[prMac.com] Taipei, Taiwan - With the version 5.0 update, Packing Pro has now become a Universal app. This update, free for all existing customers, brings full iPad-optimized support to the popular iPhone travel app. It also brings improved performance when run on iPhones and iPod touches. iPad-specific enhancements include a full-screen layout redesign, iPad-specialized controls and management, an iPad-sized keyboard for easier text entry, and native resolution text & graphics, among others.
Packing Pro has been a top-ranking travel app in the U.S. iTunes App Store for more than a year, peaking at #6 in the Travel section (and #2 in Australia and #1 in Canada). 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
Besides the core functions 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.
Packing Pro, the top-ranking iPhone travel packing app, has now gone Universal by fully supporting the iPad as well as the iPhone and iPod touch. iPad users can now fully enjoy the flexibility, power and convenience that earlier users have come to expect with this app. Come check it out today!
