Besides the under-the-hood revamp, dozens of UI & UX improvements were also made.
Taipei, Taiwan (PRWEB) May 17, 2016
Today, QuinnScape announces the release of Packing Pro 12.0, a major upgrade that fully modernizes this 7-year old iOS travel app. It has dropped support for iOS 6 & 7 and now fully embraces iOS 8 & 9. Over 20,000 lines of code were revised or completely re-written, leading to much smoother operation on current devices. Besides this under-the-hood revamp, big improvements in design & user experience were also made, and a few new features were added as well, such as search & sort in the Master Catalog. Search was also brought out of hiding on list pages, for extra convenience.
During the seven years Packing Pro has been on Apple’s App Store, it has been highlighted several times. Currently, it can be found in the “Travel Survival Kit” and “Travel Expenses” promotions. It has also ranked at #1 for iPads and #2 for iPhones in the U.S. App Store's Travel section. Besides Apple, Packing Pro has also been recognized by CNN, WSJ, BBC, The New York Times, Expedia and Budget Travel, and has earned glowing reviews on major tech and app blogs (Gizmodo, Mashable, Macworld, CNET and iPhone Life, among others).
