Propellerhead has updated Figure for iPhone and iPod touch to version 1.2, adding support for AudioCopy and WIST. Users can now paste their Figure tracks into other iOS Apps with AudioCopy. WIST lets two people jam together by syncing apps running on different iOS devices. Available immediately as a free update, Figure 1.2 also adds several other user requested features as well as language localization in Chinese, French, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish.
Using AudioCopy, Figure 1.2 users can take their music further by pasting their Figure audio as a perfect loop into any AudioPaste or iOS Pasteboard compatible application. Additional musical performing, looping, arranging, editing and other possibilities open up to Figure users in such apps as Apple's GarageBand, Intua's Beatmaker, Sonoma Wire Works' StudioTrack, Retronyms' Synth, Wizdom Music's MorphWiz, Sound Trends' Looptastic and over 100 other applications from more than 50 companies.

Mix and match Figure with ReBirth, iMS20, iElectribe, Beatmaker and many other compatible apps in new dynamic ways.
