    Great iPhone App for Packing List & To-Do For Travelers: TripList

    Hey TB folks,

    I wanted to quickly share an interesting iPhone app for creating a packing and to-do list for traveling. It's called TripList, exclusively for the iPhone and iPad, sorry I don't think there is an Android version yet. I just downloaded it and created a packing list in about 5 minutes, very clean interface and simple to use. It's free with small ads on the bottom of the screen, there is an ad-free version for $2.99. I always seem to forget to pack at least one thing so this app should help me to bring everything I need. I hope this app is helpful to my fellow TB travelers. :-)

    Thanks!!

    Thanks for the tip! I currently use Packing Pro - possibly not as quick and easy as TripList, but I love the way you can build a custom list of bags and assign each item to one of them - perfect for the OCD organisers among us! (Though I have to resist the temptation to list every TB cube/pouch and its contents...). It also syncs between iPhone and iPad via the cloud, so I usually set up lists on my iPad and then use the iPhone to check everything off whilst packing.

    Collections:
    Work EDC: SE + S19 (summer); SE + SA (winter)
    Leisure: some combination of SE/SCB/MCB/Swift/LS/FJN/DLBC/Imago/SSB
    Travel: WF + Pilot/DLBP + SE/SCB or SA + SE/SCB
    General organisation: More pouches, stuff sacks and cubes than you can shake a keystrap at!
    Favourite TB colours: aubergine, forest (sniff!), linen, wasabi, UV
    Hoping for: FJN for iPad Mini + Moleskine; a Linen Side Effect; the return of Portable Culture!

    No problem scribe, I'm always happy to share travel tips with my fellow TB board members. I'll definitely check out Packing Pro.

    Thanks!!

    Anyone have a good recommendation for Android? I haven't looked into any of the myriad options, but I thought perhaps someone might have....

    @jmoz, if it helps: I use Evernote. I have all my packing lists tagged so I can look at them and assemble a new list quickly. I used to have some packing apps but I've found that Evernote is perfect for me and is available on all my devices.

    I'm the same as Badger. I use Evernote and have a separate Travel notebook, and have sub-folders per country. Packing lists for each trip are placed in those sub-folders and have a tag for "Packing List" and the name of the country.
