No need to stress about packing. Using the Packing Pro application, you’ll be told exactly what to do and bring for your trip.

When you’re going on a long trip, you’ll probably need to go on the internet a few times to at least check your email. If you’re using public wifi, you need to download the Private WiFi application.
