PackPoint organizes what you need to pack based on length of travel, weather at your destination, and any activities planned during your trip.
Packing, oftentimes, can be one of the most stressful aspects of travel. It’s tough to know exactly what you’re going to need on your vacation, no matter how many times you check the weather or look over your itinerary. PackPoint is a mobile app that aims to simplify the packing process. After downloading the app, PackPoint asks you to list a few things about yourself and your upcoming travels. You enter in your gender, the city that you will be traveling to, the amount of nights you will be staying, and the purpose of your trip (as in business or leisure).
After you enter in those details, PackPoint asks you to name a few activities that you will be doing on the trip. You can select from the list of common activities built into the app (with a PackPoint premium subscription), or add your own custom activities. The app then returns a list of items you should bring with, based on the weather forecast for your trip, the length of stay you indicated, and the activities you chose. You can swipe to remove certain items, or rearrange based on your own needs. PackPoint tends to suggest more items than you’ll probably want to take, but it does serve as a great starting point for the packing process. Also, even if you add all of the items you need on your own, PackPoint still offers a helpful and stress-free way to get organized before a big trip.
