It worked today when I posted a Found followed by Needs Maintenance using the beta app.
Glad it worked! Thanks to Groundspeak for fixing this issue!
Sorry. So many support emails and beta testers can get me confused.

Of course I would love to help test and sort this out.
Just contact support using the app and ask to be a beta tester. Thanks!
I am very well aware of this issue, and it is something that I have wanted to correct for some time.
It seems like it should be a fairly straight forward thing to fix, you would just need to get the users current time zone and then add the difference in hours to PST. However, I am not convinced it is that easy. After 2.0 is release we will make sure to look into this issue deeper and if you are willing we would love for you to test it.

Since I'm using my iPad in my car as a navigator it would be great to see Cachly as an universal app for iPhone/iPad and also support for side by side so I could run Cachly side by side with example Waze.
We have looked into iPad support, but currently our focus is on iPhone as that is what the majority of our users use. But, we still have it on our feature list.
We do have this feature on our list to add someday. Just not sure when, hope we can add it soon.

That's why I'm thinking it was just taking longer loading an Offline PQ.
But on startup Cachly doesn't load Offline PQ automatically. So that can't be the issue.
I think I have found what is going on and will have my beta testers try it later today.

Will this include opening the links emailed from cache notifications directly on my iPhone? The only option currently is direct into a browser to the cache page and it sucks!
Sorry Bernie, for some reason I was never alerted about this reply.
No, this wouldn't be possible because Groundspeak owns the the coord.info domain, and without being the owner we cannot open those links in Cachly.

I had an issue weeks ago that was taken care of with reinstalling. Something weird had happened in updating.
I thought I had another this weekend as it was taking what seemed like forever to load up and run. But once going it ran fine. When I got home I found the issue to be an offline PQ. So I just need to remember that when using an offline PQ (or whatever it's called), that on my phone it takes a little longer to load up.
Supposed to be upgrading phones sometime in the near future, so maybe that issue will go away for me.
When you had issues, it was during startup? I want to make sure to try to get to the bottom of this, even if it isn't happening anymore.
Groundspeak was gracious enough to work on this issue and it should now be fixed. I just tested it on a cache that wasn't mine and it worked.
Let me know if you guys have success.
This is a known bug that will be fixed in 2.0. Sorry about that!
Ah yes. Very interesting!

For sure it is working
Coincidentally I found some caches where hint was turned upside down in geocaching.com
Oh interesting. What are the GC codes?
Correct. Caches are already decrypted, but you can turn on the Settings option to encrypt them. Then for each cache you would have to choose the decrypt option.

At the moment it crashes no matter what I do. I was at the time trying to access a saved local list but since your post I have tried just as it starts the app to access a random cache and it crashes. I have made a video but don't know how to upload.
Could you email the video to firstname.lastname@example.org?

Thank you for quick response. Our username is Just-us-Two. The app is installed on my iPhone 6 and it's on 4G or wifi happens on both.
The app starts and initially I can operate it. Select offline list etc then the app freezes for several seconds before crashes returning me to start screen.
Can I assume that it always crashes when you have tapped an offline list and it is trying to load the map?
Looking in our error logs I am seeing your crash so I will get working on fixing it.
Is this an Offline List that you could share with me, such as a bookmark list or PQ? If not, how did you create it? I want to try to replicate it on my system.

When it's amongst other icons of caches it gets lost. So yes difficult to see and locate.
I will see what we can do about adjusting that color and still making it fit with the look of the app.
Very sorry that this is happening!
We have not seen this issue before and have not had any other reports of this happening, so I want to get to the bottom of it. A few questions:
- What is your GC username?
- Does it always crash on startup? If not, did it consistently crash in one spot in the app? Where?
- Are you offline, on Wifi or cell data?
- What iPhone do you use?
Thanks, and again, very sorry about this issue.
Correct. It is not yet in the current beta. Hopefully this week. Yes, there is a beta users forum, do you see it?

I am happy to see cache note there in the beta version!
I am not crazy about the fact that instead of "a preview of that note" I got directly into the edit mode that popped up the keyboard and ate half the screen - inconvenient with longer notes.
But maybe you meant the first words of the note that fit after the "Cache Note" on the main screen. In my cases, this was never helpful and often looked like a bug: what are those characters do there? I am looking at one cache now, and the line reads:
Cache Note WP1 = N47... >
Not sure this feature is worth the clatter is adds.
Talking about clutter, the distance to the cache is often wrong (zero) and never helpful to me. I see why it is useful in list view, but otherwise...
The major reason you see a preview of the text after the "Cache Note" label is so that you know you have entered text in there. That is the reason. It is a visual way, other than the icon to see the text. I do not think it detracts in any way and is only an advantage.
I have never seen the distance be wrong either. Can you replicate this?
When logging you can just use the *|owner_name|* keyword (press and hold for the option or tap the ... button) to automatically insert the owners username into your log. You can also create a Log Text default in Settings so that you never have to do this manually!
This has not been forgotten! It will be fixed in our 2.0 update coming later this month.
Minor bug - Deleting one of a double logged as found cache makes the checkmark go away

Good find! Will get this added to our bug list.
