GeoKajet is a geocaching application for Qtopia. If you do not know what geocaching is, visit the geocaching web site at http://www.geocaching.com.

GeoKajet can:
* Display cache descriptions from www.geocaching.com page in a nice, single column format, appropriate for small screens.
* Decode encrypted hints.

You can also view cache descriptions in an HTML browser, such as Opera or NetFront, or using a PDF viewer. But these programs consume more memory on your PDA and are slower to load. Besides, the original layout of geocaching web pages or PDF files is not really suitable for small screens. GeoKajet solves this problem by simplifying HTML and using a lightweight HTML browser to display it.

So all this is is a simplified html viewer? It doesn't even take advantage of a gps unit?

There are other applications that can connect with GPS (e.g. qpegps). But, since this is open source, you are welcome to add GPS support.

I created this small application because I was disappointed with opera messing the layout of geocaching pages. And I did not try to double the functionality of what was already available, but create something useful for geocaching.

Ok, thanks for the clarification. I didn't see any screenshots so I wasn't sure what this thing did.
