What's New in Version 10.2
- Added ‘Management’ section to Settings for Alerts, Photos, People & Bags
- Fixed alert/notification & badge bug in iOS 8
- Added extra icons for People, Bags & Categories (thanks for all the suggestions!)
- Added easier access to app permissions in Settings
- Added full support for 64-bit iOS devices
- Improved support for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus
- Improved iCloud auto-sync, though it's still recommended NOT to EDIT content on more than one device at the same time (viewing is OK)
Also, for iCloud auto-sync users on iOS 8, in case you haven’t done so yet, please upgrade your device to iCloud Drive.
This app has it all. Primarily, we use bag and person assignments for every item we pack. This allows us to track where everything is during complex trips. The automatic packing list generation base on number of people and weather is simply amazing and creates a great starting point. Quinn thought of everything for the Master Catalog. I don’t think we have had to add anything yet! Just needs Dropbox support for syncing between devices that are not on the same iCloud account. Get this today if you’re serious about travel.
Sync feature is junk
Have been using this for while, software is OK, sync was never its strength. Today, I painstakingly edited one of my lists on my iPad, then I wanted to use the list my iPhone. After I opened the app on my iPhone, the sync feature reverted my list back to the old version and wiped out all my edits and updates that I made on my iPad. Note to developer: if you can't figure out how to make iCloud sync work, just don't offer the feature.
I hate that I can't edit the templates. If I try to create a new list based on an old one, it doesn't create a fresh one, it creates it with some things checked off & other things not checked off (like the list you copied). I want to open it up & create a fresh list from a template that I created.
