The web administrator from the website geocaching.com submitted the first geocaching application for the iPhone to Apple. Depending on how quickly they get around to reviewing the application, we should see it in the App Store within two weeks. The cost of the application is $9.99 and has the functionality you need to look up and seek out caches using the networking and location-based features of the iPhone 3G. It also works with the iPod Touch and First Generation iPhone, though you will need WiFi for the Touch, and the compass won’t work on the first generation iPhone (naturally).

Some features:

* You can look up travel bugs and find out their goal while out on the trail
* Saved Items allows you to save a cache listing and navigate to it, even when you are out of network range
* The application starts in beginner mode which only shows traditional caches. Advanced shows all types
* To help with speed issues on, say, the Edge network, you can restrict the number of results to 5, 10, 15 or 20
