Planetary is an all-new, stunningly beautiful way to explore your music collection, available only on iPad. 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.
Planetary is the first of a new type of visual discovery app produced by Bloom Studio. In the coming months, we'll be releasing an ongoing stream of apps that let you explore and participate in social networks, video streaming services, and location-based applications in a whole new way! We're building new ways to see and communicate.
What's New in Version 2.0.3

They thought of so much...
So, beyond the pure awesomeness of the idea, there's stunning attention to detail. Album artwork shows as the planets' and moons' surfaces, suns, planets and moons get bigger with regular play, orbits related to time... The more you play the more you can discover. Try adding all your music to a single playlist and hop around all your music at once.
Great work guys, love to see what you could do from here.
Great App let down by lack of updates.
Absolutely stunning app for music. Loved the graphics/visuals that would accompany the songs being played and would frequently run my iPads battery flat (so I could have it displaying). Seriously let down however by the only bug I've come across, that being selecting Playlists causes the app to crash. Normally wouldn't be an issue however Planetary appears to load in the last mode used. Launching the app now loads before it crashes, presumably as it is loading in Playlist mode. As there have been no updates for a number of months now, I can't see this bug getting fixed which is a real shame.
Great app, but...
This app is awesome, but after hitting the next arrow to shift to the next track, my screen went black! All the visuals are gone, it still plays music but there's nothing to see. When I click to shift to galaxy or zoom to track or any other option, the text for them still pops up on screen but the main visuals themselves are gone. Still some bugs to fix! Before that the app was great!
