Maybe it's because it doesn't promise to change your life (it won't) and you don't need to use it every day (you won't), but PackPoint is quickly becoming the only app I have any interest in.

It's thought of everything (Did you bring your business cards? Enough underwear—or will there be opportunities for laundry?) down to any impending weather disasters.

In the week since I've downloaded it, I've already generated lists for three trips—all that's missing are my vacation days...
