Sorry for the bad pun in the title. We tried to avoid it as best as possible. UPS has announced the release of their new Android application today which tracks packages and helps find the nearest location. Further, users can calculate shipping rates, time-in-transit, and create shipping labels. If you’re a frequent eBay or Craigslist type of person, you’d probably find quite a bit of help in a tool like this.
It’s not necessary to log in to track packages, however once you do, there are additional options available. For instance, you can rename the tracking number to something like “John Elway rookie card“. You can find the free application in the Android Market today or by scanning/clicking the barcode to the right!
