Free MTV App Helps You Discover New Music

By |

Known, of course, more for reality TV than music in recent years, MTV nonetheless hopes to help you discover new artists or revisit old favorites with its new Music Meter app for iPhone, iPad and Android devices.

A free download, it offers a daily chart of new trending artists, along with brief 30-second audio snippets from Rhapsody, photos, bios, news articles and recent tweets. A database of over 1 million searchable artists is also available to browse, helping you find rising stars in every genre from alternative to hip-hop and punk.

Short, sweet and to the point, it is, if nothing else, a helpful companion for hipsters looking for a quick tip to impress friends or snobby record store clerks with.
