Report: Audio Functionality Operational on iPod Touch

In a recent post on the iPod touch fans forum, Marian, a forum user, shared an exciting development regarding the iPod touch audio input pins. By modifying an old docking cable to connect the line-in pins with an audio source, he successfully activated these pins.

He utilized my voice recording application to capture the audio. Details of his experiment, including images, are available on his personal blog.

I encourage anyone who has an iPod microphone, such as iTalk or MicroMemo, to try it with the VoiceNotes app on an iPod touch to verify compatibility with these pre-existing devices.

Update: Marian has updated his findings, noting that he has successfully recorded audio using a line-in connection.

You can listen to a sample of the recording here. He is now attempting to attach a microphone to the setup.
