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?

Keep Your Songs Straight with the New Rock Band App

Last week's release of Rock Band 3 pushed the platform's total number of songs well above 2,000. And with the company pushing to get 5,000 songs into the setlist over the coming years, trying to keep that many tracks straight can be quite a challenge. Thankfully, much like everything else in the world, there's an app for that with third-party developers Three Brothers creating a sortable list of Rock Band music.

This free app allows users to organize songs based on artist, song, version or even difficulty. So if you remember there's that one bluegrass song that's ridiculously hard in Rock Band but can't think of its name then this little wonder will handily tell you that it's "Green Grass and High Tides" which completely wrecked your fingers. Of course there's a big fear that the app will quickly grow outdated due to the ever-expanding musical lineup, but the developers are promising monthly updates to keep the library totally up to date.

Perhaps the most devious inclusion of all is the ability to preview or purchase songs with a single click, allowing you to play a song in Rock Band and then immediately head over to your iPhone or iPod and add the track to your musical library. Just remember that just because you feel nostalgic and hip playing Smashmouth's "Walkin' on the Sun" right now doesn't mean you'll still want to hear it in a month. Just ask the late '90s about that.

The app iss available right now and, as mentioned before, it's totally free. If you're a Rock Band fan who's tired of scrolling through the menus trying to find a particular song then try out this handy little solution. And we already apologize for how your bank account will soon be emptied from buying all this music.
