There are a few reviews coming in from our first week on both the largest App Stores, so I will show them here, as its tricky to see reviews from other territories. I’ll also take this opportunity to respond to the one negative one I saw posted.
If you have a problem with getting the app up and running, do please check out our support pages, they are there to help you. If that doesn’t work, do please get in touch so that we can help you, rather than just posting a negative review. We are always happy to help.
Also, if you find MailShot as useful as we think you will, please do spread the word by rating or reviewing it in the App Store, it is much appreciated. Our heartfelt thanks go to those that have already done so.
A life saver….i use my IPad extensively for email when not at home. Unfortunately I could not add “groups” to my contact list on the IPad. How frustrating!
Then I found Mailshot and my problem was solved. it is a very easy application. I now have more than 15 email groups, ranging from 5 addresses to 30. It is awesome.
Another loser app *
You must have written the only review. The free does nothing but create a group. Doesn’t show up in mail when sending mail.
I included this here as it may help others to show what this guy did wrong. Unfortunately we cant respond to reviews in the App Store to help him. Two possible things fit his symptom from his short description. Either
a) He is looking in the wrong addressbook when he looks for the new contact- He should use “All Contacts”, or just start typing the MailShot group name into the “To” field and it will show up.
or b) He isn’t pressing UPDATE to write the contact group to his address book.
Hopefully the walkthrough I have now added to the support page will help others like him.
Don’t know what the previous reviewer did wrong. This groups issue has been one of my biggest frustrations with the iPad. I just created a trial group, and tested it from the mail program. Worked perfectly.
The group also shows up in my contacts from the contact app. I can now get rid of all my other apps that have less elegantly tried to deal with this shortcoming in the mail and contacts apps. Thank you!
Now all I have left to complain about is Flash.
It’s grrrreat! *****

The best thing since sugar-coated cornflakes. Seriously, it’s that good, I was left wondering why it isn’t standard functionality. A must have!
Brilliant App *****

This is a brilliant app and just what the iPad was waiting for.
It enables you to create Groups in your Contacts list and access these from within the iPad’s email app. The Groups appear in your Contacts list as a single entry (say ‘Family’), but contain multiple email addresses. So, when you’re in the iPad’s email app, just select ‘Family’ from your Contacts list (remember, it looks just like a single email address in the contacts list) and your email will be sent to multiple recipients. Best of all, when you look at your sent mail, you’ll see all the recipients listed separately.
You can edit existing MailShot groups from the app – say adding or deleting members individually. The basic app is free to let you evaluate it for a few small groups, but an in-app upgrade (very reasonable) releases the full potential (up to 50 groups with up to 50 members per group). An absolute must-have.
