    I'm looking to see if there's an app that I can use to create a special shortcut.

    I'd like the shortcut to automatically send a specific sms message to a specific number.

    In this case, I'd like to be able to send a message to my daughter's phone when I arrive to pick her up so she will know to pack her stuff and meet me at the front door.

    Any suggestions?

    Try tasker .. if any app could it, this one could. Its not in the market yet but checkout the website.

    Second option .. Set a shortcut for a direct message to your daughter on the home screen. When you click that, then long press the input box and select insert quick text, select your message, hit send .. (you can configure the quick texts to say whatever you want). I have one that says, "I'm in a meeting, call you back" that I send to people who call when I am in a meeting ..

    I'll give that a look. Thanks. I've actually got a direct message shortcut on my home screen now, so making a quick text will probably get me close enough.

    How can one change the quick texts on the stock msg app? I've been looking for a while now and can't find it. 1.5 on Sprint Hero. Thx.
