While IOS allows you to create a group and put contacts in to it, you cannot then use the group name to send an email to everyone in that group. You have to add each person to the email individually; this is where @Groups comes in.
@Groups is a very simple application that enables you to build and edit standard contacts Groups. This contact group can then be added to an email and it will automatically include the email address of each contact in the group.
@Groups will automatically use the first email address found in the contact, so if your contact has more than one please ensure the one you want included in the group is the first one listed in the contact.
You can edit a group's title by simply tapping the name on the top bar while in Group Detail view.
We have also placed a convenient link inside the Contact Group's to that you can launch @Groups to edit a contact group from the normal contacts App, as well as via the normal Icon on your springboard.
Safeguards have been placed in @Groups to ensure it cannot edit or delete your existing contacts. It can only edit and delete Contact Groups that it has created.

Ratings and Reviews
This app organizes your contacts so with one click you can email a group of people. You can choose multiple emails for one contact, you can send as a cc or bcc. It’s so easy!
Pretty Good... One minor improvement suggestion
This works as advertised.
However the interface could be made more useful when updating membership in groups with one tweak - it would be VERY helpful to have contacts who are already members of the group that’s being edited to be marked as such when editing groups.
Developer Response ,
Hi there, thanks for the feedback. We have adjusted this behaviour in the latest version of the app. Please give it a try and hopefully you can revisit your feedback rating. Please get in touch if you have any further suggestions for improvement.
Simple but slightly off
Love how simple @Groups is! Relatively easy to make a group and I appreciate the ability to select which email among multiple to include. (Please update app description too reflect.)
Found I cannot search for contacts and add them to a group. Selecting a contact from search results has no effect. Also, it would be nice if I could Select All contacts in an existing contact group so I don’t have to select people one by one.
Finally, the app description says I can add a group to an email, but I only seem to be able to create a new message from inside the app. Is there some way to send to a group when replying or forwarding an existing message?
