    "*enters password* - WRONG. *resets password* NEW PASSWORD CAN'T BE YOUR OLD PASSWORD... AAARRGGGHHH I've lived through this enough times to want to die, so I finally got tired and tried different password managers. I ended up staying with 1password. It's really easy to use, and has a very reasonable price. I'll never have to remember a bazillion passwords again!!!! FREEDOOOOM!!!!"

      "It is a fine idea but the issue is, you still need tracking information or info that requires having used the app PRIOR to mailing the package. Also USPS is different than UPS."

      "This site is so frustrating. I sent my mom a package which is about a week late. I didn't set up a tracking number or send it priority mail, and that was my first mistake. Anyways, there suppose to be an option to do a tracer on it, so I have to sign up to the site. I tried to sign up, but it said I have an account. I must have forgot that I had one and of course do not know my password. So I attempted to recover password, but it says that they only want you to make a new account, for security reasons. So I tried to make the new account, but it told me I already had an account! So, I can't access my old account, I can't make a new account because I already have an account, and I can't track my package that I sent my mom three weeks ago."

      "I wanted to track a US mail package, but ended up at the UPS tracking site. Unfortunately, there's no power on earth that will make UPS tracking useful for finding out what happened to a US mail package, because the two mail services are totally different companies. I'm afraid my package will be lost forever."

      "We all want to know where are packages are, and we want to know right now. UPS offers the solution on their website. If you do not have a tracking number you can now assign your package a custom reference number and use that. You can also get updated emails if you do not want to keep track yourself."

This tool looks very easy to use for anything related to FedEx shipments, but it doesn't have what I'm looking for for tracking US mail easily. Use this for FedEx packages, but it doesn't help with US mail and therefore I don't recommend it."

It allows you to start tracking right from the confirmation email from Amazon. It also tracks hundreds of delivery options all in one app. It's a big timesaver."
