Q: Why is the app named Meev?

A: Initially, we had several name options for the app.  We found out that Meev is derived from the German word for Seagull and it matched perfectly with our slogan of “news that travels” because our goal is to provide you with Local News and events regardless of where you are; across the seven seas.

Q: What is your logo?

A: Meev‘s logo a Seagull and it represents news provided to you as you travel.

Q: What’s the benefit of using Meev vs. other news or local or apps out there?

A: Here at Meev, our goal is to make things easier for people.  We’ve combined Local News, things Nearby, National News, Comics, and much more into 1 app.  When you’re traveling or going from one city or location to another, Meev actually dynamically updates itself and provides you with Local News and things Nearby in the area.  Meev does all the leg work for you, so you know what’s going on outside before heading out there – without turning on your TV for local news.  It eliminates the need to have multiple news app which only cover 1 location. It also eliminates the need to have apps such as Yelp, Foursquare, Urbanspoon, iFunny, Fandango, and many others.

Q: Why can’t I see the whole image in Comics?

A: Images are cropped to display them.  To see the entire image, click on it! This way you can read the entire comic.  You can zoom in on the images and also copy them by clicking and holding down.

Q: How do I set a Location of interest?

A: Click on the top left in Meev where your City is displayed.  From here, you can click on Locations, navigate to your place on interest and select it to Bookmark it.  Now, go back and click on Bookmarked, your location of interest in here, click on it and select Meev, and Local News will automatically update based on your location of interest.

Q: I have selected a Bookmarked Location and I am getting Local News based on that location.  How do I revert to my actual/physical location?

A: Simply go back to Bookmarked and uncheck the location.  Meev will then automatically update Local News based on your physical location.  Closing out the app and re-opening it also reverts to your system location.

Q: Is the weather accurate? And where is it coming from?

A: We are pulling Weather from www.worldweatheronline.com, it is actually very accurate.  Cross match it with other Weather apps you have on your phone!
