Pick of the Week

Deliveries: a package tracker: I’ve been using this app for several years now. It’s by far the best delivery tracking app for iOS and it extends on OS X with a native app. Recently, the app has been updated for the Apple Watch, so now you can track your iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus.

The price is a bit hefty, but the app includes iCloud syncing, push notifications, today widget, Apple Watch app, and the ability to manage multiple packages all at once.

Download Deliveries: a package tracker on the App Store for $4.99.
