Popular gyroscope-controlled music app Gyro Air Drums has made it as one of the Top 5 nominees in the Music category for the Best App Ever Awards. The drumming app for the iPhone 4 was also recently featured by Apple in its 2010 iTunes Rewind Hot Trends in Apps chart, having been selected by Apple staff from over 100,000 possible apps.

The Best App Ever Awards were started in 2008 to honour the best iOS apps, not just the best selling. The winners will be announced at the Macworld Expo 2011. In the meantime, if you’ve yet to experience what all the Gyro Air Drums fuss is about, it’s the original gyroscope-controlled drum set for the iPhone 4, which uses the iPhone 4’s gyroscope to enable users to play a virtual set of drums “situated” around them in the air. Recent updates to the app include the ability to adjust drum spacing and hit detection methods to best suit the user’s particular style of play. Here’s a list of the app’s main features courtesy of Logic Consulting:

  • Gyroscope Control
  • Close-able hi-hat
  • Snare Drum
  • Finger controlled bass pedal
  • High and Low Toms
  • Cowbell
  • Crash
  • Taiko Drum
  • Orientation Reset
  • In-app instructions and video

The app is currently on sale at a discounted holiday price of $1.99/ £1.19. You can click here to download it: Gyro Air Drums for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad on the iTunes App Store
