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 to show your closest options on a map, along with their Regular Hours, Special Hours and Last Collection Times, and provides 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). 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®, 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 free next-day pickup and have your Letter Carrier pick up Priority Mail®, Priority Mail Express®, Global Express Guaranteed®, or Merchandise Return Services 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.
Scan the barcode on shipping labels with your phone’s camera (not available on iPad 1 and iPod Touch models without rear-facing cameras). The app recognizes the shipment and stores the label number, so you can stay on top of its status.
IMPORTANT: The barcode-scanning function is not available on these devices: iPad 1 and iPod Touch models without rear-facing cameras.

Not perfect, but fresh install solves glitches from update
I had been having trouble with the updated app (missing tracking history, custom names not being saved, etc.). However, after deleting the updated app and reinstalling, it works just fine. I've been able to add back all my previously tracked items, and custom names are not being deleted. In addition, delete items stay gone. Although reinstalling got rid of the problems I was having, it was a pain to have to re-add my deleted history. I can imagine this will be especially annoying for those whose history is extensive or who don't have easy access to their tracking numbers. The updated app appears to be an improvement over the previous version, but I don't use any features other than tracking, so I don't know if/how well they work.
I have used this app for many years and loved being able to track my packages, compute rates, check zip codes, hold my mail, order supplies, etc. With the new update, the app is now USELESS!!!!! I send and receive a LARGE NUMBER OF PACKAGES and like to stay on top of what's being delivered as well as track the items I've sent. I also loved being able to create a name for the packages, rather than having to keep a separate report for tracking numbers and item name. I had several entries stored in the app and all of a sudden I have 1 package in my tracking results. The rest vanished and I'm not able to enter new numbers or track any other packages... The app simply won't take the tracking numbers NO MATTER WHAT I DO!!!!! After years of using the app, I DELETED IT along with ALL OF MY STORED INFORMATION!!!!! Good Riddance!!!!! Now looking for an app that can take care of my tracking woes!!! Thanks USPS!!!!! :(
Worst update in history
They took away one's ability to name your tracking item if the number has yet show up in the system, so you will end up with a bunch of numbers and have no clue what they are. Give us back the ability to assign a name to a yet to be recognized number or this part of the app is worthless. Also, an update or two ago, they took away the ability to shop for priority mail supplies, which I use almost exclusively for my two online retail businesses. That was so convenient. WHY?! The USPS app is broken. Why did you go from an app that was good to one that is terrible? In future updates, give us the ability to scan packages to order a pickup, otherwise the corresponding tracking number is useless. I often will order my pick up on my phone late at night, then still have to print out a scan form from my computer.
