Happy 4th Birthday, uPackingList (Promo Codes Giveaway!)July 18th, 2013
It’s been whole 4 years since uPackingList first came out. The app has gone through many changes but it’s become just better: with new features and friendlier interface. Let’s celebrate its birthday by going over its history.
First Steps of The Travel App
Developers from NIX Solutions are busy people who travel a lot. As business trips are a great part of their lives they tried to find an app that would help packing saving more time for work and life. But the search wasn’t crowned with success – either interface was too complicated or adding lists was troubled. It was settled then: NIX Solutions will release a mobile application appealing to user.
There were 2 versions in the beginning – free and paid. The free one contained ads and the paid one didn’t. That was the only difference. The guys from Apple didn’t approve the application at first, but after everything controversial was eliminated, users could enjoy the app’s features at full.
Features That Makes You Travel Smooth
Take all you’ll need on a trip with uPackingList app. Your phone or tablet is with you at all times, so you can add items to the list on your way to work/home/party/etc – whenever a thought crossed your mind. Just a couple of taps and it’s there.
So what do you get with uPackingList?
- Fast check of the items with the user-friendly interface.
- Various locations – various lists. Create as many of them as you want.
- Think of the thing you missed to take with you on the last trip. Check if it’s already in ready-to-use in the catalogue with more than 300 items. If not – send a hint to us.
- Update the lists with one tap. That’s all you need to to add or remove the item.

The application became popular among iPhone users and we decided to release a version for Android and Bada. Their features don’t differ much from the iPhone ones. And right now we are working on Windows Desktop and Windows 8 versions.
iCloud feature is one of the upcoming news. For now it’s possible to export/import lists via Bluetooth and iTunes, but our users will enjoy the synchronization feature in a while.
Women love this app. They take care of the house, family, and children and of course themselves. No wonder they make the majority of the users.
People’s needs and convenience is the motto of all our developments, as we always think about users and their needs. 4 years ago there were not that many apps for packing and we decided to make a perfect helper while going on holiday, business trip or any kind of traveling. The app evolved and new features appeared while uPackingList grew. The users helped us to make it much better by sending their suggestions and reviews.
