    My new app Group Text! is available (and already in new and noteworthy in many iTunes stores).
    The App can send group texts to groups, user defined distributions lists or handpicked contacts.
    You can also create and use templates to save typing.

    If you need a full featured contact manager instead, take a look at my other app ABContacts.

    The app is going well so we translated it in more languages. We've submitted an upgrade with French, Spanish and Deutsch.

    If you can help translate the app in other languages please contact me. We're looking to translate the app in Asian languages and more European languages. Our experience is that professional translators don't do a good work. We're looking for actual iPhone users.
    We'll define how the work will be rewarded ;)

    Meh, actually had a look at that mass text message as i'm looking for a group texting app, not all that impressed.
    So far Group Text is looking pretty good to me
    Any chance of a promo code? I'm new so can't PM you, do you know if the Italian promo codes will work in the UK or will i have to get myself a US account?

    Dear mroddjob,
    I'm sorry I have no more promo codes, I have finished them a couple days ago.
    BTW, developers have only US promo codes, no other country can use them.
    So to use a promo code you have to get a US account.

    P.S.
    Thank you for your comments ;)

    Hi.
    Am looking for an Group texting app that can tell me when messages fail, which recipients have failed. Does your app do this?

    Cheers
    Ian

    Dear Ian,

    if you mean "return receipt", than no app that sends messages using the iPhone OS provided features can do that at the moment.

    If you instead mean if there's a wrong number or other sending issues, then the iPhone will mark the failed messages with a red exclamation point but it does not tell you which recipient caused the problem.

    Thank you

    This looks promising. I would like to try this out. This might fill in a gap in my day to day apps list.

    The app is on sale for the weekend.

    If you're on AT&T and try the app don't forget to turn OFF the iPhone settings option name "Group Messaging".
    If it's ON the phone will fail to send to large groups and will use MMS instead of SMS. Turn if OFF to send regular group text to large groups.

    Hi guys,

    Group texting is a must haver feature for me, as I organise and play football games on a weekly basis, so need to be able to send updates to the group without any hassle. WHY Apple does not include a feature that has been included in most phones over the past ten years (yes, I have a near 10 year old Nokia phone that has this feature) is beyond me.

    Aaaaanyway, this app was my first app store purchase last week (I am a new iPhone user), and I must say, it does the job extremely well. I had a small problem with my phone rebooting once or twice, so I e-mailed the developer (Andrea) who came back to me really quick and helped me resolve it by re-syncing my contacts.

    Probably the best £1.79 I have spent on the store so far, well done :) If anyone is after a group texting app, I would highly recommend this one (even more now that it's on sale).
