    Pros: 

    - Helps you to reach out to your close circle when you launch a product
    - You can create a contact group which you can reuse everytime

    Cons: 

    None

    I've been using this for the user testing purpose. When I launch something new, I'd reach out to friends and family to give it a try.

    Farbod Saraf has used this product for one month.

Hello people 👋! When I was a student I used a lot group bulk messages to invite my friends for a party or a dinner. I was sending message like "Hello people, I invite you to my party tomorrow, please let me know if you join?" and only the closest friends were answering. Then I improved it to "Hey dude, how are you, I invite you to my party tomorrow, please let me know if you join?", and I got a little bit more answers because it looked more personal. It's only when I added the name of my friend instead of "dude" that I got the highest rate of answers. But what if you have to invite 50 or 100 people 🤔? it takes ages to copy paste and change the name! That is why I decided to build TextBlast 💌, that helps you to send personalized mass messages easily using your friend's name (with the option of editing before sending). It will take you 5 minutes instead of 5 hours 🚀! I hope you like it and also helps you to save some time 😊 *Note that it's not 100% automated because iOS and Android (very recently) restricted the SMS permissions, you will still have to press the sending button ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I've been using this for informing friends and family for a launch of a new product (ask them to give it a try, provide feedback, etc.). You can also create a group of contact that includes the most closest people in your network for different purposes (e.g. invite them for an event, try your new app, etc.). Indeed very handy!

This is actually a life saver! I will use this to promote my new website 😁. Very well design, straight to the point and intuitive app also, I am starting to get convinced by NativeScript ☺️ Did you test if SMS have higher answer rate than WhatsApp for example?

@patricia_mayo1 Thanks a lot! You will see it works good. Well, for the answer rate it really depends on the people you are targetting and your country. In France a lot of people are still using a lot SMS instead of Whatsapp

what is the basic difference between other sms tools?

@debarati_ghosh With Textblast you can automatically append the Firstname or Lastname of your contacts, also the SMS are sent from your device and not a third party number. So your friends really knows that it comes from you. Does this answer your question?
