"This is a home screen app for sure." -Patrick Rhone (

"I used to have a folder in Pastebot for these types of texts, but Canned is much better suited for the task. The app is simple and blazing fast." -Shawn Blanc (

Customer Reviews

Good, but forgets recipients

Love the concept, and a decent implementation, but the app seems to periodically forget the associated recipient for each canned SMS. Means that I have to go back and re-program the recipient for each one. Seems to happen about every 6 months. If that stopped happening, I would LOVE this app.


I have to regularly send a number of set text messages and this works so very well.

Very good

Many of the reviews are unfair.

@JaJ737 I'm curious. If you want to answer a message with a canned response, wouldn't you pretty much know what the text is going to say already? Theoretically, you send a canned text, they respond with one and you respond with another. What is that?

Moreover, the level of integration will never be allowed by Apple. This is a supplement app. What you want is a replacement app, which again isn't going to happen.
