New OpenCaching app provides even more free geocaching options

OpenCaching-logo-stacked As OpenCaching.com continues to grow, we're thrilled to announce the release of OpenCaching, the official geocaching app for OpenCaching.com for iPhone and Android devices. Designed to complement www.OpenCaching.com, our free online community for creating, sharing and finding geocaches around the world, the OpenCaching app allows you to search and filter for caches right from your smartphone – all without any membership fees or subscriptions.

These apps are currently available at no charge. Garmin OpenCaching is in the App Store on iPhone or at http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/garmin-opencaching/id429776248?mt=8&ls=1# and OpenCaching can be found in the Android Market Place or at http://market.android.com/details?id=com.garmin.android.apps.opencache.

“This mobile option lets cachers find the newest and nearest geocaches wherever they may be, and just as with OpenCaching.com, we look forward to the app’s continuous evolution as we implement feedback and suggestions from cachers themselves,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin’s vice president of worldwide sales.

Along with the ability to access your account, log new finds and see caches via street maps or satellite view – and with full cache descriptions, hints and logs – OpenCaching for iPhone allows you to share your favorite caches with friends via email, and Android users can share using Twitter, Facebook and other favorite social networks. Thanks to peer review and community ratings – which rate the “Awesomeness” of your cache through OpenCaching.com’s handy bull’s-eye system – geocachers will know exactly what to expect before heading out for their next adventure.
