I think that you will only be able to use this with the one app they provide to record and playback midi. Still, it could be useful in some situations.

IIRC the iPhone has a serial port connection available on it's extension connector, if that one can be set to the MIDI baudrate it would not take much more than a buffer and an opto coupler to provide the MIDI I/O. Not sure about how this would look from the API side but $99.99 seems a bit pricey to me.

ok .. there is some info out there about his, see for instance http://devdot.wikispaces.com/Iphone+Serial+Port+Tutorial
