★★ Top 10 Productivity App in App Store! ★★
Don't Waste Texts! Send TextBombs!
iPod Touch users can now send actual SMS text messages!

With TextBomb you can send personalized messages to everyone you know, even including their name!  Just write the message and press the NAME button where you want their name to show up, and TextBomb will do it for you!

IMPORTANT NOTES!
1. FREE TEXTS: To use free texts, tap "Send SMS" in the home screen.
2. PERSONALIZED TEXTS: To send personalized texts, tap "Sent Textbomb" in the home screen. These use credits, explained below.
3. Mass texting: This app is not designed to send multiple texts to the same person. If you want to do that, add them as multiple entries to your group more than once!


FREE MASS TEXT:
Send unlimited texts through your cell account by composing in TextBomb then tap SEND SMS, which will send the mass text through your cell account. This is Free! Make sure once you compose your message to tap SEND SMS rather than SEND TEXTBOMB. This will bundle up the message and pop it into Apple's Text App. We find that it gets really slow after you add more than 100 people to this function.

PERSONALIZED TEXT:
You can send personalized messages by writing the message, adding the "Insert Name" button where you want the name to appear, and tapping SEND TEXTBOMB. Each recipient will get the text with their first name where the text is.

Personalized texts aren't free. You have to buy credits to use them (we give you a couple free when you buy the app!) To use the personalized text feature we have to send the text messages through our own server! Why do we have to charge? And that's not free for us-- we have to pay five cents for every text that gets sent through the system. So we give you a couple free credits to try out the personalized texts. We're not happy we have to charge -- once we can get rid of the charge, we will.

Why do we send the texts through our own server? Because Apple doesn't allow us to send texts right through to your cell connection-- it requires us to open up the SMS app interface. And if we did that then you wouldn't be able to have customized messages go to each person. You have to send the same message to everyone (which is what happens when you tap "Send SMS" in our app). Once we figure out how to get around this limitation sending mass texts will be FREE!

TextBomb comes with a few free text messages to send to your friends.  Use it to send wishes for a happy holiday or an announcement that you're having a party!

Some ideas:

"Hey NAME, come to my birthday party tonight at 10pm!"
If you send this to John, for example, it will show up as "Hey John, come to my birthday party tonight at 10pm!"

"Hey NAME, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!"
