This is one of the very rare times that I’m willing to write a review, but it’s because I’m very impressed by the simplicity of Arrive that I just need to share my thoughts with anyone who haven’t used the service before. (Sorry if it’s a little lengthy) I do a lot of online shopping and Arrive has helped me save a lot of time as well as taking the stress of constantly monitoring deliveries statuses from different carriers away. I have an account with pretty much all of US’s major logistics carriers(FedEx, UPS, USPS, DHL, Royal Mail + some international delivery services) so I can always be updated of my shipments, and honestly it’s a hassle and it can get hectic. But ever since I started using Arrive(which was suggested to me by an ad), all the purchases I’ve made and their current status are all organized into one easy to use app! As long as you have a gmail account that you use to make your purchases, Arrive will automatically sync the information into your account. And if you have a lot of completed deliveries piled up in your “main folder”, they have an archive that you can store them in for future reviews. And if you don’t use gmail, you can always add your own tracking information and you’ll be notified when your items are delivered, it’s very simple and easy to use so I highly recommend everyone to try it out!
I’ve come to love this app. I can track lots of packages for free (unlike with the Parcel app), I haven’t seen any ads yet (again, unlike the Parcel app), and the design is very nice to look at. I like the shades of blue. The map aspect of tracking works better here than in other apps. I had issues with another app not plotting points on the map in China. This one does a better job and depending on which carrier you choose (e.g. you could track via USPS or China Post EMS for some packages), it may show you either Chinese or English text. A few suggestions for improvement are: make deliveries editable so you can change the carrier if you make a mistake (right now, I think you’d have to create another listing instead), improve the updates (refreshing the statuses doesn’t always do anything, I’ve had packages arrive but not show that even after refreshing), please add the SpeedPAK carrier (I’ve had several packages sent through this carrier when ordering from eBay), and make a view mode where there are no maps, so that you just see package locations (you’d see more at once that way). Overall, I’m very happy. I’m also grateful for being able to track so many packages without seeing ads (which are a pain and do show on other free apps). Thank you and keep up the great work! 😊
If you do any online shopping, whether it’s a little or a lot, nothing is more frustrating having to scroll through and find each email, write down each tracking number, and then individually enter each one. With ‘Arrive’ all you do is sign up with your gmail account that you use for all your online shopping, and it automatically updates and adds each order to the app. Only thing I hope the app adds with some more time, is the ability to use any email provider you prefer. I know a lot of people that would then be able to download and use this app as well, if it accepted all/any email provider. Other than that, I cannot imagine not having this app on my phone. Now I don’t have to write the tracking down, and go into the coordinating shipper app. They all auto sync right to the app because of the email address I use. It’s so easy and super organized! I definitely recommend downloading this app even if you don’t do a lot of online shopping. It just gives you one less thing to worry about. Oh and the best part is that it attaches the order/receipt to it, so if there was a problem that occurred, you would be able to get all the information right within ‘Arrive’. I think this app is going to be especially helpful during the holiday season.
I was a dedicated Slice user for years, but switched to Arrive when the former introduced a pay scale. Arrive isn’t quite as visually appealing, but it’s also not an app that you will spend a lot of time looking at. Once you’ve authorized the appropriate email accounts, it does a very good job of scouting messages for tracking numbers and adding them automatically. (If it misses a few, they’re typically linked via a shipping notification email and the tracking number isn’t explicitly listed. Can only expect so much.) I like that I can rename my shipments to a more descriptive/meaningful title. Notifications are timely, which allows me to keep an eye out for deliveries and not worry someone may grab it before I get the chance. On rare occasion, the app will show a delivery as late and I will have to manually mark it as delivered; I don’t think it’s due to running low power mode as I almost always do this (i.e. I receive notifications in this mode, also). It is uncommon enough to not be personally bothersome. If I were to suggest any change, it would be helpful to directly link to the official carrier tracking page after clicking on the tracking number from shipment detail info. Nonetheless, a really useful app (free or not), and a steal for free.
This is a nice app for merchants that don’t provide their own delivery updates. However, I’ve found that merchants that DO provide delivery updates, they are always more accurate than this app. Notification of delivery from the Arrive app will come anywhere from 10-30 minutes after the actual delivery has taken place. I love this app for telling me around when my mail has been delivered, especially when I’m not at home. As far as tracking you can track your packages with the carriers generally just as easily...I don’t know which tracking number goes with which item...so I have to look back and forth at the different merchant sites anyway, when using this app. Sometimes there’s a corresponding picture of the product, which is great! But not always. More information would be useful, such as, the merchant’s name, product name, even if the picture isn’t available. What I find strange is when I first downloaded the app it WAS quicker than the merchant’s updates...so I don’t know what happened...more users loading the system? So I guess it depends on what you are using it for. It works for my purposes and I would recommend it if you don’t need to know immediately when something is delivered.
