Going away on vacation can be a lot of fun, but the choresome process of packing your bags and making sure you have everything you need can sap some of the enthusiasm before you even get going. That’s where PackPoint‘s ‘intelligent’ packing list app comes in, and from today, iPhone owners can use it too.

The app already launched for Android devices to some fanfare earlier in the year, but the company has wasted no time in making a version available for Apple’s mobile hardware, which makes sense given the number of people toting iPhones, iPads and iPod Touches. While it will work on the latter two, it’s only optimized for the iPhone right now.

Just like the Android incarnation, PackPoint quickly guides you through its unique packing process to ensure you have everything you need for your trip away (whether it’s work or pleasure) without having to wrack your brain to remember everything.

It uses a few simple questions – like asking your gender, your destination, when you’re travelling and what sorts of activities you’re likely to be taking part in – to draw up a list of suggested items that you might need, including clothes, gadgets, toiletries, accessories and more.

While the app won’t actually pack your bags for you, it will give you a good idea of what essentials you really should remember without needing much in the way of input. Now all you need to do is the washing and ironing – and remember your tickets, of course.
