The use is very simple, press start and wait for the first calculation of an average position. You can verify the result on the loaded map and if you are satisfied with the result, you can save it with the Share function. You can press run many times until you are satisfied with the position.

    Why do you need access to my SD card and photographs and videos that has nothing to do with geocashing so you need to take that off and this new in app purchase crap is about to get blasted. All apps with in app purchase are scammers.

    Great tool that lets you use a smartphone to do 'averaging' for placing a cache. Works very accurately for me.

    The app works ok but the UI could use some work. I was going to purchase the ad free option but it is too pricey. Edit: No worries, GPS Averaging app works just as well for my purposes and the ad free option is more affordable, $1.97 vs $5.07. Uninstalled.
