I recently convinced my brother to use an iPad, heck he even bought one for his wife. They totally enjoyed their iPads until they learned that there is no way to create contact groups and easily send an email to groups on their new high-tech gadgets. There was no way I could help them because all of my searching on the internet pointed to the ugly truth: there is no way to create a group on the native IOS Mail app. Furthermore, when sending to a group (created from a Mac, of course), there is no easy way to pick a group from the contacts list because they're all named 'Group'...what the heck is happening here? Yes, there are apps I can download to remedy this but why is not Apple letting us do this natively on the Mail app? Everyone seems to be ok with it because I cannot find a single forum thread that tackles this extensively. As a long time Mac user, I can just setup groups on my Mac, but how about a person that uses only an iPad? I am now embarrassed to tell my brother that he made the right choice in choosing an iPad. I feel sorry for him because he is not that tech savvy in the first place. He also doesn't have a Mac and I was hoping he'd get one after experiencing the iPad...I just don't know if I can convince him now. Is there some secret conspiracy going on here...LOL. Will Apple ever solve this problem?
