Version 4.5 of the Geocaching iPhone Application Now Available

The Geocaching iPhone Application allows you to search for, navigate to and log geocaches all from the convenience of your iPhone.

Version 4.5 of the application, available this week on iTunes, includes a newly implemented advanced search feature. Advanced search allows users to search by location, cache type, keyword, and difficulty and terrain ratings. You can also exclude your finds from search results and filter out the finds of up to four friends. This feature makes it easy for those geocaching in a group to identify which caches no one in the group has found. Premium Members also have the ability to filter the search results so that they can easily identify Premium Member only caches.

This update also simplifies the planning of geocaching outings. Choose a cache that you want to find and add it to one of your multiple allowed lists – such as “caches for the weekend” or “caches near work.” The cache will be added to the list and saved so that you can access it while outside of network coverage.

The latest version of the Geocaching iPhone Application is now available on iTunes.
