Taipei, Taiwan – Packing Pro, QuinnScape’s popular travel app for the iPhone, iPad & iPod touch, is currently topping the App Store charts around the world. Over the past two weeks, it has climbed into the top 5 for travel apps in the United States, Japan, Germany, South Africa & Argentina, among others. It has even claimed the #1 spot in both Canada & Italy. In the midst of the summer travel season, it appears that Packing Pro has truly become a must-have app.
The global strength & popularity of Packing Pro can be attributed to several factors, the first being its feature by Apple in its “Plan Your Vacation” promotion. This came 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). Packing Pro’s customized layout for the iPad, iPhone & iPod touch, as well as its support for multiple languages (English, German, Italian, Spanish, French, Japanese & both Traditional & Simplified Chinese), further augment its international appeal.
Since its launch over three years ago, Packing Pro has 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. It was also recognized by National Geographic & American Express’ Travel + Leisure (two years in a row) as one of the best travel apps for the iPhone, and was chosen as a finalist in both the 2010 and 2011 Best App Ever Award competitions. Packing Pro has earned glowing reviews on major tech & app blogs (Gizmodo, 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 (both traditional & simplified)
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.
This summer, Packing Pro has topped the charts in five continents, and across several languages, as well as being recommended by Apple itself. Come see why for yourself, and plan your own vacation with Packing Pro!
