Packing made easier

If you find making a packing list a chore, you might consider this app a friend.

Name: Packpoint.

Available: iOS, Android.

Cost: Free.

What it does: Constructs an easy-to-use packing list, whether you're traveling for business or leisure, taking just the basics or a baby, or plan to do laundry.

What's hot: The lists made with Packpoint were smart and quickly created. I was able to choose items based on activities on my itinerary and add original items I wanted to include. After you create a list to your liking, you can save it and use it again for another trip. Do you make packing lists for others? You can share them by e-mail, text message, Twitter, and Facebook. It also lets you know what the weather will be like at your destination, saving you time and the extra step of searching a separate app or website.

What's not: I would like to print my list wirelessly to a local printer. I don't think I've seen that feature on other apps. I e-mailed my list to myself to get a printable copy.
