MTV announced that it will release the pilot episode of it’s new series, Generation Cryo, on its MTV app first. The episode will be available tonight starting at 12am ET; one week before its television premier. The series follows a 17 year-old girl who discovers that she has 15 half-siblings fathered by the same donor.

“We’ve been actively experimenting with introducing new shows on the app to help build awareness and buzz leading to the premiere on television,” said Robyn DeMarco, Executive Vice President of Programming and Content Strategy for MTV, in a press release. “Our audiences are living on these devices and these platforms provide new opportunities to super serve exclusive content to our fans while simultaneously creating new ways to integrate our ad partners.”

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. All the latest pop culture news is there from music to movies, television, celebrities and gaming.

Updated throughout the day, MTV News provides a steady stream of exclusive videos on all things celebrity. Articles are organized according to category with customization options meaning that users can choose to focus on the stories they care about. Not a fan of Lady Gaga? 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.

Why not give it a shot now in time for the next set of awards?

Remember the game Celebrities? Where teams had to guess as many celebrity names as possible before time ran out? Well it turns out that there’s an iPhone based way of playing it now courtesy of MTV Networks and VH1. It arrives at the same time as NextMovie Trivia Challenge, also from MTV Networks.

VH1 Celebrity Party is a pretty fine conversion of the classic low tech game. Teams of two or more compete in a series of rounds in order to identify as many celebrities as possible in one minute. Clue-givers are first able to say anything but the celebrity’s name with round 2 getting harder and requiring them to only use two words, with the third round players only able to use charades.

The basic Celebrity Party game is a free app to download with a Pro Pack available as an in-app purchase of $0.99 and offering more themed packs as well as the ability to create new packs. There’s also a neat ability to pair multiple iOS devices over Bluetooth so each clue-giver has their own controller.

FREE!

Released: 2011-08-22 :: Category: Games

NextMovie Trivia Challenge has been created by the guys in charge of NextMovie.com. Players are able to challenge their friends in head to head competition or work their way up the game’s leaderboard. A weekly challenge feature ensures everything’s consistently fresh and sections consist of the likes of 1980s movies right up to the current day. Like VH1 Celebrity Party, it’s a free app to download so clearly well worth a look.
