Listening to music on your iPad is usually a visually-sparse affair. Load up your player, navigate to your library, and select the muisc. Play, and do other things. Not any more…
Outta this world!
Planetary is the new (and free!) app from Bloom Studios that gives new meaning to navigating through your music collection. To quote the developers:
Fly through a 3D universe dynamically created by information about the recording artists you love. Visit planets that represent your favorite albums and control the playback of your music on iPad by browsing and selecting astronomical objects.
Planetary is just the sort of science fiction experience you expect when using an object from the future like iPad. You’ll want to show your friends this beautiful app. We’ve made it even easier to share Planetary at home; it looks incredible when you hook your iPad 2 up to a big HDTV or projector using the HDMI accessory.
Now Planetary won’t (yet) replace the iPad’s native player as it doesn’t support playlists, or search. But when you think about it, it really doesn’t need to — as the app is more a visual eye-candy layer being applied to the act of browsing through your music collection.
Very pretty; you’ll use it to show off your iPad, and it’s free — why wouldn’t you get it
A great overview in the video below.
