Android Enthusiasts Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for enthusiasts and power users of the Android operating system. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I would like to attach a certain text to a specific contact number to used as default text when I want to send a text.

In other words: as soon as I select a contact to send a text message to: some default text should already be inserted.

I am aware that programs like tasker can do this. Although undoubtedly a very impressive program, it seems to me to be an overkill to install a program like this, just to have this one feature.

Is this possible ?

@Daniel: I saw the question after I posted mine, but I think my question is indeed slightly different (certainly when looking at the question text it self). So I decided to leave me question be. –  Edelcom Apr 11 '11 at 8:43
    
I kind of agree - I placed the link in case someone was looking for either answer. –  Daniel Apr 11 '11 at 8:44

I can't actually see a way of doing this with Tasker. With Go SMS you can set up per-contact Signatures, which is almost what you want, but not quite (you can't edit the signature, it just gets appended to whatever you type) –  Matt H Apr 11 '11 at 9:25

chompSMS by Delicious Inc. available from Google Play Store.

with lots of extra features like Quick Reply, Quick Compose, Scheduled Messages, Passcode Lock, Privacy, Easy Pick Emoji's, Templates (text snippets), Signatures, heaps of customization options (notifications, ringtones, colors, fonts, wallpapers), Blacklisting and much more!

May diverge a bit from your precise goal, but works like a charm to achieve the same end.

You can use this app to have a ton of templates prepared, and use them when texting someone.

Instead of typing over and over the same thing on different messages, either at the beginning, middle or end of a text, you just long tab the message body and pick up the desired template.
