With this app installed on your device, you can nickname and track shipments, find service stations, generate shipping labels, and estimate the delivery times and shipment costs. You can also sign-up for the UPS My Choice easily for free. The app sends delivery alerts straight to your tablet or smartphone, allowing you to organize your schedule and make any changes to the destination of your shipment regardless of your location.
Even without logging in, you can still enjoy several features that come with the app for iOS and Google Android gadgets. For instance, it lets you track freight shipments and packages and save up to five tracking numbers to your tracking list. Additionally, you can filter the UPS service locations and receive quotes on transit times and shipment costs.
Notably, the tool comes as an Android and iOS app. The OS version required for the former varies with the device, while the latter works with iOS 9.0 and is compatible with the iPod touch, iPhone, and iPad.
Ease of Use
The iOS and Google Android app is relatively convenient and easy to use right from the sign-in stage where you have the option of skipping and getting down to package tracking. It also has no lags and has never crashed on my device.
The latest version can sync contacts on my device within the Manage My Delivery feature. Furthermore, the estimated date of delivery has also been added to the various pages available. Finally, the language of ‘No Internet Connection’ has been fixed alongside several other bugs.
The design of this app for all Android devices and iOS gadgets is simple and easy to grasp. Additionally, it has a modern interface with the familiar gold and brown UPS branding. It is also quite straightforward, and I was able to create shipping labels like a pro within minutes. Notably, the recent update comes with an improved appearance that allows easier navigation.
This app is free to install and has no in-app purchases.

UPS has done an excellent job at offering an Android and iOS app for their services. Apart from its simple and easy to learn interface, it also comes with robust functionality. However, if you compare it to the PC version, you’ll notice that it lacks several essential features such as the zip codes, and My Choice services. With these two elements incorporated in the leading app, it will come out even better. I like how I handle my shipping with this app, and I recommend the app to UPS members.
