What's New in Version 4.2.2

The following issues have been addressed in this new version:

-Fixed a new memory leak exposed by changes to iOS4.2. This should fix performance issues many users have been seeing since the latest iOS update.

-Fixed the application's behavior when it's locked on certain screens. The application should now behave perfectly when being locked or restored from the background.

-Fixed a case where users with an apostrophe in their name couldn't view their personal data while offline.

We really appreciate all of the positive feedback in the iTunes store. Thank you!

Please keep the suggestions coming and we will continue delivering the very best of geocaching for your iPhone and iPod Touch.

Happy Geocaching!

Awesome App/ Best one yet.

:
4.0 update is by far the best tool for geocaching. With this update and the new iphone4 there is no need for any other device to find geocaches.

4.0.1 update works better than expected. I have had no issues with using this app. It is the only way I find caches.

After updating the iPhone 4 to version 4.2.1 every caches destination coords are all zero's. Can't use it now until this is fixed.

Update 12/3/10
With the latest update, everything is working great again.

4.2.2 update.
Everything is working awesome on this app now.

2/5 stars

Too Expensive!!!

:
Can only be used in wi-fi areas! (ipod touch) Waayyyy too expensive. It's an ok app if you have an iphone and a lot of extra cash.

5/5 stars

Still one of my favorite apps

:
Works great and makes geocaching around the city very convenient. Must try.
