GREAT Tool !!!
Update... It is really a 5...
Great support from Quinn (I hope he takes some of the suggestions) but the tool is really more flexible than I thought and with Quinn's expert advice I can now really use PackingPro and bag another task mgmt tool I was force-fitting my packing mania into. Thanks Quinn! Of course the suggestions implemented would make it a 6 :-). And oh yeah the "move", "copy", etc function is there.. just a little obscure until you know it's there... It seems out of place it terms of the style, if there were one non-rave comment to make..
Ok, I'm a great tool junkie, admittedly, and I REALLY like this PackingPro Tool. Candidly I'd discarded it a couple of releases ago, but, now I'm wow'ed... Excellent flexibility for structure, naming and contents.
I'm a big TaskPro user, and I'd love to see some of their capability (like in this case, ability to move or copy an ITEM between CATEGORIES, or TYPES).
Also ability to have a trip daily wear structure capability... On Monday am! Monday mid-day, Monday pm for instance... And be able to more easily group and select against a per-day clothing structure ... A lay-up 5 stars with some more function !!! I'm close to 5 now, but wanna see the kind of capability I want ... And I travel EVERY week...
Perfect - Easy to use & powerful
This may be the best iPad app ever! Easy to learn and use, but also very customizable and powerful.
We bought this for my husband's iPad where I spent a little time getting oriented and customizing the Master Categories so we can easily create new lists that suit our type of travel (hiking, photography, etc.). Found it very easy to set these up and liked the app so very much (love that it has lists of things to do to get ready before the trip as well as lists of things to pack). So, we bought another copy of the app for my iPad so either one of us can work on the lists and we can both share them.
When using iTunes didn't work for sharing, sent a question to the app support and they suggested using email. Turned out to be so easy: Jack sent the Master Categories list to me via email. When it arrived, I simply clicked on the attachment and Packing Pro launched and asked if I wanted to import (warning that it would overwrite my existing list as it should), I confirmed and it imported in a flash. All there, all working beautifully.
What a wonderful app! Powerful, easy to use, and solid (works beautifully). Well worth it!!
Thank you to the developers!!!
My new favorite app!
Having an organized list gives me great peace of mind, and this app allows me to organize my packing AND my travel planning exactly the way I like. The Master Catalog of items is comprehensive, but you may also add, rename, and reorder items and then sort/filter the display as you choose.
Because it is so customizable, it is useful for any type of project, not just packing!
There are areas to improve: I wish the icon options were more diverse, some of the selection and renaming processes are non-intuitive or clunky; it's not quite perfect.
That said, I'm still giving it five stars because it is incredibly useful and Quinn is incredibly responsive and helpful!
