Finnish startup Cognitive Maps has launched its free Hitlantis music discovery app for iPhone and iPad. The app, which has already been gaining plenty of buzz in the blogosphere, aims to provide a more visual way to find new music. How? With a sea of bubbles! Artists are represented as colourful bubbles floating around a central `sun’, with users able to zoom in and find out about the largely independent catalogue. That includes biographies, music samples and sharing features, while if users create a Hitlantis account, they can add comments, create playlists and bookmark individual songs. There’s also a streaming radio feature with genres from rock and metal through to electro, pop and R&B, with the screen swooping in on the bubble for each band as they play. The app runs in the background too, enabling other apps to be used while the music plays on. We’ve been giving Hitlantis a spin this morning and have been very impressed – one to add to the likes of Discovr and Music Hunter on the App Store. Source: Music Ally
