Finding Fun in Milwaukee Just Got Easier...Thanks to East Town Member, Xorbix Technologies!
Xorbix Technologies, Inc., a Milwaukee-based IT and Mobile App development company, recently launched MEO Events, an event-finding app customizable to your location, interests and schedule. The free MEO Events app is currently available for the iPhone.
MEO Events allows users to browse and search 27 different categories for all kinds of event listings in cities throughout the world. The intuitive user interface makes it easy to find an intimate venue for a romantic night out, a wild party to dance the night away, a festival for the whole family, or a networking event with potential clients. It’s the perfect app to discover an outing in your hometown or a new experience in the cities you visit.
MEO Events Features:
· 27 searchable categories
· Search events by city, zip or address
· Search events by custom dates
· Sort events by popularity, distance, time and title
· Share events through email, Twitter and Facebook
· Mark events you are attending
· Get the distance and direction to the events
“MEO Events is so much easier to use than any other event-finding app out there,” said Megan Zimmerman, Director of Marketing at Xorbix. “We’re really excited to launch it in Milwaukee, where we have such a rich cultural scene. Now everyone in our area can easily connect with events that will help them plan their week. And we’re helping travelers discover the cities they’re visiting, for business or for fun.”
MEO Events was built with technology and best practices that Xorbix engineers have used for over a decade to develop apps for various organizations includingretail, utilities, manufacturing and education. “We are passionate about how technology can foster social connections in our community,” said Xorbix founder and president Asif Bakar. “That’s why we’re so excited about MEO Events – here we are using technology to bring people together and promote our vibrant social scene in Milwaukee and beyond.”
