Advisory panel looks for 'moonshot' in Commerce data
April 24, 2015
The inaugural meeting of the Commerce Data Advisory Council discussed how the Commerce Department can take their troves of data to the next level for the American public.
David Stegon was a staff reporter for FedScoop and StateScoop from 2011-2014.
The U.S. Postal Service launched a new iPhone app that lets users scan barcodes on shipping labels to track packages and other mail with their iPhones or iPads.
The app stores the label numbers so users can then follow the packages progress.
"Whenever and wherever they are, customers can check the delivery status of their shipments by simply scanning the barcodes on their shipping label receipts," said USPS Channel Access Vice President Kelly Sigmon. "Millions of Americans are making mobile devices a part of their daily lives, and we're providing solutions that meet their needs."
The free app is now available at the iTunes store.
