USPS MOBILE for Android

By United States Postal Service Free Editors' Rating

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Sep 12, 2014

USPS Mobile is the all-in-one application for handling your postal needs because of its sleek design and multitude of tools. While many great features are offered by this program, it requires a lot of power to run and can be occasionally off-base, so your experience will vary.

Pros

Large toolkit: USPS Mobile offers many tools that are easy to use, such as package pickup and scanning parcel tracking codes. We found the price calculation and coupon features helpful for those that want to ensure ultimate savings. Those that frequently ship packages will enjoy the free supply purchasing tool.

Appealing, smooth design: The deep blue color scheme gives USPS Mobile a powerful vibe. We found the map tool to be spacious, and switching between the other features was seamless thanks to the fast processing speed of this program.

Cons

Power consumption: Our battery had drained 5 percent after only 15 minutes of using this program, which will likely discourage you from using USPS Mobile for an extended period of time. This heavy consumption is probably due to the barcode scanner, GPS, and data required to conduct basic affairs with USPS.

Inaccurate data: It appears as though USPS Mobile is slow to update when packages are delivered, as we still saw our parcels as "In-Transit" for quite some time after they had already been delivered. This wasn't a common occurrence but did cause confusion.

Bottom Line

USPS Mobile meets most of our expectations and is a reliable application where it counts. No other mobile applications have access to USPS content, so USPS Mobile is unique in that regard; however, you should keep in mind that other shipping services are available.

Developer's Description

Access popular USPS.com tools on the go with the "USPS Mobile app: calculate shipping prices (limitations apply), find a Post Officeâ?¢, look up a ZIP Codeâ?¢, schedule a next-day pickup, request USPS to hold your mail, access Informed Delivery to track packages and digitally preview incoming mail, and more.

WHAT CAN IT DO?

The USPS Mobile app allows you to:

  • Check the status of shipments sent using Priority Mail , Priority Mail Express , Certified Mail , and certain other delivery services. Nickname your shipments and sign up for text and email alerts to notify you of the delivery status.
  • Calculate a Domestic or International Price to determine how much postage you will need when you ship a letter, card, large envelope, or package (limitations apply). Choose retail or online pricing, add any extra services you need, and view the total, too.
  • Find USPS Locations when you need to get to a Post Officeâ?¢, Self-Service Kiosk (APC ) or collection box with an easy-to-filter locator. The USPS Mobile app uses your device's GPS to show your closest options on a map, along with their Regular Hours, Special Hours and Last Collection Times, and provides mapped results with driving, walking, or transit directions.
  • Look up a ZIP Codeâ?¢ for any U.S. or Canadian address.
  • Schedule a free next-day pickup and have your Letter Carrier pick up Priority Mail , Priority Mail Express , Global Express Guaranteed , or Merchandise Return Services shipments from your home or office during regular mail delivery.
  • Request Hold Mail Service while you're away, and we'll keep your mail at your local Post Officeâ?¢ for you to pick up or be delivered by your carrier when you return.
  • Scan the barcode on shipping labels with your device's camera (Note: this function is not available on iPad 1 and iPod Touch models without rear-facing cameras). The app recognizes the shipment and stores the label number, so you can stay on top of delivery status.
  • Link to Informed Delivery to track packages and digitally preview your household's incoming mail arriving soon; view grayscale images of the exterior, address side of letter-sized mailpieces.
