Tap Voice Memo mic for a virtual mic test iOS devices
This hint doesn't accomplish anything, but if you tap the graphical representation of the mic on the screen in the Voice Memos App on the iPhone (OS 3.0), the VU meter registers just like it would if you were tapping on a real mic. It doesn't register anywhere else on the screen, though; just on the mic.

Just like tapping on a real microphone? Please tell me you don't do that. Don't tap on a real microphone. Don't blow into a microphone. Those are potentially damaging actions. To test a mic you should speak into it. Period.

Well, tbh depends on the mic. There's nothing wrong with tapping a dynamic vocal mic, or blowing into a condenser mic afaik.

I just noticed that the microphone UI will "flip over" if you invert the iPhone. Especially handy since the mic is normally on the bottom of the phone. It's more natural to speak into the "top" of the phone when inverted.

It does accomplish something. It reminds me that I cannot use Voice Memo on my iPod Touch.

Good. Grief. Why don't you submit a "hint" pointing out the drop shadows and highlights on UI buttons that make them seem more like real buttons?:|
