Text Blast Free
By Software Pot Pie
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Quickly send text messages to groups of friends.
If you text groups of people or you send the same texts over and over, you need this app.
Define groups to send messages and text that group instead of adding everyone every time.
Define frequently used messages so you can quickly send a text without having to type it each time. A text can be sent in as little as three taps.
Application is ad supported.
* NOT a free text messaging service. Standard text messaging rates apply.
Q: What's up with the icon?
A: Yeah... doesn't make a whole lot of sense. Last minute changes. We're on it.
What's New in Version 1.01
Fixed issue with choosing no group would result in a blank message.
How to fix if new iMessage is preventing use
I use this app for mass textung my student organization at UF. It works wonders, especially since it is easy to use and update, not to mention it's free and the ads arent transmitted via text. Last month however when I updated my iPhone, the new iMessage/group text feature prevented my groups (which had over 10 recipients) from receiving my messages (sadface). No worries though, I just found out you can go to settings > messaging and turn off iMessage and the group message feature. It wont negatively effect anything. In fact, if you want group messaging (different than mass texting) chose a free app like GroupMe, where everyone in your group can see each members responses (like a chat room). Keep up the great app, Text Blast FREE!!
Does what it says, but needs more simple features
This simple app does exactly what it says and has a simple clean interface. A few improvements are needed however. Once you select your group, it launches the standard SMS app with the contacts in the group already in the message.
1. I can not deselect individuals within the app. I have to delete them from the SMS message. Clumsy.
2. When adding contacts to a group, my contact notes are not visible, just the phone numbers. I have too many contacts to remember who is who without those notes, so adding memebers to the group was tough for me.
Four stars because it is free. Three stars if you pay for it.
easy to make a group. allows you to keep a message and send to other groups. If you're on AT&T, make sure you turn off SMS texting or it won't work for large groups
