What's New in Version 12.0
This major update (on the heels of Packing Pro’s 7th anniversary) includes a big overhaul of the app’s backend coding — over 20,000 lines have been updated or rewritten. Support has been dropped for iOS 6 & 7, but devices on iOS 8 & 9 now function much more smoothly. Once again, as always, this is a totally free update.
HUGE changes that improve editing & list-making organization & efficiency:
- You can now SMART SEARCH / QUICK ADD on all Master Catalog pages
- List page search is also improved - plus, it’s come out of hiding!
- SORT option added to each level of the Master Catalog
- New function to capitalize or uncapitalize Master Catalog types & items
- Extra options for ‘Add List to List’ function
Other nice improvements:
- Tap page title to quickly scroll back to top, and to SEARCH on list & catalog pages
- Save multi-line notes for lists & items
- More robust iCloud Drive auto-syncing
- Smoother rotations & animations
- Fixed some long-standing layout & transition issues
- Added extra space for editing on iPhones
- Added extra assistance for app badge settings
- Fixed a badge bug that sometimes showed a number of remaining items, even when list was empty (thanks Johann!)
- Fixed bug that ignored ‘Disable Auto-lock’ setting on later re-launch
- Fixed some web-connection bugs
Since so many things were changed with this update, if you encounter any bugs, please let me know (and be patient & understanding). Thanks for all your feedback & support, and stay tuned for more updates!
Make trip-taking less stressful
I've been using this app for years and it makes taking trips so much less stressful. I can start planning weeks (or sometimes months) in advance using great suggested lists (that help jog the memory) or re-use lists from previous trips. Makes it so easy! And when it comes to the actual packing, it's a breeze. Just look at Packing Pro, put the stuff in suitcases and/or bags and I'm off. No worrying whether I forgot something. It's really a wonderfully-designed app with a dedicated developer who keeps releasing update after update with great improvements. I'd highly recommend this app.
SORT OF DISAPPOINTED
I'm disappointed in this app. I only ever need to use it like once a year and the one time I go to use it, which mind you is during the summer and is prime travel time for everyone, it crashes every second I add one item to my list.
Seriously, I only need to use it once every year and paid for this app only for it to crash and not even be functional. At least make sure that the app works during the summer- that's when most people travel!
Please fix this.
P.S. I revised my rating from 1 star to 3 stars because I noticed that the developers work very hard to meet the requests of their customers.
Great app for backpacking, skiing, kayaking, climbing and other back country adventures
If you engage in these activities you really want to be sure you've got all your gear. Missing one piece of gear, like say a kayak paddle or a stove or fuel can really put a crimp in your trip when you're in the back country. I've been using this app for a couple of years and it's made our packing for
big trips much easier. Active development keeps improving it. The new feature to use a list in a list is great for multi sport trips!
