GroupMe is the best way to chat with everyone you know. It's absolutely free, whether you're talking to a group of friends, or texting with one person. Best of all, it works on nearly every phone, via push or SMS. With GroupMe, it's easy to reach anyone, anytime, anywhere.

On GroupMe, you can catch up with your family, get a group together for a night out, coordinate with co-workers, or just gossip with a few of your closest friends. Think about it like your own private Twitter, just for the people you really know. Or like a faster, better reply-all email.

No matter how you think about it, "you won't know how you lived without it once you give it a shot." -Gizmodo

Now a part of the Skype family.

FEATURES:

-Start groups with the people already in your contacts...no need to remember usernames or PINs.
