• Canada Post Shows BlackBerry 10 Some App Love In Time For The Holidays

    When BlackBerry released BlackBerry 10 last January, I was slightly disappointed to see a lack of a Canada Post app available from launch. Well, almost 10 months later we are now finally seeing not only a Canada Post app, but one that is natively built for BB10!

    The app comes with a simple, yet straightforward UI that is easy to navigate and get your task done with ease!

    Some of the features included in Canada Post For BlackBerry 10:

    Track a Package: Check the delivery status of your items. Simply tap in your tracking number or use our scanner to scan the barcode from a delivery slip / delivery notice card or your retail receipt! You can choose to name your item (e.g. My books)—making it easier to monitor multiple deliveries—and keep a history of all your tracked items in a self-managed list.
    Find a Rate: Find out what it costs to send anything anywhere in the world!

    Find a Postal Code: Look up a postal code to make sure your cards and packages are addressed correctly, even for rural and PO Box addresses. Save postal codes to your address book for easy retrieval.

    Find a Post Office: Locate a Post Office near you, or anywhere in Canada.

    Picture Postage™ – Stamps: Create personalized stamps for your letters and invitations. Get started by taking a picture or access any photos that you have stored on your camera roll!

    Picture Postage™ – Postcards and Greeting Cards: Turn your photos into printed postcards—with delivery anywhere in the world for just $2.45 for a postcard or $2.95 for a greeting card! Take a photo or select one from your camera roll, choose the recipient(s) from your contacts list and write your personal message. We'll print, stamp and mail the postcard to each person on your list!
    Sadly, Epost (Canada Post's online mail and bill presentment and payment service) is missing from this app, but you can always use that service via their mobile-friendly site.
