Look at Air France being all innovative and tech-savvy! The across-the-pond airliner has developed a new free iPhone app called “Music in the Sky” and it lets users discover new music simply by pointing their iPhone at the sky.

Specifically, Music in the Sky adds exclusive new music tracks to the user’s current playlist when the track is discovered hidden in the clouds. It’s instantly downloadable and the new song can be played right away through the iPhone to either one’s headphones or portable speaker.

What’s more, each region of the sky has its own tracks, whether it’s Paris or Tokyo, San Francisco or Buenos Aires, so users can download a new song every time they travel.

To mark the launch of this new technology, Air France is previewing five unreleased tracks from François & The Atlas Mountains, Eugene McGuinness, Villagers, Melody’s Echo Chamber and Tomorrow’s World; more will be released throughout the year.

The Music in the Sky app is free and it’s worth downloading because in addition to offering new music, it allows the user to test their musical knowledge, too, and win prizes like concert tickets or credit towards a future flight with the airline vis-à-vis hidden games discovered – you guessed it – in the sky.
