Backpack Optimizer

By Philip Keth

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


This application allows you to manage all your backpacking equipment in one easy to use, friendly app. Plus, it allows you to build virtual backpacks and calculates the weight of each virtual backpack in order to take the guessing out packing your backpack.

Enter all of your backpacking equipment into the application by configuring categories. Enter each items Name, Weight (down to the 10th of the ounce/kg) along with a photo of the item. Then, you can create different sets of virtual backpacks. For each virtual backpack, you can add or subtract items from your pack by looking at the name and the photo. As you add items to your backpack, you see the total weight at the bottom of the screen. You can quickly choose the items that will give you the optimal backpack weight.

If your backpack is too heavy, simply remove some items that you feel you can survive without in order to tweak your virtual pack down to that optimal weight for your trip. When you have finished, you can now, gather the equipment up by referring to your list and know for a fact that your pack will be just right for your upcoming adventure.

Not so great. I like the idea of pictures but this app is poorly designed. I can create my own categories but I can't sort items? Input order only is a pretty crappy way to organize gear. If I buy a new rain jacket I want to put it on the list next to the others, not at the bottom of the clothing list. Forgot something? Re enter everything or it will be at the bottom. There are much better apps for this. Don't buy it.

Do not buy this app.

This app does not work on iPhone 6s. Don't waste your money.
