Add this app to your lists
GoldHunt helps you to find new caches in your area and allows you to get on the road for gold, silver and bronze. Not only useful for the hunters of prices, but also for the active geocacher, this application will show all newly published caches from Twitter (Dutch), your mail notifications or directly from the website.

This application works with Geocaching.com to search new caches and load cache information.

Basic members of this site can see distance, location and details of a cache, but can only load full details of three caches a day (description, waypoints, images). Also, information about premium caches is very limited.

Via notifications you'll be alerted about new caches. The interval for checking is configurable, although short intervals have drainage consequences.

The application offers creation of profiles with which the cache list can be filtered on distance from a certain location, type, difficulty, etc. There is an active profile for the list view as well as an active profile for alerting.

Note! For Basic members this application can only rely on messages on Twitter in Dutch, based on reviewers in Belgium and the Netherlands. As soon as these tweets cease to exist, the application cannot function anymore.

Current functionality
- Check directly on Geocaching.com for new caches (optional; Premium GC service)
- Poll mail account for configured notifications on GC (optional; Premium GC service)
- Search Twitter.com for new cache publications (optional; Dutch only)
- Notifications
- Filters for viewing, notification and searching
- Show cache details with description, hint, images, etc.
- Navigation to the waypoints of the cache

Warning!
* If you are not a Geocaching.com Premium Member, this application will offer very limited functionality, unless you're looking for caches in the Netherlands and Belgium.
* Only Premium Members can make use of the online search of new caches.
* Mail polling feature requires specifying notifications on GC.com. Useful when sharing.

So if you are a Basic Member, I advise you not to buy this application. Use GoldDigger instead.
