VEVO brings music video premieres to your Android phone

by Kate Currin

I want my free VEVO app. Normally I only add music to my phone after I catch a new tune in spin class courtesy of the hip instructors at my gym. Now, I can keep up with hip music with VEVO's video premieres.

This musical Android app brings all the hot, hot, hot videos straight to your phone including explicit versions like Enrique Iglesias' Tonight. I love that there are quick links to buy music I admire on Amazon, but for some reason, Amazon will only let me add the item to my wish list, and not actually purchase it right from the mobile site, bummer.

A clever added touch is random music trivia that shows on the screen while your video briefly loads. There are some short commercials before the videos, but they aren't enough to annoy me into not using the app. You can also quickly share videos you love via email, social networks, etc., with a quick tap of the "Share" option.

You can either watch the top 10 videos currently viewed, video premieres, newly released videos, or search by voice to find what you're looking for in the more-than-25,000-music-video library that is the VEVO app. A list of popular artists makes it easy to peruse the latest musically inclined stars. Or check out the "Playlists" section for top playlists, video charts and celeb picks.
