So what happens if you want to send a message to, say, everyone inthe marketing department, or a select batch of customers? If you'reusing an iPhone or iPad, you have little choice but to manuallyselect their email addresses, one after another. Until Apple corrects this glaring oversight (and perhaps evenafter), look no further than MailShot . This ingenious app lets you build email distribution groups, thenadds those groups to your address book, where they re accessiblefrom all other apps. It s even Siri-friendly. |
The app is a breeze to use. First, you create a group (Sales Team,for example), then choose the contacts you want to add to thatgroup. You can pull names from your contact list (either one at a time orusing a checklist) or enter addresses manually via the Importoption. When you re done, MailShot adds that group to your Contacts app.When the time comes to compose an email, you simply start typingthe name of that group or choose it from the contacts list, same asyou would an individual address. It s precisely because MailShot leverages the Contacts app that itworks with Siri.
So if you have a group called, say, Creative Team,you can tell Siri to "send an email to Creative Team," and she llset one up that s addressed to that group. Sweet. The free version of MailShot lets you create up to three groups,each with up to five contacts. Spring for the Pro version, whichcosts all of $3.99, and the group limit rises to 100, each with 100or more contacts. (The developer rightly notes that some ISPs limitthe maximum number of recipients for any given e-mail).
I think that's four bucks incredibly well spent. The newly released 2.0 version adds support for Exchange addressbooks, increased control over which address book is used, Retinasupport for the new iPad, and other helpful tweaks. It s pretty ridiculous that even in version 5, iOS lacks supportfor something as simple -- and valuable -- as email distributiongroups. Thankfully, there s an app for that, and it's awesome.
