If you've always dreamed of being like Phil Collins or the guy from Def Lepperd who had one arm, but could never afford a drum kit, then D-Pod could be the perfect solution for you.

The application allows you to turn your Palm device into a virtual drum kit, so you can impress/annoy people with your drumming 'skills' everywhere you go.

The program itself consists of an environment with nine different icons. Each of these represents a standard part of the drum kit set-up, such as the cymbals, toms, bass, etc.

It'll probably take you a while to figure out which icon represents which element because they're all pretty badly drawn in what is a scrappy interface.

The sounds themselves are a fair reflection of the real thing but, of course, the Palm speakers are a poor substitute for a huge PA system.

With a few other options such as volume controls and the ability to record sequences, D-Pod is an interesting diversion for a while but interest soon fades the more you listen to it.

D-Pod is a simple drum pad application. You can play the pads with two sets of drum sounds and adjust the volume too. D-Pod is another application in the Palm Sounds series of Sound Toys.

These are simple sound applications that allow you to play with noises. D-Pod in particular is useful for reproducing percussion elements on the move.
