Use ArrivedOK to Let Friends and Family Know Your Flight Has Landed

Website of the Day: ArrivedOK

I want to get a show of hands here — how many of you pick up your cell phones as soon as you land at a destination? A majority of us, right? Geesh, remember the days when cell phones didn't exist and the person picking you up at the airport would have to assume your flight was on time and therefore sit and wait to only realize it was delayed by five hours? Texting and calling "the chosen one" who got the lucky task of picking us up at the airport may be sufficient, but I'm all about simplifying my life even more and now there's ArrivedOK to help me in my quest.

ArrivedOK acts as an international flight tracker and will allow you to input your flight with the destination airport, expected arrival time, and the phone number and emails of the person(s) picking you up at the airport. This amazing site/service will shoot them a message as soon as you land by detecting that your phone has been turned on. The subscriber's phone must be registered with a local GSM network to work.

I have been doing this for years, and there is a much easier way to do it. 1) While in flight I turn my Blackberry back on and set it to Airplane mode as required. 2) I type out my arrival message and address it to whoever should receive it. 3) I click send. Then because the wireless is turned off I get a little hourglass next to the message. 4) As soon as I am on the ground I enable wireless again and off goes the message. Why do I need to download another program to do such a simple task?
