[prMac.com] Taipei, Taiwan - Packing Pro, the popular travel app for the iPhone, iPad & iPod touch by QuinnScape, has just gotten a major redesign and new icon, as well as a greatly simplified workflow. Now at version 7.0 (free for existing users), Packing Pro has come a long way from the original Packing app of three years ago.
Packing Pro's facelift begins with its exciting new app icon and intro splash screen, and moves quickly on to its new 'Suitcase' theme design. The home page has also been streamlined and graphics have been added to guide workflow and indicate options throughout the app. Shortcuts, fewer popups, and two new features (Quick Add & Quick Edit), greatly simplify and speed up the whole packing process.
Packing Pro has been a top-ranking travel app in the iTunes App Store since its launch, 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 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.
Over the past three years, Packing Pro has evolved into a top-class, top-ranking, and now very professional-looking & fun-to-use travel app with nearly constant upgrades and improvements. Come check out the new facelift, as well as all of the other great changes made in this version 7.0 update (free for existing users) - you won't be disappointed!
