Best packing app (and I’ve tried a lot!)
This is by far the best packing app. I’ve looked at others over the years but have never ended up using them. Not only does it have the basics but one features I actually use all the time is the ability to specify the location of an item to be packed and then be able to sort by location when packing - which is perfect if you have things in storage. I wish it had a little more designed look and some of the menu items are not laid out in the best way but the overall functionality is so great that I overlook that. Lastly it would be great to have cloud integration and a way to access from a desktop. I would love to be able to not only share my lists but also have others edit as well. Right now you can only export to share. Despite that it is a great app’
Developer Response ,
Thanks a lot for your review. I will put the collaboration feature on my Todo list :)
My Go-to app!
I use the app for every overnight trip we take! So easy to use. Has an editable pre-packing list with things I would have easily forgotten. I love that I can re-use old lists instead of starting from scratch. I can easily add new items and/or categories. For example I know I'll probably never go sailing so I changed that category to 'cruising' and removed some of the old items and added new ones. It will tell you if something you add is in another category in case you don't want to add it twice. This thing has saved me from forgetting key items on my trips. There's also a 'notes' area which i use for flight or hotel confirmation numbers. There's areas to take pics of items and add their location if you are forgetful like me. I HIGHLY recommend!!
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.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
