The Shipping News

Shyp is a new app that saves you the hassle of wrapping a parcel, and standing in line at the post office to ship it.

It lets you send anything, anywhere in the world. All you do to avail of the service is create an account, take a photo of the object, and request a pick-up. Soon, a “Shyp Hero”—that is, a courier—arrives at your door to whisk it away.

It charges $5, plus shipping (which is the cheapest rate of that moment, offered by FedEx, U.P.S. or U.S.P.S.)

In case your decision is dependent on the price, based on your estimate of the package’s size and weight, an in-app option lets you know ahead what it’ll cost you to ship.
