For the movie industry the Cannes Film Festival is one of the most important events in which to preview films and watch the stars. The 65th annual festival is happening in France right now, but if you weren’t able to secure an invite or make the journey, hope is not lost. Film buffs and star gazers can keep tabs on the festival with The Hoolywood Reporter’s new iPad app, Hollywood Reporter: Cannes Film Festival. And, if you did get there and find the opulence a little overwhelming, this app serves as an on-site guide as well.
Calling itself the ultimate companion, the app provides almost-live news, film reviews, and of course, lots of video for those of us watching from afar. Look for lots of Red Carpet moments, gossip from exclusive parties, extensive photo galleries and oh and did I say videos? Ardent fans can even download The Hollywood Reporter festival dailies to see what’s happened so far and not miss any of the remaining action.
And for those on scene there are interactive maps, extensive screening listings, and a mini Cannes travellers’ guide. We envy those enjoying the movie nights on The Riviera, but for the rest of us, this app brings home almost everything except the sun, sand, and surf .
Watch the MTV VMAs (Video Music Awards) over the weekend? No? Well you missed the announcement of Beyonce’s pregnancy, a tribute to Amy Winehouse and many live performances by all the latest and current greatest. Don’t worry, 148apps hasn’t turned into a celebrity gossip site. We do have news of an app that offers exactly that however.
MTV News is that app. Offering what it promises will be ‘unparalleled’ access to the stars, MTV News will bring to iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad owners exactly what fans have come to expect of the MTV website and TV station over the years.

Updated throughout the day, MTV News provides a steady stream of exclusive videos on all things celebrity.

No problems, her stories can vanish focusing instead on whatever the user could want.
Regular blogs feature too with general MTV focused news, TV shows information, music, movies and gaming blogs all covered.
The exclusive content continues with photos from MTV events. Perhaps the best exclusive however is that of special features focused on the upcoming MTV Movie Awards that are set to be held in a few weeks time. The VMAs are already ably covered thanks to a live camera side to the app giving plenty of insider access to those that have to see every last second of Katy Perry at all costs.
For the entertainment fan, MTV News has it covered. It’s made all the better by the fact that the app is entirely free and it’s Universal keeping everyone happy.
