With every new piece of Apple software comes a slew of firsts, as people look for ever more creative ways to use what Cupertino has bestowed upon us, and the release of the iPad 2 is no exception. Now, from Anna Elizabeth James and Majek Pictures comes word of the release of Goldilocks Episode 9, possibly the first all-iOS film created using entirely iOS devices, and Apple-produced software.
Wake up, sleepy heads. Did your alarm clocks go off at the right time? Did it make a difference if you updated to iOS 4.3? Did those of you with older iOS versions have any trouble with your clocks? Remember 6 months ago when all that was a very big deal? Here's to hoping Apple didn't miss anything, and just in case you did, we've got it all right here.
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.
Apple has a track record of making excellent guided tour videos that show not just the features of their new products, but also the experience of using them; they make you want to buy the thing even if you already own it, and they've just added tours for Garage Band and iMovie.
Chillingo may be looking to capitalize on all of the positive iPad buzz going around ever since the announcement of the iPad 2 last week. The publisher has announced that they've released two new iPad-exclusive games. The first game, Collision Effect is a sort of psychedelic action puzzle game. The other game is called Big Boss and tasks players with creating their own "big boss" to rampage through the level trouncing would-be heroes and gobbling up fair princesses.
On Tuesday, Roxio took the wraps off the latest versions of its disc-burning media toolkits, Toast 11 Titanium and Toast 11 Pro. It’s been over two years since the company released Toast 10 after a stream of annual updates, but Toast 11 looks like it may be worth the wait.
If you were one of the lucky AT&T customers who were able to get themselves an unlimited data plan for your iPad 1, good news! AT&T has confirmed to Engadget that they will allow said marvellous, near-mythical plans to carry over when you buy that brand-new 3G iPad 2 next week.
It has been well documented that the iPad is starting to come into its own as a power player within the corporate world. As businesses start to become more familiar with the "magical" device, and finding ways to integrate its use into everyday functions, one major Apple partner could be on the verge of implementing it onto their sales floors for associates to utilize.
If you purchased an iPad recently, Wednesday's announcement of the iPad 2 might have left you with some bitterness, jealousy, and buyer's remorse. Well, remorse no more, because Apple's confirmed that customers who purchased the iPad 1 after February 16th are entitled to a $100 refund.
