Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

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.

Apple iMovie for iPhone 4

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.

There are only five themes: three cheesy ones and a couple that are more restrained.
