Air Guitar for iPhone/iPod

Inedible Software has launched Air Guitar for the iPhone and iPod touch. Air Guitar uses the built-in accelerometer to work, and lets the player physically strum the device in order to play, with the added effect of strumming harder to play louder. To work the guitar, users can hold down a note and move their hand up and down to strum, or bend the wrist while holding a note to perform a pitch-blend. Some features of the game allow players to choose between guitar and bass, and to use either preset progressions or to make customized ones.

Songs for the game can be used right from the iPhones library, enabling users to play their preferred music. Air Guitar can be downloaded from the App Store and is priced at $2.

    wow

    Hey great - another thing so that people can pretend to do something they can't. Does anyone realize for the cost of all this you can buy a really nice REAL guitar, learn to play, and be a REAL musician. Seriously, this kind of simulations are for total, lazy a** losers. Oh well, guess that's why there is such a big market for them.

    More for the losers

    Instead of wasting your time jacking off with c*** like this, buy a real guitar and learn to play it.

    Just when you thought karaoke couldn't get any worse...

    Oh sorry God!

    What a couple of miserable w@nkers! - Get off (or out from behind) your high horses and let people do what they like without having to put up with your snide comments.

    who's the loser?

    that's like saying rather than buying a flight-sim app, go out and get a real pilot's license. instead of getting your child that toy piano, buy a nice Steinway and get her trained to be a concert pianist.

    oh wait, guess what? not everybody has the time or financial resources to take lessons. and clearly this is not meant to replace a real guitar. it's a two dollar entertainment app you can put on your phone, plink around on and have a laugh with your friends.

    lighten up, guys.

    Real guitar?

    "Does anyone realize for the cost of all this you can buy a really nice REAL guitar", according to 'Guest'
    Wow, a REAL guitar for $2,-?

    And maybe, just like drum computers changed Urban music drastically (instead of using real drummers), apps like this can inspire creative musicians to do something new and different with it. (That is, anyone BUT the first two posters)

    double pu-ke

    Yeah - Urban music is REALLY good isn't it. Now that's innovation - wow! An this ignornant toy is not anything like a drum computer - which still demands an understanding of music and rhythm. And sure, this will inspire people - to think they are musicians instead of the pretend jerkoffs that they are. It's like people who use a Photoshop filter - and think they are an artist.

    Some people...

    Too many people want attention without any semblance of talent to warrant it.
