Today the new version 4.0 has been released. This brings a completely new developed geocaching.com communication and many new features.
One of them is quite interesting: If you have geocaching friends in your address book and set their geocaching name as their nickname, you can call them from L4C. It is possible to filter all downloaded logs of a cache for friends and geocachers in the address book. Finally Telephone Jokers 😉

At the Giga “Hamburg – Im Wandel der Zeit” Jörg gave a session about Looking4Cache as well as at big events in the last years. On his website he published the presentation slides (german language) updated for the new version 3.

Many thanks to Jörg for his engagement!

Looking4Cache has recently received a major update where a redesigned interface and improvements in usability have been introduced. If you have tested L4C before and were not convinced, try it again…
The development of L4C version 4.0 is well processed. This version will bring many new features regarding the geocaching.com connection.
Tonight the new version of Looking4Cache was released. I have already posted about the new features, so here is not much more. Only an info to the current update and informations how it goes on now.
Current update: If the app stays in the start screen for a longer time after the update, give it a few minutes. For very large databases the database migration takes a bit longer. Please don’t quit the app.
Looking4Cache 4.0: I’ve been working on the next big update for a few weeks now. Here I develop the integration in geocaching.com completely new. L4C then uses the new API from Groundspeak, which offers more possibilities. I don’t know if L4C 4.0 will be a nearly 1:1 representation of the previous functions, or if I will be able to integrate new functions (friends, fieldnotes, more trackable details) directly.
With L4C 3.0 (user interface and usability) and 4.0 (data in the background) the all-round renewal is complete and the technical basis for the next years will be established. The already announced feature iCloud Sync, which is most questioned, will follow after 4.0.
I wish you lots of fun with the new version and a good start into spring!
For some months now I’ve been working intensively on a completely redesigned version of Looking4Cache. Soon it will be ready, the new version is in beta test!
This version is mainly about a more structured interface. The design of the app has become clearer and more colorful. The user interface is now completely optimized for all current devices. There are many colors in three basic designs to choose from, for nostalgics ‘Brown (Traditional)’ is of course still available. Buttons are more recognizable and many functions are more accessible.
It is also important to me how easy it is to use the app. Over the years many great functions have been added, but because these are partly very hidden, some don’t know that they exist. Therefore there is now a context menu on almost every page. This contains the most important functions depending on the state of the app. The content of the menu is extended, for example if a geocache is opened (e.g. contact owner and translate), a waypoint is created (e.g. projection) or if the map is open.
A few new functions, which have often been requested over the years, have also been added. It is now possible to store several log templates based on the log type. You can also save filter settings for the offline lists. Only a few new features, but as I said, the purpose of this version is the user experience and the design.
