  1. How do I set up a workflow to choose a specific contact in Contacts and send that person a message via the Messages app? (Akin to how Alfred allows a user to email a specific contact.) I started a new workflow that launches the Messages app, and I tried to add a Contact Action, but that doesn't exactly work: Contact Action comes before, rather than after, Messages -- and I want Messages to start first and enable a specific contact to be used as the input. I welcome advice and suggestions. Thanks!
  2. iMessage Workflow V3 My workflow has been easily surpassed by others, please use theirs ---------> http://www.alfredfor...red/?hl=unicall However, I'm updating this workflow to Alfred 3 for posterity's sake. Sorry for taking so long guys... Archive Change log: 2/12/2017 - Because of a specific error, I've updated this app. Alongside the minor bug, thanks to Amos Manneschmidt's workflow "Call or SMS contact", I learned how to use OSX's built in Contact app to feed out contacts. Furthermore, I updated this app to be compatible with Alfred 3. 4/30/13 - Non-Latin languages are now supported! I have verified Korean, Chinese, and Japanese. If it works for your language, please tell me! 11/27/13 - My extension prioritizes numbers that have been used before. This should allow Alfred to choose the correct number associated with a contact MUCH more accurately. Works only with phone numbers, not email addresses; A notification is now displayed when contacts are not updated successfully (mostly a response to Exceptions thrown when trying to update) 11/21/13 - Emoticons should now work; Alfred now opens up iMessage if its closed ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ If using the OLD way: Setup: Run command 'IMU' before you start using the workflow Find Contacts and Send Messages: Keyword: "im" 1b. Send a message to the aforementioned contact 2. Reply to most recent iMessage or Group Message (Thanks to David Ferguson's Workflow) Keyword: ".."

    Reply to iMessage

    I wrote up an extremely hacky way to reply to iMessages (should also work with SMS, maybe even group conversations) using the chat.db database. It will display the number of who it thinks is your most recent contact so you don't accidentally send your grandmother a reply intended for your significant other. Ideally it would show the person's name by looking up the number in your contacts, but I don't know how to do that so for now it's just the phone number. To use, just open Alfred and type ".. <message>" If it works, you'll see in the sub text the last message from that conversation. Hopefully that provides some useful context. Expect it to not work a fair amount though because the chat.db database is not too reliable. Any suggestions for ways to improve this are welcome. https://www.dropbox.com/s/74ggiacfc3zpk0z/Reply%20to%20iMessage.alfredworkflow?dl=1
  4. Hi, I've been looking for a Workflow to allow me to send messages to a specific person using Messages.app I've searched extensively here and on Google, but the only thing that comes close that works in OS 10.11 is UniCall , but that just takes me to Messages with my target contact. I'm wondering if there is something more full featured that could, for example, attach a file to a mesage, or reply to an incoming message? Thank you...

    Reply to Message

    I've been using this applescript for a while: set _message_ to "{query}" tell application "Messages" set _chats_ to get every text chat repeat with _chat_ in _chats_ try set _check_ to updated of _chat_ set _current_ to updated of _recent_ if _check_ > _current_ then set _recent_ to _chat_ end if on error set _recent_ to _chat_ end try end repeat send _message_ to _recent_ end tell But unfortunately with El Capitan it started sending messages to seemingly random people, certainly not the last one I received a message from. I am looking for a way to modify this script such that it will send _message_ to the last person I either sent a message to or received a message from (as if I opened the app, selected the conversation that appears first and texted them _message_) Such a script would be incredibly useful, especially when paired with Alfred, allowing one to hold a conversation over text while operating another app in full screen. Any help is greatly appreciated
  6. Hi, Just wondering if anyone knows how to use applescript to send sms continuity messages. Sending regular iMessage messages uses: send "Hi there" to theBuddy but this errors out on iMessage using a non-iMessage number. Or at least be able to turn off the iMessage capabilities of a specific user? -Nolan
  7. So basically you type in to Alfred something like "send message to Steve" ("Steve" would be just an example for a name in your contacts) and then a compose message box comes up for you to type in the body of text for the messages. This allows you to send iMessages very quickly and efficiently.
  8. I asked this question in the Workflow Help & Questions forum (http://www.alfredforum.com/forum/13-workflow-help-questions/), but I believe I need even more basic assistance. Currently, Alfred is able to email a specific contact, but I would like also to be able to message a specific contact via the Messages app. If I start typing the name of a contact, Alfred recognizes that contact -- and can even open it, but from there I can't get it to message the person. I've tried various workflows to try to address this. I know how to launch the Messages app, but I can't figure out how to get it to start a new message to a specific contact. I can't make heads or tails out of the "Contact Action" trigger, and I'm not even sure that a Contact Action trigger would help me with this workflow. I realize that this seems very basic, so I feel quite silly. I would appreciate any help or ideas.
