GarageBand now available for iPhone and iPod Touch

There’s no denying that the kind of music creation software available to Joe Public these days is far superior to the kind of technology the Beatles ever had access to, but one of the driving forces in this movement is Apple’s stunningly straightforward GarageBand software. To help budding musos everywhere, Apple has just announced that it has launched on two new devices.

GarageBand for iPhone and iPod Touch is fairly identical to the app found on the iPad. On the tablet, the simple yet deep music software has been, as apple puts it, something of “a big hit,” so it makes sens for them to want to port it to other devices to maximise its potential.

“The innovative Multi-Touch interface combined with Smart Instruments makes it easy to create great sounding music, even if you’ve never studied music or played an instrument before,” says the Apple blurb. If you do play an instrument, you can even plug it into the device via the headphone jack to record straight from there. GarageBand for iPhone and iPod Touch is £2.99 from the app store, or free if you already have the iPad version. Let us know your thoughts on our comments below or via our @Gadget_Helpline Twitter page or Official Facebook group.
