Packing Pro Travel App for iOS Gets a Major Update

QuinnScape has released Packing Pro 12.0, a major upgrade for the 7-year old iOS travel app. Version 12.0 now supports all devices running on iOS 8 and 9, new search and sort functions in the Master Catalog, as well as a more convenient search tool on list pages.

QuinnScape says over 20,000 lines of code were revised or completely re-written, leading to much smoother operation on current devices. The design and user experience were also revamped, and a few new features were added as well, such as search & sort in the Master Catalog.
