[prMac.com] Taipei, Taiwan - Packing Pro, QuinnScape's popular travel app for the iPhone, iPad & iPod touch, is now being featured by Apple in its "Plan Your Vacation" recommendation page. This comes on the heels of the version 8.0 update, which added full iCloud auto-syncing to effortlessly keep all packing lists, catalog content & customized settings up-to-date across all of a user's iOS devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod touch). Apple's recommendation has helped propel Packing Pro to the #4 spot on the U.S App Store Travel section for iPads, and #5 for iPhones.
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 and running item tallies
* Numerous packing list sorting and display options
* Weight and value totals
* Send to email for print out and file sharing
* Import / export to other Packing apps and devices
* Fully customized device support for iPhones, iPod touches and iPads
* Full multi-lingual support for English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Japanese and 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.
Apple's recommendation comes after three years of constant updates and improvements, culminating in the recent very-well-received iCloud update. This summer, don't forget to plan your vacation with Packing Pro!
