Access popular USPS.com® tools on the go with the “USPS Mobile® app: calculate shipping prices (limitations apply), find a Post Office™, look up a ZIP Code™, 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 Office™, 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 Code™ 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 Office™ 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.

Ratings and Reviews
My Go-To App
I use the USPS app primarily for tracking any expected incoming packages and the status of packages and other parcels that I’ve sent. This includes items sent overseas. It lets me know when I can expect delivery at the destination. The USPS app helps me to use their services with confidence from my laptop or mobile device anywhere. This app lets me determine the best prices and options for shipping items. As the USPS often serves as the “last mile” carrier for the other package delivery companies, this is shown on the USPS tracking information. And it allows me to hold my mail when I’m out of town. The U.S. Postal Service and their employees are very dependable and deliver my mail and packages with professionalism and reliability. My regular neighborhood mail carrier is familiar with many of the people on her route and makes sure that delivered packages are either safety locked in the neighborhood package mailbox or brought up to my front door entrance and placed in a location not visible from the street. This is greatly appreciated as package thieves are rampant here. The USPS app lets me know the package has been delivered.
I am really appreciative of this informed delivery service, because I truly believe that where I live, the super of the building has the main key to the mailboxes. However I am highly disappointed that for any mail larger than a regular sized envelope pictures aren’t taken. I am in a building where this no good man is getting away with a federal crime and I truly need a picture of every last piece of mail coming into my mailbox because USPS has not changed the main mailbox key even though I complained about this many years ago to USPS . How long should this man be able to do this ? I don’t know. But i truly think he and his sons have been doing identity theft with my identity. I’m trying to get the proof. However no super of any building should have the main key to the building he lives and works out of because it’s creating a perfect storm for a person of nefarious intentions like himself. Thank You and I truly hope the right person reads this and it could cause some kind of change in my building. Thanks again.
APIs Still Working, But Alas Not the App/UI
It’s a constant struggle to actually get accurate informed delivery information, but it’s like every other week there’s something wrong with the server, causing a complete block out from the site. It’s been over a year since the last update was officially made to this app and quite frankly, it’s well past time for another update.
There has been a longstanding issue with the app cutting off the upper section of the incoming mail & packages count, I’ve submitted multiple reports of this to the apparent offshore support team through the app (which that in and of itself is flawed; e.g. it doesn’t remain automatically refreshed like it should do as you wait for an agent on their Salesforce site), yet nothing ever happens to address the issue.
For how much we pay for postal services, you’d think we could actually get these fixes resolved rather quickly and at least receive some sort of notification from USPS when their services are unavailable, along with an estimated time for remediation of the issue(s)…That’s what our own customers expect and I see no reason why they couldn’t do the same for us.
