    Long story short,,,, I don't have an iPhone (until the 6 comes out) I'm using my Galaxy 5s while waiting for the iP6.

    I can set up group sms on my S5 but then would have to redo everything all over again when I get the iPhone 6.

    Is there an app for my wifi only iPad Air that will let me send out multi or bulk sms text messages to Android and Apple phone numbers,,,, I wish to send to my to my phone contacts, not email contacts.

    I have a band and would like to start sending out group text messages to notify my phone contacts about gigs and places my band is playing.

    Is there such an app that will do this from a wifi only iPad,,,, been looking for such an app but have not found one yet,,,,, or am I stuck only being able to only send out bulk text sms messages from a smartphone only ????,,,, I found apps for doing that from a smartphone (my S5 or future iPhone 6) but no apps like that for an iPad ????

    Did I miss an app ????

    Thanks in advance,

    I checked Google handouts/hangouts and does not do SMS which is the main function I'm needing.

    Maybe AIM?

    Sent from from my ancient but trustworthy iPhone 5

    There's lots of IM type apps like Hangouts, AIM, iMessages, etc. but I can't think of any app other than the built-in Messages app that sends as SMS on the iPhone. You cannot send SMS from an iPad.
    Note: this will get better with iOS 8 because the iPad will be able to send SMS provided there is an iPhone nearby logged into the same iCloud account. iOS 8 also improves sending groups texts by letting you name the groups.

    Same. Aim, but no actual SMS

    There's no such app for the iPad. You can use other services, like Hangouts by Google.

    If you happen to have Verizon as your carrier... checkout the Messages+ app. I use it on my phone, ipad, and mac.
