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