Welcome to Postbox Finder UK

Postbox Finder UK helps you locate nearby postboxes and post offices in the UK using the GPS built into your phone. The coverage is extensive although there are postboxes that are not currently be included in the application. If you do find missing postboxes, then please help us to locate them so that the app can become more complete. Please follow the below link to dracos and help update the database. Once you have added the missing postbox to the dracos website you should be able to quickly perform an in-app database update and the missing postbox should appear.

You can assist with the accuracy of the data and any missing postboxes by using the following website: http://www.dracos.co.uk/play/locating-postboxes/

If you are having issues with the application then please contact the support email address with the following details and we will try our best to resolve the problem:

  • iOS version (4.1, 4.2, 4.3)
  • Device type (iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod touch)

Version 2.0

Major update. The application now has a loader progress bar when you first install the application so that it doesn't look like it's hung the first time (because it takes a while to initialise the database with the 44,000+ postbox locations).

Also you can now manage retrieving postbox location updates yourself by going to the settings screen and clicking on the "update postbox data" button. This takes you to a screen where you can download the latest data file (approximately 3.81 mb) and then choose to reload the database from the downloaded file when it's convenient.

Thanks for this feedback by pjb200 - Postbox UK lite - Version 2.0 - 29 Jan 2011

For those complaining that not all post boxes are shown please go to http://www.dracos.co.uk/play/locating-postboxes/ to add the ones you know of. I added 3 postboxes to the database, reloaded the database into the app and hey presto my 3 post boxes had appeared on the map immediately!

  • Operating system (iOS 4.1, iOS 4.2)
  • Device type (iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod Touch)
