[prMac.com] Taipei, Taiwan - After being featured by Canada's National Post and Financial Post on October 25 as one of their best travel apps, Packing Pro shot up the iTunes App Store charts to reach the #1 position in both the iPhone and iPad Travel App sections in the Canadian App Store. This is the first time that Packing Pro has topped the charts there for both the iPhone and the iPad at the same time.
Besides its success in Canada, Packing Pro has also been a top-ranking travel app in the iTunes App Stores of several other countries as well, for over a year. It has peaked at #3 and #2 for the iPhone and iPad, respectively, in the U.S. Travel App section, and #2 for both device types in Australia's Travel App section. Packing Pro has also been spotlight demoed 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).
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
* Multi-tasking, fast-app-switching support
* 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, 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. Recently added features include a 60% larger master catalog (now with over 800 items), a powerful Smart Search tool, and full landscape orientation and keyboard support on the iPhone/iPod touch. 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.
Following Packing Pro's feature by Canada's National Post as one of their best travel apps, as well as its recent Universal app update which enabled full iPad support, customers have voted with their wallets to make it the most popular paid iPhone and iPad travel app on the Canadian App Store.
