More mobile GarageBand you say? Apple heard you and lo, the music creation app is now available for iPhone and iPod touch users.

If you’ve never had the joy of playing around with GarageBand, it uses the Multi-Touch interface to create and record songs, using Touch keyboard, guitar, drums and bass. 

Smart Instruments allowed users to choose from a library of customs chords, to strum along with favourite songs, Apple said.

Check this out though: users can plug an electric guitar into an iPad, iPhone or iPod touch to record through classic amps and stompbox effects, or record voice or acoustic through the devices’ built-in microphones, Apple said.

Apple senior vice president worldwide product marketing Philip Schiller said GarageBand on iPad had been a hit and the company thought iPhone and iPod touch users would love it.

“The innovative Multi-Touch interface combined with Smart Instruments makes it easy to create great sounding music, even if you’ve never studied music or played an instrument before.”

GarageBand 1.1 for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch is available from the App Store for $6.49, or as a free update for iPad users.

The app will run on iPad, iPad 2, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S and iPod touch (3rd and 4th generation).
