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.
There is a free version to try it out: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=nl.lemval.goldhunt.free
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). Note that 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 filters with which the cache list can be filtered on distance from a certain location, type, difficulty, etc. There is an active filter for the list view as well as an active filter 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. Some German caches will be supported in the new release. As soon as these tweets cease to exist, the application will not have any function anymore.
- Check directly on Geocaching.com for new caches (optional; Premium GC service) - en route
- Poll mail account for configured notifications on GC (optional; Premium GC service)
- Search Twitter.com for new cache publications (optional; Dutch only, very limited German support)

* If you are a Geocaching.com *Basic* 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.
