Packing Pro, QuinnScape‘s popular travel app for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, has just been updated. Version 8.1 makes list making even easier and smoother, as well as increases the flexibility of the 800+ item Master Catalog and improves the reliability of iCloud auto-sync.
Streamlined improvements include configurable Quick Add behavior, smoother direct entry of sequential list items, auto-addition of new & imported items to the Master Catalog and helpful animations, among others. The Master Catalog has become even more flexible by allowing both two- and three-level structure, vs the previously rigid 3-level ‘Category-Type-Item’ organization. Several iCloud auto-sync related bugs were also fixed in this version.
