It’s hard to know where to begin in describing the iOS app Tapikeo, which just received a fairly substantial update to its iPad version (iTunes, $2.99). “Audio picturebook creator” really doesn’t do it justice.

Garageband is a great app that I think any student or teacher using an iPad should consider buying. It is a multi-track audio editing app that is as robust as you will ever need (unless of course you teach audio production). Later this week I will be posting a new page full of Garageband resources for teachers, students and learning. For now, you can get your brain juices flowing by reading the list below, watching the embeded ‘how to’ videos, and then go start playing with Garageband yourself!
