iCaching is an indispensable tool for geocachers with a Mac. Import, organize, manage, explore and export your geocaches with iCaching! A native, fast Mac App. Tested on Mavericks, Yosemite, El Capitan and Sierra.
====== Import ======
Import GPX- or LOC-files using the import button, or drag and drop them into iCaching.
Import Pocket Queries directly from Geocaching.com from the Pocket Query window. iCaching also notifies you when new PQs are ready for download.
Each Pocket Query will be imported into it's own folder.
iCaching also supports the Geocaching Live API. You can query geocaches from Geocaching.com using all kinds of filters.
====== Organize, manage and explore ======
Explore your geocache library with the special 'Library'-folders. View your finds, favorited caches and so on. Sort on all properties of the caches.
You can easily add folders and organize your geocaches with drag and drop. Each cache has only one instance in the database.
The tabs under the geocache list show the different aspects of the selected geocache. The Info tab shows the metadata. In this tab you can also add your own note, corrected coordinates, like or dislike a cache and add or remove Favorites.
The description tab shows the offline description. The Webpage tab shows the geocache page on Geoaching.com.
The additional waypoints (for multi's) are show on the waypoints tab, with descriptions and a map.
Logs are shown on the logs-tab. Every time you import a new version of the same geocache, new logs are added to the loglist.
The last tab shows the Images that are related to the cache. You can easily export them to Garmin devices for reference 'in the field'.'
The Map window displays geocache(s) and additional waypoints on a map. This map is interactive; select caches or waypoints on the map to view their properties in iCaching and vice-versa. You can switch between map types, including Open Street Maps.
An extended search window helps you to sort out caches by all properties of the cache. You can save your filter as a Smart Folder, for later use.
iCaching can contain multiple home- or centerlocations and calculates distance and bearing from there for all geocaches on the fly.
GCVote is build in. iCaching queries for GCVote on every import, and you can rate a cache on GCVote when you have a GCVote-account.
====== Export ======
iCaching can export to GPX, GGZ, CSV and to a lot of other file-formats
You can also export directly to a whole list of GPS-devices (Garmin, Magellan, DeLorme), including paperless devices like e.g. Garmins Oregon series.
====== Logging ======
After a cache trip, easily log your finds with iCaching. You can read the visits file from your paperless GPS.
iCaching also provides the ability to log Travelbugs and to add pictures to your logs.
To make usage of the entire range of iCaching functionalities you need a premium membership at geocaching.com

The Best! - I’ve been using iCaching for almost a year, and it just keeps getting better and better. Every time a new challenge is published I go to iCaching to see if I already qualify; and if I don’t qualify, I switch one of the compound filters from “found” to “not found” and get a list of caches that satisfy the challenge requirements. As mentioned in other reviews, being a premium Groundspeak member provides the option for pocket queries, which iCaching imports flawlessly on demand. I especially like the feature that allows me to load the GPSr with only those puzzle caches that I’ve solved, and it even transfers any notes I’ve created on the iCaching page to my Garmin 62s. Creating custom gpx files is easy, and very useful in other mapping applications. Don’t be deterred by the few negative reviews for the app, those reviewers should have just posted a DNF and tried again later.
USELESS - Completely worthless. Importing the caches is difficult at times impossible. Can't print a decent list Gotta go through five steps just to do one thing. worst $15.00 dollars I have spent. I hate writing reviews but I am so frustrated with this program I feel like I have to.

Best software for geocachers with a Mac - Enjoy iCaching as it helps to sort my pocket queries and I am able to perform multiple logging when I have found many caches in a day. It has a lot of features. It is great for us Mac users.
