    Thanks Nic, will submit the feedback to Apple.

    Editing cache note loses selection

    Cachly has a handy feature, that when you select a cache pin on the map, and view the details (e.g. log), then tap the back arrow, you’re returned to the map screen with the cache still selected — it still has the summary details ‘balloon’. But if one of your actions when viewing the cache is to edit the personal cache note, when you return to the map no cache is selected — so you can’t tell what cache you were looking at. (Offline list, offline map)

    Log shows ‘Tomorrow’ when found today

    A minor bug, possibly only for us folk so far ahead of UTC (currently +13): today’s the 27th a find log submitted through Cachly, with the default date of 27th view the cache summary page from the Live screen, and the logs will say ‘Tomorrow’ go into the logs, and the last find shows today’s date (27th)

    Trackables map needs map selection

    I usually work with offline maps, which means I can only see a single country. If I go into the Trackables screen and select View Travels, most of the map is blank, and you have to switch back to Live/Offline screen to change it. Would be handy if View Travels map had the same map selection icon in the bottom right as the Live/Offline screens.

    Battery Frugality

    Not using Cachly to navigate seems a pretty niche use of it. You could turn off Cachly’s GPS access in iOS’s privacy settings.

    Merge/Copy Order of lists

    Hi, when copying or merging an offline list, the list of possible offline list destinations to copy/merge the selected list into, is in a different sort order from the main Offline lists screen. Would be easier to follow if they were the same Cachly 3.1

    Merge/Copy Order of lists

    I have 7 lists, but that jumps to around 15 when I'm doing PQ imports… which I then merge. It's behaving for me now too. I wonder if it was triggered by importing PQs and a My Finds, and restarting Cachly has fixed it?

    Insert CO Name

    It's in the current 3.1, it's very annoying.
  9. Hi, I like to keep areas around home in offline lists and up to date, so they're always available for unplanned caching where there's no cell coverage. I currently have 6 PQs with around 800 caches each, covering different geographic areas (some overlap). Every week I delete the 6 old offline lists and download the new PQs. Wondering if a better workflow would be a one of combining of the offline lists into a single list, then weekly using Cachly's Update Caches function on all 5,000 caches. Plus importing a single PQ into that list to pick up any new caches placed. Thinking this would save quite a bit of time, plus allow me to view all the offline caches at once. I guess I'd have to keep the original PQs around in case I needed to start again in Cachly. Interested in thoughts.

    Workaround Access Token Expired

    Good to see you managed this in 3.1

    Workaround Access Token Expired

    I've posted in the GS forums the nuisance and decreased security that having to reauthenticate every 90 days represents (https://forums.geocaching.com/GC/index.php?/topic/345370-feature-request-dont-expire-access-token-after-90-days/). Is there anything Cachly could do to make this less painful… Maybe save my password and reauthenticate automatically? or allow me to use Safari's saved password on the GS login screen?

    White text on green background does not work

    iOS does have a built in magnifying glass for the screen, which works in every app including Cachly. https://www.wikihow.com/Magnify-Your-iOS-Device-with-Accessibility-Zooming

    Prompt before closing Cache Notes

    The other issue I've struck recently is Cachly's version of the note can get of sync with the website… presumably because it's saved in Cachly's database. If I don't realise there's 2 different versions, then any edits to Cachly's version can overwrite changes on the website.

    Default map position

    Hi, when looking at an offline list, Cachly normally centres the maps on the caches. But if the caches are spread around the world — so they can't all be shown at once — the default starting position on the map seems random. Would be good if the map could start at the current location, or maybe where the most caches are. e.g. An imported My Finds is centered on the other side of the world from me, not my current location or where the most finds are.

    Include "Date-time of last successful cache retrieval"

    Does Groundspeak really reset the counters at random points in time? I would have expected the reset to be midnight Pacific Time… which would make it easy to know when you can download more.

    disappearing icon when zooming in

    I've struck this, I don't think it's been every time. It's like the zoom levels which have already seen the original coordinates leave the cache there but invisible, while zoom levels which haven't seen the cache will display it at the updated coords. Offline map FWIW.

    Prompt before closing Cache Notes

    Is it worth replacing with: an edit button, or automatically switching from 'browse' to 'edit' when you tap — like in Notes, or an undo/revert button Worried the note could be changed accidentally with no way to undo it. The first 2 suggestions would also make viewing longer notes easier. Cheers

    Best workflow for 5,000 offline caches

    Thanks guys, things to think about

    Where does Cache Note come from?

    Oh that's nice… thanks!
  22. Hi, I've been reluctant to use the personal cache notes on geocaching.com because there doesn't seem to be a way to back them up… but it looks like I can utilise Cachly for that If I examine a PQ or My Finds by hand, the cache note doesn't appear to be present in the file. But when I import a PQ or My Finds into Cachly, the note appears to be saved in the offline database. When importing, is Cachly making an extra query to geocaching.com to pick up the cache note?
  23. Hi, I've been experimenting with filters recently… seems like a useful & powerful feature. I don't like losing the extra screen real estate when a filter is active… maybe instead of the additional 'Showing x of y' line, it could be 'x/y' and replace the filter icon in the line above? it look me a while to find Has Cache Note… searches in other applications would instead combine this under Cache Note to be Logic=Contains, Begins with, Present, Not Present, etc.

    Changing filters buggy

    Hi, there's some bugs when changing filters: Start off with no filters Add Filter Has Cache Note=Yes Done Now tap on the new filter to edit it Change to Cache Note Leave String to match empty and Logic=contains Tap Done The list screen still shows Has Cache Note=Yes, but tapping through reveals Cache Note contains Maybe because an empty search string shouldn't be allowed? Start off with no filters Add Filter Cache Type Leave 2nd Type line empty Tap done An error will correctly be displayed Tap OK Tap Done a 2nd time Cachly will crash Similarly: Start off with no filters Add Filter Cache Type Leave 2nd Type line empty Tap done An error will correctly be displayed Tap OK Change the 1st Type line to Cache Note The screen will now show every available test: Yes/No, Matching, Logic, Number, etc. Cachly 3.0.3, iOS 10.3.3

    Filters: UI real estate and amalgamation

    OK, fair enough iPhone SE and iPad. From a rough measurement it's 10% of the map space gone
