There are an awful lot of apps out there in the wild which allow you to “group text.” When they arrived at SXSW last week, Jake and Kelly simply weren’t sure what the heck they should be using to keep in contact with everyone. After watching the official launch on Friday, they were convinced that hot new offering Grouped(In) was the way to go.
Grouped(In) provides a common interface to interact with people in your social circle. Personalizing social communication seems to be the theme of a number of emerging startups, and this app is no exception. It doesn’t matter what method of communication your contacts use. You can combine these missives with Grouped(In) to stay in touch more completely than ever before.
Talking with Brian from Grouped(In), you quickly get a taste of the enthusiasm and passion that went into this app. The team truly believes they have brought something unique to the table and they’re prepared to work even harder to keep it that way.
Why are you still flipping between several different applications in order to get all of the information you need? Grouped(In) delivers it all right to the proverbial door. Keep up with Twitter, Facebook, phone calls, in-app group messaging and regular old SMS messages all within this app. Organize your work and personal connections into groups that make sense for you.
Other features include:
- Access to completely private, instantaneous group messaging.
- Real-time alerts on new messages and comments via push notifications.
- Quick communication with any group member, or members through multiple channels, including phone, SMS and e-mail.
- Follow activities of your group members who are friends on Facebook or those you are following on Twitter within each group stream.
- Customize settings, including notifications, communication preferences, and channels for each group.
- Invite anyone in your contacts list to join a group.
- Follow public content, news, and brands, and receive offers from your favorite merchants and brands.
Easily toggle on and off channel streams, such as Facebook or Twitter, within each group.
After test-driving Grouped(In) during SXSW, Jake and Kelly agree that it is simply the best means of staying connected with a group of people. This is true in many different settings, including special interest groups, sports teams, work groups, family and friends, conferences and tradeshows and even vacations. The possibilities are pretty endless: if you can bring a group of people together, this app can handle the flow of information amongst them.
