MailShot- Group Email

Description of App

MailShot is the ONLY app on the Store that lets you email groups of contacts directly from your favourite apps, as if this feature was built into your device.

MailShot creates special entries in your address book that you can use for sports or work teams and family or friends groups. Now you don't need a separate Group Email program for mailing- simply use the blue "+" in the address line of your mail to add the contact MailShot created for you, and tap "send" (or do it all from Siri!)

This lite version of MailShot allows you to try it out for free with 3 groups of up to 5 people in each. A simple upgrade unlocks the ability to create up to 50 different groups, each of which can contain over 50 people (maximum may depend on your ISP). A "Pro" version of MailShot is also available, which is the same app already upgraded.

  • Use MailShot Groups within almost any app, in place of a regular address book contact.
  • Send documents, photos, or any other attachment direct from your apps to a group. (For example you can use Photos to send multiple images to a group using MailShot.)
  • Now Siri (iPhone4S) can also send email to your groups.
  • The special contacts that MailShot creates can be easily shared between your iOS devices using iCloud or iTunes sync.
  • Easily forward received emails on to your groups (MailShot is the only app we know of that can do this.)
  • Using Mailshot for your regular contacts groups makes it much less likely you will forget to include someone on your email, or accidentally include the wrong person.
  • MailShot Groups can be used in the cc: or bcc: fields of your email too, allowing you to protect other's privacy when needed. 
  • Quickly select or deselect group members in moments as team members swap in and out.
  • Import existing groups from your address book into MailShot.
  • New- add many contacts at once by selecting from a checklist.

Tim, Scotland- UK
This is a brilliant app and just what the iPad was waiting for... An absolute must-have.

Sportsdave- US
A Life saver... I found Mailshot and my (groups) problem was solved. It is a very easy application, I now have more than 15 email groups ranging from 5 addresses to 30. It is awesome.

JudyRoe- UK
Just what I needed... now I can mail all my friends at once from Mail without a special mailing app to do it

Morningbell- US
Excellent and easy for the less-inclined. I was able to send to many people at once, while keeping their privacy intact.

Dave Smith- US
An awesome addition. I use my IPad extensively for email, and have numerous groups I correspond with — some as many as 40 names. MailShot was my perfect answer. Strongly recommend this app.

PNort- US
Should have been part of the iPhone email feature set from the outset. This is a GREAT utility!

Tony Stucco-US
This app is brilliant... Bravo!

Contacts can be synchronized using iTunes (to Google, Yahoo, or your Windows/Mac contacts) or MobileMe, but are intended for use on iOS devices.

To use Exchange Contact Sync with MailShot in IOS4 or higher, you will need to create a local address book in your Contacts app. You can find lots of help for this on our support page.

MailShot works with the vast majority of Mail-capable apps which allow you to edit your email before sending. QuickOffice, Contacts and two calendar apps are the only exceptions we currently know of.

This is the lite version, and it enables you to create three groups with five contacts in each. For $3.99, you can upgrade to MailShot Pro, where you can unlock up to 50 groups with at least 50 contacts in each.
