With the launch of the new iPad 2, Apple has also released some new applications for the iPad, which include Mac favourites iMovie and Garage Band, we have just been trying out the new GarageBand iPad App to see how it compares to the Mac version.
GarageBand will work with the original iPad and the new iPad 2 and it comes with a range of cool features and instruments for creating music, and it certainly is a lot of fun, and works very well with the iPads touch interface.
A lot of the instruments in GarageBand for the iPad have been designed to make use of the iPads touchscreen interface, and instruments like the keyboards, and drums certainly are a lot of fun to use.
You get a lot of the features that are available in the Mac version of GarageBand, so if you have used it on the Mac, you should find the iPad version very easy to use.
There are also a range of smart instruments built in, like the acoustic guitar, and it is definitely great for beginners like myself who have never learnt to play an instrument.
There are also a lot of cool other features built in for more accomplished musicians, and you can record you music, and even hook up your guitar to your iPad.
If you are a music fan, and like making your own music, then you should definitely check out GarageBand on the iPad, the touchscreen interface certainly does make it a lot of fun to use.
