Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - If you're packing up for your big summer vacation and dreading the "Are we there yets?" and the "Did I remember everything".

You can head to your smartphone for help, with at least one of them, because there's an app for that.

If you want to prevent the summer vacation mishaps found in the movies, the appropriately titled iPhone app called Stow can help. It's a list for list makers and it takes all of the stress out of remembering everything you need for your trip.

Stow starts with packing list templates. They can be adjusted for the type of trip; business or pleasure, beach or mountains, and you can even combine them. If none of them fit the bill, you can make your own.

Then, you select your dates and decide who you are packing for. The app then asks basic questions to help build the list, about glasses, medications and all those essentials. Stow even factors in the weather and asks if you if you have laundry available.

From there you can add and subtract items and customize it for your needs, right down to the sunglasses and souvenirs.

As you’re packing you can check off the items that are packed. Stow tells you what you haven't so you don't forget a thing. You can even email and print the list.

Stow is simple to use. Put "packed" with features that will help you become one of those organized travelers you envy

Stow is $1.99 and right now only available in the Apple market.
