    Longitude changed from W to E

    Thanks Keith for reporting this, and thanks for the GC code. I will look into getting this fixed.

    When opening an offline list while still online, it won't make any requests to the server, it will load those caches locally. However, it will try to load maps while you are still online. Offline map downloading should work, just make sure to download the adequate zoom level so you will have enough resolution when offline. We are working on a simplified offline map downloader were you won't have to worry about zoom levels or map type.

    Friends show up on web site but not on iPhone app

    Sorry for the confusion. Are you meaning in these support forums when you said Cachly web account? If so, the support forums are not linked to the Cachly app. The friends within Cachly are only accessible within the app. Let me know if I didn't clarify or if you have any other questions!

    DNF map icon

    This is something that we are looking into doing, the major issue here is that the Groundspeak/geocaching.com API that Cachly users does not provide DNF data. So we will have to figure out a way to store this data on our own server, and it wouldn't be retroactive.

    Friends show up on web site but not on iPhone app

    Geocaching.com friends and Cachly friends are different. Unfortunately the API that Groundspeak/geocaching.com provides doesn't give us the ability to show the friends that you have on geocaching.com. So, instead you can save Cachly friends within the app.

    Can't access Chat

    Hi GeoKeys57. Chat isn't something that was supported, so I removed that tab. Sorry about the confusion!

    Feedback and query on map orientation

    Ah, OpenCycle Map. That one I have noticed is slow to load and it seems it is that way on Wifi too. I think that the map provider just has a slow server. I will be emailing Julie back in a few about her questions. Strange about the freezing. I will be looking into that issue. Could you email our support email address so that I can ask a few more questions? Thanks!

    Feedback and query on map orientation

    What map provider were you using? Map tiles will be downloading directly from their providers, so I am not sure what the slowdown would be. Have not seen this issue myself. Absolutely. In an upcoming version this screen will be completely changed basically making it a one tap download that users won't have to think about. It will also download all zoom levels as we are changing the algorithm to only download tiles in a radius around caches. This feature can be turned on by tapping the current location button to toggle its "modes". There is No Follow, Follow and Follow with Heading. Both these have been requested by other users as well and are something we are working on. Showing that a cache has been found, but not yet submitted the log wouldn't be hard. The DNF feature is something a bit harder since Groundspeak doesn't support this in their API. So we will need to use our own server to handle the DNF's for all users. Great idea about the zooming. Will get this added to our feature list. Absolutely. Working on some additional ways to show accuracy throughout the app. Should be included in our next release. Thanks for using Cachly! I highly value user feedback, so I really appreciate all of your comments and questions. My goal is to make the best Geocaching app out there, and this can't be done without users help!

    Mapsforge Vector Maps

    Different offline maps options is something that we are actively working on, and vector maps is for sure something being worked on. I will take a deeper look into this solution and let you know what I think. Thanks!

    Save Photos

    Currently Cachly doesn't save the photos to the camera roll, just to the uploaded log. But, I would be happy to build in the ability to have them saved in the Camera Roll. Will get that added in an upcoming version!

    Formatting of cache description

    Strange. Line breaks should be preserved. I will dig a bit deeper and get this fixed in our next release. Thank you for reporting it!

    Offline Bookmarks

    Thanks for downloading Cachly! If you tap on the More tab, then go to Bookmarks, and to a bookmark list, you will see the ... button on the top right. This will allow you to download it as an offline list with maps. Is this what you were hoping for? Yes, live maps are coming, but first we are making some changes to offline map downloads that will make things much easier and faster. Let me know if you have any other questions!

    We are a very small development team, so at this point focusing on iOS only makes the most sense.

    Can't sign in

    Hi Jenn, we will be adding the "Login with Facebook" option in our upcoming 1.0.7 version of Cachly. Sorry about the inconvenience!

    Suport for GCA caches

    Hi Louise, Cachly has been tested with a number of GCA GPX files and everything was working correctly. I would be more than happy to use your file and fix those issues ASAP and have the fixes in Cachly 1.0.7. I will email you too so that I can get the file. Very sorry about the issues that this caused. I have every intention of fully supporting GCA caches, so I would like to fix this. Thanks!

    Souvenirs and Messages

    Glad to hear that! Tell your friends!

    Search along a route?

    No, this isn't currently possible. However you could create a Pocket Query along a route and then import this into Cachly. Yes, after you have loaded some caches you will see that the refresh button (top right of the caches map screen) has a ... inside. This means that there are more caches to load. Tap that to continue loading more and more.

    Map Icons

    No, there are no plans to change the map icons at this time. In the upcoming 1.0.7 version of Cachly, tapping the current location will copy the coordinates into the iOS clipboard, which can be very useful. It isn't possible to place a Geocache from any app out there, even the official Groundspeak app. They want everyone to go through the website. However, we are working on a feature to be able to pre-create a cache using Cachly. So you would be able to compose an email with all the details you would need to create a cache once you are able to go to geocaching.com to do so. Hope this helps.

    Map Icons

    Thanks! There currently isn't a way to change the map pin icons. Cache types are represented by their color, but you can see the geocaching icons when you tap on the pin, or view them in list view. If you are seeing only Traditional caches then you must be a geocaching.com Regular user. Just like the Geocaching official app, Groundspeak limits us to only showing Traditional caches unless you are a Premium member of geocaching.com.

    Souvenirs and Messages

    Thank you! Glad you are liking using Cachly! Souvenirs are something that is on our feature list and will be out in an upcoming version of Cachly. Messages however is something that Groundspeak hasn't provided for third-party developers, so at this point we are not able to implement it. If, in the future this changes we will be sure to add it right away.
  22. I will be attending GeoWoodstock this year and will be promoting Cachly in a number of ways. Let me know if you will be there so we can meet-up!

    No access to photos

    At some point did you Deny permission to your camera and photos? Either way, check your iOS Settings > Privacy > Photos to make sure that Cachly has permission to access your photos. You are using the current version of Cachly, correct?

    Live map

    Glad you love using Cachly! Live Maps are something that have been on our Feature Roadmap for a while, and we hope to get it added very soon. New Offline Maps will be first and then we can start focusing on some more large features like Live Maps.
