Chat services are big business in the App Store. Some make it all that more convenient to talk to friends when on opposite networks to cut down on texting costs. Now with the popular new trend of private group messaging, it’s all the more the rage. MeeYu brings its own version of group chat centered around your mood.
MeeYu, from Jason Cooper, is what they call “a social mood ring.” You begin your status by picking one of the 8 listed moods and updating your status. Choose from Anger, Hate, Happy, Love, Sad, Envy, Shock, or Fear. You can also connect your Facebook and update it through MeeYu if you choose. Here is the full app description:

MeeYu is simple to use. The interface has five areas; My Status, Friends, Add Friends, Chats and Settings. Set-up is a simple registration with just a username, email and password. Just add your friends and you are good to go. Your friends do have to be on the service to talk to one another, but you can send invites to those who don’t have it. Plus it’s free. There are a few banner ads at the bottom but they are only a small nuisance.
MeeYu is a basic chat app with not a lot of frills. The mood theme is fun and it is very easy to use. Categorizing friends into groups could be a big help to users, especially younger ones. It is available in the App Store now and compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.
