HOLIDAY TRAVEL | Packing (+To Do)
Holiday traveling with kids can be a pain. Not only are there baby clothes to pack but diapers, strollers and car seats - we're stressed just thinking about it! Never fear, terrified parents: Packing (+To Do) will keep you organized and prepared. This app allows you to create unlimited packing lists and customize them by deleting or adding items to fit your travel plans. Sample lists are available, as well as lists made specifically for male or female travelers and light packers. Items may be sorted by what's packed and what's still unpacked, and those traveling by plane can keep track of their items' total weight to avoid those overweight-luggage fees.
GIFT GIVING | (iThankYou)
(iThankYou) mixes new technology with old tradition. The app lets you keep track of the gifts you’ve received, who they came from and what they look like. Then you can mark when you’ve mailed out a thank-you card for a gift so you can see who you still need to thank. Neat feature: If you received a gift from someone in your iPhone’s address book, the app will pull his or her address so it’s readily available when it’s time to label your envelope.
