Parcel

The best package tracking app

Easy to use and quick to update, Parcel has everything you need to stay on top of shipments from USPS, FedEx, UPS, and more.

Parcel (for iOS and macOS) has a clean design that makes it simple to use, and it works with the United States Postal Service as well as all major delivery companies. In our tests, adding new package tracking numbers to the list in Parcel required the fewest taps among all the apps we tried, and Parcel can even add the numbers automatically if you forward your shipping-confirmation emails to a unique email address. Parcel is quicker than other apps to notify you when there’s a status change such as a pickup, delivery, or delay. And because your data syncs across most Apple devices, you can check your packages’ status on your Mac or iPad, too.

Runner-up

Deliveries

Deliveries

A more colorful package tracker that’s almost as great

Deliveries has a slightly prettier design and features similar to those of our top pick, but it’s a little slower in adding new packages and notifying you of status changes.

Although we prefer Parcel, Deliveries (for iOS and macOS) is a great alternative. It works in pretty much the same way but looks a little better since it lists packages from different carriers in different colors—purple for FedEx, brown for UPS, and so on—making it easier for you to tell them apart. Deliveries also gives you the option of automatically adding delivery dates to your calendar. But there’s a (small) extra step to adding new shipments, notifications tend to arrive a little slower than they do with Parcel, and you can’t share tracking information with someone else unless they also have the app.
