    Hi Mike,

    It still doesn’t seem to work. Here is a comment I received on my PCT blog where I’m sharing my pack. Does your fix by any chance require me to go back through all entries and replace the link to my pack with a new link?

    Manfred,

     

    I just tried the link and it worked for me. Could they possibly be on a slow connection…. It is a bit deceiving that when it’s loading pack contents it actually says pack is private….I can fix that tonight when I get home to show it’s loading instead.

     

    If that doesn’t work see if they can clear their browser cache and try again.

    Josh, hope all is going well! Yea the web version is very much beta compared tot he app. There are a whole lot of corner cases when it comes to subscription checking on the web. Long story as a result of the SDK I use for handling purchases…

    Anywho, I just logged in and fixed that for you so you should be able to create more then 5 packs on the web as a paying user :-)

    Pushing out a new update tonight! Should be live ina. few hours on Android. Should be live by Monday for iOS.

     

    New update adds a much requested feature to be able to choose what your default calories per day are for the calorie tracking summary card. It used to default to 3000 calories, and then you would have to slide the slider to view the data for a different daily calorie estimate.

    Now you can go to your settings and select the default :-)

    New update pushed yesterday live on Android and should be live today or tomorrow for iOS. I added the ability for pro users to Archive packs.

    Archiving packs is useful, if you have been using the app for a while like me and just have too many packs in your main list. Archiving the pack does not delete it, it just removes it from your main pack list, and can be viewed and edited from the Archive list found in settings.

    This is also helpful if you have a ton of sub packs, you can archive them to remove them from your main list. If a sub pack is archived it is still able to be added to a pack. Additionally archived packs that are public are still shareable etc.

    Archive a pack by clicking the 3 dots while viewing a pack and select “Archive Pack”:

    Hi Mike,

    My iPhone shows me right now just a grey box for my two of my packs. All other packs show correctly. The two packs are my ‘PCT 2024’ and my ‘PCT 2024 – Sierra Pack’ – of course this happens right before leaving tomorrow for the Mexican border. Luckily the desktop app works and I’m now 100% packed.

    hey Mike,

    been thinking about this for a min and had an idea.  take your idea for sub packs to your gear closet except they would be bins (like you’d organize and store gear at home) so you could group similar gear into a bin like clothing, stoves(cooking), or how ever you want to group your stuff and then from each bin you could either add the entire bin or select things from that bin to a pack or even subpack.

    Manfred,

    Hope all is going well on your trip and best of luck! Apologies for the error, and the delayed response. I have actually been snowshoe backcountry camping in Yosemite. I think I just fixed the bug, so uploading a new version to google right now and will have the new upload to iOS shortly after!

    Josh J,

    Good to hear from you! I think I may have had similar ideas to you bin idea. I was thinking something similar to the pack view in the gear lock, where there are summary cards to help see what gear you have by item type, manufacturer etc. So you can filter your gear locker easily.

    I think that would be helpful or even having the ability to pick certain items out of your sub packs to add to your pack and/ or all the sub pack. There are times that would be helpful. Like if I group my clothing between warm, cold or shoulder season may not want everything in the sub pack.
