I've posted a couple of "tunes" I created with GarageBand for iPad. Please forgive the vocals on the first one as I'm not a singer.

Thanks Chris,

very informative and I like especially the guitar piece you did, and your voice is not as bad as it sounds ;-)

So, just to be clear: there's no way to share GarageBand projects between iPads?

There is. In the review I explained how to pull GarageBand projects off your iPad. Getting them on to another iPad is basically the reverse process. Plug in an iPad, open iTunes, go to that iPad's Apps tab, select GarageBand, and drag the GarageBand project into the documents area for GarageBand. It will be copied to that iPad ready to use in GarageBand.

This is so unfair! How can a 5 dollar app make me really, really want to buy a 500 dollar device? Oh right: Apple!

Ah, but it works on the original iPad too, which can be had for a mere $400. ;)

Ah, so to email the project you need to pull it off the iPad then email that file as an attachment, then your friend downloads the attachment and puts it in their iTunes folder, then connects their iPad to iTunes and imports the file?

Thanks for your help!

Exactly right. You might zip the file before sending it just to be sure it doesn't get mucked up when it passes through email gateways. If the project is too big to fit, find another way to transfer it -- your iDisk or Dropbox, for example.

Thanks again. Looking forward to the inevitable elegant Apple one-button to MobileMe/Dropbox solution! A future update for sure.

What do I exactly need if I want to plug my electric guitar to my iPad and use it in GB? Guitar has standard audio jack output but I am not sure if I can plug it straight to the earphone audio connector on my iPad. Or do I need to buy some additional accessory?
