Check out this new gizmo from Line 6, for plugging your guitar into your iPhone or iPad. It plugs into the digital audio input on the dock connector on the bottom of the iPhone or iPad, rather than the lo-fi analog input, and it works with any app that uses CoreAudio. I’m really excited by this, because I’ve been pretty dissatisfied with the interfaces I’ve tried that use the lo-fi input.
