Whenever you’re preparing for a trip, remembering to pack all the right items is essential.
There’s nothing worse than getting to your destination and discovering you forgot an essential item, like a bathing suit or umbrella.
An app called PackPoint is a great way to minimize this travel trauma, because it helps you pack based on where you’re going and what you’re doing.
It starts by asking you your gender, destination, number of nights you’re staying and the activities you’re planning on doing.
It then checks the weather at your destination and assembles a suggested packing list.
You simply scroll down the list and pick the items that are relevant to you to create your own customized list, including reminders to take business cards, cell phone chargers and VPN keyfobs if it’s a business trip.
Once you’re done, you can share your packing list via e-mail or copy and paste the list to any other program for future use.
PackPoint is free and available for both iPhone and Android smartphone users.
