I've had this app for years. Developers keep improving. One of the few apps that far exceeds its price.
zoobecca's Review of Packing ProReviewed on 9/5/18 2:33 AM
I have always been a list maker and this list program is perfect. It is so easy to update or modify. I have created customized lists for every trip I take. I just opened it up to start the list for my trip to Florida during Thanksgiving week.
SodaMichael's Review of Packing ProReviewed on 9/3/18 5:59 PM
I’ve been using this for a couple of trips now, both statewide and international. I like the way I can customize a “template” list for two day, five day, international & other lists. Then I can just look to the list for packing and add a few items if needed (bathing suit or jacket or umbrella, etc). This is the best way to pack your bags quickly and be sure you’re not forgetting anything.
NWProf's Review of Packing ProReviewed on 9/3/18 2:19 PM
This is one of those indispensable apps for my travel needs. I have standard lists for car, short air, & long international travel, that are easily modified for seasonal changes. Best of all, the developers work hard to keep it current and bug free. Thanks for a useful & reliable tool!
Carl07643's Review of Packing ProReviewed on 9/26/18 4:04 PM
My wife and I have separate iCloud accounts like most couples. We share a common account for some things like social calendars. It would be great if you could choose which iCloud account to pack up the app to. This would allow us both to keep the list up dated without the need for two separate lists.

I have used this app for many years and it’s great. I recommend this app to all travelers.
ballerinaUS's Review of Packing ProReviewed on 7/30/18 12:13 PM
I’ve used this for several years, for both business and personal travel and it keeps getting better!
peter5112's Review of Packing ProReviewed on 7/25/18 6:19 PM
Overly complicated and specific. Not well thought out. The two things I have forgotten the most often on my travels (over a 100,000 miles/year) are not among the hundreds of items on any of the lists: 2) a dress belt and 2) to notify my credit cards I was leaving the country. I suppose you could add them as separate, unique items but I would’ve thought that these two very common items would’ve already been available. You can’t just add socks: you have to pick from among nine different kinds of socks. If you try and add socks as a separate item, you’re simply told socks is already an available category and you have to pick from it.

Works well. Lots of nice touches. Frequent updates. Great app!
SGuttbinder's Review of Packing ProReviewed on 7/15/18 3:13 AM
Very outdated design and crude animations made me switch my allegiance to other packing apps. After years of always hoping that at least a modern font would be introduced... it never happened. It's time to pack up and move on.
CHARLESU's Review of Packing ProReviewed on 7/14/18 4:53 PM
This is a great app overall, but could be made much better by adding keyboard controls for the iPad. It would be much faster to navigate, add and subtract list items on the external keyboard rather than the touch screen. Also, for some reason the split screen multi-tasking does not work with this app.
kelzjp's Review of Packing ProReviewed on 6/3/18 12:06 AM
I’ve used this list several years! I mostly customize my items versus the default categories which is easy to do. It also allows for separate lists for each family member which I use, too. The backup feature is easy to use and works great. A recommendation I have is to add the ability for it to call up options already in the system when I start typing an item I’m adding to a list. Thanks!
Chris Thoma's Review of Packing ProReviewed on 6/29/18 2:24 AM
This is one great app. I have been using it for years. It makes it very easy for me to store lists and then make up new ones as I go along. It’s one of the first things I check when I am making preparations for a trip.
God's Grace's Review of Packing ProReviewed on 6/28/18 6:01 PM
Love the templates, but also he ability to edit and add and delete items.
Backwoods12T's Review of Packing ProReviewed on 6/23/18 8:37 PM
Packing Pro is the very best app for making sure everything is packed for your trip. It is flexible and customizable for any excursion you have in mind. One of the easiest apps to use that I own! Ive been using Packing Pro since jump street, and it has always worked properly. I have a separate list for the beach, trail riding, camping, and snow skiing. I just open the list and check each item off as it is packed. You cannot go wrong with this app.
Boat Carpenter's Review of Packing ProReviewed on 6/23/18 12:35 PM
Been using this a couple of years now, and still find myself having to relearn some of the Ins and outs of it each time I use it. However, it’s been incredibly useful, and once you get the hang of it, making and using new lists is really fast and easy.
gweeptrish's Review of Packing ProReviewed on 6/21/18 10:07 PM
At this point I’m not sure I’d know how to pack for a trip without this app. Support, on the rare occasion I’ve needed to contact them, has been very responsive too.
Central coast Brad's Review of Packing ProReviewed on 6/2/18 9:44 AM
This is a the best ever travel packing app in the world. I travel overseas several times a year, take a cruise or two each year as well. This app is great for all that, as you can start with their master list, then customize it to meet your own needs. As an example, I have Scandinavia list (cold gear), Caribbean cruise (hot & humid), Europe spring list and fall list etc. Makes my packing so much easier as well as reduces my OCD worry that I brought what I was going to need. I needed a backup recently and Quinn in their CustomerService department really helped out as well. Great product, extremely under priced for the value it provides. Go for it, you’ll love it. Brad from California.
Magmaryanne's Review of Packing ProReviewed on 6/2/18 7:41 PM
This app is great. Helps me keep track of all those stray packing items. I use it for every trip I take.
Jsong123's Review of Packing ProReviewed on 6/2/18 7:06 AM
It is a database. There is a catalog, which has items and their description. Then there are the lists, which select items from the catalog. Many features such as check boxes that can be reset.
Willore's Review of Packing ProReviewed on 6/2/18 5:58 PM
Best app to help me plan what to pack and check to make sure I packed it. Customizable. Love the app.
MKH!'s Review of Packing ProReviewed on 6/2/18 2:36 PM
Love this app! It’s so easy to keep all your needs organized. Also love the functions of checking items off and the master catalog reminding me of things I may need. Customer service is spot on, quick and helpful. Definitely recommend!
Wendy Robin's Review of Packing ProReviewed on 6/2/18 10:23 PM
I’ve been using this app for years and love it. Easy to make a new list from a previous one that is similar, and also includes space for non-packing to-dos.
gypsysmom's Review of Packing ProReviewed on 6/19/18 10:11 PM
This app and the shopping app are so, so helpful. And the customer service is FANTASTIC!
Ardelio's Review of Packing ProReviewed on 6/18/18 9:31 AM
I’ve used this app for trips for years and have found it very helpful! The UI could use an update to current iOS formats and it is sometimes difficult to navigate.

I can no longer import a list. I really liked this app until now. I guess I need to find a new one.
lorentjd's Review of Packing ProReviewed on 6/11/18 7:38 PM
I really like Packing Pro but one thing annoys the sh*t out of me: The syncing between the iPhone and iPad is delayed and sporadic. If data is being entered on one of the devices, it should show up immediately on the other device.
ausobosso's Review of Packing ProReviewed on 6/10/18 6:22 PM
For many years I kept all of my trip lists in a double column paper format. Then I found this app and never went back. Especially love being able to switch to things yet to pack/do when the list is dwindling but not yet done.
Echo squeeze's Review of Packing ProReviewed on 6/1/18 4:31 PM
I have been using this app for 5 years. It keeps me from having pre trip anxiety. Business trips, camping, extended European trips this app has helped me pack well for all of these!

Serious Target shopper's Review of Packing ProReviewed on 5/29/18 6:50 PM
I love this app. I love the flexibility to add a variety of items to my lists and organize them into groups. I can add an item just to my trip list or add an item to the master list if it is something I am going to need regularly. I also love the ability to add notes to each item if I want to clarify something specific for this specific trip (ex. Listing the specific sandals that I will take on the trip). When planning for my trip and I suddenly remember something to add, I can easily add it instead of forgetting when I get home to add to the packing pile or paper list. It is also great at identifying what I need to buy - either because I am out of something or need something special for the trip.
Jencat22's Review of Packing ProReviewed on 5/14/18 5:55 PM
I really like how flexible and customizable this app is. We used it on our recent Disney trip and only managed to forget packing one thing (cuff links) because I hadn’t added them to a list. I think this is the first time we went on a trip and only forgot one minor thing! I even got my husband to use it. The ability to add reminders is also very useful. The only thing missing that would make the app perfect is if it could sync in real time between devices for two users.
PArcher's Review of Packing ProReviewed on 5/1/18 3:27 PM
I loved this app on my iPad before. I had put it on my Touch, but had not taken the time to transfer my lists over until this new update. Wow! It was so easy to do the iCloud transfer. Everything worked perfectly. Lists transferred and kept my check marks I had on some items. Now I'll have my lists with my when I travel with my Touch. Great app and it just keeps getting better. Thanks Quinn! Update: I am still using this app with every trip and I still love it. I am not still using the Touch though! 🤣 But that just shows how long I’ve been loving this app! Still 5 stars!
Norcalpaw's Review of Packing ProReviewed on 4/6/18 8:40 PM
Another crappy app from the itunes store. Save your money, and look elsewhere for a good packing app!
Louie's Dad's Review of Packing ProReviewed on 4/5/18 2:45 AM
I got Packing Pro about five years ago because I kept forgetting things when packing for trips and paper lists weren’t always that useful. Once you master creating a personal list or modifying a sytem list, you can save it as a personal master list and use it over and over. I have one for long trips overseas, medium trips in the US, and long weekend trips. I can simply start with one of my standard lists and tweak it for different circumstances or weather. Really works as well as the reviews would suggest.
Dia.Tribe's Review of Packing ProReviewed on 4/4/18 1:15 PM
Even though I keep trying out new apps mainly due to the old fashioned design I keep coming back to this amazing app. It just does everything you would ever need. Do not be put off by the design and try it. If they would update the design I would never even try another app again.
satdissat's Review of Packing ProReviewed on 4/28/18 5:52 AM
I am one of those anal-retentive list-making people that loves clicking off done-done-done as I complete tasks. This app is like a fantasy come true. As I leave the house and I check off “turn off lights” and “lock door” I tick off “iPad” and slide the device in my bag. This app is literally with me nonstop during my trip preparation process. I have totally customized every category, adding my own particular items, and have added a host of personalized categories. I love all the different sort options. I have several annual trips and I like that I can duplicate a past trip’s list without losing the old one. Going through old lists is like memory lane. I also appreciate that I can uncheck everything and tick off everything again as I repack in my hotel room or cruise ship cabin. I can also make notes on the fly, and can indicate if I didn’t need a particular item and can, on my next trip, decide if it’s really worth bringing. My husband tried it out and immediately deemed it “too fussy” but I say it’s awesome. If you’re a Type-A control freak like me you’ll love this app like I do.
Makhfee's Review of Packing ProReviewed on 4/20/18 2:27 AM
I have not had any problems with it. Great app
NinaGo's Review of Packing ProReviewed on 4/2/18 3:12 AM
I have been using this app for several years. We travel a lot (road trips, day trips, by plane, cruises...). I have made all the lists and am able to tweak over time. It is so convenient. Adventure comes up, I pull up the appropriate list and completely prepared. No forgetting stuff or reinventing lists each time. I love how it syncs from one device to the next. So, I can work from my iPad or iPhone, whichever is handy. Completely recommend this app. It would not surprise me if this app was beneficial to those who struggle with ADHD, OCD, anxiety or need for control.

kfordham281's Review of Packing ProReviewed on 3/7/18 11:36 PM
I’ve used this application for a few years now and it was a good purchase. There is a little bit of a learning curve when you first begin using it, but there is a lot of power behind it as well. I don’t travel without using this application to pack!
Meribah1's Review of Packing ProReviewed on 3/13/18 3:47 PM
List apps should be simple with out a million steps. This app is so complex to create your own lists and items. It’s extremely frustrating and not user friendly at all. I do not recommend. Currently deleting
Mpeggy's Review of Packing ProReviewed on 2/4/18 12:20 PM
I have used this app for several years now. It has totally made my packing for large trips (overseas) and small trips much less stressful. I simply add what I think I will need and then check and recheck my list! I love that you can clear your list to use over and over. I’ve even added my medications as a sub-list so I don't leave anything out! I recommend this all the time to friends and family!

ismilez's Review of Packing ProReviewed on 2/20/18 10:35 AM
(Still loving it in 2018!) Very customizable, user-friendly app. Helps to make the anxiety-inducing task of packing (whether for a day hike or a six-month hiatus), much less stressful. This new update just makes this app that much more awesome. I emailed feedback directly to the developer and they got back to me right away with a thorough and thoughtful response. WOW! I have over 400 apps and this is one of my FAVORITES!! I can't imagine packing without it! 2018 UPDATE: I've been using this app consistently over the past several years (my first review was in 2012!) and it just keeps getting better! The developer is responsive and maintains reasonable and effective updates. This is one of the most consistently reliable and awesomely functional apps I use!! 💖
ScorpioUndone's Review of Packing ProReviewed on 2/18/18 2:03 PM
I tried half a dozen other list making apps and I love the flexibility this app gives me to make customized lists. The ability to add custom groups and items to the catalog means I can add all the stuff I need for a diving trip to any of the lists I’m working on with one click. 5 stars.
FastMrEddy's Review of Packing ProReviewed on 2/18/18 12:44 PM
Have used the app for several years. I find it very helpful. I particularly like to have the list in my Teo mobile devices. I wish there was an easier way to share lists. At the moment, I have to export list, forward to spouse, and then she imports it in her mobile device
Margrad's Review of Packing ProReviewed on 2/16/18 5:48 PM
It is a very versatile app. You can use as much or as little of the many features as you like. There are a lot of easy ways to customize it to your particular needs. I am always finding new features that I love. I have traveled all my life, starting as one of the first women to become a US Merchant Marine Officer. I studied abroad as a graduate student and I drug my husband all over the world on two and three week vacations. Over the years I kept many types of packing list. It was always a huge hassle when one got lost (misfiled).It wasn’t until I made Honolulu my home port that I found a packing list app. I loved that one and used it for a long time until I became confused and downloaded the wrong app to a new phone. It was a very lucky mistake. Packing Pro was very much like the other app, but far far better in usability and features. Over the years I have used it I have slowly began using more and more of it’s advanced features. The first of which was making different list for different trips. I loved it since I could make a list of every type of trip I would take. Different ships and different voyages required different clothes and equipment. It made it a breeze to make what is called “A Pierhead Jump”, where you are given only a short time to get your gear together before reporting to the ship. The next feature I found essential was the luggage icons. I spent several years traveling around the world as a Marine Surveyor between ships. Packing for those jobs was even more complicated than going to sea, because of all the specialized stuff I had to take. I used different suitcases for each sort of trip. It was very convenient to indicate which bag was being used and what was to go into each bag. The next thing I did was make Person icons for each role I lived in life and indicated all the items on my master list as being for each of the people I was; Surveyor, Chief Officer, Second Officer, Third Officer, or just plane Sandra. I retired from going to sea in 2017, and at that time a lot of my gear and suitcases retired as well. In a joyous ritual I deleted all my packing lists. (Of course I have a backup stored on Dropbox should I ever need them.) I am selling my house, getting rid of 80% of my junk and becoming a nomad. To prepare for this life I used the packing list from the “One bag” website and started afresh. Reviewing the packing list of other minimal travelers, especially those of active older women I refined my list to a good starting point. The next feature I began to use was the weight record. I piled up all the things that where on my tentative packing list and weighted each one. Since I am going for a very small weight in my bags, I record the exact weight in the Notes section, while entering the weight in whole ounces in the Weight section of the app. Having the weight with tenths down in the notes section works out really well, since it shows up next to the item in the list and makes it easier for me to pick out my heaviest clothes to wear on the plane. Who knew that a pair of slippers (flip flops) weighs more than my walking shoes? I have also found another use for designating which bag the item is going in. I created a bag called Think Again to hold items that I am not sure about or need to find a lighter one. Right now I have 7lbs I could drop from my luggage if need be, but I am under my total for the moment. That brings me to the totals section: What a great idea. You can see the total weight of all your bags (don’t forget to enter the weight of the empty bags); the weight of each bag; and the weight of each category of items. Another thing I love is that they have a tip jar. I really dislike subscription model apps, but I am more than happy to drop a few bucks into the tip jar every trip. Thanks to the Packing Pro team! I am now ready to travel the world without having to worry about getting back to my ship. (No cruise ships for me!)

DeltaIV's Review of Packing ProReviewed on 12/6/17 5:48 PM
I travel alot both for work and pleasure. And, being single and having no one else to help me remember, i need to make lists for my trips. Before this app ever came out I made packing lists and "to do" lists before and after the trip. I was ecstatic to find this app that already thought like I thought. I have been able to use this app immediately only adding very little to the already extensive built in items lists to choose from. This is a fantastic app and truly worth every penny. I never travel now without having used this app in preparation.
Robinsd's Review of Packing ProReviewed on 12/31/17 5:26 PM
I've been using this app for several years and it just keeps getting better. Easy to set up a simple list or extensive categories of items. Copy lists, integrate partial lists into other lists, and multiple back up options My last category is named "things that I want to bring next time" and I fill it with items while on the trip. So my trips keep getting better also.
TxGoodie's Review of Packing ProReviewed on 12/31/17 4:58 PM
This app is, as the kids say, The Bomb! As us over the hill crowd will testify, you HAVE to make a list for EVERYTHING! This app is just what my brain ordered! I love being able to add whatever I need to remember and delete items I don't need such as baby items. There is a learning curve, but don't let that scare you as this is as necessary as a suitcase if you ever forget anything!

Lookout Lady's Review of Packing ProReviewed on 12/19/17 7:04 PM
I just started using this for my last 2 trips. It took awhile to get my old packing lists sorted and loaded the way I wanted them. The ap has a few more bells and whistles than I need. I would like to be able to name my own categories. None the less, it is working well and I plan to continue using this ap instead of printing a new list every time I go somewhere.

Due to user error I had an issue using Packing Pro. I sent an email to Quinn who provided the answer very quickly. That is what I call great support. I had a travel list several years ago that I like very much. Unfortunately, the developer stopped updates and the app no longer worked with later iOS upgrades. I am planning a trip over seas and wanted an app I could use for a checklist. I purchased the app based on reviews and endorsements. For the short time that I have had the app, I am impressed and happy with my purchase. I did send a suggestion to Quinn that a sort by checked/unchecked would be nice since it is easy to miss one unchecked entry among many checked entries.

I have used this app since it was introduced. I love it. I have used it for an overnight stay, and also used it to prepare for a 2 week vacation. I like the fact that you can start a list far in advance to prepare for the trip. I recommend it highly. Well worth the cost.
BecksMom07's Review of Packing ProReviewed on 10/30/17 2:43 AM
It took a little getting used to, but once I understood the difference between adding items to a master list and then to an individual list it went from a chore to brilliantly easy. I spent sometime reorganizing Lists to work best for me. I love how easy they made it to move items to new or different categories. Now when I get an idea of something to get for camping, hiking, the beach, etc I just add it to the master list, then to my trip list and mark it as something I need to purchase at a later date. Before my next trip I’ve got my reminder right there to purchase anything I don’t have or ran out of. Love it! Great job! Thank you. Tried many other apps but they just didn’t understand what is needed in a packing app and they were worthless list apps.
Jrev1's Review of Packing ProReviewed on 10/28/17 12:54 PM

pl_oakland's Review of Packing ProReviewed on 10/12/17 1:22 PM
I have used this app for years and still love it - something I can say for only a handful of apps! It has more features than I use - I can see the benefit of the full drawer of tools - it as a user who only uses the basics, it still works great and the things I do not use do not get in the way. Highly recommend.

leebracken's Review of Packing ProReviewed on 1/13/18 8:05 PM
I have used this app for years and it was once a favorite. Initially it was easy to use, intuitive, and simple. It is now complex, cumbersome, and confusing to use. With the recent app update, I cannot even open any of my previously created and saved lists. Dialog boxes flash on the screen and error messages pop up regularly. It has really gone downhill.
