iMovie and GarageBand Released for iPad Users

Anticipation is high as iMovie and GarageBand to hit the App Store for the upcoming iPad 2, set to launch later this week.

While iMovie is essentially an update to its iPhone version and won’t function on the first-generation iPad, GarageBand is compatible with both the original and the new iPad.

Each app is priced at $4.99, though it’s worth noting that GarageBand’s download size is substantial at 370 MB, which might require some to clear space on their devices.

GarageBand is particularly enticing for its array of in-app instruments, making it an essential purchase for those with either version of the iPad.
