The MTV Music Meter's been getting some great press lately (like this awesome video from CNN), and Carrot's proud to have worked on it.

The MTV Music Meter allows users to discover new music with a daily Top 100 list of artists. This ranking is determined by their online popularity from "tweets and other social mentions, blog posts, news articles, streams, and purchases for over one million artists". In addition, the Meter provides a comprehensive library of artists to listen to song samples, view their latest news, bio, and photos—all in one location (and now, application).

Last fall, MTV came to us to design native apps for the iPhone, Android and iPad. We helped solve the fun problem of making sure the design and UX was suited for each platform, while still connecting and relating to the web version.

The app is now available for the iPad, iPhone, and Android.

Happy music hunting!
