De­liv­er­ies for Mac

Track your pack­ages (some­times)

If you do a lot of on­line or­der­ing, keep­ing on top of what’s com­ing when can be a real pain in the neck – so we were ex­cited at the prospect of De­liv­er­ies, which can track all your pack­ages for you and even show you where they are. Wouldn’t it be great to have an app that could scan your email, pull out the or­der de­tails, let you know when your pur­chases would turn up, show where the truck is on a map and sync data with iOS too?

We’re sure it would be, but sadly De­liv­er­ies is flawed. The list of sup­ported UK ser­vices is fairly small – it’s a US app with support for US ser­vices – and you have to en­ter track­ing num­bers man­u­ally. We also en­coun­tered what ap­pears to be a bad bug: on one of two test Macs we couldn’t get the app to work prop­erly. The “show de­tails on­line” took us to the cor­rect or­der page, but the app couldn’t re­trieve any or­der data. When De­liv­er­ies works it’s quite clever. When it doesn’t, it’s use­less.

De­liv­er­ies looks nice, but we en­coun­tered prob­lems per­suad­ing the app to – ahem – de­liver.
