The iTrack Solo from Focusrite has to be one of the most useful interfaces we have come across. It has simple in/outs based on the Scarlett 2i2 with Halo indicators and large volume dials.
The Focusrite iTrack Solo can be used for both mobile iOS devices with a lightning port and both PC and MAC. This makes it ideal for tracking ideas out and about and then using the same setup to record onto a laptop or home computer.
Here's what Focusrite say about the iTrack Solo with Lightning
