In this podcast, Thomas Domville demonstrates Parcel - Delivery Tracking, an iOS app that enables you to access tracking information for 300 delivery services, including UPS, USPS, FedEx, DHL, TNT, LaserShip, Aramex, OnTrac, China Post, Amazon Logistics and many other carriers.
You can use its widgets to see your upcoming deliveries and the share extension to add a new delivery directly from any other app.
Amazon integration in Parcel allows you to get your packages added automatically from your Amazon account. Once an order is shipped, it will appear in Parcel.
Some features, such as push notifications and tracking more than 3 deliveries are limited to premium subscribers. Current price for the premium subscription is $4.99 per year, and may vary from country to country.
Parcel. Doesn't get used much, but, still one of the best
I'm downloading this right now.
For me, I have Parcel on my Ipad. But, it doesn't get much use. Since I don't need to order online very much. But, the two times I did order stuff from Amazon, I loved this app! I ordered a copy of Drawing with your Perkins Brailler by Kim Charleson. Since it was braille, I wanted to keep a close eye on it. So, I installed Parcel, and entered the order info, tied my Amazon account to it, and was able to keep an eye on it! From when it was shipped, to when it was delivered!
I had to order some bump dots and labeling tape, for my Braille labeler that I'd need for future projects. Once again, it was braille-related items. So, again, was very concerned about safe delivery, not being out in the elements for too long (we live in the country) etc. So, once again, I used Parcel, and once again, it delivered!
While I don't use this app very much, I think it's one of the best apps. So, when I need to order from Amazon again, I'll use Parcel to track the package.
