Text gBlaster is perfect for sending bulk text messages, including tailored messages, to small, large or huge  groups of mobile devices. Getting a message quickly to a group can improve operations, be a convenience, or in an emergency even save lives.

Once installed, choose Text gBlaster in the add-ons menu. The sidebar will take users efficiently through the two steps needed to send out your messages. You may import mobile numbers from a Google Contacts group. After getting acquainted, the steps are designed for rapid completion for repetitive users.

After messages are sent, timestamps and completion status are filled in by line and the entire list of sent messages is archived in a separate tab. The archive will grow with continued use and is helpful for later reference.

Can we update the number that the test comes from? Did a test and it shows a number that no one at our organization would recognize and they may end up ignoring the message. Thanks!

Instead of the "no-reply" default to SMS messages sent from the spreadsheet, is there a way that the text responses can be shown on the spreadsheet?

Nick, thank you for the feedback. This add-on is outbound only and does not record any responses. We are considering a separate SMS-based workflow add-on. Plus, we have consider a one-time response for poll-type texts. You can click on the "Feedback" link to submit your requests. We appreciate the feedback and happy texting!

So far it is great , this "add-on" is a perfect tool to blast important safety messages to my company's field force personnel. Hope the cost after trial is not unreasonable...

Eric, thank you for the high rating and comment. Our fee is the lowest we've seen in the industry at $0.03 USD per SMS message. Plus, $1 admin fee per purchase. The purchase options are 15 messages, 100, 500, 1,000, and 5,000 messages. For example, 1,000 messages x $0.03 = $30 + $1 admin fee = $31.

I have used this so far for my Fantasy Football leagues. I send important updates out to my league members and now we don't have to deal with all of the 'reply alls' on group SMS responses. It's outbound only, so I don't have to deal with any responses LOL! I'm sure I will use it for more applications, but it's a great tool and very easy to use.

Text gBlaster is fast and simple! We input the mobile phone numbers by copying and pasting, then loaded in our message, validated it, and notified all of our customers within minutes!

We just came across this app and it has been very useful for our business already. We were previously sending messages individually and now we can easily send to the group. Pricing is the best we've found and since we are a 'Google based company' we like that it is a 'Google solution.' Thanks!
