[prMac.com] Taipei, Taiwan - Packing Pro, QuinnScape's popular travel app for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, has just been updated. Version 8.1 makes list making even easier & smoother, as well as increases the flexibility of the 800+ item Master Catalog and improves the reliability of iCloud auto-sync.
Streamlined improvements include configurable Quick Add behavior, smoother direct entry of sequential list items, auto-addition of new & imported items to the Master Catalog and helpful animations, among others. The Master Catalog has become even more flexible by allowing both two- and three-level structure, vs the previously rigid 3-level 'Category-Type-Item' organization. Several iCloud auto-sync related bugs were also fixed in this version.
Since its launch over three years ago, Packing Pro has been featured in Apple's summer 2012 "Plan Your Vacation," winter 2011 "Traveling Home" and as a "Staff Favorite," as well as highlighted in the summer 2009 "Travel Guide" promotion. It was also recognized by National Geographic & American Express' Travel + Leisure (two years in a row) as one of the best travel apps for the iPhone, and was chosen as a finalist in both the 2010 and 2011 Best App Ever Award competitions. Packing Pro has earned glowing reviews on major tech & app blogs (Gizmodo, Mashable, 148Apps, iLounge, TUAW & iPhone Life, among others).
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
* Fully customized device support for iPhones, iPod touches & iPads
* Full multi-lingual support for English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Japanese & Chinese (both traditional & simplified)
Besides the core features listed above (which are also present in the basic Packing app), Packing Pro also gives its users great iCloud auto-syncing support, complete control over the look and feel of the app (themes, layout, fonts, colors, textures), a double-sized Master Catalog with over 800 items and to-do tasks, an Expert packing list wizard that can "automajically" help you create a customized list, twice as many sample lists, Smart Search, and iTunes & email file sharing & out-of-app editing support.
Packing Pro version 8.1 makes an already easy-to-use app even more streamlined. Added flexibility to the Master Catalog gives users even more freedom, and improved iCloud auto-sync makes this one of the most powerful yet intuitive travel apps on the App Store. Check it out today.
