With Group Text! you can easily send mass texts (on iPhone) or mass iMessages (on all devices) to groups, to handpicked set of contacts or to distribution lists. Once you create a list, you no longer have to select contacts one-by-one for a group message. Simply tap on the list or group name and you are ready to send! And if you need to send the same message many times, just save it as a template and pick it later to auto populate the text of your message. You can also easily attach a photo (iOS7 required), the address and maps link of the current or a selected position and contacts information.
Group Text! uses your text plan to send messages and replies are received on the Messages application as usual or uses the iMessages service depending on your settings.
With the Share Extension (iOS8 required), access Group Text! while you're using other apps to share content easily.

The app tells to grants privacy access to app but the app doesn't appear in the privacy section. Cannot use the app.
Couldn’t get app to request access to contacts tried everything it’s junk
Does not work, there is some type of glitch where it doesn’t show up on settings so I can’t go. For access to my contacts Waste of money - if this thing had physical body it wouldn’t even work as a paper weight
Doesn’t sync to contacts even in privacy in settings.. they never replied to my support email or anything. They took my money and ran. Very disappointed
Here’s my review. I have an iPhone X. The instructions tell me to go to the privacy settings to allow the app to access my contacts. The app doesn’t show up there. I tried to contact the developer but can’t. $2.99 for what?
I was using it before I changed cells. However when I try to use it in new phone, it won’t try to access contacts to be useful. It says to give access in settings but when I go to settings>privacy, it’s not listed as an app to give access. Need further instructions cants use it anymore
Downloaded app two weeks ago and it wouldn’t connect to the contacts. Reached out to support and haven’t heard back.
ERROR: This application needs to access the address book. Please enable this app in the Settings app of the device in Privacy-Contacts. However the app never shows up in this area. Please help! I have others using this app for our group. Thank you.
If i could give less than one star i would The app Doesn’t work and no one will get back to me With help. Gives errors and the messages that it says will fix it don’t work. Want my money and time back. Horrible experience
I have an iPhone 8 and I never got this app to work on it. This app had trouble accessing my contacts and I followed the steps that it gave me to troubleshoot it and it still never worked. I ended up downloading the app two times and paying the $2.99 each time and it still didn’t work.
Hasn’t been updated to work on iphone7 and developer doesn’t respond to support questions. Was a great app that’s been neglected. Needs to be updated with a function to turn off iMessage. I want to send texts as SMS not iMessage but it has a mind of its own. Turning off iMessage in iPhone settings does nothing. Very dissatisfied!
Don’t waste your money! No support for this app! Have been having issues for over a year now - will only send via iMessage even though iMessage is turned OFF, so it doesn’t send any messages. All emails sent for support have not been responded to. Pity this was once a very reliable app - used for emergency service paging
How is this different from regular messaging? Well this app allows you to create set distribution lists or create groups for bulk mail out with preset message creation. For regular reminders or updates to a group this works really well. Try it for yourself!
Didn't work. Refund
This app has served me well for the last couple of years. Very handy and easy to use. Making groups is easy and manageable
I cannot get this app to work on iPhone 6 Plus - period. I would like a refund please.
I used to always have to go through and do new group texts due to slight changes in people and not finding the lady group text. NOT ANY MORE! This is sooo much better. Once I figured out how to add and subtract people from the group it is a piece of cake to use. Can temporarily remove people from a group text but they remain in the group. Thanks guys!
Not all SMS in the groups get to clients so I'm not yet happy with it. Once the initial 2hours of uploading all your contacts into groups is complete its a concept that seems to work more efficiently, however as not all people in each group get the SMS you Miss out on business or whatever your intention. It's Not yet clear if this is an application problem or a network problem, however I did explore this with my network provider and they assure me everything is working fine on their end.", so I assume it's the app. Please find a fix and make 100% of SMS in groups work and then I will be very happy as I initially expected.
Thanks to this app!
The app does not update quickly enough to stay compatible with the iPhone updates, which makes the app inefficient. Also, at times, it acts as any other group text, where all recipients end up receiving each other’s replies, which is an overwhelming nuisance and inconvenience. I purchased this app so that I could protect my group text recipients from that nuisance.
I upgraded to an iPhone XR and every time I open the app I get a message telling me to enable the app in my Privacy settings to be able to access my Contact. The problem is the app never asked to access my Contacts so the app doesn’t show up in Privacy->Contacts to be enabled. I have uninstalled/reinstalled and nothing happened. The most irritating thing is that I reached out to support via email TWICE and no response!
Don’t bother spending your money. Not compatible with newer iPhones. Developer forgets to tell you that. I want my money back.
Never use it!
Tiene un error continuo no hay donde comunicarse con servicio al cliente quiero que me retornen el dinero
The app can no longer access contacts in iOS... grrrrr
What’s the hold up? The X’s are 2 years old and you still haven’t updated the app to fill the screen.
Use this weekly for communicating with my teams and programs. Some features have been lost as I upgraded phones, but the batching ability is still huge for my needs.
The app worked very well for me a while ago. Now with the new OS, I cannot get my contacts to load. Having to manually load all the numbers I need.
App worked great on my iPhone 6. Upgraded to iPhone 8 and app will not work.
Good app. Does exactly what it says it does. Easy to use and manage.
Do not download it is useless. It does not work.
Put 45 people on the list it sends 41 messages. Can't handle iMessage so you have it turn iMessage off every time it's used. Avoid
This used to work perfect with iPhone 3. I now have an I-phone 5s and this app can't even send 2 messages together whether I have batches on or off or group text on or off ! Waste of money in its current format
Use all the time to group text my Camogie teams. Would be lost without. Brilliant. Easy to set up and easy to use. Makes my life easy. Thank You!
This app is the business once you get to know how to use it and the suppose team were very help full.
This app is very hit and miss with what contacts it sends texts to. It will not send texts to all contacts in your groups
This app was a complete waste of money. It does not work! Would not even let me write a message never mind send one!
Very easy to use and reliable. Makes testing far far easier.
Very useful App once lists are setup it's a real timesaver
