It used to be on the main page but they moved it semi-recently into that order page

I think maybe I got freaked out when I first installed it and it wanted access to my gmail. Definitely going to use this to track orders. I used to use another package tracking app (forget the name) but it got unreliable

What's more annoying, me posting an opinion or having 18 people quote me doing nothing but bitching and moaning? Nobody is forced to read or respond to anything I post.
You’re like a petulant child. This is an Apple thread where we like and constantly buy and discuss Apple shit. We don’t care about your opinions. Read the room. Get a fucking clue. You’re not wanted here.

I just wish you could manually add tracking numbers... I just can't bring myself to give it access to any of my accounts :(
For FedEx, UPS and USPS just sign up for the individual ones

FedEx is Delivery manager (free)
UPS is MyChoice (free and premium available)
USPS is Informed Delivery

All of these track based on your name/address (and you can add family in the household too) so you don't have to give them access to your accounts.

Only things you won't get tracked is Amazon deliveries (TBA tracking) but those you should be getting notified from Amazon directly.

Yeah I do use the UPS app. It's actually fairly good at automatically linking up packages. I'm trying to track something I ordered through AliExpress right now and I have NO clue what the shipping company actually is lol

Shop will suggest the correct carrier based on the tracking number. Pretty slick.
