iCaching 8.0 finally available in the App Store, but…

You might have seen that Apple finally approved iCaching 8.0. But they gave me a warning that they could not ensure that for a next update they might still have problems with the login screen for the API. They want me to remove the ability to sign up for Geocaching.com there, which I cannot do […]

Apple continues messing with the update of iCaching

As you might have read in my previous post, I’m having big difficulties to get the latest update out in the App Store. Apple decided to go on subscription witch hunt, and iCaching is the victim. After the first (granted) appeal, I submitted iCaching again for review. However the second time it was rejected again. […]

App Store review mess – iCaching might break this weekend

iCaching works with an API provided by Groundspeak to enable features like downloading geocaches, pocket queries, placing logs etc. Groundspeak released a new API and will close their old API this weekend (June 1st 2019). I’ve been working on a new version for a big part of last year to support the new API so that […]

Second public beta of iCaching with new Groundspeak API

The clock is ticking towards the end of the old Groundspeak API. Before that time a new iCaching must be released that supports the new API. Recently I posted the first public beta of this version. I’m very thankful for the valuable feedback that was given to that beta version. All points that were mentioned […]

Public beta of iCaching with new Groundspeak API

Last year Groundspeak announced their new API. It has more features then the old one, but is is completely different. This meant a lot of work to rewrite big pieces of code to make iCaching work with the new API (did I mention that it was a lot of work?). For now the features are […]

Mojave day

Yeah, today is macOS Mojave day! In case you are wondering: yes, iCaching runs fine on Mojave. And with the upcoming release (and I have good hopes that will be very soon), it will also shine in the gorgeous dark mode. And there is one more thing….

Highlights of the new version are: Refreshed look using the new round geocache icons Improved Map experience by adding clustering of geocaches when they are overlapping each other. (btw this feature can be toggled on and off […]

iCaching workshop at OFZE2017 Mega Event (Dutch)

Op zaterdag 11 November 2017 is het OFZE2017 Mega Event. In de middag zal ik daar een (nederlandstalige) workshop over iCaching geven. Ik zie er naar uit gebruikers van mijn programma te ontmoeten, tips en trucks te vertellen en natuurlijk ook graag feedback te krijgen op het programma. Voor de workshop moet je je aanmelden […]

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 […]

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 […]
