: You're doing real good if you're getting 13 feet accuracy. As bad as this thing is, I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one that thinks the newer version is pathetically worse.


Somehow less polished, The free version looks nicer and has general user interface in mind, unlike this which feels as if it was a mobile version of a website. The little features are not worth the $10...


Great app I like all the functions and ability to save offline lists, drop/log trackables and many more things I like about it. By far the best one out there.


Paid app gets binned Why pay for this app when they're abandoning it for a free app. Money down drain.


Better than new app This app has "filter" with new app charges for, so yeah, I'm sticking with this one


Doesn't work anymore I'm so glad I paid you money to have an app that doesn't work.


the app refuses to let me use it. every time i try to open it. i get sent right back to the very main screen where it says sign in through facebook or create an account. ive already got an account and ive had it for some time.


No more support Obviously I feel a little screwed over
