Ghostly International launch iPhone app

Ghostly International have launched their free app for the iPhone and iPad outside the US. The app uses the mood of the listener to control the playlist, and has access to the complete Ghostly and Spectral Sound catalogues (which includes Hieroglyphic Being, HTRK, Loscil and Matthew Dear).

In the words of Ghostly, it's a "mood-based music discovery tool". By using the multi-coloured spectrum circle around the Ghostly logo, you scroll until you match the colour to your mood. Two sliders control pace and atmosphere ('digital' or 'organic'). Tracks are available to buy, and playlists can be shared. Watch the demo below.
