Receiving the Zoom IQ5 stereo Microphone for my iPhone/iPad!

Hi all,
I came here to bring some exciting news: I will be receiving the Zoom IQ5 stereo microphone for my iPhone/iPad! i'm super excited! I ordered the mic from, and it will arrive this week. I will let you know how things goe as soon as I receive it. I remembered on the apple vis podcast, drew gave a demonstration of the Tascam IM2, which pplugs directly into the iPhone/iPad using the 30-pin connecter for older devices. but, however, the zoom IQ5 plugs directly into the iPhone/iPad using the lightning connecter for current devices. and it has an earphone jak for monitoring the mix, as well as a mini USB port for charging your device while recording a podcast. this Mmic works amazingly well with the camera app too! Zoom also has it's own app called the Handy Recorder app, which works with the mic itself. It's a free app which can be downloaded from the app store. as stated before, I will be receiving it this week, and will let you know how it goes after I've tested it.
