My old phone I had distribution lists setup within my contacts. I.E. a jokes list and Family list, so on so forth, so if I wanted to send these individuals the same text I could just pick that list/group as per the text I was sending. I have seen and installed the app "GROUPS", it doesn’t perform this function, it will more or less help manage your contacts it puts them in groups but you can't pick the list itself.
Is there an app that will allow the user to make a groups/distribution lists, so I can choose the list vice having to pick each individual? IP4, iOS 4.3.3, not jail broken.

Possible workaround: First, make sure Group Messaging is enabled in Settings-Messages. Then create a text for Family, manually adding each member. Send that text. I believe that if you now go back into your Messages app, you'll find you can continue to use that group to send more SMS without having to re-enter the names every time.
Not perfect, but it might work for you.

Group Text SMS for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad on the iTunes App Store
You can make lists within the app then you choose the list and type out the sms and it will send out the message to everyone on that list.
