Access popular USPS.com® tools on the go with the USPS Mobile® app. Find a Post Office™ or an Approved Postal Provider™, look up a ZIP Code™, calculate shipping prices (limitations apply), schedule pickups, order supplies, scan labels and coupons (available on certain devices), hold your mail, and use the USPS Tracking™ tool anywhere you go.
WHAT CAN IT DO?
Find USPS® Locations when you need to get to a Post Office™, Self-Service Kiosk (APC®) or collection box with an easy-to-filter locator. The USPS Mobile app uses your device’s GPS and map features to show your closest options, along with their Regular Hours, Special Hours and Last Collection Times, and provide mapped results with driving, walking, or transit directions.
Look up a ZIP Code™ for any U.S. address.
Calculate a Price to determine how much postage you will need when you ship a letter, card, large envelope, or package (limitations apply). Now you can choose retail or online pricing, add any extra services you need, and view the total, too.
Use the USPS Tracking™ tool to check the status of shipments sent using Priority Mail Express™, Certified Mail®, and certain other delivery services. You can give your shipment a nickname and save it in the app to easily keep tabs on your items.
Schedule a next-day pickup and have your Letter Carrier pick up Priority Mail®, Priority Mail Express™, Global Express Guaranteed®, or Merchandise Returns shipments from your home or office during regular mail delivery.
Request Hold Mail Service while you’re away, and we’ll keep your mail at your local Post Office™ until you return.
Order USPS® boxes and envelopes and have them delivered right to your door.
Scan the barcode on shipping labels with your phone’s camera (not available on iPad 1 and iPod Touch 3rd generation). The app recognizes the shipment and stores the label number, so you can stay on top of its status.
You can also save coupons and keep them organized in your phone to redeem at merchants who accept digital coupons. Please check the merchant’s coupon redemption policy, as some merchants may require a physical coupon at the time of purchase.
IMPORTANT: The barcode scanning function is not available on these devices: iPad 1 and iPod Touch 3rd generation.

-Corrected defect in “Get Supplies” section that prohibited users from placing orders.
Garbage In, Garbage Out
This app functions beautifully. Unfortunately, the location data is largely useless unless you're in a big city. Blue Box locations in rural and suburban locations are wholly innacurate. Post Office locations are based on street address instead of GPS location, so if the underlying address location is wrong, the pin may be several miles from the actual post office. I find myself in unfamiliar areas searching for a blue box, only to find that the location either doesn't exist, is not at the pinned location, or is inside a private business with armed guards. As with most geo-locating apps, the UI is wonderful but care was not taken to ensure that the data behind the app is accurate. Fix the location data to use GPS coordinates instead of an address search, and add a description to the search results - something like "box is located in lobby" or "box is left of the pharmacy entrance" - and this could easily be a 5 star app.
Gotta give it to usps, this app is amazing! 📫📫📫
I am an ebay seller so I have a lot of tracking numbers that i have to keep updated with and this app updates them all for me! I can give my tracking numbers nicknames so that I can know which package is which!
Also it is very hard for me to find transportation and with this app, i can schedule pick-ups right in front of my house! It is great!! The postman comes the very next business day and knocks on my front door! Very easy to do!
I can order boxes and shipping supplies very easy and fast in the palm of my hand! I love it!! I rarely give reviews but this app well deserves it! Please download! 👍
Helpful, but lacks info
This app is helpful finding the nearest Post Office, blue mail box, checking postal rates, etc., but it does not show holidays when the Post Office is closed, which would be useful, since the P.O. enjoys more "holidays" then any other business. And it doesn't allow you to quickly find the nearest location open on Saturday (you must check the hours for each individual location, one at a time). It just needs some more input from real people so that it can improve its usefulness.
