We have just released version 1.2 of TextShot, our popular group texting app, to the App Store.
TextShot is designed to feel very familiar to all users of our MailShot group email app (although messages are sent from within the app itself this time) and it also adds the ability to create short pre-defined messages, to cut down on typing for messages you send repeatedly.
The new update adds the ability to paste strings of numbers, or names and numbers to rapidly create groups that you can send text to.
As always, if you have any questions please see our support page, or drop us a line from the Support button on the title page of the app.
TextShot Pro works with iPhone 5, 4s, 4, iPod touch, iPad and iPad mini, and is available now on the App Store.
TextShot Lite works with iPhone 5, 4s, 4, iPod touch, iPad and iPad mini, and is a free download that creates up to 2 groups with up to 4 contacts per group.( An in-app purchase removes those restrictions.)
New update for TextShot group texting app adds ability to add phone numbers with custom labels from your address book.
Version 1.1 of our TextShot group texting app has just been released, allowing you to add phone numbers that were marked with custom labels.
Tap the orange phone button on the menu bar to toggle the display of all phone numbers, not just those labelled as “mobile” or “iPhone”.
- Groups size now shown in brackets, e.g. “(3)”, unless some are deselected, e.g. “(2 of 3)”.
- Improved data included in support request emails.
- “Text Preset” now used instead of “template” throughout.
The User Guide has also been updated with an illustrated step-by-step guide to creating your first groups and text presets, through to sending your first message.
As always, if you find TextShot useful, a rating on the App Store would be much appreciated to help spread the word. (You can do this from the Rate button on the title page.)
Over the past two years we have received a lot of requests from our many MailShot users asking us for a companion app to handle text and iMessages. So we are delighted to announce the arrival of TextShot on the App Store this week.
TextShot will feel very familiar to users of our popular MailShot app. Adding contacts to a group is handled in the app in all the same ways, with a very familiar interface.
Unlike MailShot, TextShot sends its messages from within the app, so we also took the opportunity to let you create and send your own preset text messages. Select a group, choose your text, then tap the TextShot logo to create a new message. It saves a lot of typing on that cramped mobile keyboard (and you can easily do it one-handed)
We expect the app to appeal mainly to iPhone users for sending SMS, but you can send iMessages to other iOS users from all iOS devices. TextShot doesn’t handle email.
TextShot is available on the App Store in two versions-
TextShot Lite is free to try, but restricts you to two groups of up to four contacts, and two different text presets. It is upgradable with an in-app purchase.
TextShot Pro removes all of those restrictions.
A Support page and User Guide are also available, and will be built up over the following days. As always, if you need any assistance please get in touch through the Support button on the front page of the app.
