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.
