    Does anyone know of a good package tracking application for the Palm? I'd like it to handle the four major US carriers (FedEx, UPS, DHL, USPS), but at the moment I'm just obssessing over a FedEx shipment.

    (Something along the lines of how Directory Assistance handles phone book lookups - sure, I could use a web site, but DA makes everything that much faster and streamlined.)

    If that fails, does anyone know of a *really* lightweight web site to do the same? Preferably one that allows bookmarking the tracking results page (a lot of them use session keys that time out, or embed your tracking number in a post request, etc).

    Thanks, all!

    You could try the Genius! application from Hobbyist Software (makers of Butler), www.hobbyistsoftware.com/. It's a replacement app for the builtin Find function and has plugins for most shipping companies.

    Try going through google mobile - they have some optimization routines that make sites more phone friendly.

    For at least fedex and ups, you can just use their mobile sites directly...

    UPS
    FedEx

    If you simply type in the tracking number into google, you get tracking info.
    Palm V-->Visor Deluxe-->Visor Prism-->Visorphone-->Treo 180-->Treo 600-->Treo 650 on Sprint-->Treo 700p-->Centro-->Diamond-->Pre-->HTC EVO 4g???!

    Sadly, Genius doesn't save tracking numbers, and the mobile versions of the sites don't present the same info about where the package is en route as the full web page. I'll try using Google Mobile, and thanks for the Google package tracking tip.

    This seems like a good opportunity for someone to write a nice, simple app for package tracking - I know Directory Assistance is probably my most used internet app.

    The problem with this is that all it does it provide you a link directly to the deliverer's site... which will be a full web site.

    http://www.bloglines.com has a mobile version, and it has package tracking integrated into it.

    These two seem to work pretty well:

    UPS -- http://mobile.ups.com
    FedEx -- http://mobile.fedex.com
