OK, this is pretty cool--the strings work and everything.

Not bad for a tiny piece of metal the size of an Altoids tin.

I expect the next feature to make me coffee in the morning. Or feed my cat or something.

I have this on my iPod touch (most of the iphone 3rd party apps work on it) and it`s...eh. Kind of hard to deal with, because it won`t let you put the same finger on two adjacent strings. Maybe because I`m a native violin player, and not a guitarist, but it was really quite awkward.

That said, the fact that they even came up with the idea is pretty cool. It`s probably the best iGuitar that could have been made.

Epic failure on Apple`s part.

Seriously, a cheap ass MIDI imitation..or a real guitar that costs less than the phone itself?

HOLY CRAP. Well, people are stupid. T_T

Was really expecting at least a song. My 3 year old niece can strum on her fischer-price pretend guitar just as well.

The majority of people posting are idiots... This isn`t supposed to be a guitar or even be able to play a song with... Its just merely an experiment.. a little project. Its like da vinci drawing a sketch and all of you dumbf***s criticizing that it is pointless and stupid.

Not bad. I was expecting him to actually play a tune, though. That would have made it a lot more interesting.

You could get a program similar to this for DS... but it`ll require a passme and a guitar app. Or just get jam sessions, but that`s 30 some dollars so.. I`ll stick with homebrew DS kthx

"what a waist of technology"
are you sure its not a neck of technology? maybe an elbow or a thigh?

anyway, working strings is NOT good criteria for rating a guitar. guitars are expected to have working stings.

OK, now I`m starting to consider getting an iPhone. Because I just love all of the stupid little things you can do with them. Really, I do. I`m a geek.

Amen to that!

Cue conversation in a trendy wine bar...

Pretentious iPhone owner: Hey check this out. I can play guitar...on my iPhone!!

Friend: Like, OMFG! That is so awesome! Play something then!

Pretentious iPhone owner: ermm...I don`t know how to actually play a song, but listen. I can get horrible MIDI samples, and as long as the chord only needs 2 fingers, I can play a chord!

Friend: Wow! that`s amazing. Better than my Fender deluxe fat strat. You`re so lucky!

Chicks overhearing the conversation: Who`s the guy with the awesom iPhone guitar? You`re so hot. Take us home and have sex with us. please!

Friend: What about me? I can actually play stuff on a real guitar! I can even plat stuff by Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Bumblefoot and Guthrie Govan!

Hot Chicks: Whatever, loser!

Apple didn`t develop that. There`s a lot of 3rd party applications out from the iPhone right now. Granted, they are all rather pointless.

Uh, yeah. Because THAT looked fun and productive. Seriously, Apple - how about a few less stupid features like the world`s smallest electronic guitar and you charge a little less for the stupid phone?
