*** Featured by Apple multiple times. ***
"Seamless airport pickup" - Lifehacker
"Gorgeous UI" - MacLife
"Beautifully designed" - Mashable
Just Landed™ intelligently updates itself using your current location and the latest flight and traffic information. Just go about your day and the app will tell you when it's time to head for the airport. Never be late to pick someone up again!
We currently support the U.S.A. and Canada, with more countries coming soon. Using the app in other countries may already work but is not officially supported.
*** Concerned about battery life? Read below. ***
Just Landed™ uses a form of background location monitoring called "geofencing" that was introduced in iOS 4. We do this to keep your airport reminders up to date even if you happen to move location while the app is in the background. This form of location monitoring uses dramatically less power than using your phone's GPS. We've made sure that the app does not drain your battery, and if you like, you can also disable the background location monitoring via the app's settings.
What's New in Version 1.4
- iOS 7 compatibility
- Updated database of airlines and airports
- Minor bugs fixed
Takes out the guess work!
Me and my husband love this app! Somehow we always end up being the ones to pick up a parent or family member from the airport. I always have a hard time of trying to figure out when to leave so I get there before my passenger is out of the terminal but not so early that I am constantly doing laps or having to py for parking. That plus with how quickly flight times change and having to do the constant flight tracking it was a head ache. NO MORE!!!! This app is awesome!!!! It is constantly updating the flight time so even when a plane comes in early I'll no plus it tell you when you need to leave to be at the airport on time without being to early and it even gives you an option of sending a text to the person you are picking up once you arrive at the terminal. This takes the stress out of airport traffic duty. Never using anything else.
Not accurate - developer not helpful
I tried this app under different conditions. Curious how it actually works I had contacted the developer and reported to him my following concerns:
- Traffic not updated (it always shows the same travel time)
- Leaving time not calculated accurately
The response from the developer was that it uses its own traffic data (which ones he left unclear), and that "The app isn’t a driving / mapping app, so it’s possible Apple Maps / Google Maps is expecting you to take a different route from the one that the app is using to calculate its estimates” Which one it uses, and which route I should take under these conditions, again, unclear. Also, the route I am usually taking to the airport is the fastest and most direct (using two freeways), and without traffic, it takes 4 minutes longer that what the app suggests. So I am really curious how the app calculates the traffic, but that has been left unclear.
Had I relied on Justlanded, my wife would have had to wait for 20 minutes before I showed up. The comment from the developer was to “not try to outsmart” the app.
Unfortunately all other attempts to contact the developer have remained unanswered, hence my review here.
I like the design of the app and the idea, but unless I fully understand how the data is calculated (especially the traffic) and where it is coming from (as it might affect the route I will actually take to the airport) it is useless to me.
Gave me wrong arrival time
I used to love this app and was about to rate it 5 stars until today (it's worked great the other 4-5 times I've used it). Today it had the wrong arrival time from the scheduled arrival time 24 hours before the flight was supposed to take off (ie the app said the flight was originally scheduled to arrive at 11:09pm when it was actually originally scheduled for 11:35pm). Then when the flight was delayed by 20 minutes, it continued to say due on time at 11:09 when it was actually now due in at 11:50pm. Had I not cross-referenced the airline's website, I would have arrived almost an hour early! What's weird is for the same flight number the next day, it had the correct scheduled arrival time. Maybe it's just a one time fluke but if I have to keep checking the airline's website it defeats the purpose of this app. I'm sad because I really liked this app but I feel like I can't trust it anymore... :(
