Worth checking out, but the Maps app does it already, and more accurately

:
For a free app, this thing is pretty useful. IThe sheer number of countries for which postal code information is offered is impressive. I think it's probably best for getting a general sense of where someone is based solely on their postal code. However, as others have noted, it doesn't have full search capabilities. You can get an idea of all the post codes that might be in an area, but you can't narrow it down further than a city. For instance, if you were looking up Palmerston, NT, Australia, the app will tell you that it's EITHER 0830 or 0831. If you put in NW5, you get a sense of on area centered on Kentish Town in London, but you don't really see the limits of the area described by "NW5". You can't find the precise zip code for 45 Wall Street in New York.

Basically the app is better suited for reverse-lookup than forward lookup. If you get a mysterious PO Box address, you can use that post code to get a map that'll tell you where the post office is—although I suppose the default Maps app would do the same without having to download this. Also if you're dealing with small towns that have only one zip code, you'll probably like this app a lot better. Otherwise, if you have a street address and a city, you'll get more accurate information just using the Google Maps app that was pre-installed on your iPhone. Try typing a postal code and a country or region into the Maps search bar and compare that to the search facility on Zipcodes.

Still, there is something which appeals to the inner geek about having a handy reference tool for Kuwaiti postal codes in your pocket.

A couple of final notes. Previous reviewers who noted a problem with "hiding" countries will be happy to know that this issue has been successfully addressed by the developers. Still, I would prefer for that particular feature to be controlled from within the app itself. I dislike having to go to Settings, then scroll all the way down to find this app's prefs. An option so inherent to the utility of this program really should be accessible on the fly. And one more thing: the name of the app really should be something like PostCodes, because "ZIP Code" is a registered trademark of, and therefore only in common use by, the United States Postal Service.

Awesome

Very awesome. Would like the options to reorder countries, and even better auto-open in a select county (I only do USA searches, and I do lots of them).
