Geocaching is a popular game for those who are into getting out of their homes to seek treasure in their neighborhoods all around the world. Geocaching may sound like a complicated game but it is actually very easy to play. It is essentially a high-tech hide and seek game for outdoors. The good news is you don’t even need an expensive GPS to get started. These 10 geocaching apps for iPhone can give you a helping hand:
