“GarageBand on iPad has been a big hit and we think customers will love using it on their iPhone or iPod touch,” and “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.”

Using the program is as simple as touching the display to “play” drums, keyboard, guitars, bass and more, the program also allows users to choose from a library of custom chords to play and strum to their favorite songs.
