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.

Recent changes:
V6.5:
Improve internals of attach picture.

V6.4:
Change to allow Scheduled messages in Android Lollipop.

V6.3:
Added use of READ_PHONE_STATE permission - to make us of non English characters work.

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!!!!

This a great app! Gets the job done! This is a great app with no problems or errors so far for me. It sends individual texts to the group you select. Group messaging made easy!

General Error Sent a 60 character message. Send Failed, Reason: General Error. Well that's certainly useful information. Which ones failed - all of them? Some of them? And why?
