    So, a friend of mine got me and another buddy into geocaching (basically a scavenger hunt with GPS) a couple of months ago, and I scanned the App Catalog for a geocaching app. I use Geocaching for WebOS, which was free, and it works fine. However, my friend has an official one from Geocaching.com on his iPhone that is much better interface-wise, not to mention it has some other features I'd like to see on the app I have, like the ability to read comments on different caches and better utilization of the Google Maps feature. Plus, the compass is not all that great.

    I sent an email to Geocaching.com support a couple of weeks ago to see if they had plans to bring their official app to the WebOS platform and this is the response I received:

    Tim,

    At this time no decision has been made. We are considering several other smart phones now that we have the iPhone and the Android in place.

    Thank you,

    Michael

    Not exactly a no, but not really a resounding yes either. Just thought I'd share this with any other Pre owners who are geocachers that may want to give geocaching.com a little push in the right direction.

    The application Geocaching for webOS has a beta version in the Beta Feeds. You can access it through Preware.

    the one in the app catalog has the ability to read the comments, just hit the little magnifying glass looking icon. Also using it with the free mapping tool is much better imho than the google maps application. I'm new to geocaching but have found this app works well & has blown away a number of my friends that I can do it all from my Pre

    Thanks for that info...shows how much I pay attention lol. Had no idea about that magnifying glass icon and it was right in front of me this whole time. Downloaded the mapping tool and it works really well, too. Now I can make my iPhone-carrying friend jealous lol.
