| Product News

Apple used its Tuesday morning media event to show off more than just OS X Mavericks and new MacBook Pro models. The company also introduced brand new versions of iPhoto, iMovie, and GarageBand for the Mac, iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, all of which offer tighter iCloud integration.

The new version of iPhoto includes an updated interface, faster photo browsing, and the ability to buy new photo books on the iPad.

The new iMovie offers improved video browsing and sharing features, picture-in-picture on iOS devices, new effects, better library browsing, and more.

GarageBand bumps track support from 8 up to 16 on iOS devices, and 32 tracks on 64-bit devices, and a new virtual drummer that plays along with your songs.

All of the iLife apps are free when buying a new Mac or iOS device, and they'll be available today.

I really hope they improved iMovie. When it first came out, it was easy to use and intuitive. Then it became unintuitive and hard to use.


It’s too bad that iPhoto wasn’t given an “updated interface” on the Mac.  In fact, not much has changed at all.  A switch from Google Maps to Apple Maps is kind of a wash and I don’t see any other significant changes.  It’s still called iPhoto ‘11 so even Apple agrees it’s basically still the same release as the one from late 2010.
