Packing will help to take everything you need along in a trip!

The AppStore price: $2.99

Packing Pro (+To Do) is a favorite travel application of the majority of Americans because it prevents your packing for a vacation from turning into chaotic process when you take useless stuff and forget the really important things. I agree that application seems to be too simple to be paid but you may reconsider our opinion when it will help you to create a list of to-do things and give reminders on what you have to do before a flight to another country.

Why I recommend using Packing Pro:

  • create to-do lists by selecting among the thousands of items tourists usually take along when traveling. The multi-selection option of items is included;
  • take an advantage of iCloud support;
  • share your packing lists via email and iTunes File Sharing;
  • choose among the pre-ready average and customizable templates of packing lists for men/women/teens/kids considering such factors as your destinations, food preferences, clothes washing and other important trifles;
  • an easy-to-navigate option between 2 main categories of the app – Packing, Catalog, Help and Design.

Packing Pro seems too simple at first but give it enough time to ensure you about how helpful it can be.
