Packing Pro app review: helping you pack wisely



For many people, packing is actually a skill that you have to learn through experience and many many wrong turns. How many times have you over-packed or under-packed for a trip? It's never fun either way. The Packing Pro app can be used on your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone to ensure that you always pack perfectly and have all the right items on hand. You can browse through a number of sample lists, customize one, or make one from scratch.

Always Be Prepared

How many times have you heard the saying "always be prepared"? Well, sometimes that is easier said than done when it comes to packing. This app makes it possible for you to organize and ensure you bring along all the items you need for your trip. This app is absolutely loaded with features such as the sample packing lists, of which there are nine. There is also a catalog of items that you can add to your list; choose from more than 800. The app allows for complete customization on your part from the font you use, to the layout, to the theme, color, and even texture. You can truly make this the app you want.

This app has recently been updated to include all kinds of new features such as a new sample list, the option to purchase new themes and sample lists, improved readability of the information, bug fixes, and just general improvements. The app scores a very solid rating of four out of five stars from customers who love the help this app offers through the sample lists that allow for customization.

Don’t Pack Without It

It's almost impossible to touch on all the features you get in this app as there are just so many. It's really about making packing simple, quick, and stress-free. There is no need for you to run around panicked at the last minute wondering if you've remembered everything. Instead, let this app help you get and stay organized.

The moment you launch the app you will find it has a very clean and clutter-free user interface. I really like that you can check out a "demo trip" to see how a list looks laid out, and how you use it. This gives you an instant appreciation for what the app can do. I have created a few packing lists of my own now and I really like how customizable it is. The sample lists are generally quite good and require very little tweaks.
