Let’s all welcome the full-featured Geocaching App for iOS to 2014. We’ve added a refreshed look to match iOS7, plus some fancy new features to make your geocaching experience even better.

- Search by geocache hider – Find geocaches by your favorite hiders from the Advanced Search section.

- GC Code Search – Already know the GC code for the geocache you want to find? Just type it into the search box.

- Adding Catalan and Polish language support

And of course, a hefty round of bug fixes

Version 6.1 (Jun 05, 2013)

In our latest iPhone release, we focused on making finding and logging geocaches easier:
 ・ The buttons for navigating to geocaches and posting logs—the two most-used actions—are now front and center.
 ・ We added easy-to-understand new icons.
 ・ Revised language helps eliminate confusion between saving and sending logs.
 ・ Log types are now shown in the title bar.

We also streamlined a few things:
 ・ Additional features have been grouped together in their own menu in the top-right corner.
 ・ The new “Found it!” button includes a drop-down menu for other log types.

And, of course, no release would be complete without a few bug fixes to help smooth the search for your next geocache.
