  • Lights, Camera... iPhone! iMovie Comes to iPhone 4

    It may not be long before the hottest entries to the Sundance Film Festival come from iPhone users playing with the mobile version of iMovie. Today at WWDC, Steve Jobs rolled out a forthcoming iPhone 4 edition of the popular video-editing suite. "Assuming we approve it," said Jobs to a more-than receptive audience for that joke, the app will run $4.99 and should turn up shortly in the App Store.

    Serving up an awesome demonstration, Randy Ubillos - the dev credited with the '08 redesign of iMovie - said “iMovie is one of the most exciting things I’ve ever worked on,” adding the mobile app is remarkably similar to its computer counterpart. Based on the demo, iPhone users can create projects that include themes, transitions, titles, music, photos, and even geolocation maps!

    Ubillos also dished on how the app makes it possible to create and edit multiple projects. You can use prerecorded or live video recorded directly into the timeline. It works just as well in landscape or portrait mode. Making matters even simpler, you can access the clips quickly and efficiently in the beloved bin we all know so well. Drag and drop as necessary into the timeline and you're ready to win your first Oscar... or at least upload something random directly to YouTube, Mobile Me, or send over e-mail.

    One of the most impressive new offerings introduced during Steve Jobs' WWDC keynote, it's a safe bet that the iMovie app for iPhone 4 will dominate the App Store upon arrival.

      This is pretty exciting. I've been using ReelDirector for a while and its decent for editing but still needs polishing. iMovie is going to just destroy the competition and were gonna start to have some pretty cool youtube videos coming im sure. Not to mention probably an iPhone "Sundance" film festival probably coming up. lol...

      P.S. guys... It's iPhone 4, not iPhone HD.

      It's an App Store app that will work on iOS 4.0. What's iPhone HD?

      It's iPhone 4!!

      Seems odd but not a bad idea for when you have vids to toss up on things real quick.

      i think this is cool, but i would be better on the ipad. but for it to work, the ipad would need a camera or a usb port. i hope they add at least one of those in the next ipad. i think that editing movies with a touch screen is a good idea, but the iphone is just to small of a screen to make this work...

      personally I don't think iMovie for the iPhone was ever intended to make ground breaking Peter Jackson style movies. I think its just a fun, simply way to quickly cut and edit together a quick movie and share with friends online etc.

      Either way, I'll be buying it and giving it a go

      Now this is something I've been waiting a long time for! Super excited for it's release.

      It'll also be great to see if an iPad version eventually pops up...
