About Me Professional Musician
The software is not in the app store. Bought this for my touch 2g. Blue customer service gave a list of compatible software. Unfortunately, none of it was not compatible with my touch. Bottom line is I haven't been able to use it.
Good for most portable recording purposes.

About Me Experienced
BuyDig titles this product, "Microphone for iPod and iPhone", and describes it "Mikey 2.0 turns your iPod or iPhone into a high quality mobile recording device." You have to scroll down a page to find out that they mean the archaic iPod and iPhone models that Apple hasn't sold for two years or more. I have the original Mikey, which doesn't work with the iPhone 4/iPod 4. I imagined that the Mikey 2.0, advertised as working with iPhone and iPod, would work with current models. I was wrong. There is a new version, which does work with current/recent models of iPhone and iPod. It is called "Mikey"! So a product called simply "Mikey" could refer to the old original, or to the current model that is newer than the Mikey 2.0. Misleading/confusing on the part of both BuyDig and Blue Microphones. Only buy this if you have older iDevices.
Good Mic, Great Price, Prompt Delivery
from Yorba Linda, CA
This mic has three sensitivity settings. It sound great at the lowest setting and has good noise rejection. I recorded acoustic guitar in my back yard and it got the birds, but not the planes. At higher settings you can get more noise. I have four other higher end BLUE mics, and this one is surprisingly good, especially for the price. This vendor has the best price, about 1/3 of the big stores.
Great Tool at a Great Price
By Super Duke
from Cumming, GA
This is a great deal for a great price. I use it to record ideas for voice-over character work.
Very useful and functional.
from Perry, KS
Works perfectly. Simple set-up. Difficult to eliminate background noise because it is very sensitive. Don't know if it is professional quality but for recording live performances for personal memories or recording a tune you just thought up for later use it is ideal.
Now I'm big time.
from Bakersfield, Ca
I have been wanting to use my gen 2 touch for recording but was not happy with the built in mic. This brings it up to pro specs in one step.
from philadelphia, pa
no wires , no cables, no batteries, very little sound check necessary, cheap.
