In the past, creating professional quality tracks meant dropping some serious cash on high-end software and hardware. In more recent years however, there has been a push toward making it more affordable for musicians to record at home.
Musicians of all calibres, from mom's basement amateurs to true prodigies, can now find the software they need to make music on the go on their iPhones, whenever and wherever they want. But with so many options, it's often hard for people to figure out which app suits them best.
SynthPond gives people with no previous knowledge of music the ability to create beautiful, ambient, soothing synth loops. It uses a color-based notation system, a sequencer referred to as color sentences and a series of concentric "pond-like" circles with resonating notes placed inside them as a panning and timing system.
The ZooZBeat synthesizer has been developed to bring out the little drummer boy in everyday iPhone users. By violently swinging their beloved, expensive and fragile device around like a drumstick, users can produce synth sounds from a variety of instruments.
This is it. The first full-fledged synthesizer available for the iPhone.
Noise.io Pro features everything you would expect from a synth including a large and expandable preset bank, a powerful sequencer, a rich ESFM synthesizer processor, (an enhanced version of the traditional Frequency Modulation) along with all the bells and whistles you can expect from any professional synths.

It successfully brings the addictive feel of the online time-wasting putting greens of yesteryear to an entirely new platform, all the while adding the element of touch controls to the mix, providing the player with a better feel for their shot.
Motion Pool from start-up developer dumbgames.net is an interesting attempt at putting a new twist on the classic pool game formula.
Until now, billiards games for the iPhone and iPod Touch were controlled by either pulling back the pool cue or a dedicated power meter and letting go to shoot, controls that have been used ubiquitously throughout online Flash-based pool games and their slightly more refined older brother, good old-fashioned PC games.
