Minor updates fix bugs, improve stability
Earlier today, Apple has pushed out a minor update to several of its own iOS apps, ranging from the occasion-oriented Cards (which enables users to send real-world letterpress greeting cards to loved ones) to its range of iLife applications for iOS along with a small improvement to iTunes U, the education-oriented store that features courses and presentations from universities and other institutions. All of the upgrades improve stability and correct small issues.
The iOS version of iPhoto has received its first update since its debut in March. Version 1.0.1 now lets users more easily find the URL of a published iCloud Journal with a new Copy Link button, and corrects an issue that could cause duplicate photos to appear in the Photos view.
Garageband for iOS v1.2.1 fixes an issue that could cause crashing or missing songs when sharing to iCloud, resolves an error when logging into SoundCloud by way of a Facebook account, and also corrects some minor performance issues. The iOS version of iMovie, now up to v1.3.1, adds a Help file when editing projects on an iPad and fixes an issue where an incorrect frame may have been shown after splitting a clip.
In addition the iLife for iOS apps, the company also updated its postcard program Cards to version 1.1.2. The update fixes an issue regarding making edits to an address on the envelope, and improves accuracy of envelope address verification. The new version also adds new letterpress cards for Mother's Day, new Get Well card designs, and additional cards and options for birthdays, thank you and other types of cards.
Finally, the iTunes U app for iPhone and iPad was updated to version 1.1.1, which addresses only one problem. It corrects an issue that would cause the app to unexpectedly quit if it had been launched via another application. All updates will appear on the "updates" section of the iTunes Store app on iOS devices.
