Taipei, Taiwan – QuinnScape is proud to announce that its Packing Pro travel app is now a finalist for Best Travel App in the 2013 Readers’ Choice Awards, sponsored by About.com. That means it’s one of only five travel apps, out of almost 40,000, that have made it this far. In addition, this is the second consecutive year that Packing Pro has reached the finals in this competition.
Since its launch almost four years ago, Packing Pro has been highlighted on Apple’s App Store several times. Currently, it can be found in the “10 Essentials” and “Plan Your Vacation” promotions. It was also featured in summer 2012 (“Plan Your Vacation”), winter 2011 (“Traveling Home” and “Staff Favorite”) as well as in the summer 2009 “Travel Guide” promotion. It has often also placed high in the top 10 rankings, peaking at #1 for iPads and #2 for iPhones in the U.S. App Store’s Travel section.
Besides Apple, Packing Pro has also been recognized by CNN, WSJ, BBC, Budget Travel, The Chicago Tribune, Fodor’s, National Geographic & American Express’ Travel + Leisure (two years in a row) as one of the best travel apps for the iPhone. Packing Pro has also earned glowing reviews on major tech & app blogs (Gizmodo, Mashable, Macworld, CNET, 148Apps, iLounge, TUAW & iPhone Life, among others).
