Always know where your packages are with Deliveries for Mac.
I have packages delivered almost daily. This can become troublesome when I have appointments to keep and don’t want to miss a delivery. Even though delivery services offer package tracking, it becomes difficult to keep track of what is where and when it will be dropped off. Developer Junecloud must have thought the same thing because they created Deliveries for Mac.
Deliveries for Mac is a dedicated notification center that makes users aware of when a package is being delivered to your location. Because of my line of work, I am very concerned about deliveries arriving when promised. A late or missed package can mean the difference between a happy client and a lost account. Some packages are incredibly expensive, too, and Deliveries for Mac gives me the peace of mind I need to know that I’ll be available to receive those packages in person.
To start using Deliveries, you simply tap the new package button and add a tracking number or website for Deliveries to pull information from. Then, you monitor the progress through either the desktop browser or the Notification window. You can also share your packages’ progress through Mail, Messages, or AirDrop. And, if you would like additional information, you can can open the tracking information on your computer’s Internet browser and visit the source’s website.
I used to get tracking information simply by visiting the websites of the carrier services and I’ve found that some of their tracking information is lacking. In fact, I had a package delivered just today that wasn’t supposed to arrive until Tuesday, October 28. That is the information I received from the carrier and Deliveries for Mac informed me to expect it to be delivered today.
In addition to the main browser window, Deliveries has a Notifications widget that provides a quick view of all the packages and their tracking numbers in one place. This allows me to store them for reference at a later time, plus I get quick notifications when delivery details change with my packages.
Deliveries for Mac supports dozens of services like UPS, FedEx, USPS, DHL, Canada Post, Royal Mail and many, many more. If you want to include a package from a service that isn’t supported, Deliveries can still help. You simply enter the website for the delivery service and Deliveries watches for package updates. It’s a much easier process then switching back and forth between websites or multiple tracking apps.
Junecloud has also developed an iOS version of Deliveries, which can be synced to the Mac version, but only through Junecloud Sync. This syncing service is also valuable when you switch between multiple browsers or computers.
One of the best parts about Deliveries is there is no monthly fee to use it. Other apps I’ve found have a monthly fee to track your packages and I can’t see paying anymore fees to anyone.
Deliveries also has an archive option so that you can store your shipment tracking information for reference, but not have to have it mingle with new, incoming shipments. Unfortunately, the only way I’ve found to access this stored information is to search for exact search terms.
If you are like me and have many shipment throughout the week or even throughout the day, I would recommend Deliveries for Mac to organize your incoming shipments. So far, it has been very accurate in terms of when packages are expected to arrive.
Deliveries for Mac retails for $4.99 and is available for download through the Mac App Store. For more information, visit junecloud.com.
