IMPORTANT: Apple introduced a bug in iOS 14.2 which prevents message apps from sending to large groups as it should. There is a workaround- when the message window appears, tap the contact area (without selecting a person), tap the back key, then “return”- but until they resolve this bug we have withdrawn the app from sale.
TextShot lets you easily send SMS messages (from iPhone) and iMessages (from all iOS devices) to groups of your friends or colleagues. Messages are sent directly from the app with a single tap of the TextShot logo on the title page.
Save typing by creating your own preset text messages to choose from (such as “I’m running late. I’ll be there as soon as I can”, or “I’ll be there in ten minutes”) then send them with a tap or two.
If you are already a user of our popular MailShot apps, TextShot will feel very familiar as you create your groups.
• Create groups from contacts in your address book
• Rapidly add multiple contacts using a checklist, or import entire address book groups.
• Store your frequently-used messages as presets, for rapid retrieval.
• Use email addresses as contact IDs for iMessage, as well as phone numbers for SMS.
• Paste strings of numbers, or names and numbers directly into text groups.
• Replicates the look and feel of our popular “MailShot” group email app.
TextShot Lite lets you try for free with up to three groups of four people, and storing two pre-written messages (it can easily be upgraded to remove those limits with an in-app purchase). It is also available, without restrictions, as TextShot Pro.
iPhone can send both SMS and iMessages. iPad and iPod touch can only send iMessages.
To avoid sending MMS messages instead of SMS, be sure to disable the switch for “MMS messaging” in the Settings app. (MMS messages can not be sent to more than 10 or 20 in a group, depending on your carrier and device)
NOTE: TextShot is not designed to handle group email (please try MailShot for that)
For any other questions, please see our TextShot Support page.

TextShot Lite works with iPhone 6+, 6, 5S, 5c, 5, 4s and 4, 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.
