  1. The next version 2.7.2 will have exactly this feature, but you must use the placeholder [COUNT]. This will be replaced with the count of your logs read by the start of the transfer and is incremented with each Cache.

    • Wow, thanks! I’ve just tried it, as field notes (not to spam exisiting caches!) but the [COUNT] isn’t replaced by any number (it just disappears). Is it supposed to work for field notes too?

      • It only works for “Found It”-Logs, all other types are just replaced with an empty string. You can send the log immediately or in a batch job with many local logs. It works on my phone.

  2. Would it be possible to include a cache counter option? Would increment from an initial number , let’s say, N, (for instead, set from the profile), and would propose
    #{N+1} in the log template (instead of TFTC…)

    and would increment it if and only if a found is logged.

    This is one of the key reasons for which I use field notes instead of direct logs.

    thank you 😉

  3. Hi, I’ve found out that the cache attributes don’t show in the cache description when viewing offline in a pocket query, and I also don’t see the favorite points count, only the blue symbol without any number. I would like to ask if you plan to add these missing features to some of the new version updates – I hope so, very much.

    And one more issue, I don’t know how this is possible so could you please have a look at this one cache (a letterbox in London – I’m planning a visit there and this just caught my eye): http://coord.info/GC5Q7E4 – I’ve downloaded the cache in a pockat query, and opened it in my mobile while offline. In the description I saw the text beginning with “First mentioned around 1170… etc” (the text that begins below the image) – but the important text with the instructions how to solve the cache are in the text ABOVE the image of the church in the listing. It seems to be a normal text, so I cannot guess why I don’t see it in my phone. I’ve resolved it by copying the text and pasting it to the Personal cache note, that shows in your app nicely; however it was only by accident that I noticed this issue and probably there are some more caches with the same problem. Could you please let me know whether it shows you the same when viewing in a phone, or it was just some error in my phone (I don’t suppose that, but still it can be).

    I really like your app very much and it’s the best one for Windows Phone among those I’ve tried, I appreciate that you are constantly working on the updates and bugfixes and release new versions. Hope that the two issues I’ve mentioned above will be resolved soon, too. Thanks

    • The attributes are imported from PocketQueries, I can see them in the details of the caches. The favorite points are not included in the PQs as far I can see in the files.
      Please can you send me the PQ with the mentioned cache, so I can check this error. You find the email in the App / Info by writing a message with “I have a question”.

  4. Nice improvement!

    This being said, I’m a bit nostalgic of the former icon. Now that colourful cache box radiating icon looks weird, amongst other tiles which are basically white shapes on a plain. The previous tile icon was perfect (white silhouette on a homogenous background).
    Would it be possible to come back to a more W8.1/WP8.1 friendly look?

    This is purely a matter of taste and aesthetics, but well, it does matter too ^_^

    Thank you
