Groundspeak extended the cutover to the new API until June 1 so everything has been pushed out a month. So now the new app will be available early May instead which gives me more time for bug fixes and tweaks.

I changed the notice to June 1, but maybe that's not working. I'll create a new notification. Thanks.

Yeah, maybe best to reinstall. I'm really not sure how/why Google does some of that. Version 9.1.4 should automatically download if you allowed it in Android settings.

Yeah... new name that is similar but slightly different. I plan to announce that soon... still need to reserve domain names.

Speaking of updates
1) How is that done?  Google Play knows I am still at 9.1.1, but doesn't offer to update to 9.1.4.  I assume best approach is to delete and reinstall?
2) Looking forward to the new version soon.  Have you picked a name for it yet so we can watch for it?

The Geooh Live Notice posted in March stated "Geooh Live will stop working May 1" and "The new version of Geooh will become available in April so you can download it as a replacement."
May 1st is only a few days away and I have not seen any further info on a new version being released. What's up?

Yeah, depends on personal use and how someone caches. Large lists for GSAK would be the norm in my mind because that software is designed to manipulate large lists of data for export. For a geocaching app out in the field a large list seems odd and confusing as to the use case. Geooh is designed to help you find caches using rich displays, sorts, filtering, FTF/DNF/LNY badges that require more preprocessing to display a list... so a big list can be done, but it will take time. The apps that show lists quickly are also not doing as much for the informational displays and realtime list manipulation.

Use the tool best suited to your caching style.

I found your comment about Geooh live not made for large offline list interesting. I was wondering how rare 4000 caches in a list was and decided to ask in a Norwegian geocaching forum.

51 persons answered that they only use live functionality and never store caches for offline use
3 persons used lists with 2000 caches
9 persons used lists with 5000 caches
9 persons used lists with 10000 caches

That's a 5/2 ratio between live usage and large list usage.

Actually, the new API doesn't even have that option any more and will always exclude caches in the ignore list for every search. That "feature" (or removal) will be part of the new Geooh soon to be released.

you need to copy this parameter from the search screen into the settings section for the live screen.

that is all.

Sorry, but Groundspeak's API requires text in the log before it will accept it.
