One Million Downloads: Milestone for USPS iPhone App

WASHINGTON — Look up a ZIP Code. Locate nearby postal locations. Find shipping prices. Track packages. Get delivery information. The Postal Service is proud to announce that more than one million iPhone, iPod touch and iPad customers have downloaded the U.S. Postal Service app.

“We’re expanding access to our products and services,” said Postmaster General Patrick R. Donahoe. “We know simpler is better — a million mobile customers can’t be wrong.”

Since the application was launched in December 2009, it has consistently been one of the top 10 free business apps in the App Store.

The app gives customers instant, on-the-go access to the most popular tools on usps.com and it offers browser-friendly access, too. The USPS App is available for free from the App Store on the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad or at www.itunes.com/appstore. For more information, go to usps.com/mobile/info.htm.
