Honey I'm Home is a free application that help you notify your love ones that you're arriving home, simply by sending them SMS.
How it works?
First you have to set your home location and the distance from home that will trigger the sending process.
Second, pick your recipient phone number for sending - you can choose more than one. Edit the message text and the time of day you want to send the message.
Let's say it's winter and I want to send my wife a message to turn on the boiler 15 minutes before I get home from work. I finish working around 5pm and have 15km to drive.
So, after I'll set my home address I may want to pick my wife phone number and set the text to "Honey, I'm on my way. Please turn on the boiler for me!", set the relevant time to 4pm to 6pm, and choose to send the message 10 km from home destination.
