Stow 2 is designed to create instant travel lists based on the criteria and trip description you provide to the app. The result, while not perfect every time, is a very accurate travel companion that will help you remember those little things that always seem to get left behind. With quick setup, flexible input options, and numerous integrations with third-party travel apps, it's a very useful tool for anyone who travels frequently.
After installation, you are prompted to create a persona for traveling. This persona is not a log-in. Rather it is an outline of the person who will be traveling that includes gender, rough age, and a nickname. You can also connect the app to a third-party tool like TripIt but that is optional. After creating your persona, you can create a new packing list, which involves describing the type of trip, the duration of that trip, when you'll be leaving, and who will be going on the trip with you (if anyone). Once done the app will automatically populate a list of common essentials, but you can edit the list at any time to add other things to it. The interface here is clean, effective, and always helpful in prompting you to the next step.
The result is an extremely useful app that will help you remember the small things that tend to slip through the cracks on business trips, vacations, and more. Useful for a single person, this app is almost essential for a large family that must juggle half a dozen suitcases and carry-ons for even the shortest trip. It's a must-download, free app for anyone who is planning a big trip or for those who travel frequently.
