Do you like geocaching? Want an iPad/iPhone geocaching application that can be used offline abroad?
Geo Bucket is just the thing for you.
The application has a My Map view where the downloaded caches are shown. Click a cache and there will be two actions available in the description. The i button on the left shows details of the cache and the > arrow on the right shows details from geocaching.com if internet connection is available.
There are multiple ways to get cache descriptions to the application.
- You can download geocache descriptions via pocket queries using the embedded web browser in the Browse tab of the application.
- You can download individual cache descriptions directly from www.geocaching.com with the Safari web browser or the embedded web browser.
- You can click the pocket query zip file in the mail application and open the zip directly to the application.
Geo Bucket can be used with a free www.geocaching.com account or a premium account. In the free account you can use only LOC files, which contain only the cache location information. The GXP file contains much more information about the cache, e.g. difficulty, terrain, 25 last logged comments, hint for the cache...
The cache descriptions are stored in the iPad/iPhone memory and you can go caching without a constant internet connection.
