Using the Contacts > Direct Message widget with Anywhere


I’d like to see a widget that allows you to directly text a contact. I text my husband 90% of the time, so I have a shortcut to texting him set up using the default messages app.

There is already a message contact widget.


For messages, yes, but I’d like to see one for Anywhere.


Why? Wouldn’t that be a duplicate? It uses Anywhere if it is your default. I do not think we would want to reinvent the wheel.


Anywhere should be your default messaging app then the widget would use anywhere. If you’re using the anywhere app that is designed to be your default messaging app.


Actually the direct message widget is by the contact app not messages.
