GCVote's most powerful feature is the complete integration with the geocaching.com website.
GCVote is also compatible with some applications like GSAK and Cachebox.

Here is an example of what it looks like when looking at a waypoint description:

Suggested quality rating:

?  - neutral / not rated yet
1  - poor
 - fairly poor
2  - below average
 - not so bad
3  - average
 - not bad at all
4  - better than average
 - very good
5  - awesome

There is no detailed guidance on how to rate a geocache, but please rate in a kind of common sense so that any fellow cacher can see where you felt a detour is really rewarding.

It's easy and fast to use, when it's time to enter your 'Found it' log, just a click and your rating is recorded:

If you visit the page of all your found, this is how it will look like:
