Postal Service Goes Mobile

According to a USPS news release, "Customer convenience and product access are the focus of expanding the most popular online services onto web-enabled mobile devices."

The release goes on to say, "Some of the most popular functions currently available on are now available on cell phones and other mobile devices. The new features include Track & Confirm, Post Office locator, and the most popular application, ZIP Code lookup."

Robert Bernstock, president, Mailing and Shipping Services is quoted as saying, “Any mobile user with web access will be able to log on to the Postal Service mobile site no matter where they are, without having to use a personal computer."

The Postal Service is also designing applications for “smartphones” and other mobile devices like the Apple iPhone, BlackBerry and iPod Touch which take advantage of additional capabilities, such as GPS.
