As you might imagine I do a lot of shopping online and therefore receive a lot of packages. In most cases they are shipped via FedEx, UPS or USPS. Also in most cases I'll get an email with the tracking number. Prior to iPhone OS 3.0 I was not really interested in Package Tracking apps because I didn't want to have to enter long tracking numbers manually. Now that the iPhone has Copy and Paste I went in search of a good package tracking app. When I get an email with a tracking number I can simply copy it right out of the email and paste it in the Delivery Status app.
Delivery Status exceeded my expectations!
I was already using the FedEx mobile app. However, I wanted something that would track UPS shipments too. When I found Delivery Status, I was blown away. This is definitely one of if not the best package trackers out there for the iPhone. You can track packages from over 40 shipping companies/vendors!
This is one of those apps that you should have, but hope you never have to use. Having been in a few auto accidents in the past myself, I know how much of a daze you can be in even if you're physically OK. If the police come, you're all set as they'll make a report. However, if it's a minor fender bender, then you may be on your own to collect all the details for your insurance claim.
That's where iWrecked comes in
This app aims to be the data collection point for all the relative information regarding your accident. It prompts you to enter the information that you may not be thinking about at the moment. Since your iPhone is also a camera, you can even insert the pictures you take. Also don't forget to take pictures of the road conditions and surrounding area. There is an Emergency Call area to call 911, towing in the area you're in via Google Maps and for a Taxi.
Once you complete the accident report you can preview it and then send it via email in PDF format.
When Apple introduced the iPhone OS 3.0 update they also updated MobileMe to include the new Find My iPhone feature. One of the other things that wasn't widely publicized was that they also introduced a new iPhone App to allow you to access your MobileMe iDisk from your iPhone or iPod touch running the 3.0 update. Well Apple delivered the app this week as a free download from the App Store.
How does it work?
The App itself is very basic in operation and easy to use. Once you launch it you enter your MobileMe username and password. After that you're presented with 4 tabs: IDisk, Recents Shared Files and Public Folders.
The iDisk tab will show you all of your folders on your iDisk and let view any document that is viewable on your iPhone/iPod touch such as PDFs, MS Office docs (.DOC, .XLS. PPT), images such as .JPG files and iWork documents such as Pages, Keynote and Numbers.
Yes, it does work in Landscape mode too.
