iMovie for iPhone reaches App Store

updated 09:25 am EDT, Thu June 24, 2010

Works only on iPhone 4

In parallel with the iPhone 4 launch, Apple has released iMovie for iPhone at the App Store. The app mimics the Mac software of the same name, allowing more complex video editing than possible with an iPhone's pre-installed tools. Because of the technical demands of the app, it can operate only on an iPhone 4.

Users can insert clips recorded inside or outside of the app, and optionally combine them with photos into a timeline. Five presentation themes are included -- Modern, Bright, Travel, Playful and News -- each of which has its own titles, transitions and default soundtracks. A person's own music can be inserted as wanted, and titles and graphics are updated automatically to reflect geotagging.

On export people can choose Medium, Large or HD quality, and whether to post a movie to MobileMe or YouTube, or else simply share it via e-mail or MMS. Syncing an iPhone allows video to be saved on a computer. iMovie costs $5, and is a 30.6MB download.
