Download the new USPS Mobile App for your iPhone

December 15th, 2011

USPS Mobile® gives you instant, on-the-go access to the most popular tools on USPS.com®.

A new version of the U.S. Postal Service® application for iPhone® devices lets users schedule a free next-day package pickup, order expedited shipping supplies and scan package barcodes. These new features build on services already available through USPS Mobile technology, including the ability to use the track and confirm tool, locate a nearby Post Office™ and find a ZIP Code™.

Among the new features, iPhone users will be able to schedule a next-day pickup. They’ll get email confirmations when the request is made, when the package is picked up and when the pickup request is modified or canceled. The app will enable integration with the contact list on the user’s iPhone.

Another new feature will let iPhone users order free expedited shipping supplies. They can choose from Express Mail® and Priority Mail® boxes and envelopes, and select quantities desired. They’ll be able to save a record of the order on their iPhones. Also, the “calculate-a-price” feature has been upgraded to include both online and retail prices.

Additionally, a new scanner feature will enable iPhone* users to scan barcodes on USPS® shipping labels as well as “quick response” codes. The app stores the label number so users can easily check the status of their shipments.

    So, I get your blog summery as my account email updates.

    2 Things you failed to do:

    1. You failed to promote the USPS Android app, instead of promoting iphones, you should have done some research to know that Android devices sales has been higher than iphones for the past 2 years, combine that with black berry sales and there is no competition. The Android USPS app is used by more online sellers than the iphone USPS app.

    2. Talking about mobile, your blog is not optimized for mobile view, therefore very heavy to watch on smart phones (any smart phone). Try to use a mobile theme for mobile views.

    Thank you.

    When is the app going to be available for Android users?  I don’t have an iPad or iPhone and don’t have any intention of buying either.
