Here’s a great little app that I’ve been using for a while now which makes a strong argument in favor of quality apps that do one thing really well. On the face of it this doesn’t do anything that couldn’t be accomplished using Safari and Maps.
So why would you want it? The good thing about Just Landed is that it quickly and efficiently gives you the info you need to know with zero friction. You get all the details you need:
Status of the flight you’re meeting
How long it’ll take to drive there (and automatic directions in Maps)
What terminal to go to
When you should leave (with push notifications if you want)
…without any extraneous details to get in the way. It’s one of those apps that you’ll hardly ever use, but really appreciate when you eventually do.
