#2: Packing Pro
So, you have packed everything up, you say? Where is your phone? When we are in a haste or with so much excitement, we tend to lose focus on things around us—usually the small yet very important ones.

Packing Pro helps you organize your list, and it gives you an extra piece of mind. From your mobile accessories, to your luggage full of clothes, and everything in between, you can determine the packaged weight and expense of your luggage. [£1.99 - iOS]
