Yarrr, time to set sail, me hearties, in search of geocache treasure!

If you have a premium geocaching membership (and who doesn't?) you know the single best benefit is the ability to run pocket queries. Pocket queries generate GPX files. Those GPX files can be loaded onto your GPS device, saving you from hand-entering each geocache.

But wait, there's more! These helpful GPX files also contain a wealth of information on each individual geocache. Name, difficulty, terrain, past logs, hints and more.

It's time. Time to take your plundering to the next level and go truly paperless. iPlunder will allow you to download your multiple GPX files onto your iPhone or iPod Touch. You'll have all the information you need to find those geocaches, right in the palm of your hand. Your printer (and its expensive inks) can finally take a break!

Using the latest iPhone technology, you'll be able to map out the geocaches using street maps or satellite imagery. Using the built in GPS, you'll be able to zero in on the cache and make the find. The geocaches won't stand a chance, matey!

You'll be able to take notes in the field and update the geocache's found status. You can flag caches to find just the ones you want. Update the coords of those multi/mystery caches as you hunt. You can create filters to list or map only the caches you've found, haven't found, didn't find or that you flagged.

Another great feature is the ability to email the details of your daily caching runs to yourself or others. The email includes the found status, time/date stamp, field notes and a link to the geocache's web site, making logging a breeze.

iPlunder will work on both the iPod Touch and the iPhone. You will need internet access to update the map views, but the app will still display the geocaches in their relative positions without access. No matter where some evil micro takes you, this app will still function.

Please note, this app downloads your GPX file from a web site of your choosing. You will need to be able to place your GPX file on a web server, either in your home or on the internet, to import the GPX file. (Don't worry, it's easy, check out our website to see some examples).

Purchase iPlunder today and let your hunt begin, arrgg!

Thanks to all our customers and good hunting, yo ho!
