hey girls, anyone know an app that we could use, with the impending arrival want to have a group of contacts ready to text, if we dont we'll forget someone :-) would be handy for other items as well, work, friends etc xx

The app "groups" by obix is the one I use and its free. You can set up different groups etc. handy for work texts and family etc.

girls can you tell me if this is free, ie is it just using your 3G data or is each one charged as a text message, my work phone is an iphone and i'll use this if its just using data, thank you.

Whatsapp is really handy for this sort of thing. It's not a text message so just uses your data (or wireless if it's available).

thanks Flower girl, do you know if the recipient needs to have the whatsapp aswell?

Yeah, sorry, they do - it's a free app though so easy to get, but mightn't be handy getting everyone to sign up if it's a very big group.
