What's New in Version 10.0

In celebration of Packing Pro’s 5th anniversary, here’s a MAJOR UPDATE with two new features that I (and many of you) have wanted to add for a long time. They’ve made the app twice as useful (or 1000x!):

- **NEW** ADD IMAGES TO YOUR ITEMS! A picture is worth 1000 words — which saves a LOT of typing!
- **NEW** ADD ALERTS TO YOUR LISTS, ITEMS & TO-DO TASKS!

These transform Packing Pro from a hazy, passive packing list app into a picture-perfectly clear and pro-active one. And both work well with iCloud!

Data protection & backup improvements:

- Added a convenient ‘1-tap backup to email’ function w/ reminders
- Fixed a bug affecting non-backed up data & device restoring
- Added extra backup protection & recovery coding
- Reduced size of data files to save space & speed up launch times & iCloud syncing

Other additions & fixes:

- Added reminders for missed alerts
- Added note & image icons to Master Catalog items, and image & alert icons to list items
- Now, reorder all your list categories in one go
- Fixed a bug affecting adding new people or bags (thanks, Pierre!)
- Fixed a rare bug involving old themes & crashing
- Fixed a rare start-up crashing bug
- Fixed a bug that kept asking for reviews in some cases (sorry!)
- Fixed a bug that in some cases prevented full editing due to locked scrolling (thanks, Keri!)
- Fixed a broken link to ‘Gift This App’
- Fixed some language translation coding
