Apple Updates iOS GarageBand App With iPhone Support [News]

Apple is keeping busy updating their mobile applications, and now they are bringing a new version of their popular music creation program GarageBand. For starters, this update adds support for iPhone, which is the biggest change. The app has been available for iPad users for some time now, but for users looking to create music on the iPad’s smaller cousin, they were left out in the cold.

Thankfully, with version 1.1, that is isn’t a problem anymore. They made some minor tweaks to the user interface to make the app compatible with a smaller screen. Since the app is universal, users who have already purchased it on the iPad will now be able to download it free of charge.

In addition to adding iPhone support the new version also brings some improvements. They added some improvements in terms of available time signatures. The app now supports 3/4 and 6/8 signatures.

On top of some new signatures, you can also change settings for how you export songs to AAC and AIFF formats, giving further customization to the music making process. For touch instruments, you can now adjust the velocity for a little more fine tuning. The last change is the addition of custom chords for Smart Instruments.

The updated version is available for $4.99 for new users and free for current owners of the original version in the iTunes app store.  If you decide to get it, let us know in the comments what you think of it.

    I’ve recently downloaded Garageband for my iPhone 4S and I’m reasonably impressed. I’d like to know if I can import a song that was recorded on my iPhone into GB so I can tweak it? No-one seems to know but I’d like to!
