  • Apple Updates Slew of Official Apps and Releases Cards and iTunes Movie Trailers Apps


    The release of iOS 5, iCloud, and Mac OS X 10.7.2 weren’t the only things that Apple rolled out today. Apple’s built-in iPhone and iPad applications such as the iWork suite, iMovie, Remote, and Find my iPhone were also reported to receive updates. Along with all these updates, Apple also released Trailers, an iTunes movie trailers application along with the release of Cards, the card ordering app and service.

    Some of Apple’s official built-in apps such as iMovie, Remote, and Find My iPhone have been updated with a slew of new features.

The update is 15.4 MB and is a free download for those of you who may not already have it. The Find My iPhone app has also been updated recently with new features for iCloud users, including the ability to find a Mac and an option to request an email when an offline device comes online and is located. The update is 5.4 MB and is totally free as well.



    The whole iWork suite including Pages, Keynote, and Numbers are updated and ready to go on the App Store too.

The change logs were released for each of them and they can be found below:

    Apple also released two new universal applications called Cards (previously announced at the “Let’s Talk iPhone” media event) and iTunes Movie Trailers. Just as a heads up, both require iOS 5 – I assume this shouldn’t matter to many as there is no reason to not be on iOS 5 unless you are waiting to preserve your baseband and require an unlock. Going back to iTunes Movie Trailers, this app gives users access to trailers from Apple’s website, making them viewable in a native application on both the iPhone and the iPad. According to Apple, features for the app include the following:

    • Access hundreds of movie trailers, clips, behind-the-scenes featurettes, and images, available in HD or SD.
    • Explore an interactive, year-long release calendar that helps you plan when you'll be going to the theaters.
    • Save favorite movies and theaters for immediate access anytime.
    • Search what's playing at your local theaters and purchase tickets directly from your iPad or iPhone.
    • Save images to your iPad photo gallery, to use as iPad or desktop wallpapers or send to your friends.
    • Browse top charts to view the most downloaded trailers, box office rankings, and top movies on iTunes to buy or rent.
    • Enjoy your favorite movie trailers on your TV with AirPlay and Apple TV.
    • Email or tweet trailer recommendations to your friends.
    • Use iCloud to push your favorite theaters and movie trailers to all of your iOS devices.


    Apple’s Cards application is also available. This service lets users create and send custom-made greeting cards via the U.S Postal Service. The official description for the service mentions the following:

    The new Cards app from Apple lets you create and mail beautifully crafted cards personalized with your own text and photos — right from your iPhone or iPod touch. Take a quick snapshot and with a few taps and swipes, an elegant letterpress card is on its way to any address in the world. Each card is just $2.99 when sent within the U.S. and $4.99 when sent to or from anywhere else. And that includes postage.
    The service offers custom letterpress cards with digital text and photos. Each card is made from 100 percent cotton paper and is imprinted with a debossed design. There will be a total of 21 designs available for six different occasions including: Thank You, Holiday, New Baby, Birthday, Love, and Travel. Users will be given the option to customize the placeholder text for any occasion, as well as add a photo to the card or just send one with text. Furthermore, location integration is also included in travel designs and photos with GPS data can show the name of the place where the photo was taken. The application also allows users to select an address from their Contacts list to easily personalize it, and orders can be placed with an Apple ID and password. If it’s being mailed within the US, the card will include Apple’s specially designed postage. The service even comes with delivery notification and a history of cards made. The cards can be resent to another recipient as well, making it easy to send out a number of Thank You cards or holiday cards for example.

    Wednesday was a big day for Apple fans from all over. How many of you updated and had a chance to try iOS 5, iCloud, Mac OS X 10.7.2, iWorks, iMovie, Remote, Find My iPhone, iTunes Movie Trailers, and Cards? Sound like there will be a lot of things on my to-do list in the upcoming days, not to mention the arrival of the iPhone 4S as well.

      They probably didn't make one for the iPad because of two reasons. First not many people take family photos or vacation photos with a iPad. Secondly the camera on the iPad totally sucks! Just my opinion.

      The camera in the front sucks but the back takes very decent pictures.
