iPhoto for iOS arrives on the App Store

The company has rolled out iPhoto for iOS, which joins mobile versions of GarageBand and iMovie in the App Store

Apple's mobile suite of iLife apps is now complete. The company has rolled out iPhoto for iOS, which joins mobile versions of GarageBand and iMovie in the App Store.

The $US5 app arrives on the App Store on Thursday (AEST). While Apple executives demonstrated the mobile image editor to show off the improved display on the latest iPad, iPhoto is a universal iOS app - like GarageBand and iMovie, it will run on the iPhone and iPod touch as well as Apple's tablet.

During Wednesday's press event, Apple senior vice-president of worldwide product marketing Phil Schiller pitched iPhoto as the next step after the Camera and Photos apps that come included with the iPad. While those offerings let you capture and view photos, respectively, the mobile version of iPhoto offers more browsing and editing capabilities.

Specifically, iPhoto for iOS promises multi-touch image editing, effects that can be applied with brushes, and sharing capabilities. A Photo Beaming feature will allow iPhoto users to send high-resolution photos between devices, while Photo Journals provides another avenue for sharing images with friends.

In addition to releasing iPhoto for iPad, Apple also updated GarageBand and iMovie for iOS at its iPad launch.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
