GroupText

GroupText


SMS/Text a group of people quickly and easily.

No limit (phone may have limit; see FAQ. E.g. some telephone companies may only allow 10 texts). Users have reported sending over 750 in one go!

Generic Failures notice:
Some phones with Android Jellybean and Kitkat have started getting these. Especially on messages longer than 160 characters.
It seems to be an issue with the phone's build of Android itself - especially Samsung - but we are trying to find a workaround. The Setting "Generic Failure fix" setting may help and it is a good idea to keep messages to less than 160 long.
Remember that other apps have the same issue - it is not just GroupText - we cannot fix the phones.

Uses your Gmail contacts and groups.
History.
Attachments.
Multiple account support.
Group edit (via GroupManager).
Name substitution using "$firstname", "$lastname" and "$fullname".
Schedule messages: send a message later (Note that this new function is in Beta).

This app cannot be saved to the SD card due to an Android feature to allow it to Send Later.

User reviews of GroupText
I like this app sometimes. it seems that when they pdate to fix one problem another occurs. The current is the large number of messages being sent message that pops up for every person in a group. so if you have 40 in a group you get this message 40 times. Aggravating!!!!

It was great until I updated. I do have a Samsung so maybe that's why. But I can't send the mass group message anymore sadly.

Targuard387 Yep, after my phones software updated on my ATT Samsung Galaxy S3 now get a copy of my GroupText text in my regular text app for every person I sent it to. Like the older version better, but will still use for now.
