SA Group Text is the most efficient way to send group messages. You can add recipient names and phone numbers in an Excel file. You can enter static or personalized text messages right in the Excel spreadsheet. For example, if you enter “Hi {first name}, ...” in a message, the app will take the first name of the recipients and personalize the message, generating text such as “Hi David, …” , “Hi Michael, …”…

You can use an Excel spreadsheet again without editing the spreadsheet on your computer. You can just pick an Excel file, type in a quick message and send it. It is similar to sending a message to a group.

SA Group Text is also an easy way to send text messages to the contacts on your iPhone. Just pick groups or individual contacts, type in a static or personalized message and send it.

10. Create flexible group SMS in your spreadsheet.
For example “{family} Family – Practice Tomorrow at 5pm for little {kidname}!” becomes “David Family – Practice Tomorrow at 5pm for little Johnny!”. The names change over and over again.

Please check the setting of "Group Messaging" on the iPhone settings. If the option is available, set it to OFF (yes OFF) to be able to send to large groups. If it's on, the iPhone will try to send MMS instead of SMS and will fail to send to large groups.

Revision to: Begginer app - Still needs work

I found in the documentation that the background restriction is an APPLE thing. Not sure why that is but I think this app is OK, Still not sure if it was worth the 10 bucks but i upgraded the star rating to three.
It does provide import from excel and bulk SMS text feature works with personalization but no background operation means you will have to tap to send each text. Bummer if you want to send 300, I give it Beginner status app. Not worth 10 bucks.

I think this app will hack in to your contacts from all accounts and send all you contacts junk emails. I say this because my friend received a weight loss product junk mail from my yahoo account, supposedly from me and called me about it. I had my friend forward me that email and noticed that it was disguised as an email that came from me with my name as the subject. And it was not only sent to my friend but to all my contacts in my phone and other email accounts as well. The reason I think this app is responsible is because after I downloaded this app every time I create a contact or modify a contact I started receiving a password confirmation prompt. Also, the day before this bogus email was sent to all my contacts, I noticed that this app was grayed out as if it was being updated or working in the background. Needless to say, I immediately deleted the app and change all my passwords. So be careful and do your research before downloading this app. I personally am convinced that this app was responsible for that.

Simple, Easy, the Best App of It's Type

We use this app as our emergency communications tool. There is some manual setting up, which we've done. But now we can have more than one person be responsible to sending out emergency communications to our employees.

It is true that each txt message goes out individually, but there is nothing wrong with that. It's still better than typing in the message multiple times or having to update your contacts list on your phone whenever there is an employee change. We just update a spreadsheet and we are done.

Simple, easy, the best app of it's type and I've looked at a lot of them!
