Postal Service Goes Mobile
The United States Postal Service (USPS) announced some of the most popular functions currently available on usps.com are now available on cell phones and other mobile devices. The new features include Track & Confirm, Post Office locater, and the USPS's most popular application, ZIP Code Lookup.
“Our new mobile capability makes USPS services even more convenient for our customers,” said Robert Bernstock, president, mailing and shipping services.
Bernstock added, any mobile user with Web access will be able to log on to the Postal Service mobile site no matter where they are, without having to use a personal computer.
He concluded, “If they’re on the road, they’ll be able to use the Post Office locater function to find a Post Office that’s close to them. And they’ll also be able to track and confirm delivery of their mail or packages using their mobile phone.”
The Postal Service further announced it is also designing applications for smartphones and other mobile devices like the iPhone, iPod Touch and BlackBerries that take advantage of additional capabilities, such as GPS.
