    Default GC.com updates 11/9/2010

    From the Release notes thread:

    Introducing Geocaching for Windows Phone 7 Mobile Application

    Windows Phone 7 uses a combination of GPS, Wi-Fi positioning and cell towers to determine your approximate location. Groundspeak's Windows Phone 7 Application then queries the Geocaching.com database in real-time and provides a list of geocaches near you. Check out the Geocaching for Windows Phone 7 application page for a full list of features!

    Souvenirs

    We now have the capability to award Souvenirs retroactively! Souvenirs will be awarded in batches over the next several weeks. If you logged a geocache in the past that would have awarded a Souvenir it will automatically appear on your profile tab.

    WYSIWYG

    What-You-See-Is-What-You-Get makes a reappearance in this month's release. This time you'll find the new simplified text editor added to the geocache and Trackables logging page. In the next release we'll finish the job by adding a more feature-rich version to the cache details and profile pages.

    Everyone has the right to be an idiot at times. Just don't abuse the privilege.

    On the logging page what does it do for you when you use the source button. Is this something for HTML?
    Happy Trails!

    Basic HTML pages are just text documents. The source button lets you see and edit the raw text behind the page. You probably will not use that feature much, but it's there if it's easier for you to edit a link or paste in HTML from somewhere else.

    One thing I noticed, the default wont let you spell check.
    I have no enemies, but I'm intensely disliked by my friends.

    Good catch. looks like no one else has mentioned it in the comment thread, but they did say they will be adding a more feature-rich version to the cache details and profile pages in the next release.

    It may not hurt for you to post this in the thread anyway.
