Following up on its critically acclaimed iPhone app, Vevo now has an iPad app available in the App Store.

The app, Vevo HD, provides access to the entire Vevo catalog of more than 25,000 music videos from 7,500 artists. Additionally, it provides news, live streaming events, video premiers and original programming. It also offers a Music Maps feature that lets users see what music videos are being viewed in their general vicinity or selected locations. Additional features include the ability to share videos via social networking sites like Facebook, tour date listings, and accessing artists Twitter feeds.

Vevo struck advertising partnerships with Wrigley, AT&T, Microsoft's Bing service and Chevrolet, among others, to keep it a free app.
