We’ve been talking a lot lately about the perks and perils of Microsoft Office, especially the program you begrudgingly used to write your college papers: Word. In what appears to be an unrelated move, Apple just made a whole host of productivity apps free. Get excited for Pages! (Borat voice: “Not!”)
If you’ve got an iOS or OS X device in your possession, then you can also get iMovie, Apple’s user-friendly video editor that’s simple enough for beginners to understand while offering a handful of features to tempt more professional users, too. Whether you’ve spent years working with iMovie or have yet to try out the…
Along with the flurry of hardware updates, Apple announced substantial upgrades to iLife and iWork. Features run the gamut from seamless integration with iOS to powerful automation tricks like a robotic drummer. And like OS X Mavericks, everything is available immediately, for free.
To take advantage of its fancy new retina display, higher res camera, and boosted processor, the iWork and iLife apps for iOS have all been updated today. And since that new display will make working with photos a treat, Apple also introduced an iOS version of iPhoto.

I've just barely dabbled with iMovie '11, but I'm already comfortable saying this: The new "Trailers" templates are going to be this year's latest meme fodder.
At last, there's a new version of iLife. It's got all new, enhanced versions of the major apps. They're pretty fancy looking, and they've got a whole bag of new tricks, like automagic movie trailers.
Apple's iMovie iPhone app has received an update in honor of iOS 4.1 being released. It's now compatible with the new iPod Touch, allows you to split video clips, and more:
I just shot and edited an HD movie on a smartphone in under 5 minutes. Perspective: my digital camera computer from 10 years ago couldn't have done this. And here, with titles, transitions, themes and soundtracks, for $5.
