Apple has extended its GarageBand music platform into the mobile space with the release of GarageBand for iPhone and iPod Touch.
The iOS port of the home recording tool is available for $5 on the App Store platform, and follows the unveiling of GarageBand for iPad earlier this year. It also rounds out iOS availability for GarageBand.
Users will be able to record sound from an amplifier or mixing console through the handset's input jack or built-in microphone.
Mobile handsets might not be the ideal platform for sound recording, but there are some situations where having GarageBand on your iPhone could come in very handy. Performing musicians are one likely audience, as are podcast producers looking to record on location or at events.
Additionally, the iPhone app provides another option for capturing audio and then transporting it to a desktop or other large workstation.
