Look up a ZIP Code. Locate nearby postal locations. Find shipping prices. Track packages. Get delivery information. The Postal Service is proud to announce that more than one million iPhone, iPod touch and iPad customers have downloaded the U.S. Postal Service app.
“We’re expanding access to our products and services,” said Postmaster General Patrick R. Donahoe. “We know simpler is better – a million mobile customers can’t be wrong.”
Since the application was launched in December 2009, it has consistently been one of the top 10 free business apps in the App Store. USPS Mobile gives instant, on-the-go access to the most popular tools on USPS.com making it easy for customers to:
- Find USPS Locations when you need to get to a Post Office, Automated Postal Center, or collection box. You’ll see your closest options and even see your results on a map to get driving, walking, or transit directions. Or search for locations anywhere in the country.
- Look up a ZIP Code for your current location. Or get the ZIP Code for any U.S. address.
- Calculate a Price to determine how much postage you need for your letter, card, envelope, or package.
- Use Track & Confirm to track your Express Mail shipments and check the status of packages sent with other services. You can give your shipment a nickname and save it in the app, so you can easily keep tabs on your items until they’re delivered.
Download the USPS App free from the iTunes App Store for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Or, for more information, go to usps.com/mobile/info.htm.
The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses, and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.
