capture sounds with the audio recorder

App used: GarageBand Price: Free/£3.99/$4.99 Touch Instruments are at the very heart of GarageBand on Apple’s iOS.

But Apple knows that many people still use Microsoft Office, and it has therefore made it quick and easy to import and edit Microsoft files using iWork apps. You can continue to enjoy the improved interface of iWork on your iPad without having to transfer to a Mac or PC to work on a full version…
