One Big Conversation

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.

The best email apps for iPad

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.

Additional Tools

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.
