Katana is a digital sword application for the iPhone and iPod touch. Like prior lightsaber applications, Katana lets users swing their devices through the air to hear realistic sword-fighting sounds. Different swinging movements result in different sound effects, and users can also simulate real samurai techniques from Iadio, the traditional Japanese sword-fighting art.


Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
