Earlier this year, UPS Mobile received a big bump in functionality, which was a nice change for an Android app that really didn't have to do all that much. The app puts tracking information front and center, as it should. Why else does anyone even check UPS online?

Now the app has received a 4.1 update that lets users track packages without having to manually juggle all of those tracking numbers. This is a feature exclusively available to My Choice members, which is free depending on what perks are desired. Customers

Foursquare Update Adds GrubHub Seamless Integration For In-App Restaurant Deliveries

This is 2014. We may not have flying cars, hoverboards, or self-drying jackets, but dammit, we can find new and lazier ways to eat good food.
