by

imovieApple today updated iMovie for iOS, its consumer-oriented video editing app designed for iPhones and iPads. iMovie version 2.2.3 makes it easier to start and share projects and it includes unspecified stability and performance improvements.

iMovie users are now able to start projects more quickly by selecting multiple photos and videos to insert into a project, and there are options for sharing to Facebook or Vimeo using the iOS share interface. Today’s update also brings support for Shared iPad, an educational feature that debuted as part of iOS 9.3.

With Shared iPad functionality, iMovie will now work for each student who accesses the app on a shared iPad.

What’s New
- Start projects quickly by selecting multiple photos and videos
- Share to Facebook and Vimeo using the standard iOS share interface
- Support for Shared iPad in iOS 9.3 or later
- Stability and performance improvements

Prior to today’s update, iMovie last saw an update in April of 2016, bringing minor improvements. The last major update to the software came in September of 2015 when iMovie 2.2 was introduced, bringing support for 4K video and 3D Touch.

iMovie for iOS can be downloaded from the App Store for $4.99. [Direct Link]

I guess we've gotten so used to Apple neglecting their software... (Still hurt by Aperture)

Yep, dropping Aperture hurts for photographers. :(

Though they're not neglecting all software; I think that's a little unfair to say. Logic Pro X has made leaps and bounds, to put it lightly; and in my opinion it is safety the most capable and feature-rich DAW on the market. Plus no iLok necessary and it's cheaper than the competition!

I couldn't contemplate using anything else.
