ExcelSMS - Group Text from Excel

By Sam Yu

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


ExcelSMS is the most efficient way to send group messages. You can add recipient names and phone numbers in an Excel file. You can enter static or personalized text messages right in the Excel spreadsheet. For example, if you enter “Hi {first name}, ...” in a message, the app will take the first name of the recipients and personalize the message, generating text such as “Hi David, …” , “Hi Michael, …”…

You can use an Excel spreadsheet again without editing the spreadsheet on your computer. You can just pick an Excel file, type in a quick message and send it. It is similar to sending a message to a group.

ExcelSMS is also an easy way to send text messages to the contacts on your iPhone. Just pick groups or individual contacts, type in a static or personalized message and send it.

1) Small Businesses
2) Religious Groups
3) Retail
4) Nightlife - Bars & Nightclubs

With ExcelSMS you can :
1. Import group SMS from an Excel file via USB/WiFi/Email.
2. Create your own groups in an Excel spreadsheet and send messages to them.
3. Send unsent messages . If the app is terminated while sending group SMS, the sending task will be continued next time you launch the app..
4. Insert tags ({nickname},{firstname},{lastname},{nickname},{company} etc) in your text message in order to create personalized messages. When you use this function, each message has a personal touch. For example:
Dear {firstname}, Welcome to our dinner party.
5. Use MS Excel 2003 / 2007 / 2010 , , Apple Numbers or any other Excel-compatible applications to create your group text messages. Be sure to save as an Excel 97-2003 Workbook.
6. Export an Excel template , and use it to create your own Excel file.
7. Send SMS to as many recipients as you need within your Excel file
8. Limit the number of recipients per message. The app will split a large message into multiple separate messages.
9. Create a formatted Excel file easily. The file can contain only two columns : Mobile and Message. You can find more example spreadsheets on the app’s website.
10. Create flexible group SMS in your spreadsheet.
For example “{family} Family – Practice Tomorrow at 5pm for little {kidname}!” becomes “David Family – Practice Tomorrow at 5pm for little Johnny!”. The names change over and over again.
11. Create contact groups, you can create in-app groups for Exchange contacts.
12. Choose contacts organized in groups, companies, job titles and cities.
13. Preview messages before sending them out.
14. Skip duplicated phone numbers and messages.
15. The lite version has ads.
16. Send online sms, supporting Google Voice, Twilio, TelApi and Nexmo.
17. Find a way to send messages without user interaction, please contact to for details.

Please check the setting of "Group Messaging" on the iPhone settings. If the option is available, set it to OFF (yes OFF) to be able to send to large groups. If it's on, the iPhone will try to send MMS instead of SMS and will fail to send to large groups.

What's New in Version 3.3

1.Added support for Google Voice. You can now send group SMS via Google Voice.
Google assigns you a quota of 50 SMS text messages when you sign up. Every time you send a text, your quota decreases by one. When you receive a text message in Gmail Chat, the quota increases by five. If your quota reaches zero, it increases to one after 24 hours elapse. One way to increase your quota is to send a text message to your mobile phone, and then use that phone to reply to the message.
2.UI improvement.

Customer Reviews


I think this app will hack in to your contacts from all accounts and send all you contacts junk emails. I say this because my friend received a weight loss product junk mail from my yahoo account, supposedly from me and called me about it. I had my friend forward me that email and noticed that it was disguised as an email that came from me with my name as the subject. And it was not only sent to my friend but to all my contacts in my phone and other email accounts as well. The reason I think this app is responsible is because after I downloaded this app every time I create a contact or modify a contact I started receiving a password confirmation prompt. Also, the day before this bogus email was sent to all my contacts, I noticed that this app was grayed out as if it was being updated or working in the background. Needless to say, I immediately deleted the app and change all my passwords. So be careful and do your research before downloading this app. I personally am convinced that this app was responsible for that.

Works good but could be improved by being able to add a photo

Bad since ios7

This app used to be awesome. Ever since ios7 it has not done what I bought it to do- send texts with excel as the backbone. You cannot send texts unless the recipients are using iPhones now. Uninstalled, I'm done waiting for this app to deliver.
