Tonight we unveil another aspect of the API-implementation in the next iCaching: the pocket query dialog got a complete make-over.
In the old version, you got a web view with the pocket query page of the geocaching website.
The new version lists all available pocket queries in a clear list. Queries that are new, or generated after the last download, are marked with a ‘new’ badge.
Each pocket query can be downloaded as ‘traditional’ zipped GPX-file by clicking the ‘Download File’ button. This is blazing fast, but doesn’t give you the new cache properties like favorite points etc.
The other method is ‘Download data’. Then all cache-data is downloaded through the API with all new properties included. The downside is that it’s (much) slower, therefore we offer both options.
