[prMac.com] Taipei, Taiwan - Packing Pro, the popular travel app for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch by QuinnScape, has just been recommended by Apple in its updated "Traveling Home" App Store Essentials promotion showcase. This makes it an officially endorsed, essential app for traveling this holiday season. It has also helped propel Packing Pro into the top 10 U.S. travel apps, for both the iPhone & iPad.
Packing Pro has been a top-ranking travel app in the iTunes App Store since its launch nearly three 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, and in September was picked as a Staff Favorite by Apple.
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 floating headers & 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 and devices
* Recovery of deleted lists and categories
* Extensive in-app instructions & feedback options
* 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.
This holiday season, whether you're heading home for Christmas or going on a cruise or other vacation over the New Year holidays, don't forget to download Packing Pro, the essential, Apple-recommended app for traveling.
