Last month we were given an early look at music video service Vevo‘s new iOS app, and now it’s gone live with a complete redesign across iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.

It features a feed-based interface to make it easier to discover new videos, a gesture-based interface and a YouTube-esque mini-player for navigating while you continue to watch videos. There’s greater emphasis on playlist creation and users in the US and Canada get access to Vevo TV, the old-school MTV-style linear approach to watching curated music videos.
