Suitcases - App Review



Do you carefully make a packing list before going away... and hen dutifully destroy it.

What you need to pack for a short business trip, or sun/ski holiday are hardly the same (barring a few essentials). This neat App has it all covered.

Now for the ACIDS test:

Aesthetics
There are a few default lists that have been prepared for you as starting points or, if you would prefer, just start a completely new list by pressing the '+'. You are now about to create your first packing list.

Let's use the 'Business Trip' as our template.

Tapping the pencil icon allows you to change the name of any item, as well as add quantities.

Pressing the '+' again will allow you to create new items... how about trying that and adding iPad to 'Essentials'.

Any item you do not require, just scroll left and 'put aside'.

You very rapidly end up with a list that makes your packing much easier.

Once that's done, simply touch to the left of the item you have actually packed.

The great thing is that the list can be made to reappear just by pressing the refresh icon.


Cost
The App is a low cost $1.

Indispensability
How much time to you spend writing the same (or very similar) packing lists. Surely not doing that is worth the $1.

Dependability
The App works fine on both iPhone and iPad.

Security
No issues.

ACIDS Test Rating:

Beautifully simple.

  1. The developer advises that there has been an update to version 3.0 of the App.

    This includes the following enhancements and alterations:

    - a new unique option: you now can send your list by e-mail to anyone with the Suitcase app version 3.0 or higher. Received lists get transferred to the app and saved as a new list. You can use the same method to save your most important lists so they never get lost.
    - landscape view for iPad is available now!
    - design and interface got updated. Creating and adding your own category, lists and items is more user-friendly now: it’s all done with the plus sign at the bottom.

    We listen to our users and implement the best ideas. Quite often you ask to add iCloud syncing. We work in this direction and it will be, but until we recommend you to save all your important lists, just in case.

  4. The developer advises that there has been an update to version 3.2 of the App.

    This includes the following enhancements and alterations:

    Warning! Please make backup of your important lists before this update! In rare case it crashes after update on all iOS versions.
    Go to List (info) and send by e-mail to yourself. Then, delete the app and re-install again - app will work 100%.
    After it open e-mail and tap on file .suitcases for a 2 sec - choose Open in Suitcases. Thus your data will be restored.
    This actual for less than 1% users, by the way we are looking for solution...

    This is last version with iOS 6.x support.
    - fixed very seldom bug which prevented sending list by e-mail;
    - fixed some minor bugs;
    - ready for iOS 8.0
