Easily Manage Your Contacts Using Groups

There are times when you need to send important messages to multiple contacts. Unfortunately, it is very inconvenient to add individual contacts to the recipient list. It will probably take you several precious minutes before you can send your group message.

The best iPhone and iPad apps for employee management

You can save yourself from a lot of trouble by using Groups for iOS. This app allows you to manage your contacts by organizing them into groups. It allows you to quickly send group SMS or email with just a couple of taps.

The app is available as a free download on the App Store. It is ad-supported but you can remove advertising pop-ups by purchasing a no-ad version.

To start creating groups, you have to allow the app to access your contact list. It will not work if access is disabled. For Touch and the iPad, the app will create groups for your iMessage contacts.

After allowing the app to access your contacts, you can now open the group screen. Assign a name for the group and add a custom icon. Then, tap the add contact button to start selecting contacts from your list. This app allows you to select multiple names so you can transfer all of them to the group with one tap.

Once you have created a group, you can now send messages to multiple contacts. Just select a group and compose a text message or an email message. Tap send and your message will be sent to the group instantly.
