Taipei, Taiwan – Packing Pro, the popular iPhone travel app by Quinn Genzel, has just been given a major upgrade, in anticipation of increased demand and usage over the summer travel season. New features include a 60% larger master catalog (now with over 800 items), a powerful Smart Search tool, and full landscape orientation and keyboard support. These three features help improve the ease and efficiency of packing list creation and management by reducing the need and the difficulty of typing on such a small device.
Packing Pro has been a top-ranking travel app in the U.S. iTunes App Store for much of the year since its initial launch, peaking at #6 in the Travel section (and #2 in Australia and #4 in Canada). Packing Pro has also been spotlight demoed in Apple’s summer 2009 Travel Guide and recognized by National Geographic & American Express as one of the best travel apps for the iPhone, as well as earning glowing reviews on 148Apps, iLounge & TUAW.
Packing Pro is more than just a digital packing list. It’s more like a personal packing assistant that is always by your side. It features an extensive, customizable catalog, several handy sample lists that can be used as templates, and unlimited, 100% customizable packing lists. A host of special functions include:
* Multi-item selection for speedy list building
* Collapsable categories with running item tallies
* Numerous packing list sorting & display options
* Weight and value totals
* Send to email
* Import / export to other Packing apps and devices
* Recovery of deleted lists and categories
* Extensive in-app instructions and feedback options
Besides the core functions listed above (which are also present in the basic Packing app), Packing Pro also gives its users complete control over the look and feel of the app (themes, layout, font, colors), twice as many sample lists, a double-sized Master Catalog, and an Expert packing list that can “automajically” help you create a customized list. The three new features in this most recent update are exclusive to Packing Pro as well.
Packing Pro’s already solid and extensive feature set has been greatly enhanced with these three new features. Now, the Master Catalog includes almost anything you could think of packing, while Smart Search makes these items easier to find, and the landscape keyboard makes the occasional typing much more comfortable than with the former portrait-only keyboard. Packing has just become a whole lot easier – just in time for summer vacation.
