With an extensive set of exclusive emoji, you can express yourself in a whole new way.
THE WHOLE INTERNET IN YOUR GROUP

Overall value of the GroupMe app
The App is a great tool used in a project I have going on. While people find it easy to set up and use from an end user point of view need to have an edit or delete option to your own post after submitting it i.e. Miss-spelling or wrong word used
As app manager it's VERY DIFFICULT to get room membership increased. Even after giving required information process is too lengthy a process from the GroupMe tech side to accomplish it. The app sends an automated response saying it was received and hours of operation but NO PHONE NUMBER to contact AT ALL! Response to request or other is sometimes lost or never taken action on. This is the only down side so far and is at point of forcing the need to take a look at other apps.
Otherwise great tool if used properly.
So Much Better than Group Text!
I don't want to write an essay. So I'll say this. I use GroupMe for business conversations, personal social conversations and planning family events. It's a coherent and efficient way to speak to several people at once, without the annoying scattered messages or responses from unidentified contacts which occurs when you're randomly included in group text conversations. I absolutely love group me. I won't even go there with how easy it is to share memes, photos, invitations, calendar events and likes. Groupme made it feasible for me to reject Facebook but remain connected. Thank you Groupme! Ok, so maybe I did write an essay :-D
Good short term, bad long term
Don't get me wrong, this app is pretty decent. But if you have a group going for a while (at least, that's what it seems like for my groups), it eventually gets laggy. It messes up. I click on a picture, it opens, and I hold to save the picture, but nothing happens. I try holding again, and it exits the picture and moves my chat up to what was said a week ago, and I have to either scroll down or go to the chat selection then select the chat again. Basically, it keeps teleporting me to random parts of the chat, anywhere from a few days earlier to a month earlier. But this only just started happening when I updated to iOS 10, so maybe it's a glitch. Who knows? Regardless, fix this issue, GroupMe devs. I already prefer WhatsApp, but I want to like you again.
