    Is there a way on the HTC Hero to create a shortcut (icon?) that will launch an app that sends a pre-defined string (10 char) to 46645 (Google) via SMS? I do this sometimes multiple times a day and it sure would be handy to be able to do it via a single click to a shortcut.

    Thx,
    Jon

    Sounds like you could use a macro program. I wish there were one.

    This may not help, but you could(using Handcent) create a new Quick Text for the string you need, and I use Better cut for editing home screen icons, but it also lets you put a small icon on the home screen for direct dial or texting,

    so:

    Use Handcent or Chomp(not tried it on Chomp)

    Create new Quick text

    Get BetterCut (Sense has a widget for putting direct texts on the home screen but i find it takes up too much room) and create a direct text ico

    This wont make it possible in one press, but it will reduce it considerably!!
