Developed by ambient pioneer Brian Eno and musician / software designer Peter Chilvers, Bloom explores uncharted territory in the realm of applications for the iPhone and iPod touch. Part instrument, part composition and part artwork, Bloom's innovative controls allow anyone to create elaborate patterns and unique melodies by simply tapping the screen. A generative music player takes over when Bloom is left idle, creating an infinite selection of compositions and their accompanying visualisations.
"Bloom is an endless music machine, a music box for the 21st century. You can play it, and you can watch it play itself." - Brian Eno
- 12 different mood settings

Mesmerising ... go on, you know you want to ...
You know how a pebble tossed into a still pool creates spreading circular ripples? Imagine the ripples were musical notes, and the position of the pebbles controlled the pitch. That is what this is. Make ambient music, or listen to demo music, or just explore and chill. It's soothing, mesmerizing, haunting. Totally worth it I reckon, but I guess some will say not.
Still the best
Bloom was my first App ever and it still fills me with joy and wonder.
With regards to AirPlay support, why not just AirPlay your device via the multitasking bar?
I'd love to see iPhone 5 screen optimisation in Bloom's next update.
Aweshum aweshum schtuff!!
I had no expectations on this app, I just stumbled upon it in Elle Magazine and was curious. I was pleasantly surprised. It's blissful and simple. If you want something to mellow out on and be interactive with then buy it. The beauty is in it's simplicity. I am thoroughly pleased with this purchase
