Change by Groundspeak makes API import crash [updated]

Update: kuddos to Groundspeak, they reversed the change that broke the import. Should be working fine again.

Unfortunately something seems to be changed on Groundspeaks side of the API. Now most API imports make iCaching crash.

I was notified about this by several users (thanks for that!). I’ve made a hot fix and will submit that as soon as possible to the App Store.

For now, the only workaround is to import old-fashioned GPX files.

Issues with Google Maps, replacement with Apple Maps

Unfortunately there are reports coming in about problems with the Map in iCaching.
Apparently Google changed something on their servers that makes the map sometimes not appear. Users tell me that it spontaneously starts and stops working.
Because this is an issue on their side, I can’t solve it right now. But at the moment I’m rushing to replace the Google Maps with Apple Maps which doesn’t have this issue. And moreover, the map will be faster and behave more smooth when zooming, panning etc. And it will have more features.

After a few days of hard work Apple Maps in iCaching is nearing completion.
If you want, you can download a beta versioniCaching Apple Maps and let me know what you think of it.

It’s been too long…

It’s been way to long since the last post here. But I can assure you, it’s not because nothing happened…

Last month I released iCaching 6.0 (and two smaller fix updates) featuring a vastly improved logging window. It’s now easier than ever to log all your geocache finds (and yes, also your DNFs :-). Start by importing the finds log from your GPS (most paperless GPS have such a file), or by dragging geocaches you found into the list.

Edit your logs with a nice description and the right log type. You can edit multiple logs at the same time by selecting multiple logs in the list.

Add pictures to your logs on the Images tab.

And conveniently log your travelbugs in the Travelbug tab. There you see the TBs available in the cache you visited, to log them as ‘discovered’ or ‘grab’. And you also see the TBs in your inventory, to log them as ‘visited’ or ‘dropped’. You can also log as ‘auto visit’ and the TB will automatically visit all the other logs in your list.

Next to the logging feature, I also improved the way to import your found and owned caches into your library with two items in the new Library menu.

So I hope you all enjoy (i)Caching!
