Update Geocaching v2.7.2

A few new utilities and cleaned up a bit …

Added features:

  • locally logged caches as “Found it” are displayed immediately in this state on the map. The state will be saved only for favorite caches. In PQs it does not work yet.
  • Textual smileys in log text will be replaced with the corresponding graphical icons.
  • The friend function is working again and now has a refresh button to update the number of finds of all friends.
  • The text phrase “[COUNT]” of your log text will be replaced with the number of your found caches and incremented further. However, only if it is a “Found it” log. If not, an empty text is replaced.

Removed features:

  • The GC profile icon on GC.com was reduced to a 48 × 48 image, or will be  downscaled to this size if you add a larger picture. But such a small image can not be used as LiveTile. Some (new) users were not able to use the feature “Use your GC-profile icon as LiveTile”. Luck had only the GC-profiles who still had a big old icon. Since this is not a reliable state, the function has been removed.

  1. So as I said early, I’ve tried this count feature, only with “found it” of course, and it never works :
    a) I’ve added [COUNT] in my log template
    b) I’ve tried to send “as a field note” or not
    c) and systematically, the [count] is erased and not replaced by any number.

    Oh and another thing: for the first cache I want to log (after having launched the app), the log button leads me to “Notes”, not to “log”. Only occurs on the first cache, it’s ok then.
