[prMac.com] Taipei, Taiwan - QuinnScape celebrates its app, Packing Pro's, second anniversary in the App Store. With gas prices so high this summer, most of us need to cut costs wherever else we can. That's where Packing Pro can help. For less than the cost of a single gallon of gas, this iPhone/iPad app can potentially help you save many times that amount. No more forgotten toothpaste or socks, and no more wasted time and hassle spent on replacing those items on the road (or worse yet, deep in the woods or on a remote beach).
Packing Pro has been a top-ranking travel app in the iTunes App Stores of several countries since its launch two years ago. 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). In January, Packing Pro was also chosen as a finalist in the 2010 Best App Ever Award competition.
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 for print out & file sharing
* 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, 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, an Expert packing list wizard that can "automajically" help you create a customized list, and the newly introduced iTunes & email file sharing support. 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.
No matter where you decide to go this summer, Packing Pro can definitely help you eliminate some of the cost & hassle of forgotten items and pre-departure tasks. Let Packing Pro be your summer travel companion, and you too can be a Packing Pro!
