[prMac.com] Taipei, Taiwan - Packing Pro, one of the most popular travel apps on the iPhone & iPad App Stores, has been chosen as a finalist in the iPad Travel App division of the 2010 Best App Ever competition. Considering that there are only seven finalists out of over 2000 travel apps optimized for the iPad, this is quite an achievement. This is the third year that the Best App Ever competition, sponsored by 148Apps, has been held. Voting for 2010's top apps is now open and will continue until January 25.
Packing Pro has been a top-ranking travel app in the iTunes App Stores of several countries for more than a year and half. It has peaked at #3 and #2 for the iPhone and iPad, respectively, in the U.S. Travel App section, #2 for both device types in Australia's Travel App section, and #1 for both the iPhone & iPad 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 (now with duplicate-item safeguards)
* Collapsable categories with running item tallies
* Numerous packing list sorting and 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 and 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), twice as many sample lists, a double-sized Master Catalog with over 800 items and to-do tasks, Smart Search, full landscape orientation & keyboard support on all iOS devices, and an Expert packing list wizard that can "automajically" help you create a customized list. These extra pro 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.
