Amazon does a decent job of providing tools and alerts so customers can track their packages en route, but Amazon is not the only company where I spend too much money. That means I need an app– Mac and iPhone and iPad– that can track which packages are coming and when they’re due to arrive. Here it is. For Mac, iPhone, iPad, and Watch.
Delivering Delivery Times
For Mac users, the typical way to track a package on its way to your doorstep is to login to the tracking service, enter the tracking number, click the tracking button. Or, in the alternative, check the site’s email for a tracking number, enter that into the shipping site, and, well, you get the idea. Every package is different, and each requires an individual effort.
Wouldn’t it be great to have a single app that does the tracking? That’s Deliveries. It’s a Mac app that has an iPhone, iPad, and Watch counterpart, and package tracking and delivery details can be shared between Mac, iPhone, and iPad via the cloud.
If there’s a better delivery tracking app for Apple customers I haven’t seen it. Deliveries tracks details from most of the larger transports, including UPS, USPS, FedEx, DHL in the U.S. of A. and elsewhere, but also most of Europe and parts of Asia.
How’s this for tracking a package?
That’s right. View your delivery’s progress step-by-step, location-by-location, and with a map, too. Progress of each package can be displayed on Notification Center– Mac, iPhone, iPad, Watch– so you won’t even need to use the app to check delivery status.
All Deliveries needs to know is the tracking number and the delivery service (and sometimes it can figure out the details just from the number). All the tracking is done behind the scenes in the background and you get a notification when something has changed, usually as the package gets closer to your door.
If there’s a package tracking app better than Deliveries I haven’t found it yet. That’s why it gets mostly five star reviews on the Mac App Store. Unfortunately, there’s no try-before-you-buy option for Mac users, but the price tag is nominal.
And it works on Watch. What’s not to like?
