App Reviews

  • Quit working

    By Wilfordv
    Foe a week it worked great, is notified me, correctly, of my mail and a package, that I wasn't expecting for three more days. Then on Saturday it showed no mail. I had become used to it being correct, so I didn't check the box. Again on Monday it showed no mail. I didn't check again, because I trusted it. Last night I decided to check if the local free advertiser paper was in. It showed junk mail except for flyers and that little paper. I opened the box, and, it was full. There were two days worth of mail in there. The app missed it all. There were three letters on bottom, then some flyers, then two more letters and some junk letters, then some more flyers and the advertiser . I know it was two days worth, because, our mailman always puts the good mail in first, then the junk. There were two layers of mail. Thus, two days of missed mail. I would say, that anything that has to be double checked is worthless. So I give it one star. Update: It showed I had 2 pieces of mail, but there was only one. It showed the same one twice. Now it indicates mail and the number, but no pic. It also does the same thing on the browser console on my laptop, so it is not a fluke.
  • It does what it’s supposed to...

    By Eej
    I’m actually not quite sure why this app has such a low rating and I’m not about to read everyone else’s long, drawn out reviews. The app does EXACTLY what it says it’s supposed to do. My only complaint is that the app doesn’t offer Push Notifications or Touch ID and/or Face ID support. Beyond that, at times the post office can get mail deliveries wrong. They’re not perfect. Sometimes the service doesn’t have an image available or it misses a piece entirely. That doesn’t bother me that much (since before Informed Delivery you didn’t know until it made it to your mailbox). The app is simply a viewer of whatever gets loaded to the informed delivery service itself. If the app doesn’t show you that you have mail coming, then it won’t show up on the website either. You can’t expect MORE from an app than what it’s supposed to deliver. Five stars from me.
  • What a crap app

    By Roadjockey
    What a lousy app whoever designed this should be fired !!! Signing up was like, signing up for the military, The security questions are a joke that’s all you could come up with it’s almost laughable. What’s disgraceful is a verified by identity twice via text message and when I pressed create account it’s sat on the loading screen for two hours and 21 minutes Then it tells me after all that time that my account couldn’t be created REALLY !! Then it said try again would need to try again stupid me puts all my information in again and stupid me puts all my information in again only to be stuck on the loading screen for one hour and six minutes only to tell me that my account was not created again !!! What a waste of time 3.5 hours of my time Went down the toilet for you USPS and the kick it doesn’t even work nothing like wasting time just to look at junk mail a complete failure but then again it’s the United States Postal Service I mean what should I really have expected !!!
  • Great app if dont excpect too much

    By The White Hammer 1
    Great for basic info from your post office, Informed Delivery! Find out whats is expected to be delivered in your mailbox for the current day, with a pic of each mail piece before it gets there. So if you wait for a payroll check every week or similar that keeps you waiting on the carrier...this is your simple answer!! Very useful n helpful for thr advance notice, by email, through app or by text i believe as well with opt out/in choices for your needs. Registration was easy for myself (done at 2 different addresses) after move n both no issues. Sometimes app itself crashes upon opening or in middle of session but not all!!! Just reopen it, its technology it happens... Oh ya and dont forget The USPS is also a government branch which as of late many government braches are suffering in their reputation. Although i must say where im at all my interactions with carriers etc are pleasant. The retail store post offices could use a bump in positivity...oh n the 800 # call in just is dire in all areas of their CSR. Lastly, as i stated this app is quite good for consistant heads up daily 4 basic info from your local post offices on the activity of the day for our convenience. Hope this helps clarify any other reviews if was needed. Thanks!!!
  • I can’t get help otherwise I might rate better.

    By SattireSam
    For years I’ve been trying to use this service. When I put my address in it tells me I’m not eligible to use it yet and to check back at the later date. However- if I put in my neighbors address it says “CONGRATS! Blah blah. Continue to register for an account?!” The neighbors house is close enough to me that I can stick my hand out of the window and touch their house. So there is no way that they’re actually eligible and I’m not. It’s not like it’s a utility or something. The mailman could probably stand on their porch and throw my mail to me it’s so close. But any time I’ve tried to engage some sort of customer service or support, it’s a huge failure. All they know is “we have no control over eligibility. You’ll have to wait until Your address is eligible!” IT IS ELIGIBLE. ITS AN ERROR. ugh! I’m disabled and use this service constantly with FedEx and UPS. I need this to work. I’ve been paying more to use FedEx and UPS when shopping or shipping for this exact reason.
  • Can’t even use without a 50 minute drive!

    By Isa 40:11
    I got this app installed and verified quite easily. But it won’t let me use it until it gets an identity verification. I get that and appreciate the security! So I give it a try. It gives me about 6 multiple choice questions about where I’ve lived and worked in the past. For each question, there are 4 actual choices and one “none of the above”. On EVERY QUESTION, there was nothing that identified where I’ve lived or worked. After choosing none of the above for every question I was told that they cannot verify my identify online. I either wait 72 hours and try again or do it in person. I live out in the boonies but I do make the 20 minute drive south to town a couple of times a week. So I click on that option and discover that the local post office (in a city of 10,000 people) isn’t one of my choices. The nearest one is a 50 minuets east of here!! This is crazy! At least give me a list of places I’ve actually lived to choose from!!
  • I have no problems at all

    By theycansmellfear
    I’m not sure why so many people have had problems with the app and given it a poor review (it’s quite unfortunate), but I have yet to have any problems with it really. Occasionally it loads a little bit slow, but that’s it. I like seeing my mail pieces scanned in so I don’t have to get up right away to check the mailbox to see what came, and I know ahead of time if something important is there. I wish a little more information was provided about packages (like how UPS gives package weight) because sometimes I don’t recognise the company it shipped from and would like some sort of clue as to which package I’m looking at. All in all it’s pretty much what I want out of this sort of app. :-)
  • Repeatedly logs me out and says my account doesn’t exist

    By Daisysock
    I have had this app randomly quit working and/or log me out at least 3 times. When I try logging back in through the app it says either my password is wrong(it isn’t because it was saved through iphone) or my account doesn’t exist(it does because I could log in from my computer) Even though I was able to log in from my computer, it said I wasn’t signed up for informed delivery(I was because I continued to get notification emails about mail that was coming) So I had to create a new account because when I tried to sign up it said I had an account after it said I didn’t have an informed delivery account(confused yet?!) This app has some SERIOUS bugs!!! I have 3 separate accounts to prove it. Also have a friend who has also randomly been kicked out of her informed delivery account twice so I know this issue isn’t just me. Nice app if it would ever work properly.
  • Worked great at first but then stopped

    By CChamberlain4444
    This app was fantastic at first but then all of a sudden it went downhill (I didn’t do an update to the app so it didn’t go downhill because of that). At first I could see what mail was coming each day as well as when packages were coming and who they were from. However all of the sudden for over a week now it says I have no mail coming but yet each day I’ve had mail in my box. The package notification went from telling me who packages were from to now only telling the postal company/branch name it was sent from initially. It has said packages were delivered but I’ve not received them so I go to file a tracking claim and I’m told I can’t because I don’t know the senders information or what the package was. Not sure how this app went from awesome to not being usable.
  • Great at daily mail information

    By inthesand
    If you want to know what's being delivered by USPS, this is a pretty great app. I haven't had the sign out problems that others mentioned. It stay signed in on both my iPad and my iPhone. I can't speak to the notification option. I did sign up for it and within a few days received an email with images of my daily mail. That was another email I could do without, so I turned it off. I found out I open it daily in the morning so I have an idea what is coming in the mail. For that function, it seems to work well. It also seems to show package delivery as well, though no image that I could see.
