Best Packing App

I travel a LOT and have tried a number of packing apps. Pack the Bag is by far the best, most intuitive and most flexible of all of them. Only changes I would make are integration with TripIt and/or a weather app. With this information, combined with a couple simple questions when creating a trip like whether the trip is a business or leisure, whether you are alone or with family/children could allow the app to pre-populate the packing list which would take the app from great to awesome.


It's essential

I love PackTheBag! I use it for every trip, whether just a weekend or several weeks of international travel. I love that I can reuse past list, customize items, and sort in a variety of ways. Thanks for keeping me sane before my trips.

Sometimes Free IS Best

I had been a huge fan of the free version of Pack the Bag, uploaded it to my old iPhone 3GS, and using it on a number of my trips to help me organize. I held off for a while before taking a chance on the pay version, wondering if I would not only like it better, but if it would be as flexible and efficient as the original. I had some extra iTunes gift dollars and decided to give it a go.

I'm only thankful the free version still exists. After several attempts for vacations last year, I gave up and returned to my tried and true. For one, the pay version appears more complicated than the first, which is ridiculous. I'm big on categories and subcategories, and I was never sure if I was adding something to be packed later, or what was happening, as I seemed to be going thru way too many clicks to add one item. Even deletions were complicated due to swipe attempts which weren't always successful. I liked the idea of being able to "pack" an object in a specific bag you're taking, but even this got frustrating. The only thing I did like was the weight section; when one has to be careful not to overpack due to baggage fees, etc. this was the one helpful benefit.

After consulting the instructions numerous times, I finally contacted the designer by email AND even on Facebook, but despite their answers, I was never able to achieve their claims. In the end I removed the pay app and reinstalled the old one. It wasn't worth the trouble.
