Setting up shipments to be tracked was simple as could be. I copied the tracking number from the confirmation email, selected the service from the app, hit paste and then saved it. It pulled all the tracking data from&nbsp;FedEx, UPS, and the USPS without a hitch. (I just happen to have things coming from each of those right now.) It even has Google maps integration so you can see where your package is currently hiding. Parcels even has the option to check for updates in the background and provide you with system notifications about package status changes. I don't order a lot of stuff online but I can see this being a wonderful tools for those chronic online shoppers.</p>

I've been using this handy little app for some time now and must say it's irreplacible.
