An Post launches iPhone and iPad app

3 Nov 2010

An Post has just launched an app to bring post and post offices to iPhones, iPads and iPod touches.

The An Post Mobile App lets users track and trace letters or parcels, which shows the progress of any bar-coded mail item, from acceptance to delivery.

The app also lets users find the nearest post office with built-in Google mapping services, providing GPS and a built-in compass.

Users can calculate postage rates on packages they’ve sent, as well, and the app lets users access all of An Post’s online services from their mobile device.

It’s available on the App Store now. An Post has said it will be updated regularly with new services and features.
