Bookmark sync feature

Hello iCachers, It’s been a long time since the last post here. This summer I quietly released iCaching 10.0 with a very great new feature: automatic sync of bookmark folders. When you have bookmark lists on the Geocaching.com website, they will now automatically appear in the left pane of iCaching. Changes you make to the […]

Happy birthday; iCaching 10 years!

Unbelievable, but it is already 10 years ago that iCaching was released in the (then brand new) Mac App Store. As geocacher and Mac user I was at that time searching for a tool to help me prepare geocache trips. But there were only a few very limited tools available. When I prepared a trip […]

Personal note and coordinate sync

Hi dear iCaching people, Last week a new version of iCaching rolled out. The tentpole feature of this version is the new sync for personal notes and corrected coordinates. This was a much requested feature. At first I was hesitant to build it, because of the fact that it will overwrite the values that you […]

Version 9.0.1 out, problem solved :-)

Last week I proudly released version 9.0 of iCaching with a whole new look, fitting in macOS Big Sur and native support for the new M1 Apple silicon Macs. Unfortunately, the new search item on the toolbar appeared to crash on machines that are not upgraded to macOS Big Sur yet, even though Apple promised […]

It is coming….

Today is a very special day, Apple will tonight announce the first Macs with their own processor replacing Intel processors. I also expect them to announce macOS 11 Big Sur availability somewhere this week. The good news for iCaching: I am almost ready with a new look fitting in the new Big Sur design language. […]

Unexpected crashes using Map functions in macOS Catalina

Since the release of macOS Catalina some users report crashes when using one of the map views in iCaching. Unfortunately these are caused by a bug in macOS. When using those views, the system should ask permission for iCaching to be able to access the location services. However, instead it crashes the application. I reported […]

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 […]
