I want using all of Guitar Effecter Apps.

There are two products, one is Apogee jam and other is Mobile in.

If it was me, I'd get the Apogee Jam, totally.  The only disadvantage is that you can't use the POD Farm app, if that matters to you.

(Apparently it works, but not well: http://line6.com/support/message/333121#333121)

Ibought a few model packs from AmpKit, and they're stunning, I wouldn't miss the POD Farm ones, no matter how great they are.  Though I am a modeling junkie

Mobile In is a high quality audio interface. It will support any Core Audio app running on iPhone/iPad devices.

I think a fair comparison would be to look at the technical specs of the two devices in terms of their audio processing:

Well, my experience of the Mobile In isn't good.

Firstly, it feels cheap and chatty.

It is VERY flaky on my re-installed and clean ipad 2.0. It sometimes works, it sometimes doesn't. It is sometime recognised, sonetimes it isn't.

The actual app crashes every now and then when searching the online tones library and on occasions, returns to the default sound settings, but I'm sure this can be fixed in a future release.

All in all, not stable.

The "quality" cable is crap. Bell wire would make less noise.

Tapping the digital interface, without any cable connected produces audible noise, which tells me cheap components, poor mounting and poor shielding.

I can't compare it to the JAM as I haven't tried one (yet), but if I don't get my main problems sorted, namely the stability,  I'll be asking for a refund and buying the JAM.

I have the Mobile In connector/Mobile Pod app, and I have to admit I'm not too happy with it. My concern is that it has a slight latency in signal processing which makes anything you play have a very digital feel to it. Even the slightest latency (3-5 ms) makes everything sound processed. Save your money for Christmas gifts for your kids:)
