Song entirely done on ipad

It's been a while since I recorded something, but after downloading garageband for the ipad I just had to try it out.

All the recording of the guitars was done through the ipads microphones and all the other instruments are just the built in ones of the app. Turned out pretty good I think, but I'd be grateful for your opinions.

Here's the link:

That is really good quality, the microphone from the iPad lets it down but the stuff that was done on the iPad was really good quality.

I agree the audio quality on the items recorded with a microphone could be better. The acoustic guitar is my favorite part of the song (good!). The vocals are interesting, though they have a lot of distortion (though I like the vocal melody). The violin sound at 3:10 is pleasant. I generally liked the synth sounds, though the synth sound at 3:40 seems to have a bit of a hiccup every time the notes play. Perhaps you could review my music at this link:

Right, so the quality of the stuff recorded via the iPads microphone leaves a lot to be desired.
I know the vocals have a lot of distortion to them. I chose to do so, because in my opinion it creates a nice ambivalence to the rest of the song, which sounds rather mellow. I'm not that happy with how the distortion turned out, but GarageBand only delivers highly limited options on customizing that effect.

Any thoughts on the song in general?
