We’ve made some enhancements to our mobile app interface to help service providers and shippers use uShip to book and track shipments more easily on mobile devices. It’s all the same functionality – so you won’t miss a beat finding shipments to haul or finding carriers to ship your items. Based on shipper and carrier feedback, we made some adjustments to our interface so it’s actually easier to use the uShip app on your mobile device to find what you are looking for while on the road.
Overall, we made it easier for your hand to navigate the screen when using your mobile device with a left-to-right navigation. The Menu is now more reachable at the bottom of the screen where your thumb naturally flows when holding your device, instead of the prior top left dropdown Menu.
The Menu is also now ever-present (iOS) – you no longer have to go backward on your screen to access different areas of your account. On Android, just continue to use the ‘back arrow’ on the bottom of your phone.
And, buttons are grouped in a more natural order so they are easier to touch as you naturally hold your device in your hand.
New ‘Find’ screen for service providers
For service providers, there is a new ‘Find’ screen that helps you win business faster. Tap on the magnifying glass icon to search for shipments, check out what’s nearby, view your watched listings, and monitor your saved searches.
We’ve also added better use of alerts within the always-present Menu (iOS). You will see the Notification icon (bell) highlighted each time there is new information about your account.
If you have not downloaded the mobile app, and you are using the uship.com website on your phone or mobile device, we highly encourage you to check it out and see how much easier it is to navigate to the information that you need to get to the most.
