CacheStats 3.0 Released!Apr 01, 2009

If you like to keep tabs on your Geocaching statistics, you’ll just love CacheStats 3.0!

How has your find rate been holding up over the years? What are your longest streaks? Want to see what it will take to reach your end-of-year goal? CacheStats analyzes your “My Finds” pocket query to find out all this and more!

CacheStats 3.0 Released!

CacheStats is a free Geocaching statistics program created by Doug from LogicWeave, who, when not creating great software spends his spare time Geocaching. I guess you can say that CacheStats was made by a Geocacher for Geocachers! :) The program offers a plethora of statistics presented in an easy-to-read, friendly manner that includes your find rate, averages, yearly data, milestones, a goal calculator, cache info and a whole lot more.

We have had CacheStats listed in the Geocaching Resource Directory since December 2007 but we had never got around to trying it out – our loss. Now, since we have installed it we can’t see caching without it!

Geocaching With Your iPhone Available!Oct 12, 2008

Geocaching with your iPhone has arrived! We mentioned a couple of weeks ago in our 09/28/08 – Geocaching In The News post that Groundspeak had a new application coming that would allow you to Geocache with your iPhone and it is now available!

What’s cool about this application is that it will allow real-time, direct access to GC’s database of Geocaches and shows details such as description, hints, recent logs, trackable item lookups and full navigation capability. You can also geocode addresses, search or look up a cache by it’s GC code.

Geocaching With Your iPhone

Your iPhone 3G uses a combination of GPS, Wi-Fi positioning and cell towers to determine your approximate location then the application queries the GC database in real-time and provides a list of Geocaches near you.

Just think about it – no more downloading, no more preparing, you just cache anytime from wherever you are! This is way too cool!

For more info on Groundspeak’s Geocaching iPhone Application please click here.

Keep on cachin’!
