Is there an option to logout in the new version? I couldn't find it. My girlfriend and I go caching quite a bit together and I was glad to see the switch user function, however the first time I tried to switch to her account, it wouldn't switch back to my account (there were no options to remember me either). I ended up having to say don't allow access before I could even get the login screen. Is it possible to save user information so that it doesn't have to be entered when switching users? I will be looking forward to the trackables option so that I can start logging caches in the field again. Will the next release also bring up the personal cache notes section? Thanks for the upgrade, looking forward to the next one.
I've just tested the same issue on my Motorola A855 and achieved the exact same effect: namely, deny the access, then try again to log in. This is a particularly egregious mistake
considering the warning to never give out your log in information before the second person logs in. In my case, my wife's login was persistent on my phone even AFTER a phone reboot. This is a HIGH PRIORITY BUG.

Saw the upgrade in the Market and gave it a try. Some thoughts:
- it's faster
- like the gui change
- seems better behaved in low cell reception areas
- still can't grab/note/drop trackables via the app. Ugh.
Agreed. It's nice that it has the option to grab a trackable (if you go to the main screen and search by trackable), but it would seem that I cannot use the app to ever drop one. Don't enough trackables go missing without encouraging it? This is a REASONABLE HIGH-EFFECT FEATURE REQUEST.
In general, I'm very happy with the app. The improved GUI makes it easier to read. The database processing is noticeably slower though (note: this is both PQs from the web and .gpx from an SD file so I'm guessing that it's the app itself here). I've got reasons both to like and dislike that a .gpx file with more than 100 caches in it will now show up (and quickly) on the Map View. The advanced searches are awesome. Overall: it's a B+ update. It almost had the A, but there are just some glitches (ex: the switch user fail) that are too big to ignore.
Also, as a wishlist item: I'd sooner want to see my stats than my souvenirs.
And then the pipe dream for a future release (i.e., not a bug fix version - fix those first): an interactive touchscreen map option to trace a route on the map (perhaps even multiple disjoint segments) with my finger, which is then searchable like a .kml route, which is then savable as an offlist line for future use.
