TUAW's iPhone App Snapshot

Over at The Unoffical Apple Weblog (TUAW), Steven Sande has posted a review of the iPhone Geocaching Application.  It’s a good intro to the application and, not being an iPhone junkie myself, it looks honest and reasonably well written.  If you’re an experienced cacher you’ll get just enough information to make up your mind or target your research.  I’m a Windows Mobile user myself and will have more on those tools in other posts.
