Need instant access? Try USPS Mobile

The Postal Service is continuing its 235-year tradition of serving America, whether it’s with a mobile device, online or in a Post Office.

It’s a fast-paced world. Customers who want instant access to postal services like Track and Confirm, Schedule-a-Pickup or Find a ZIP Code can do that on their Apple mobile devices, anywhere, anytime.

In FY 2010, USPS Mobile attracted more than 2 million visitors each month, and consistently ranked in the top five most-popular free iTunes® apps.

USPS Mobile uses GPS to help on-the-go customers find a nearby Post Office, Automated Postal Center, collection location and their business hours. The app has maps and directions for customers traveling by car, walking or using public transit.

Using Track and Confirm, customers can easily see the progress of their mail. Status checks are only a click away. And users can save the addresses they ship to and from in their device’s address book.

In FY 2011, USPS plans to expand its free mobile applications to the Android operating system and include a postage rate calculator. Subsequent releases will target other Internet-enabled mobile devices.
