MTV is launching an iPhone and Android app called Under The Thumb in Europe, which will enable people to watch its shows while chatting to friends, and also control playback on their TVs.
MTV worked with creative agency AKQA on the app, which was unveiled at the Mobile World Congress conference in Barcelona. It's due to go live on Apple's App Store and Google's Android Market in March, in seven European countries.
