ELIZABETH—The United States Postal Services has introduced a new app for BlackBerry smartphones.
“Building on the success of the Apple and Android smart phone applications, the Postal Service is expanding customer access with the introduction of a usps.com app for BlackBerry,” says Postmaster Dennis Allocco. The Elizabeth Postmaster explains that the BlackBerry app will allow users to track and confirm a package, locate a Post Office, and look up a ZIP Code more quickly and easily.
“More and more people, especially the younger generation, are accessing the Internet from mobile devices,” emphasizes Allocco. “The new BlackBerry app is the latest example of our continuing efforts to make it easier for customers to conduct postal business, when and where they want.”
BlackBerry comprises 23 percent of the smart phone market nationwide, according to Comscore, as reported in the August 10, 2011, issue of Forbes.
The BlackBerry app is the fourth mobile platform deployed by the Postal Service in two years. Customers have downloaded Postal Service apps more than 1.2 million times, and there are more than 4 million visits a month through all Postal Service mobile channels.
The new Postal Service BlackBerry application is compatible with a number of BlackBerry devices, including Bold 9000, Bold 9700, Curve 8900, Storm 9530, Storm 9550, and Tour 9630.
The app is free and available from the BlackBerry appworld or by going to usps.com/mobile
