  1. Hi,

    After I updated to iOS 15 (and now 15.0.1) I'm experiencing flickering / reloading of tiles when using custom tile maps. I've tested two different sources and I'me experiencing the same issue with them both. If i use Offline-maps or any of the built in maps the issue goes away. The issue only shows up when navigating to a cache. When I'm only the map there is no issue.

    The tile maps that I've tested (they are only of Sweden):

    You can see a recording of the issue here:

    I'm using:
    iPhone 12 Pro
    iOS 15.0.1
    Cachly 7.0.5 (1)

    One of the big differences here is that the official app can load 500 caches on the map at a time, and we have a max of 100. The official app also does not have a daily limit on number of caches loaded, but partner apps do.

    Because of these two limitations, I have been hesitant to include this feature. However, I get the request more and more so I am looking into how I can adequately warn the user of the inherent risks when using a live loading map. That being said, I am only investigating the possibility at this point and don't have it planned for a release.

    I'm really looking forward to this feature!

  3. Hi,

    I've been using Cachly for a while now and realized that it would be nice to have the ability to choose it the buttons on the map should be on the right side (like now) or the left side. I am right handed but using the phone in my left hand which in some cases makes it hard to reach the buttons on the right side with my thumb.

    What do you think about a setting to let the user decide which side to place the buttons?

    Kind regards

  4. Don't know if my title is right, but I've been using Cachly for a while now (finally decided to move from Looking4Cache Pro) and for the most parts I like Cachly better.

    One thing i really really miss from Looking4Cache is that when I set different modes like tracking my movement, tracking my movement with my direction of travel being up etc it will be "locked". In Cachly you just need to touch the screen and the current mode resets to not track. This often happens when I'm trying to zoom in/out or just when I unintentionally touches the screen.

    I like the fact that I can move around (with my finger) on the map and it resets back to my location after just a second or two. 

    In my opinion it would be nice if it was possible to lock the different modes for example if you long press the icon it would lock the current mode until you long press it again.

    What do you think about that idea?

  5. When looking att photos in "full screen" you need to press Done in the top right corner to exit back to the gallery or log. Here it would be nice if you could just swipe down or up on the photo to close it instead of needing to push the Done-button, most of the iOS-apps that I use that shows photos in full screen has this kinda feature and I like it a lot.

  6. One thing that I personally found out was quite annoying is that when I've zoomed in on the map to show as much as I want and then pushes the arrow for tracking me the map centers to my location and zooms in a lot. I would rather have it to center my location on the map without zooming in or out.

    One place where this is extremely annoying is when I'm in my car driving and have moved the map around and then pushes the arrow so it starts to track my movement and zooms in, it's quite hard to zoom back out again while I'm moving around on the map.  So turning off the tracking and setting the right zoom level and then turning the tracking on again would be awesome.

  7. I love the 5.1 update of Cachly, thank you so much Nic. Even though I still miss a feature to load caches automatically while panning around on the map it works quite well for me to load in GPX-files with all the caches of the areas where I'm going to be. Side note: I've also been stress testning Cachly a lot for a few days and I'm quite impressed by the performance to import GPX-files containing up to around 10 000 caches. I've also tried to import almost 200 000 caches, still impressed by the performance even though it took me över 24 h and when it was done Cachly was kinda slow, but not unusable. :)

    Now over to the issue that I'm experiencing:

    When I'm running Cachly on my iPad in landscape and set Cachly to follow my movement and to have my direction of travel upwards Cachly kinda fails. :( It works on my iPhone in portrait mode though. Also a side note: I've been experiencing this exat same issue with both Looking 4 Cache a few years back but they have fixed it. So I'm hoping you can find a solution to this. :)

    Here is a video of the issue:

    Even though this works in the stand alone Apple Maps app, iOS does not provide a way to do this when those maps are included in apps like Cachly.

    However, our Premium Offline Maps and Google Maps do offer this way of zooming in.

    Hopefully iOS will change this in the future.

    Oh, I see. So this feature cant be done on custom tile-maps?

    You can run other apps over top of Cachly, would this help you? Currently on iPad Cachly requires full screen.

    Sorry for the late reply on this. But running an app like Waze on top of Cachly isn't a good user experience cause it covers to much of the Cachly interface.

    I'm hoping that you will consider to implement full multitasking side by side support. :)

    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.

    Of course I would love to help test and sort this out. :)
