Planetary for iPad

You probably won’t believe that this is a free app, but Planetary is free, ad-free and totally sublime. It offers a whole new way to browse through and listen to your locally stored music. When you start Planetary, it scans your music library and shows it to you as a ‘universe’. Select a letter of the alphabet, and you’ll see artists as ‘galaxies’. Clicking on any artist name will zoom in to the galaxy and will show you the various albums by that artist as planets — and songs as moons. Click the moon and the song will play. It sounds like something that would only appeal to an astronomer, but the sheer scale, fluidity and beauty of the navigation will blow you away — guaranteed!
