Parcel Tracker goes Mango with pinnable tracking

Parcel Tracker v4

Ti's the season to be shopping and for a lot of us, shopping online is the preferred method for our consumer indulgence. That involves shipping and package tracking and what better way to keep abreast of all of that than your phone? Parcel Tracker (see review) has been around for quite some time and is considered to be the best package tracker out there. Now with version 4.0, the app has gone Mango and boy is kewl.

Besides the fact that it loads and scrolls more quickly now and you get fast-app switching, you can now also pin your individual packages right to your Start screen for 1-click access to that package's whereabouts. And it's sharp looking too with the shipper's corporate icon on one side, the package details on the other. We like. A lot.

That's on top of the existing live tile, which shows number of update notifications and push-toast notifications when the package details have been updated. Throw in a barcode scanner and what's not to love about this app?

Parcel Tracker goes for $1.49 in the Marketplace with a free trial and gets our seal of approval.

Parcel Tracker goes Mango with pinnable tracking


freakin' great app, than you so much for reviewing it! it never crossed my mind to look for an app like this & with the amount of online ordering I do year round I am suprised I didnt think of it. I am one of those people that check the tracking status constantly too! awesome!

same here, didnt even think such a thing existed. Now have it tracking my HTC Titan which is apparently in Singapore and will be with me on Monday. best fo all, instead of constantly checking it sends a toast when the status changes (FedEx)

Dan great timing. Tracked my parcel all weekend. Just got the bing bong your parcel has a status update. Your parcel is now on the FedEx truck for delivery - yay my Titan is coming today! farewell Mozart you have served me well but its time for more power!

The quality control of Windows Phone UI is horrible. 
Please fix the pixel error where the number in the notification is placed with 9 pixels on the right side, and 7 on the left. Or : redesign the notification tile all together. 
There are some parts of the OS that is beautifully designed, but the ciruclar shit is everywhere, and it's a disaster. Circles are very difficult to do on a small pixel screen.
Make it plain and simple, use a red bar, or some other type of icon like a speaking bubble (taken from the communication history log), something that is not a faulty ciruclar bubble. 

this is the third app i am buying through WPC due to your recomendations. just wanted to say thanks. its a season to be
