April 26, 2013 - Working on improvements to map scaling issue that was introduced by Apple switching from Google to their own mapping.
On board help file.
The first "pro" geocaching app for the iPad....release candidate submitted to the app store for review 1/2/2012.
Loading geocache data files in either .LOC or .GPX (best) file formats is easy. Just email them to yourself and open the email on your iPad, touch the attachment and go. Of course iTunes file sharing is also supported for those really BIG data files that might be too big for an email attachment. I'll be posting some videos from the field testing over the Christmas break. Stay tuned!
P.S. If you've never heard about the great sport of geocaching, be sure and visit www.geocaching.com
Now in the app store:
(rhymes with flashlight)
CacheLight is a lightweight version of iGeoCacher and is ideal to get a taste of what geocaching on the iPhone/iPod is like. It is also great for family geocaching adventures as it uses the same .LOC or .GPX files as iGeoCacher and iGeoPad but it has minimal controls and settings for use by younger children or those that want "Just the cache, ma'am, just the cache."
December 2, 2011 - iGeoCacher version 2.7 is now in the App Store. It has a number of bug fixes (occasional "null" file load requiring restart, e al.) Also, I added the ability to delete individual files from within iGeoCacher to make field library maintenance easier.

August 25, 2008 - Breaking News! iGeoCacher "native" for the iPhone/iPod touch is now in the App Store. Check out the videos below to tour various features.
It features local storage of cache data in a built in SQLite DB which makes it possible for iPod Touch owners to join the fun and complete integration with the built in GPS for 3G phones.
This is one of my favorite applications for the iPhone. My daughters love to "geocache" with their dad. It truly is a great family activity. You can read more about it at www.geocaching.com .
One of the issues in geocaching is having all of the relevant cache information with you as you "hunt" for caches. Most folks print off information on their targets and take the paper into the field. There is a lot of interest (and convenience) in going "paperless" by taking the information with you on a PDA or a laptop. Laptops are cumbersome and PDA's are limited but now with the iPhone we have the best of both worlds. This application allows you to easily assemble all of the information you will need as downloaded GPX files from the geocaching site and then you can load them into the iPhone's SQLite database for full access in the field even when out of range of network connectivity. It is now truly easy to go "paperless."
