Yes, they different apps use colors for cache types, but not necessarily the symbols.

Typically:
Blue is Mystery
Green is traditional
Yellow/gold is Multi(stage) cache
White are event caches
Letterbox hybrids / CITO / earth caches depend on the exact app and data source. But I've seen red, purple, black, orange all used.

Why am I all sweatty and late? Umm...

Welcome! I had to come on over and see what was goin' on around here!

Yes, it's my Unknown / Mystery cache you didn't find, but it sounds like you might be on the right track to find it now. My puzzles are easy to solve--unlike some of these puzzlemasters around here who have me pulling out my hair trying to solve theirs!

My hubby (caching name Don-Giacomo) and I almost always use our iPhones for caching around town, quick cache-of-the-day runs. The dedicated GPSr units really come in handy for...

*days when you're going to do lots of caches. You can run a Pocket Query for the area you're visiting and then just use the phone for field notes, preserving its battery power
*caching in areas without phone service
*caching when you need more precision. The phones are often a little "off," but as experienced cachers were fine if we get in the general area for most caches. Others, I want to get as close as humanly possible.
*placing caches. You need the precision, for sure!

I have a Garmin 60CSx, and I love it. Simple, but very accurate. My husband has a more fancy model, and it does show the hint and a few previous logs.

I'm also in the Mo City / Sugar Land area; maybe you'd like to come out caching with us some time. =}
