What It Is
QuickText is a Windows Phone application that lets you quickly send pre-defined group text messages – within 2 taps!
No guarantees, can’t be held liable, use at your own risk, etc.
What It Does
The main feature of QuickText is SPEED. It loads quickly and the user can navigate through the app quickly. Once groups and messages have been configured, it only takes 2 taps to get a group text message ready to send. Load app, select the group, select the message, and you’re done.
For even faster texting, you can pin a group, message, or composition as a start tile!
You can define Groups (a collection of Contacts), Messages, and Group-specific Messages. Contact information can be imported from your phone’s people hub, or entered manually.
Future versions will have support for Message Variables such as the current date/time, gps location, etc.
