  1. I'm a newer purchaser and haven't yet put the app through many days of use but I really enjoy what it offers. The main reason I looked for an app was the display of solved puzzle caches in the gc.com free app didn't show with corrected coords which made it useless to use the map page in locating solved caches.

     

    In my initial use finding just a couple of caches, I've noticed 2 items for consideration

     

    1) When launching a cache on geocaching.com (... -> View on geoaching.com) , Cachly currently launches in an internal browser. Each time it launches, you need to log in, assuming you want to do something as an authenticated user. Is it possibly to launch an external browser (I use Chrome) as it would remember me as a logged in user. Or maybe if using the internal browser that it persist the necessary gc.com cookie?

     

    2) The photos feature on a cache is great but unlike similar links to Hint, Trackables, etc if there are no Photos, the link is active and you click to see there are no photos to display. Can the app detect there are no photos and disable the option to click through like with no hint, no trackables, etc?

     

    As a side note unrelated to the app, the forums here seem to no longer show replies/views for any posts started in late July. You can see this on http://www.cach.ly/support/index.php?/forum/3-feature-requests/looking at the top posts in the forum where it shows 0/0 for replied and views. 

     

    Many thanks!

     

    Thanks for trying Cachly!

     

    1. The internal browser issue is something I will fix in the next update. Thanks for pointing that out!

     

    2. For the photos, we don't receive the number of photos until we make a call to that API. So unfortunately this isn't possible. 

     

    Thanks for these questions, and I will look into that forum issue!


  2. Is there a way to enter coordinates directly into the app?  For example, if searching for a multi cache, you've found the initial location and then determine the coordinates that take you to the actual cache location and need to enter them in in order to search for it.

     

     

    Absolutely. This is what waypoints are for, and you can set it as a Corrected Coordinate so that the map pin will move to the final location if you want. When you are on the cache details screen, tap the ... button and create a new waypoint. Then, just enter in the coordinates, and save it. Then you will be able to see this on the navigation map for that cache and choose to set it as the target for navigation.


  3. I problem is likely that our tile provider only creates level 17 tiles when they are requested. So, often if someone has not downloaded that area before, those higher level zoom tiles will not be available, which I realize is a frustrating problem.

     

    We are getting close to releasing OSM vector maps which go to zoom level 21 and will fix this issue.


  4. Two thing you could do to make this easier:

     

    First, when tapping on a map pin or seeing a cache in the list view, Multi's will also have an icon with two containers next to each other. Traditions only have one larger container in the icon. Next, you can tap the gear icon on the right side of the search field. This will allow you to remove Multi's from your search, or filter the search in a different way. This way you could remove Multi's altogether if you would like.

     

    Does this help?


  5. They seem to be working with some of the caches. But after I download all tiles, they seem to work zoomed out, but when I try to zoom in, it goes black. As though there is no tiles for that location.

     

    Can you let me know what the location is so I can give it a test?


  6. Hello!

    I have got the same problem. I downloaded the Cachly-apps in to my iPhone 6S. (iOs 9.3.3). When I try to log in with Facebook (as always) and I give my FB-password it asks who can see my posts. I answered that my family. After that it doesn´t go forward because there is no buttons NOT NOW / OK. I have turned off my phone many times and I have canceled the Apps and loaded again. Nothing works. What is wrong?

     

    Can you try creating a geocaching.com account instead of using Facebook? It seems there might be some issues with geocaching.com and Facebook that is affecting Cachly.


  7. Thanks Chris. The map callout has been redesigned and we are going to be implementing this design very soon. It will include distance, as well as favorites, trackables, etc.

     

    For the navigate map, I think this would make a nice Setting that could be turned on and off. Will add it to our feature list!


  8. 1) how to manage bookmarks

    2) how to search cache/personal notes

    3) Field notes are saved in the log. I expected it to be personal

    4) how to save a log as pending

     

    1. Unfortunately the geocaching API only allows us to add caches to a Bookmark list, but not to delete them. I hope they will add this sometime in the future so that third-party apps like Cachly can use it!

     

    2. This isn't currently possible. Do you mean search for only caches with personal notes?

     

    3. Not sure what you mean. Can you explain this?

     

    4. Just go to the Log this Cache screen and then turn the "Send Log Now" option off. This will allow you to save that log as a pending log.

     

    Hope this helps!


  9. in Australia....thought with the time/date selection option it might circumvent the GC.com issue with their 'US-centric' view on caching! haha. I also just thought it was weird the caches logged the day behind, but the TB visits didn't....

     

    It is weird that TB don't have the issue. I have talked with the geocaching.com developers quite a few times about this issue, but they say there isn't a fix for it. :(
