What's New

This major update (on the heels of Packing Pro’s 7th anniversary) includes a big overhaul of the app’s backend coding — over 20,000 lines have been updated or rewritten. Support has been dropped for iOS 6 & 7, but devices on iOS 8 & 9 now function much more smoothly. Once again, as always, this is a totally free update.

HUGE changes that improve editing & list-making organization & efficiency:

- You can now SMART SEARCH / QUICK ADD on all Master Catalog pages
- List page search is also improved - plus, it’s come out of hiding!
- SORT option added to each level of the Master Catalog
- New function to capitalize or uncapitalize Master Catalog types & items
- Extra options for ‘Add List to List’ function

Other nice improvements:

- Tap page title to quickly scroll back to top, and to SEARCH on list & catalog pages
- Save multi-line notes for lists & items
- More robust iCloud Drive auto-syncing
- Smoother rotations & animations
- Fixed some long-standing layout & transition issues
- Added extra space for editing on iPhones
- Added extra assistance for app badge settings
- Fixed a badge bug that sometimes showed a number of remaining items, even when list was empty (thanks Johann!)
- Fixed bug that ignored ‘Disable Auto-lock’ setting on later re-launch
- Fixed some web-connection bugs

Since so many things were changed with this update, if you encounter any bugs, please let me know (and be patient & understanding). Thanks for all your feedback & support, and stay tuned for more updates!
