Camping list app review: don't forget a thing



If you're heading out on a camping trip then you're faced with packing for your trip and n -one wants to leave an item behind. The Camping list app can be used on your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone as a way to organize what it is you need to pack. What's great is that whether you are an experienced camper or this is your first trip the app can prove to be useful. The app is fully customizable so that it works for your specific needs.

Simplify the Process

What the Camping list app does is simplify the entire packing process. There is no need to remember items in your head and then wonder if you've forgotten anything important. What’s great is that the app comes loaded with the list so it acts as a starting point. The list isn't just thrown together lightly; it was created by experienced campers so every single item you could possibly use is on there. With that said you'll be able to customize the list so that it works for your trip. As you pack items just check them off on the list so you stay organized.

The app hasn't been updated in two years with the last one allowing users to create multiple lists and manage all of them at once. The app has 3.5 out of five stars from users who would like to see more changes, improvements, and just general enhancements made.

Customizing the Lists

The Camping list app can be used the way it is, with the list provided, or you can opt to customize it. You can even create multiple lists for different trips such as a long camping trip, a camping trip with the kids, or just a short day trip. When it comes to the customization features you'll be able to delete items, add categories, delete categories, add items, change around the order in which the items are listed, rename the items, add notes to the items, and also change the order of the categories. Look at the template as your rough draft and you can make it whatever you want from there.

When viewing your list you can view all items or just the unchecked items so you get a quick look at what you need to pack still. The user interface is simple and streamlined but rather dull. It’s very obvious that there have been no updates in quite some time.
