First, watch the video. Done? Ok good. Now awe in amazement knowing the fact that that video was made entirely using iMovie on the iPad. It’s amazing what such a simple device can do. Just think, if a novice can crack a decent quality video edit, imagine what a pro can do with the the iPad. The possibilities are indeed limitless.
And if you consider that 48 hours of videos are uploaded on YouTube every minute, you can see how the iPad with the new iMovie makes a compelling case for consumers. Videos are the next frontier in user generated content and the new iPad, with its quad-core graphics performance, the 5MP camera with backlit sensor and enhanced optics, and the updated iMovie, is primed to make the most out of this surging trend. Imaging shooting a concert in 1080p, editing it right after and uploading it immediately when you’re done. Or imagine a roving reporter shooting, editing and uploading the content right from the field. Imagine the advantages and potential.
More and more people are uploading videos online and even more want to make their videos look good. Similarly, these same people don’t want the fuss, complication and cost normally associated with full editing suite.
Apple’s combination of easy to use yet immensely powerful software and the gratification of being able to create amazing user generated content so quickly and easily on an intuitive device like the iPad will be the biggest pulling factor for consumers to hit Apple stores come launch day.
In yesterday’s iPad announcement Tim Cook said “Don’t let anyone ever tell you that you can’t create on an iPad”, we can certainly agree with what he said. While we still think that there is still very little to get excited about with the new iPad, overall Apple has once again shown why it is unbeatable in the tablet market segment.
With the iPad and easy to use yet amazingly powerful apps like iMovie, Apple has created the perfect marriage of software, operating system, applications and cloud solutions that all work seamlessly together to give the user a simple yet immensely rewarding and satisfying experience.
And this, ladies and gentlemen is why the new iPad doesn’t need to be revolutionary, because as it is right now, it’s already perfect.
Smart Cover for the iPad 2, let’s not kid ourselves, it doesn’t do much than being just an overpriced screen protector. In terms of protection, the Smart Cover offers very little and when it comes to being a stand, although it gets the job done, there are other sturdier designs out there.
So what is the purpose of this Smart Cover then? It turns out with the right app installed, the Smart cover can actually make you smart.
Evernote Peek is an app that is designed to work with the Smart Cover. With Evernote Peek you pick a topic and the app will quiz you on the related topic. You peek under the Smart Cover to get the question and peek again for a clue. Open the whole cover to get the answer. You can create your own quizzes as well.
It’s an interesting concept, one that will definitely spur other developers to create app that use the Smart Cover as an interface. We’re assuming that this peek thing works with other similar cases as well as long as you can flip the cover in portions.
Still, it doesn’t change the fact that the Smart Cover does very little.
