Two Best Free Applications to Create Your own Music on iOS devices

Few days ‘GarageBand’ went free as one of the applications on Apple devices as the part of ‘iLife’ application pack and today we also have another application which has been stated as the application of the week on the App Store of iOS devices. These two are the best applications if you want to produces your own music over the Apple iOS devices. Obviously, ‘GarageBand’ leads the way but it is really heavy for iPhone 4 to operate and it may crash frequently and the same story goes for the iPhone 3GS, so we are stating the second application for those users.

1. GarageBand

This music generation application has most of the general beats and rhythm played by most of the instruments and thus they can repeated and used again and again to generate your music, you also have the option to record the music through the microphone of your iPhone. So, you can play your guitar and sing to record your voice in it. Most of the smart rhythm packs of the application will have to be bought at 5$ but still the features are worth trying.

It seems as if the Apple have really started forging their policies in a different directions. Firstly it was the updates of Mac OS (I.e Maverick) along with the free iLife pack and now the Freemium version of Garageband. I cannot see that where Apple people are heading towards but these are good for us, so no worries.

2. Figure

It is a really great application if you want to produce nice and DJ type beats over the best percussions music. This will give you all the possible percussion music with the beats and you will be able to align them in order to get best electronic music. The application is really good and it has both already programmed percussion sets (4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10 and more beats) along with the feature of producing the beats with the help of finger taps.

These are the best music producing application which are available over the App Store, if you have a better choice then let us know or you can ask anything related to the feature of these applications.

So as soon as this feature was released with Samsung Galaxy S4, an app was also made available on the iPhone App Store offering your iPhone the feature of Dual Camera Mode. Dual Camera mode is a new feature which takes the photographer in the photo (who is usually left out most of the times) by creating a slot for him in the photo. As you can see the home screen of the this application, where by default the back camera will start working but you can flip the camera to front with the highlighted option in the screenshot.
