Groundspeak's Geocaching Application makes high-tech treasure hunting fun,
easy and affordable
SEATTLE, Feb. 18 /CNW/ -- Geocaching.com, the global headquarters for the
sport of geocaching, recently released their official Geocaching iPhone
Application. Developed by Groundspeak, the owner of Geocaching.com, the $9.99
Geocaching Application is available online at Apple's iPhone Apps Store.
Geocaching, the high-tech treasure hunting activity played by millions of
people around the world, no longer requires a dedicated GPS unit to
participate. Geocaching offers direct access to Geocaching.com's database of
over 700,000 geocaches worldwide. Players can now search for nearby
geocaches, read cache descriptions and hints, log finds and post notes from
"We're pleased to make geocaching even more accessible with our new
application," said Shauna Maggs, Groundspeak's Director of Marketing. "Now,
geocachers can spend less time planning and more time playing outdoors. With
this application, geocachers are ready for spontaneous geocaching anytime,
anywhere in the world."
Geocaching takes advantage of the iPhone 3G's internal GPS chip for
navigation and sports a user-friendly interface with a simulated compass
arrow. The application also allows players to save geocache listings for quick
retrieval, look up trackable items and filter out already found geocaches.
Geocaching is best supported by the iPhone 3G but is also compatible with
the iPod Touch and first generation iPhone. To view screenshots of Geocaching,
Groundspeak, Inc. of Seattle, Washington is a privately held company
focused on worldwide location-based entertainment. Groundspeak owns and
operates Geocaching.com, Waymarking.com and Wherigo.com.
