  • A long-time favorite

    I have used this app for years and still love it - something I can say for only a handful of apps! It has more features than I use - I can see the benefit of the full drawer of tools - it as a user who only uses the basics, it still works great and the things I do not use do not get in the way. Highly recommend.

    I've been using this app for years. Somehow the developers are able to make it even more useful. Planning and packing for travel can be stressful for me, but having my Packing Pro lists means all I have to do is check the boxes. Good to go!
  • Can I give more than 5 stars??

    My husband & I just bought a pop up camper and r planning a trip out West. I downloaded this app expecting it to b like all travel apps-only half useful!! I don’t write a lot of reviews only when I feel strongly about the app and I certainly don’t recommend apps to people but this app is different. I have to say this is the best app EVER!!! I have already told two people about it and I have had it less than 12 hrs. I can’t wait to travel. Now that I have this app I NEED to travel. If u r a list maker (like myself) and like to travel do ur self a favor and download this app
  • Cant beat this one

    2017 review: I just cant think of a reason not to get this. It makes everything about planning, packing, traveling and returning painless and worry free. I like the way the creator offers updates and so far they have all been free. Lots of new features in the past 3 years. I use it on my iPhone and iPad and can now bring my lists into my computer as a csv file and use the keyboard to make multiple edits. Each item of luggage can be represented by a customized icon and words. Each item you need can be searched for, added, tweaked and can be entered individually (like one medication) or by adding a customized list (like all medications). And it offers notifications such as being able to set up a reminder to order needed medications 2 weeks before leaving. Or buy something like a new set of swim goggles. I especially enjoy the feature of timed checklists. I set up three checklists. One covers things to do 1 week before I leave (confirm and gather documents). Another is for 24 hrs before leaving (reminds me to plug in all devices to fully charge, tweak TV program recordings, etc) and my last checklist is for 3 hours before leaving (reminds me to fill pet bowls, adjust thermostat, shut down computers etc). I pack for just myself but families may appreciate the ability to add a list of names and then assign different luggage items to each name packed with items for that person. In my case I can pack pet luggage with items for the specific pet(s) when they travel with me! Another use for the names list is the family reunion I am planning. Some are flying, some driving. I am making a list for those driving to ask them to bring items for the flyers like extra towels and ice chests and other bulky items. This is one powerful app!! My 2014 review: Main problem was the learning curve. I did not "grow with the app" from early stages. I got it in summer of 2014 and it is very detailed- a ton of options for personal tweaking. The app has good help and support but still took me a few months and about 3 trips to understand the nuances because of it has so many features. Once I got my templates figured out and tailored the rest was a breeze. Now it takes me just a few minutes to create my travel details for each trip. Whether overnight business, romantic get-away, two week family visit or prolonged monthly rental, it's so nice to never worry about forgetting to prepare the house for pet sitters or forgetting to bring something. This app is a real winner for me!!
  • Update fixed display problem - best packing app I’ve used

    By Desert Joe
    Great app, although today’s update has stopped all rows and columns being visible on the IPad screen, so app is now unusable. Update: Quick response from the developer fixed the display issue on my iPad Pro and everything now working again as before. Wonderful app - use it on every trip I take.
  • Travel must have!!

    By AKiteFlier
    I never take a trip without using this app. It's as essential to my trip planning as my passport is to traveling. I've used it for years and consequently have several saved lists. My lists start with a "To do pre-trip" category so I remember all the things I need to do. I can add notes (which flip flops for example) to items I'm taking. It's also great when I pack to come home. I don't leave anything behind. On the day of departure I open the app to see what's left. Toss in the final few and I'm out the door. Thank you for a fantastic app that only gets better with every update!! ❤️
  • Comprehensive & Efficient

    I’ve tried several packing list apps and this one is the best. The Master Catalog is quite comprehensive but easy to add to if needed. The sample lists are great starting points, as well as good memory joggers for items and categories of things I tend to forget. They’re also easy to customize. The developer is very responsive and helpful. I’ve only needed to contact him once but he got back to me within a couple hours!
  • Better than paper

    I have been using this app for several years. We take an annual vacation and usually pack the same items. I can copy last year’s list as a starting point. I like the ability to assign a bag to a person, create custom colored icons and move items between categories for what makes sense to me. With cloud sharing, I can pack suitcases in one room and my husband can pack coolers in another with the same list. The ability to globally uncheck a list makes packing for the return trip much easier. I can be sure we come back with everything and it all ends up in the same bags.
  • By far the best...

    This is by far the best packing app there is. It is robust and powerful in the options available to the user. And check out Shopping Pro as well. Those two apps are absolutely amazing. I wish I had access to these apps years ago.

    Update: Problems vanished with either the 11.02 iOS update or a reboot of my devices. I upgraded my rating from 1 star to 4. The program is great and the reason I don’t give it 5 stars is that is maybe too good with a lot of options that make it difficult to get started. I use it for travel but I even have “packing” list for Salmon fishing, crabbing, hiking. PRIOR REVIEW Not sure what has happened but it is totally unusable in its current state even after the 10/4/17 update. I will give it some time because it took a long time to get organized as I need it. I’m now looking for a replacement app or create something on my own.
