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

Packpoint, a free app for iPhone or Android, constructs an easy-to-use packing list whether you’re traveling for business or leisure, taking just the basics, bringing a baby or planning to do laundry.

The lists made with Packpoint are smart and quick to create. You can choose items based on activities on your itinerary and add original items. After you create a list to your liking, you can save it and use it again for another trip. The app also lets you know what the weather will be like at your destination, saving you time.
