Late for lunch? Telenav's OnMyWay for iPhone lets your party know

You’re a pretty punctual person, right? Right. But sometimes stuff just happens, you know? Maybe you forgot your wallet and had to go back. Maybe you couldn’t find your keys. Maybe you had to bust through the front windshield of a flipped-over bus to save the orphans inside.

Whatever the totally-legitimate-and-not-at-all-made-up reason is, Telenav’s OnMyWay for iPhone will automatically let your party know you’re running a bit late, and when they should expect you.

The app isn’t completely automatic, of course; you’ve gotta have the foresight to schedule the event and set up the contacts before you start driving — and if you’ve got that much foresight, you’ve probably got the foresight to leave a bit early, right? Sure. But again: busses full of orphans. They happen.

The app’s free, so it’s worth checking out. We had a few issues getting it to start up after we first installed it, but a quick power cycle fixed that right up. Give it a look, and let us know what you think in the comments below.
