Group Emails on iOS
Update: There is also an app called "Groups" that does the same thing.
One thing that's always been tricky is sending group emails on your iOS device. There are a few ways to get around it, like putting in all of the email addresses for my students in one line of a contact card separated by commas or semicolons. But that can be a pain to set up and use. One paid option called Mail Shot Pro...is...well, not free. There is a free version but you can only have five contacts in your group and that won't work for a teacher, maybe a family.
But recently another free app came along that seems to fill in the gap called Mail 2 Group. What it does is looks at your iCloud contacts (you can find a tutorial here on how to set that up) and if there are groups there it allows you to pull them and send them an email. Perfect! Thanks Mail 2 Group.
