Here's a time-saving way to chat with more than one contact at a time and make sure that everyone is on the same page with the information being discussed. The Group Text! app can be used on the iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone as a way to send out mass texts. You can send out these messages to a distribution list, a group, or you can select individual people to send it to. It’s got work and personal uses, making it versatile and flexible.
When you meet with friends, family, or co-workers in person it's easy to have a big group chat but doing so through text messages isn't always as easy. The Group Text! app gives you a way to send out mass texts or even mass iMessages, whichever you prefer. You can go through your address book and pick out the individual contacts, send to a group, or even a list you have set up. Sending out a group message couldn't be any faster or smoother. You can save messages as templates, set up lists to use on an on-going basis, and you can also attach map links, addresses, and photos to the message.
This app was last updated a few months ago with a number of bug fixes. It is now compatible with iPhone 6 and 6 Plus as well. There is an in-app purchase available of the Alerts Manager which gives you the ability to schedule a maximum of 60 recurring alerts or one time alerts with pre-set text and contacts. This purchase is available for $2.99. The app has 4.5 out of five stars from users and if you plan to use the Share Extension you'll need iOS 8.
Send out a group text the easy and quick way
The Group Text! app features a number of built-in tools all with ease-of-use in mind. You can insert the current location into the message text, insert the contact information, and even insert a picked location. Send messages in batches, save and load recipients, print lists, share csv documents by iTunes or email. If you are visually impaired the app supports VoiceOver+. Your templates and lists can be synced through iCloud so it is available on all your mobile devices.
The user interface is a bit dull and standard but don't let this fool you because the features speak for themselves as you'll soon find out.
