I use the official groundspeak app when I dont have my gps with me. I also have geosphere, but I never use it. The official app allows realtime cache searches as long as you have a network connection, you can also directly log your finds as well as trackables. Both apps also support pocket queries and saving maps for offline use.

Ease of use for a noobie, definitely use the groundspeak geocaching app.

I have the official Geocaching app and Geosphere. I have used both and prefer the Groundspeak app. but Geosphere is not too bad (and it's free)

The apps that I use on my Iphone for Geocaching are:

- Geocaching (by groundspeak) this is the main app it is great because it is realtime information just have to make sure you have a good enough data plan if you are going to use it a lot.

- Geosphere I use this to load up caches from my pocket queries including my fines, I also use with exported GPX files from GSAK that I pull in using Dropbox.

- iGCT (Geocaching Toolkit) is a nice app to have while on the road as it help with some puzzle solving tools you might need including a waypoint projector

- If you are not using any thing but the phone for a GPS, you might want to load Geocaching Buddy as it will help you handle multi-caches.

- PiGo is a Wherigo cartridge player for the Iphone which works fine.

I stand corrected, though it was free when I installed it.
