In addition to providing a convenient way of creating & managing travel packing lists, Packing Pro 9.0 adds several new family-friendly features, such as list filtering by both person and bag, filter-related enhancements to its Expert list making tool, new list total breakdowns by person and bag, and an option to email-export a partial, filtered portion of a list to an individual family member. "Packing Pro is perfect for families and all travelers who wish to avoid excess baggage fees," says Quinn Genzel, the founder and developer of QuinnScape.
