‘Planetary’ App Offers Musical Eye Candy

Bloom Studios has released ‘Planetary’, an iPad application looking to help you rediscover your music collection through an intuitive — and entirely visual — interface.

Instead of listing your music collection like most music players, ‘Planetary’ displays a galaxy built around information gathered from your music library. Stars represent artists, planets represent their albums, and moons represent ¬†individual songs.

To switch from one artist to another, simply scroll to a different star. Once you pick your artist, select a planet and all the songs within the individual album will show up as moons. Moons have different sizes — the more you listen to specific tunes, the more they grow. While large moons represent your favorite tracks, small ones correspond to songs you seldom listen to — a phenomenal way to rediscover music you’ve forgot about.

Even though ‘Planetary’ isn’t much more than a music player, the app truly shines (pun intended) thanks to an incredible, brilliant user interface.

Planetary, free for a limited time, was released on the App Store yesterday.
