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’

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.

It's essential

I love PackTheBag! I use it for every trip, whether just a weekend or several weeks of international travel. I love that I can reuse past list, customize items, and sort in a variety of ways. Thanks for keeping me sane before my trips.
