So Long “Intro” — Meet the Geocaching® App

Geocaching Intro, the baby app we first introduced to the world in 2013, is all grown up! In the time since it said its first ‘hello’, we’ve added a host of great features to the app for players of all experience levels.

With today’s addition of Lists, ‘Geocaching Intro’ has officially outgrown its name. So we’re renaming it. Nothing too out there. We’re kind of traditional that way.

Without further ado, we are excited and proud to introduce the Geocaching® app!

Here are 4 things you may not know about the newly named Geocaching® app:

  1. The updated design actually makes using the app outside, better. A crazy expectation for a game played outdoors, we know. The visual contrast and updated styling make reading geocache details easier wherever you are.
  2. The app is best with Premium. Premium members can find any geocache in the world. Plus, they gain access to tools for sorting and filtering geocaches as well as more intuitive workflows for finding all geocache types.
  3. Players can move seamlessly between Geocaching.com and the app. For example, lists that you create on Geocaching.com will automatically appear in the Geocaching® app. Same goes for conversations in the Message Center.
  4. We are not done with this app. We are actively seeking feedback from the geocaching community to help us improve it. Together, we think we can make this app the ultimate mobile tool for geocachers!

A Better Way to Find Geocaches

Finding a Multi-Cache or EarthCache can be a good challenge! Thankfully, new tools for advanced geocaches, like adding waypoints or sending photos to geocache owners, leave the challenge where it belongs — in the thrill of finding a geocache.
