Version 0.8.1 officially available as first version in the App/Play Stores

The first idea for developing the new app was born at a Geocaching event in November last year. Almost immediately, I believe in the same night, the first step was made. Today is the day. With the former test version 0.8.1 the #GCWizard has reached a maturity level that allowed us to release the app…


Coordinate Parser

The coordinate parser is part of the coordinate functions. It is used with the coordinate insert function and with the variable coordinate tool. Its job is to interpret a meaningful coordinate (latitude and longitude) from a text. Coordinates can be specified in various formats. The parser is limited to: DEC (decimal degree; DD.DDD°)DEG (degree, decimal…


Variable Coordinate

If in a multi or mystery geocache not all variables for the solution of the final coordinates can or could be determined, it is sometimes a good idea to simply look at all the open options, maybe even visualized on a map. In this way, some options can often be excluded (Of course, the possibilities…

Creation of symbol tables

Up to now, the symbol tables have been supplied almost exclusively by volunteers. At this point I would like to thank the tireless Äggsbärde for his great effort! The background is that we are completely busy with the programming and we can’t do the graphical work on the side. Therefore we are happy about any…


Alphabet Values: Now with special characters and custom alphabets

Perhaps the most desired feature – and the one we have most vehemently rejected – is the support of umlauts in the letter values. Why were ÄÖÜß not included so far? 1. it is not defined how ÄÖß is encoded. We know 3-4 possibilities of interpretation alone. This was also shown again in the countless…


Test Release 0.8.0

Well, a lot has happened lately. I think we could write another really nice, long text again, don’t you? 🙂 I’m happy to say that version 0.8.0 is finally on its way! All registered Android alpha testers can already download it from the PlayStore, the iOS testers should receive their version later today. All other…


Test Release 0.7.1

Hello everybody! This week the test version 0.7.1 has been released. And what can I say? For me personally, this is the first version of #GCWizard that I really love. For the first time the app feels really round. Yes, compared to GCC, it still lacks a few features, but we think that it is…


Compiled iOS Version

Finally. FINALLY, we did it! After a few thousand certifaction processes, organizing an iPhone, paying too much money to Apple, a hundred of validations, etc. Finally, the #GCWizard is available in Apples AppStore! Ok, some validations are still neccessary (Why more?! I don’t get it…), but for the very internal testers it can be installed…
