Geocaching, for those that don't know, is an outdoors sporting activity / treasure hunt in which participant use a GPS to navigate to a given set of co-ordinates, in order to find a geocache (cache). The geocache is usually a container, inside which you'll find a number of items including a log book that you can sign with a date and name to record your visit. is a Geocache web site that aims to be as open and free as possible, with no paid content. All the caches are published under an open source license. This contrasts with, which has the biggest list of caches on the web, but some features are only available to paid members. has its own Windows Phone app, Geocaching Live, which we wrote about earlier this year.
