iMovie, GarageBand on iPad iOS 5.1
24 hours ago, we learned about the new iPad, which I talked about yesterday. Another major update was to the iLife series. iPhoto, iMovie and Garage Band came to iOS 5.1. So I downloaded them. I have to say, I am very impressed.
If you’ve ever used these programs before on a Mac, not much has changed. You record, drag, drop and make adjustments just like you would in the desktop version. iMovie gives you a choice to make your own movie, or create a trailer from the templates given. Simply record 1-2 second videos for each section, and enter in the text you want.
Even for the iPad2, this program works smoothly. Granted, you are not recording in 1080p. Still, the only limitation seems to be the amount of space on your tablet.
iMovie is $4.99 in the App store. Of course, check out the video for the trailer of iPad365.
This program is more fun to use instead of record from. Of course, you can record music, or podcasts easily. But just the fact you can play multiple instruments and they don’t sound like you are playing a trash can really impresses me.
Garage band is also the same from the Mac. It might even be easier to manipulate the MIDI file, especially if you use a stylus.
Garage Band is also $4.99.
