Hi,

This thread is for discussing the iPad version of "MailShot" and "MailShot Pro", which take a unique approach to group email for IOS devices. We have been on the App Store for nearly six months, now with over 15,000 users, and MailShot is still the only app on the Store to build group email right into your address book as though it was part of your device.

Helpful links to the app and more info are provided at the bottom of this posting. We will monitor this forum to provide help, but you can find lots of information and FAQs on www.solubleapps.com/mailshot-support or contact me directly through our website if you are having any problems. We are always happy to help and would love to hear about how you are using MailShot, or what other features you would like to see in future versions.

MailShot allows you to email groups of 50 people or more from within your favorite apps, simply by selecting a single contact from your address book. These contacts can be easily used to email whole groups of family or friends, classes, work or sports teams at once.

In addition to the convenience this brings you, it makes MailShot the only easy way to do a number of essential things on iPhone or iPad, such as forwarding an email with attachments to a group of people. You can also now import contact groups from your address book directly into MailShot.

The original version of MailShot will continue to be available as a free download for small groups of contacts (with an in-app purchase available to allow up to 50 groups of 50 contacts or more.) A new Pro edition of MailShot now sits alongside it, as a single download of the fully-upgraded version.

Peter Johnson, Soluble’s founder and Lead Developer said: “We developed this new version because fans of the original wanted to be able to gift the app to others, and some large companies asked us about installing MailShot on a number of machines they were issuing to staff. The in-app purchase doesn’t let you do either of those things. This is all part of our ongoing policy of listening to user requests and trying to give them what they need.”

“We have also found that many users are not yet used to the in-app purchase system, or the concept that the free version can be upgraded directly within the app. Hopefully this new version will help them too.”

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad
* Requires iPhone OS 3.0 or later
* 2.1 MB

Pricing and Availability:
MailShot Pro 1.41 is $3.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Productivity category. A limited free version of MailShot is also available in the App Store, upgradable through in-app purchase to "Pro"
