50 Essential iOS Apps As online shopping becomes an integral part of our lives, one pain point remains: Keeping track of when all our precious packages will arrive.

That’s why online shoppers will love iOS package-tracking app Deliveries. It eliminates the irritation of keeping track of where packages are and when they’re going to be delivered. Forget about dealing with the nightmare of order-confirmation emails and online accounts. Deliveries consolidates info on all the packages in transit to your home. Then it lets you keep tabs via a single timeline in an easy-to-use app.

What the Deliveries app does

First and foremost, Deliveries is a package-tracking app. It aggregates all your tracking information from USPS, FedEx, UPS, DHL, Amazon, Apple and a lengthy list of others. On a single screen, you get a quick idea of what packages are on their way, where they are, and when to expect delivery.

Why Deliveries is great

What makes Deliveries an essential app for tracking packages is the easy-to-use interface and extension for adding packages to your list. From nearly any shipper’s website, using the share sheet action for adding a package will auto-populate the tracking number through the correct service.

That isn’t the only way to pull your packages into the Deliveries app. You can also add packages by simply copying a tracking number from an email, website, iMessage or wherever, and opening the app. A small banner will appear at the bottom, prompting to add the package. Additionally, packages can be entered by scanning a shipping label barcode, which also makes Deliveries useful for tracking outgoing packages.

Who Deliveries is for

Deliveries is the perfect app for Amazon addicts, or anyone expecting a package any day of the week. Small-business owners and average online shoppers alike will find it invaluable for keeping track of incoming orders or inventory.
