Planetary iPad Music Player: Space Out While Browsing Your Music


A company called Bloom Studio, Inc. has come up with a unique but intuitive music player for the iPad. They call it Planetary, and it’s meant to provide users a beautiful way of exploring their music collection. Planetary uses a cosmic scheme to categorize music – artists are stars, albums are planets and songs are moons. And Rebecca Black is a black hole.

Here’s Planetary in action, complete with a space explorer-ish narrator:

It’s like an interactive visualizer. Planetary is still in its early stages, and has quite a number of limitations. For one, it doesn’t have controls for shuffle, random or continuous play – you’ll have to pop into the iPod app to toggle those and then go back in to Planetary. It also doesn’t have a search function, and you can only sort by artist name. Playlists are also not supported as of now. Then again, Planetary is available for free, so I guess we can’t really complain. Besides, Bloom will probably continue to improve Planetary over time. iPad users, you know the drill.
