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.

With the announcement of a sleeker, sexier new aluminum bodied MacBook Air, you might have forgotten about Apple's other slim tablet device, the iPad. Apparently, the device has made quite the stride in the e-books and video sphere, as the iPad is widely used to consume both those forms of media.
