I've created a simple learning app that allows a user to find their position on a map and email it to friends in the form of a prepopulated email message. You're welcome to check it out (and even use it!) at http://freedommind.com/imhere/.

It has been a decent learning experience, but I would like to make the app more effective by sending the URL via SMS instead of email. The challenge is that I need to launch the SMS app with a recipient preselected and I don't know if that's possible. any ideas?
