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.
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.
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.
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.
