iMovie for iOS has been around since the release of the iPhone 4, but when Apple announced it would be coming to the iPad, tablet users everywhere began drooling. With yesterday's iMovie update, Apple stepped up their game with more flexible iOS video editing, and a better user interface.
Interestingly enough, some folks with a sharp eye at 9to5 Mac found a way to sneak iMovie (which is supposedly only for the iPad 2, iPhone 4, and iPod touch 4th generation) on to the original iPad. Not only does this work, but it's literally like a mobile movie making studio, giving first-generation iPad adopters a way to edit their videos on the go without having to upgrade.

It was the week the iPad 2 ate every other tablet's lunch including some not even launched yet.

When I was a kid, I really wished I had one of those nifty voice changer boxes to prank call the pizza place with. Now, I've got something better, and way more convincing. iMovie 11's voice changing feature is what we've been waiting for a long time, and it's sure to add some flair to your home movies. All you need to get started is a video with some audio in it.
Today, Apple released software updates for both iMovie and iDVD to improve the overall quality and stability of the two applications.

You can update your system from the Software Update option in your menu bar or from Apple's official site.
