When we first discovered Slice, the app that scans your email for packages that you're waiting to be delivered, has updated to version 2.0 and brought a host of new features with it. For starters, if you use Hotmail, AOL, or iCloud as your primary email, you can now join in the fun. You can track outgoing packages by scanning tracking barcodes as well or entering the number manually, and filtering options have been improved.

The app also adds a new feature called "Thingerprint" which, aside from having a truly bizarre name, allows you to see how much money you've spent on what types of goods. So, if you've been feeling like you're spending an inordinate amount of money on gadgets or books lately, now you can get the proof.

Slice is a must-have app for anyone who sends or receives a lot of packages, so if you haven't already downloaded it, grab it from the widget below. Otherwise, your update awaits!

    Now THAT is awesome. I just hope you can edit the refresh rate so it doesn't hog the battery.

    I have long loved this app and this update is just in time for a big shipment out. Thanks for the heads up

    One of my favorite services, similar to TripIt. Nothing but love for them, and I'm glad to see the new update. The barcode scanner integration for when I'm shipping stuff is awesome.

    • Wayne Randall

      no kiddling. Shiprack is very good at what it does.

  • xnifex

    What's the difference between this & Parcels?

      Slice "gather, parse, and retain all your email" go look at their privacy policy.

      Does ShipRack have the option to automatically scan your inboxes, similar to TripIt?

      • Wayne Randall

        no. and that's the beauty of it; it keeps it's nose out of business that has nothing to do with it's service.

        i get a confirmation email, i hit "Forward To: Shiprack", Shiprack then updates me at any/every status update about my shipment.

          You can forward your confirmation emails to orders@slice.com from your inbox. It should automatically be added to your account.

    Even though I use 2 apps. I found that I love "Parcels" for U.S. shipping and "TrackChecker" for international orders like those ones from China... o_O
