iMovie for iPhone 4
Video editing on the Judas phone
Review Let's get one thing straight: this is not a port of Apple iMovie from the Mac OS to the iPhone OS. Rather, think of the iMovie iPhone app is a massively cut-down version with a handful of editing functions and even fewer options.
Getting started in Apple's iMovie for iPhone 4: Pick a theme from a generous choice of er... five.
Also be warned that it has been designed exclusively for the iPhone 4. Yes, boo-hoo for those 3GS owners out there: your phone is not powerful enough. Annoyed? After the piss-taking I have had to endure from all and sundry over my signal-fade, I really couldn't give a monkey's.
Right, now that I've swept away any unrealistic expectations, you might just be prepared to give this smart little app a fair hearing. Alas, it’s not free with the handset, but is a £2.99 download from App Store and is designed to take advantage of the iPhone 4’s 720p video recording capability.
Tap the Insert Media button to bring your own video, photos and music into the project
When you first create a new project in iMovie, it insists you to choose a 'theme'. All this does is make a bunch of transition, titling and music presets available to the project, which you can choose to ignore, and you can always change your mind later. There are only five themes: three cheesy ones and a couple that are more restrained.
Can we drop the Judas/Jesus phone gag, please? It was funny once.

I lolled. Now excuse me while I take this call.
I suspect that El Reg and the rest of us will give it a rest when......
........Apple cut out the "born again" "happy clappy" marketing that most of the rest of us find crucifyingly embarassing and in fact gave rise to the appellation "jesusphone" and when they admit that they did not get it quiiiiiiiiiiiiite right with Judasphone 4. In other words when Apple stop bloody well begging for it we might consider stopping it .
"Judas/Jesus phone" is so annoying and tired now, and I wish El Reg would give it a rest.
And Dogged, why are you so mean?
Ha! The most interesting thing about this article is..
That you share the same b*stard commute as me...
