MTV Mobile isn't quite the same as most of the other sites in this category, but we thought we would include it because it offers loads of great content for all you mobile music lovers out there. Rather than selling ringtones or content directly, MTV Mobile provides and curates a range of apps to help you keep up to date with the latest music news and discover new tunes while on the move. You'll also find loads of great downloadable content such as Jersey Shores and, of course, Beavis and Butt-head!
The MTV Mobile site itself isn't much more than a page or two giving you all the information you need to get access to all the great content on your mobile device. However, it's still worth pointing out that it's very well designed and easy to browse. Just watch out for the advertiser links – if you point at the wrong thing it's easy to find yourself half way through the process of buying a new phone without even realising what's happening. The links to the apps themselves will just take you through to the appropriate app store for Apple or Android depending on which you select. Folks with older devices won't find much here that will work for them unfortunately.
One of the most popular apps, MTV offers is the MTV News app which delivers all the latest pop, movies and celebrity news straight to your phone. It's brightly coloured, flashy and fun to use – just what you would expect from a company like MTV. However, if your phone isn't quite up to running the app, you can also sign up to text alert music news to keep up to date. A handy compliment to MTV News is the MTV Artists app which lets you see which artists are currently trending on the MTV channel and web site. If you see anyone you like the look of, you can get access to samples and videos directly through the app to find out more.
As well as offering its own apps, MTV heavily recommends a few others that it is involved with. These are well worth a mention too as they make a good addition to any music lover's mobile. Rhapsody is an excellent app for streaming music directly through your mobile phone. With a huge library of tunes and very reasonable prices it's perfect for all your mobile music needs. Pandora is another music lovers dream as it magically creates streaming radio stations based on the music you like. Simply tell it what kind of music you like and it will send you tune after tune of artist you love and artists you will soon love.
MTV offers lots of great content for mobile devices, which is why we have included it in this category. You will find lots of apps and content that will make any modern phone sing and dance more loudly than ever. However, if you are looking for downloadable ringtones or content for an older device you might need to look elsewhere. There are lots of great choices in our top ten!
