Packing Pro Celebrates 3rd Anniversary with iCloud Auto-sync Update

April 18, 2012 in Travel (E)

[] Taipei, Taiwan - Packing Pro, QuinnScape's popular travel app for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, is celebrating its 3rd anniversary with a major update. Version 8.0, the biggest update since adding full iPad support over 18 months ago, now fully supports iCloud auto-syncing, which effortlessly keeps all your packing lists, catalog content & customized settings up-to-date across all your iOS devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod touch). You can even share lists & collaborate with other family members or friends on the same iCloud account. Also, since Packing Pro is a universal app that's customized for both the iPhone & iPad screen sizes, it is now possible to seamlessly create lists & pack at home with your iPad, and then travel lightly with these same lists on your iPhone or iPod touch.

Packing Pro has been a top-ranking travel app in the iTunes App Store since its launch three years ago, reaching the top 1-3 in both the iPhone & iPad Travel sections for the U.S, Canada, Australia, Italy, China & India, among others. Packing Pro has also been featured in Apple's winter 2011 Traveling Home section & as a Staff Favorite, as well as highlighted in the summer 2009 Travel Guide promotion, and recognized by National Geographic & American Express' Travel Leisure (two years in a row) as one of the best travel apps for the iPhone. Packing Pro was also chosen as a finalist in both the 2010 and 2011 Best App Ever Award competitions, and has earned glowing reviews on major tech & app blogs (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

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.

Three years of constant updates and improvements have made Packing Pro one of the best & most reliable travel apps in the App Store. Version 8.0 makes packing even easier with full iCloud auto-sync support. It's a breeze to keep all your iOS devices up-to-date without having to manually import or export anything ever again. This is especially helpful to families sharing a single iCloud account, as all will be able to monitor, add & check off items in fully synced lists. Check it out for yourself today!
