I’m about as musical as a warthog, but I am still dazzled by Apple’s free GarageBand app, which turns your iPhone (or iPad) into an impressive touchscreen suite of instruments, with a recording studio on standby if, by chance, you create a decent composition.

However, GarageBand lacks the physicality of a real instrument. Edinburgh’s electronic instrument-maker Skoogmusic now has this big, squidgy – and impressively adaptable – button, Skwitch, to turn your iPhone into a universal instrument, with as much physicality as you could need. Skwitching is satisfying just as a physical sensation, and makes your phone something uncannily close to a “real” instrument.
