SETTINGS INFORMATION: For correct operation of the app, please open the Settings app and make these adjustments in the Messages section.
Group Messaging: OFF
If all of your recipients are iMessage users, your text will be sent as a "Group iMessage". All recipients will see other recipients and their replies in a "chat" format. To prevent a Group iMessage, turn off iMessage or add a non-iMessage user to the mass text. Be aware of carrier SMS limits.

Pros and cons of Custom Group Text app for iPhone and iPad

Custom Group Text app good for

Being a music promoter - this is the best $2.99 Ive ever spent!
As a youth pastor, I can connect with a hundred kids in 5 seconds. Its so easy a baby do it!
Ive had this app for 2 years now and it works perfectly when you adjust the iPhone settings AS INSTRUCTED! You can group friends, family, employees, whatever you want and in whatever combination! Edits easily. It works!
Sent out first text to 58 contacts worked perfectly and quickly. Much better than other app I had before!
I manage two soccer teams and needed a way to contact the teams at tournaments and to communicate last minute changes. This is easy. Just read the instructions.
It works great, needed help uploading contacts and support tried its best to help! Great support! At the end selected each contact one by one but it was worth it!

Some bad moments

The first thing this app tells you to do is to turn off your iMessage. Not into that.
App requires you to shut off iMessage and MMS in order to use. Plus there is no verification of send messages to mass contacts. This is not an efficient way to text groups and confirm they have got a message. Cant believe I had to pay for this.
This app might work a little TOO well. I text over 150 people five days a week, but I have the contacts split up into three different groups of 50. It should be able to handle this fine since Ive split it into smaller groups, but it sends out multiple texts to some of the groups. This is very frustrating because I dont want to be more annoying than I already have to be when mass texting every day. I emailed the support group for the app about the problem a few days ago and got no response. Ill try out another mass texting app now.
...you must first create a group inside the stock iPhone contacts app and then import it over to this app.
The paid version of this app crashes before I open it but the free one doesnt but have more than 10 contacts. This app could get a 5 from me if it didnt crash
Since iOS7 this has become a useless app. Is there any help on the horizon for this or any of the other mass text apps??

Usually Custom Group Text iOS app used & searched for
