With the US Postal Service’s new iPhone app, it’s easier than ever to get people to sign up for its service, with no upfront cost.
But how can you make sure you’re getting the most out of it?

The app will be available on the iPhone 4S and iPhone 5 starting today.
The app features a unique ad-free experience where users can purchase stamps and stamps online or sign up with a username and password.
Users can also opt to pay with a credit card or debit card.

For example, users can opt to view the service’s full product list, search the app for a service they want, or read up on a service’s history.
The service also includes an extensive customer feedback feature, with users able to leave their feedback and see which ones have been most helpful.
