Geocaching version 5.1 for iOS

Geocaching version 5.1Groundspeak's Geocaching app for iOS received an update this morning. Version 5.1 doesn't include the expected support for the taller iPhone 5 screen and still has the "Found It" bug when logging event caches. It does include many new features;
  • New map toggle enables easy switching between a geocache list, map, or compass
  • Easy access to map controls, saving, and search from the map screen
  • Fixed jumpy map pin issue in iOS 6
  • Open Pocket Query without having to download all geocaches
  • Pocket Queries now shows your finds, Favorite Points, and associated waypoints
  • Improved auto-zoom on map and "Search by GC Code" interface
  • Images can now be sent with Trackable logs and Trackable details now offer photo galleries
  • Premium Memberships can now be purchased through the app
  • Added support for Portuguese and Danish
The complete release notes are available in the forums. It's a free upgrade for current owners and still $9.99US for new purchases.
