Clay-signal For IPhone?

I need an app for the IPhone that will allow my partner to press a single button to send me a pre-written text message or pre-determined photo. This will be a sort of personalized Bat Signal (we'll call it "The Clay Signal") and will let me know that she needs my attention.

My partner sometimes needs attention from me but, because of anxiety or other issues, doesn't text me. For Valentine's day, I'd like to install on her phone an app that's kind of like the bat-signal, except that it summons me instead of Bruce Wayne. Sure, the problems that prevent her from texting might also prevent her from Clay Signaling. But (1.) we've found that she can often say things in a blog post or an email that she can't in person, in a text conversation, or over the phone, so I'm hoping that this is another case where the medium makes a difference and (2.) it's just as important to reassure her that I'm always going to be there when she needs me as it is to get her to actually send a signal.
(Yeah, there are probably some issues here we should both work on. But that's for another day. This is Valentine's day, damnit.)
In my imagination, this is how it works. When we install the app, we designate a particular photo, text, or combination thereof as "The Clay Signal." Then, whenever my partner presses the app's icon, that signal will be sent instantly to me, via SMS. She won't even see the regular texting app or The Clay Signal itself. The app would just reassure her that I have been contacted.
I can spend up to, say, 15 or 20 bucks on this.
Does such a thing exist? If so, where do I find it?
