Deliveries, the popular package tracking app, is losing many of its core features as shipping companies refuse to provide critical shipping information. In a blog post from earlier this week, app developer Mike Piontek provided details about its future.
Although things have changed over time, Delivery is no longer able to maintain the same services as before. Without the help of the shipping companies, the application simply cannot fulfill its role.
Shipping companies began to focus on their own applications. Last month, it was announced that FedEx was working on a feature for its app called “Crosstrack.” “Crosstrack” keeps tabs on expected deliveries of a variety of services.
It is likely that over time more services in deliveries will no longer show tracking information directly in the app. You won’t see the delivery date, map route, or any of the details, and you won’t receive notifications about status changes. You will need to use the “View Online” button to view your tracking information on the shipping company’s website.
Piontek goes on to tell customers that its team “will do [their] better to keep making it as useful as possible. The app costs $4.99 for an annual subscription and is available on the App Store.
