It’s an occupational hazard here at AppAdvice, but I receive my fair share of packages. And one of my favorite apps, Deliveries by Junecloud, has just made the move to version 7.0 with a huge slate of new features and improvements.
Ready for the latest Apple devices
The update is highlighted by support for Apple’s latest devices – the iPhone 6s/6s Plus and iPad Pro.
On the new iPhones, Junecloud has added extensive 3D Touch support. Selecting the app’s icon will allow you to add a delivery or quickly scan a package’s barcode. Inside the app, a light press will allow you to Peek at delivery information. A longer press will Pop everything into the fullscreen.
The app is now also fully optimized for the larger screen of the iPad Pro. Applicable iPad models can also take advantage of the Slide Over and Split View multitasking gestures in iOS 9.
Another new feature is the ability to view the full route of your package in addition to its current location. The app now also offers complete iCloud sync and the Siri support so you can receive a reminder about a specific delivery.
Here’s a list of other notable changes:
- Keyboard shortcuts: on an iPad with an external keyboard, hold down the command key to see a list of possible shortcuts.
– More ways to add deliveries: select text in another app (like Mail or Safari), then tap “Share…” to add to Deliveries. Don’t worry about selecting just the tracking number, it should find it if you select too much.
– Spotlight Search: on your home screen, pull down or swipe to the right to find deliveries by item name, shipping company, and more.
– Better clipboard detection: tap the + button and you’ll see suggestions based on your clipboard there. The URL detection has also been improved to recognize many new links.
– A fresh look: the new system font is now used throughout, and an adjusted detail view focuses more on the information you care about.
Deliveries is designed for the iPhone/iPod touch and all iPad models. It can be downloaded now on the App Store for a sale price of $1.99. It’s usually $4.99. The app is part of Apple’s current “Get Productive” sale that is offering great discounts on a number of productivity apps.
Apple Watch users can also take advantage of the app on the wearable device. Here’s an interactive preview from our sister site WatchAware.
