Have looked everywhere for a really good contacts app. I want to put my contacts in different groups and be able to send email to a single contact or to the group. Like put my beekeeping contacts in beekeepers and my family contacts in family. Would be really nice if it would sync with my gmail contacts.
If you want to send to a single group then 'MailShot' is your friend. Many Members use it and you can assign as many members to the group as you want and it's accessible from within the iPad's native Mail app. It imports contacts from the Contacts app too.
A great app.
with a Mac it is very simple, just make changes on the Mac address book, and sync with iTunes, done.
to sync your gmail contacts, which might group too, i forgot.
