When the trip is planned and all there's left to do is pack, The app Packr will be your new best friend.

Users give the app a destination, dates and plans, including where they intend to stay, how you'll get there and specific activities. Users can also add a baby that you're packing for or a pre-trip to-do list.

For example: I'm dreaming up a weekend in Alabama, with some beach time, swimming, jogging and a nice dinner.

Based on what you select and the weather forecast, Packr makes a list of what you'll need and how many of each item you should bring. Users can also utilize the app to find attractions and additional activities near their destination.

Once the packing has begun, users can check each item off a list, then switch settings to show "unpacked items only."

If traveling with a group, users can share lists through the app, or print them out for others.

The more the Packr app is used, the better it learns the users habits. It will even customize lists accordingly for stress free travel.
