If you are a MetroPCS subscriber using an Android smartphone you have a new app that is now available on the network that will let you text multiple people at one time for free. The application is called textPlus and you can grab it on the Android Market right now.

MetroPCS is a contract free wireless carrier that is in use all around the country and offers a wide array of mobile devices to choose from. The deal between the carrier and textPlus allows the user to send texts to multiple contacts at one time at no additional charge on plans that are $45 or $50 monthly.

To use the app on MetroPCS users you have to text “!chat” to the textPlus 60611 short code and then they can enter contacts into the group they want to text with. Apparently, you have to download the app on the Android Market as you normally would.
