During the COVID-19 pandemic, many of us are depending even more on online shopping to for everyday items. And with that comes even more package deliveries, making it sometimes hard to keep track of what is coming and when.
One of the best package tracking apps available, Deliveries, has just received an update with some nice new features.
The app features a new look and now has a Dark mode. It’s also easier to add new shipments with improved suggestions and an option to bring in more than one shipment from popular sites.
You can also drag a message from mail into the app to automatically find tracking numbers.
With the Apple Watch app, you can now see upcoming deliveries on the Siri watch face.
Deliveries is designed for the iPhone and all iPad models. It’s available to download now on the App Store for free. There is also a Mac version.
With the update, developer Junecloud is moving from a one-time purchase to a subscription model. The developer explained more about change in a blog post:
We have so many wonderful customers, but most people have never tried Deliveries. We know a big part of that has always been the upfront cost: the current price of $4.99 for the iOS app and $4.99 for the Mac app is a lot to ask before you’ve even had a chance to figure out if it does what you want it to do. Subscriptions will make it possible to download the app on all your devices and try it for a month, or even a full year, for less than it would have cost to buy both versions. If you cancel your subscription, you’ll still be able to finish tracking any packages you previously added, and look up your past shipments if you need to.
If you previously purchased Deliveries, you can continue using most features without a subscription. You’ll be able to add new Deliveries and sync with iCloud. You will need a subscription to sync with Junecloud, and we may add other features in the future that require a subscription. However, you’ll also receive a complimentary subscription based on your purchase date—so you’ll have anywhere from 3 months to 18 months to enjoy all the features of the app before you need to even consider paying for a subscription.
The subscription is $4.99 per year or $0.99 per month.
