I use the iPhone for recording regulary. Jam sessions, concerts. While the sound quality is not brilliant, it surprises me how a tiny microphone can allow for a decent result. So I use it as a sort of little musical notebook. The main thing is to record at a fair distance - the mike gets overloaded quite easily, and there is no such thing as a gain control. I use ITalk for recording.

On my soundclick site, the recording 'BIM jam - what is this thing' was made with the iPhone - I just put it down on the bar next to the stage (and next to the drummer in fact) and started the app.

It doesn't sound any worse than all those live recordings of bird.

I have recorded with my iPhone in the past. Usually I will then transfer the audio out of my phone to mess with the recording. I will usually transfer stuff out to my beatmaker application from beatmaker.net . So far I have been really impressed with the software when handling iPhone audio. I honestly think if you record on an iPhone it is best to transfer the audio out for editing.
