Re: [CentralTexasGeocachers] Re: iPod Touch - available geocaching apps
My son got the iPod touch for Christmas and we installed the Geocaching.com app and it works well. I got a MiFi spot and carry it with us so he can do the apparently (and check in all over the place on Gowalla). Have not done the geosphere since he only gas the basic membership.

- I find that the GC.com app isn’t very useful. Geosphere is an order of magnitude easier (for me) to use, works better without a cell phone connection than the GC app, and the developer is constantly working to add features.
Both apps will work on an iPod Touch, iPad, or iPhone.
If you live in the Austin/Round Rock area, we can arrange to meet for coffee or something, and I'll give you a hands-on demo.
