Apple iMovie 1.2
iOS App of the Week I’ve been having a lot of fun playing with Apple's new GarageBand app, but it’s the updated iMovie that will really benefit from the new camera and improved graphics power of the iPad 2.
You can still run iMovie 1.2 on an iPhone or iPod Touch and gain minor improvements such as the new project themes and sound effects. It’s also possible – unofficially, though – to install iMovie on the original iPad.
Apple's iMovie: video editing on the iPad
Apple has unsuprisingly tried to prevent this in order to encourage fondleslab fans to upgrade to the iPad 2. The easiest method for getting iMovie 1.2 to run on the 'old' tablet I’ve found is at AppAdvice.
The downside: you can't sync your iPad with iTunes until you ditch iMovie.
iPad 2 owners - when Apple ships the thing over here - will not be so encumbered, though they may not be impressed with the footage taken using the new tablet's weak cameras. Other footage can be imported through iTunes and - potentially - the iPad Camera Connection Kit's USB and SD adaptors. Apple hasn't yet said what addition formats beyond H.264 are supported.
Tap to call up track options
It’s much easier to edit video projects on the iPad than it is on the iPhone simply because you’ve got more room to view and trim clips. However, iMovie on the iPad also sprouts some major new features that aren’t available when the app is running on the smaller screen of the iPhone.

Ummmm...how have they crippled last year's model? "New software won't install on older machine" - hardly a revelation in the IT industry.
If Apple were...
...then maybe Ford, GM and Chrysler wouldn't be in the shit their in.
More importantly, you need to put your tin foil hat away, and quit with the Apple-based conspiracy theories. You don't like Apple. We get it. Do you really have to come up with some spurious comment on every single sodding Apple story?
Crawl back under your /. rock.
Mines still working fine.
My ford Cortina isn't though so maybe you're right Apple could teach the world a few tricks in reliability.
last years machines
The 3GS is near 2 years old. It still got the 4.3 update... the 3G, well in excess of 2 years old, got multiple updates in the latter half of 2010. Show me ANY phone from ANY other manufacturer that after 2 years gets updates. show me any android that got an update after just 14 months for that matter.
Go crawl back under your rock troll. NO other phone manufacturer has apples record for back hardware support with new features. they're the shining example of how it shoudl be done thus far.
We get it, you have a problem with logic but do you have to be so brazen about your stupidity.
