I wont lie, there is a lot here to play with when you get into iMovie on your iPhone 4. The app from Apple actually has a surprising amount of power so don’t expect me to be posting up fancy movies I did already. I’m just working through a couple fun movies I took at the park today with my new ‘4’. Once I got into the app I found that I can cut and splice, add music, opening screen and much more. After I played a bit, I started to wonder how long it took Apple to come up with this user interface. How did they get it right to make it possible to actually edit high resolution video on such a small screen. And… it isn’t a pain, fun actually. Watch here for my creations – promise it will be something you wont see at your local theater.
