Useful & Fast
This free app shows you very quickly post offices and mailboxes around your location, or other locations that you enter. I used it to find a post office around my work place so I could mail a package after lunch. Because it shows you instantly which locations are open (green dots) and which are closed (red dots), I can see in a glance which ones are still open when I get off work, by using the slider at the top of the page to change the current time (the dots turn red and green in real time when you use the slider). Finally, for each dot I was able to click and go to the web page where the hours were extracted from, to confirm the hours and the address, so I wouldn't waste a trip. These feature should come in handy when I mail my Christmas gifts. Overall, a very timely and useful application.
Great for finding a nearby post office.
I like this post office app since it's the only one with hours. I had to mail a package yesterday and was running a little late. My wife downloaded this app and found a post office that was just a few blocks from where we were eating. It saved us from rushing back to the one near our house before it closed. I only needed a post office, but we passed by several mailboxes that were shown too. Very nice free app.
On my walk home from work, I literaly leaned on a mailbox, opened the app, and searched. It pinpointed my location, but told me the nearest mailbox was 1.4 miles away. Even now, as I sit in my living room, and stare out my window at a mailbox, it is telling me the closest one is .8 mile away. It is also telling me the closest post office is .3 mile. This is not accurate, as the post office it is telling me about is actually just over 1.7 miles away, and there are two post offices within .7 mile that it is not locating.
