Love this app! You can make killer sounds/melodies/mixes really fast and easy. I love having a customized ringtone and this app makes it possible.

I like Garage Band, my only issue is that it's progressively gotten harder to use. I often times need help finding a feature or whatever. Audacity for my two cents is easier to use!

I have the GarageBand iOS app, and I essentially use it as a "notepad" but for music. I can easily bang out a quick drum loop, strum a few chords on a guitar, hum a melody, etc...all on my phone! It's incredibly useful, and more powerful than it lets on initially.
