API-support on the horizon

After a very long time of developing, version 4.0 with geocaching Live API support is on the horizon. Last weekend we send the first beta version to Groundspeak for approval of our API implementation. This week we will unveil some of the new features.

Warning: It may take a while before this version is production ready. The last debug work, translations and help file creation will take some time. But the update will be free, so you have something to look forward to….

Maybe one of the most asked features is support for favorite points. While geocaching.com doesn’t include them in pocket query files, there is no way to import these favorite points without using the API. So for version 4.0 they’re in!

You can view them in the cache-list and sort on them if you want:


Add or remove favorite points to and from caches in the Info Tab (on Lion or higher systems):

Of course we also added filtering on the number of favorite points:

And last but not least we added a new Library folder for your favorited caches:

Well, that’s it for today. Keep an eye on the site for more….
