iShred: To those about to rock, don't do it on the subway or next to me at the DMV

iShred looks like an iPhone guitar app that actually looks usable, assigning chords to buttons at the top of the screen which are then played with a strum of the strings. Best of all, the system has a set of stompboxes for your amping pleasure including tremelo and looping. Overdrive, anyone?

I’ve used a few great guitar apps and the screen is just too small for real finger placement (Isn’t it funny that that I can actually write that iPhone guitar apps don’t let you play guitar well enough? Imagine saying that just two years ago.) Assigning chords is a considerable improvement, it seems, and should allow anyone able to play “Enter Sandman” on a phone in public without sounding like a fool.
