I believe the older devices won't see the upgrade and will just keep the previous version.
Depending on your Play Store settings, upgrade it could be automatic but normally you need to click the update button manually.

Phew! Thanks for the reassurance. If I lost that app, it'd be a very sad day. I'd probably have to change phones!

Since the upgrade my Samsung GSII has crashed every time you try to load cache details.

How do I send that error report to you Mtrax?

It's doing the same on my Samsung Ace ... I've submitted several 'crash reports' each time it's failed. Do you get these?

unfortunately I don't get notified on these crash reports , but I do check them from time-time..
and yes I can see these reports.. I'll check them out ASAP.

Are you guys running Stock ie standard ROMs that come with your handset?
but this looks like a backwards compatibility issue so I will need look at finding a solution..

Yes just standard ROM. My Samsung Ace is a few years old so only running v2.3.4. Getting close to needing to upgrade as more and more apps are not supporting my old droid :(

I have bumped the minimum android release to Gingerbread V2.3 which is about 5 years ago so hopefully this won't impact most people.

Change log
==========
0.55
* updates to UI added action bar icons
* using new Google Maps V2 API
* minor bug fixes and enhancements
* History now includes your last 10 GCA logs
* History now includes your recently viewed geocaches
Well, it's happened. I've had to factory re-set my A-50 and all my apps are gone. Is there any way to access the earlier version of GA Cacher? A-50 is stuck at V2.1 and I'd very much like to re-install.

Can't seem to access any caches via the app ... would this be due to the new website revamp?

I can view caches via the "Load-1" but if I click on "nearby" I get ..
