An iOS version of famous MAME, iMame, is available for free at the App Store. It is based on iMame4All, and then does not require jailbreaking to install additional roms (we can use iExplorer to copy these).

Portal 2 is available (50$ on Steam – 7,5 Gb).
We can also find Beyond Ynth for free at the AppStore for a limited time.

The iPhone/iPad Fairlight application can be controlled (beside using the virtual keyboard or step editing in the sequencer) from a Midi keyboard using either Wifi (thanks to CoreMidi’s  network feature – CoreMidi is available since iOS 4.2) or USB (iPhone camera connection kit required, and also self-powered USB Midi interface).

Setting up a Wifi CoreMidi network is easy :
– on the mac create a Wifi network (for example by using integrated Airport on mac mini – allows direct computer to computer networking) using Networking preferences.
– enable Wifi on the iPhone/iPad and connect to the Airport network.
-launch Audio and Midi Utility, click on Network icon in the Midi configuration window, create a new session (plus button).
– launch Fairlight application on the iPhone. The device is then listed in Directory area of Midi Network Settings on the mac (below My Sessions area). Click on Connect (except if green light). Latency is low and allows playing from a Midi controller.

Note : turn off automatic idle on the iPhone.

The standard version also allows remote playing of instruments using a Midi keyboard, if the later is plugged to a computer that is connected to the same Wifi network as the iPhone/iPad (for example a mac mini that provides Airport network), since iOS 4 now supports CoreMidi (and its network feature).
