Due to the enormous amount of human establishments, codes and names are used for quick and efficient localization. Various documents require specific country data, such as ZIP codes, being sometimes difficult to find. Luckily, applications like ZIP Express put a large database at your disposal containing such details.
Multiple search methods are available
The application opens up in a rather compact window, but can be resized to get a clearer view. An upper toolbar offers quick access to basic menus and several searching criteria, depending on what you know and are looking for.
City, state and county are but a few categories you can search by, each leading to the same result, updating as you type.
Up to 80 assignable hotkeys
In order to leave precious desktop space free, the application can be set to spend most of its time minimized in the system tray. For ease of access, implemented hotkey support give you the possibility to quickly import data from the application into any active document.
Unfortunately, the feature is poorly design, a breathtaking amount of key combinations being enlisted, leaving you to manually search the desired one. Once you find a keyboard shortcut not in use, pressing the “Modify” button brings up a small window that lets you configure its role.
View an area map for the selected search result
Regardless of the search method used, result is displayed as you type. In case there are more areas and you are not exactly sure which data you need, the application takes you on one of the most commonly used web sites to display an area map of the selected entry.
Taking everything into consideration, we can say that ZIP Express is a handy office assistant when having to work with localization data. Precise info is provided as you type, making sure not even a second is wasted. The user friendly interface lets you quickly accommodate and the map option only enhances available features.
