If you’re like us you may find that you send similar text messages (or even the exact same message) pretty often. iOS 5, and probably even some of the earlier versions, offers lazy texters like me a quicker way to send those messages. They’re called “Shortcuts” and once you set some up, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without them!
Setup is super easy. Go to Settings > General > Keyboard. At the bottom of the page you will see the “Add New Shortcut…” button. Just select it and fill in the blanks. That’s it!
