Want to be a drummer? Well, now you can live out your dream with your iPod Touch. Sure you won't have drum sticks or anything, but your fingers work just as well. Play along with your favorite song on Drum Kit's full kit. Who won't be impressed by your mad finger skills? Maybe real drummers, but they're all losers anyway*.
*Hollan does not think all drummers are losers.

Midomi Music Identifier and Search Ultra
Midomi allows iPod Touch users the ability to ID songs just by holding your iPod Touch up the speaker the song is playing out of. You can even hum or sing the song and Midomi will be able to tell you the name and artist of the song! This is great for when you have a song stuck in your head and you just can't remember what it is, or if you hear music you like and want to know who made it. Well worth the nearly five bucks indeed.

For only 99 cents you too can pick up an ocarina and play simple tunes, just like Link in the Legend of Zelda (Link to the Past, Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask). Blow into the microphone and press the touch screen to play different notes easily. You can even change the vibrato by tilting your iPod Touch! If you are a fan of Zelda, this is one magical app you just can't pass up.
