What's New in Version 5.6
- Bug Fixes
Not as I Thought
This app isn't how I thought it would be. The interface is weak and boring with multiple selections, which all prompt you to visit the site and login. I thought you'd be able to do everything via the app which you can't. Basically the app is a source to direct you back to the site. Don't see much need in the app because you could just bookmark the USPS site. I'd suggest a revamp of the app allowing users to get everything you can get via the site on the app. You can only view tracking for packages you enter an/or scan whereas the site has all your USPS packages available to view without having to do anything. There's also a lack of notification. I'm not able to set up notifications through my settings. Again what's the point of the app?
Slow as Molasses
Hands down this is the slowest app I own....I wish I didn't have to use it, but I do. You have to tap the screen every once in a while to keep the phone active while you wait for it to update every time. Also, they sort the list newest to oldest for delivered item (which is fine) but then they put any new pending items at the bottom of the list (i.e. right next to the oldest item)....I am guessing that not many people will find it there (unless they only have a few packages) since it is so counterintuitive. The rows are also too big, but now I am just being picky....the BIG issue is the speed. I tried deleting all of my old packages, but it didn't help so don't waste your time. I had much higher hopes for our USPS.
Full of bugs, needs to be updated
This app wasn't too bad when it was released, but it hasn't been updated in a long time, and now it's buggy. The bugs are too numerous to name, the app barely works.
Another thing, it only had a limited amount of history that it'll hold, and it's a pain to remove older items. They should either offer automatic deleting of oldest item, or a way to easily select multiple items for deletion. They should also increase the total items you can save too.
So overall, it wasn't bad, but needs to be updated. However, I'm wondering if they ever will.
