After you  Create a group by adding contacts from your address book, send a message like this:

  3. Tap the “TextShot” logo.

This will open a message to that group in the Message app, containing  the text you chose.

    1. Enable “Group Messaging” and “MMS messaging” (on the Messages page of the Settings app) to do this.

      IMPORTANT
      This will only work for groups of up to 10 contacts.

      You would need to turn “Group Messaging” off to send to more than 10 again, as SMS.

      This is an intentional design limitation of the international messaging system, to prevent large chains.

    1. Thanks for your kind comments.

      You can include a photo when sending an MMS by tapping the photo icon next to the text box in the messaging window.

      There are two messaging technologies included in the Messages system (three, if you count iMessage) SMS can’t send photos, whereas MMS will send photos, but will not send to groups larger than 10. This is a design limitation of the two technologies, but the details can vary between carriers.

      Go to the Messages page of the Settings app.
      If there is a switch for “Group messaging” visible, turn it off and leave MMS messaging on.
      If there is no switch for group messaging, you have to choose between being able to send to groups larger than 10 (MMS Messaging switch “off”) or sending photos (MMS Messaging switch “on”)

      I hope this helps.

      1. Note that there is a bug in iOS 10 which is affecting us at the moment- No third-party texting app can add a photo to a text message.

        Apple have been notified about this problem, and we are hoping they will resolve it soon.
