Taipei, Taiwan – Packing Pro, the popular travel app for the iPhone, iPad & iPod touch, has just been updated to support Japanese and Chinese (both simplified & traditional). Now, users in Japan, China, Taiwan and the rest of Asia can fully enjoy the convenience of having a personal, digital travel packing assistant accompany them wherever they go. Support for CSV import-export was also recently added, which enables out-of-app PC- or Internet-based editing of packing lists with Excel, Numbers, Google Docs, and other similar applications.
Packing Pro has been a top-ranking travel app in the iTunes App Store since its launch over two years ago, reaching the top 3 in both the iPhone & iPad Travel sections for the U.S, Canada & Australia. Packing Pro has also been featured in Apple’s summer 2009 Travel Guide and recognized by National Geographic & American Express’ Travel Leisure (two years in a row) as one of the best travel apps for the iPhone, as well as earning glowing reviews on major tech & app blogs (148Apps, iLounge & TUAW, among others). In January, Packing Pro was also chosen as a finalist in the 2010 Best App Ever Award competition.
Packing Pro 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 for print out & file sharing
* Import / export to other Packing apps, devices & applications
* Fully customized device support for iPhones, iPod touches & iPads
Besides the core features 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, fonts, colors, textures), twice as many sample lists, a double-sized Master Catalog with over 800 items and to-do tasks, Smart Search, an Expert packing list wizard that can “automajically” help you create a customized list, and the newly introduced iTunes & email file sharing & out-of-app editing support.
Just in time for back-to-school packing and fall season traveling, Packing Pro 6.2 now brings native-language support to travelers in Japan, China, Taiwan and the rest of Asia. Now they too can see why users in the U.S., Canada, Australia & the U.K. have already chosen Packing Pro as their top travel packing assistant app.
