There is finally an app for people who want to use a mic to record on an iPod Touch, but don't want to have to use headphones or have to unplug the mic. It's in the app store and called Gigdaddy. They still have the old version on there called Gigbaby, but it does not have the button to activate the speaker with the mic still plugged in. It has some other cool features too, like mixdown, wireless sharing... I have not fully messed with it yet but the mic/speaker issue got me. It's only $2.99 so very cheap. This is something that I have been looking for with this thing since I got it almost two years ago, and searching around I see many other people looking for the same thing. This pretty much nails it.
