"Stands out above other text messaging applications" - Rating 9/10 - The iPhone App Review
"...can make you much more productive over the long run." - Rating 8.5/10 - iPhone Apps Finder
Create your custom groups. Once created, you no longer have to select contacts one-by-one for a group message. Simply tap on the group and send out a text in a matter of seconds.
And, if you need to send the same message again, you can save your text in the ReadyText list to quickly populate your message for another send-out.
This app is a powerful addition to the Messages application already on your iPhone.
-Create custom groups and efficiently add contacts.
-Ease of use: just tap a group name, then type the text
-ReadyText list saves messages for re-use
-Import groups from Contacts.
-Export groups to share with others.
-Import groups from spreadsheets.
-Manage groups: add/ delete contacts from a group, add/delete groups.
-Select/deselect contact(s) for additional flexibility within a group.
-Sent messages appear in Messages history.
-Receive replies in Messages.
-Standard text rates and/or data usage apply.
Your time is valuable. Take a giant leap forward and simplify your group text messaging.
SPECIAL NOTE FOR IOS7:
Apple now limits your text messages to 20 recipients per message for iPhone 5/5s. The limit is 10 recipients for iPhone 4/4S. We recommend the same settings as iOS6 (see below). Additionally, there is a bug in iOS7 that affects a small percentage of users. This bug prevents messages from being sent. We are waiting for a bug fix from Apple to address this problem, but the app has a temporary workaround solution until it is fixed.
REQUIRED SETTINGS FOR iOS6:
MMS Messaging: ON
Group Messaging: OFF
If all of your recipients are iMessage users, your text will be sent as a "Group iMessage". All recipients will see other recipients and their replies in a "chat" format. To prevent a Group iMessage, turn off iMessage.
If issues arise, please email email@example.com
We can't communicate with you if you leave feedback in the App Store. Please give us the opportunity to ensure you are satisfied with your purchase.
What's New in Version 4.0
-Batch Mode to accommodate iOS7 group size limits
-Copy/paste function for working around iOS7 issues
Sooo frustrated :-(
For the third time I can't even send a message to support! it simply reads "error 404 nothing found sorry, but you are looking for something that is not here."
How messed up is this? I was in love with this app for groups of 60, 50, 38 and more that I have an work with regularly.
I get that it may not be their fault, that its iOS seven that is causing on the mass texting problems for groups over 20, but there workarounds aren't working for me this week. They were working last week. And now I can't even get through to send a message to their support? This stinks, and I probably have wasted an hour and a quarter over two days trying every setting in every variation three or four times, and losing my text messages over and over.
This is absolutely on of the best time saving apps out there.
Will there be an update for the new OIS7? My groups of 15 or less are working (but slowly) but my groups that have 90 something addresses will not load up. They display a white screen & eventually return to the opening page.
Waiting with great expectations :-) thanks!
The latest update Nov13 is useless! WOW so I pay $3 for an app that let's me save TEN (that's right 10) contacts per message! I have used the app for year & it's had its ups & downs and I have to say this latest update is a DOWN! I either settle for 10 contacts per message, or go in and change my phone message settings every time I want to text and then back to their daily setting mode OR just give up iMessages & MMS messages altogether in order to text. VERY DISSATISFIED!
You can too see
Well I have been trying to find an application to let me mass text without the recipients seeing each other or being able to respond to the text! Still doesn't hold on this one. Failed! Everyone can see and respond to the message I sent out! Oh well Refund Please!! I'll just stick with my normal messenger to do the same thing! I took the time to group people in the computer so I could use the groups. (Thought I was saving time) just to not even see my groups listed in the add groups screen! 5 minutes and I want out! Refund please!
