SMS Templates is now available at the Apple AppStore! SMS Templates allows you to create predefined text message templates, useful if you send the same messages again and again. You can also associate a template message with a default contact, for the times you send the same message regularly to the same person ("I'm home" to your wife).

To use SMS Templates, just tap on a template, then you can choose to straight ahead send the message, or pick a contact to send the message to. The Messaging application will then start. Double tap the message body and tap Paste, to paste the template into the message body. Tap Send to send the message!

SMS Templates comes with some predefined templates, including messages with emoticons! (Emoji for the Japanese public).

Note - you may be wondering why I didn't just start the Messaging application and prefill the message body automatically. Unfortunately, the iPhone SDK does not currently support this functionality, but I will update the application once it is available.

Hmmm... I will look into building an MMS templates application as well.

Hi Jamie,

Unfortunately, you can't edit a template to add a default recipient. That'll probably be in version 1.2 which is in the pipeline. For now, just create a new template with the same message, and then associate a contact.

Sorry for that!

@rudeboy Thanks a lot! There might be a bug in 1.1. Don't upgrade yet if you can. I'm working on 1.2 to address this bug.

Hi Jamie,

SMS Templates version 1.3 is out! With this free upgrade, you can now edit any template, edit a message before sending it out (without affecting the template), and even specify a phone number that's not in your contacts!

Check it out!
