Before you complain in the comments about the fact that all of these apps added Chromecast compatibility weeks ago... well, I suppose there's no power in the 'verse that can stop you. We reported that the TED Talks app got Chromecast powers back in November, but apparently Google's Chrome blog just spotted that today, and the Pac-12 app got it back in February. Qello Concerts? It was enabled on March 18th. In fact the only truly newly-equipped app in Google's post is MTV.
Even so, it's notable. The Pac-12 Now app offers live coverage of all kinds of sports from its popular member schools, including the NCAA March Madness tournament currently in its semi-final round. Read More
MTV wants you to know that its new MTV Artists app is now available in the Play Store, and that the offering makes it easy to discover musicians you haven't yet grown accustomed to. It contains thousands of music videos, free tracks, and a sizable selection of photos highlighting artists doing what they do best. You can also use it to discover the name of a track by letting the app listen to a sample of the song.
What MTV doesn't want you to know is that its "new" app used to look like this.
Whoa. Read More
"I want my MTV" was the promotional slogan that Music Television used to get itself onto just about every American cable company. Twenty years later the network seems to have just about anything except music on its lineup, but if you still want it, the new official app can deliver MTV's programming right to your Android phone. The self-titled MTV app grants access to current shows in an on-demand setup, but only if you already pay for cable or satellite TV.
Like HBO Go, the app insists that you sign in with your cable provider ID before you get to any of the full episodes. Read More
Welcome to the latest entry in our Bonus Round series, wherein we tell you all about the new Android games of the day that we couldn't get to during our regular news rounds.

Making it perhaps a little too easy to access Tosh.0's full "online experience," MTV Networks (on behalf of Comedy Central) recently released the official Tosh.0 app to Google's Play Store, adding a suggestion that users ditch their computers, because after all, "opening browser windows is for government workers and exchange students."
The app allows users to immerse themselves in a Tosh-centric world of internet interest, reading posts from the Tosh.0 blog, checking out Tosh's latest caption challenge, and watching videos from all seasons of Tosh.0, including everything from Web Redemptions to Video Breakdowns and more.
The official Tosh.0 app also allows users to get "exclusive" alerts from the show, quickly share Tosh.0 videos on Facebook, and keep a sharp eye on Daniel Tosh's Twitter feed. Read More
