Chris Wolfe YUMI:synth, £2.99
Compatibility: iPad (requires iOS 4.2 or later)

You may already know Chris Wolfe from his excellent Jasuto synth. His second iOS effort is a bowed string simulator for iPad - all sounds are synthesized as opposed to sample based, you can play two strings at once, and bowing can be manual or automatic. If you’re looking for a recommendation, Jordan Rudess has already given it a five star review.
