Security for virtualized datacentres

Movies can be synced using USB from your iPhone's Camera Roll to your computer, just as you would with other videos and photos. Just remember that if you try to 'share' your movie wirelessly from your iPhone to e-mail, MMS, YouTube or MobileMe, the iPhone OS will scale it down to 568 x 320 pixels first.

While fairly unproblematic, iMovie, alas, is not intuitive. Apple's failure to provide a user guide, is supposedly on the basis that its apps are intuitive. However, if you need convincing of the general bafflement among early iMovie buyers, read the Customer Reviews for it on the iTunes App Store.

Verdict

Overall, iMovie for the iPhone 4 is pretty basic and doesn't really do that much. However, it makes the process of compiling multiple video clips taken with your iPhone into movies – with transition effects, titles and an auto-duck/fade background music track – quite easy, and fun too. That's well worth £2.99, as far as I'm concerned: I've spent more on a good cup of coffee. ®
