Ready To Meet the New Icons?

Marking the first in its efforts to introduce listeners to the service’s upcoming, truly original video content drive, Shark Tank-style reality show Planet of the Apps is getting its official premiere on both Apple Music and iTunes – this week.

Billed as the worldwide search for that next great idea, Apple’s new show will offer up a new episode to Apple Music members every week – as it pits developers against each other in a fight to secure VC funding for their original apps.

Consisting of three stages that include; a 60-second elevator pitch, a so-called “incubation period” where viewers will get to go behind-the-scenes with the app’s creator(s) – as each of the show’s mentors try to advise them and take their idea from concept to ‘final’, and finally leading to the pitch of a lifetime in front of executives at Lightspeed Venture Partners, Planet of the Apps -hosted by Zane Lowe– will arrive as an introduction to what lies behind the glossy wall of apps currently available for download on their iPhone – for many, as the show ultimately aims to take app development, and the ‘creation’ process …mainstream.

So what are you waiting for? … Get yourself over to iTunes today and be sure to catch the show’s global premiere, now available to download.

Then subscribe to Apple Music if you aren’t already a member.

Heck, save a cool 50% on us if you’re a student … and be sure to tune-in every Tuesday to find a brand new episode of the show waiting just for you, inside the ‘TV & Movies’ section of Apple’s Music app across iPhone, iPad and Mac.
