I have an LG Ally. I have a market SMS popup app that lets me customize the quick text, but that only works if someone texts you first and it pops up. Sometimes I need to sent a quick text to someone that hasn't texted me first, such as "driving" or "call you in a minute". The stock quick texts on the Ally messaging app are pretty lame, and I haven't been able to figure out a way to customize them.

The Handcent SMS app allows for custom template messages.

Is it a popup app or does it take the place of the app that came on the phone? – Carla Helms Jan 6 '11 at 1:25
You can have it popup and it works in conjunction with the app on the phone. You can disable notifications from one of the apps so that you don't get 2 per message. – Matthew Read Jan 6 '11 at 1:59
I'll check it out...thanks – Carla Helms Jan 6 '11 at 14:23
I guess you can't have it all! I liked the other popup app because you could customize notifications for contacts. Handcent SMS doesn't allow that. Oh, well.... – Carla Helms Jan 7 '11 at 12:48
You could probably suggest that feature to Handcent though. Worth a shot anyways – Matthew Read Jan 7 '11 at 17:56
