iMovie on original iPad
Apple have just released an update to the iOS version of iMovie to support the iPad 2, but what about the original iPad? Well, currently you can't install iMovie on an original iPad using iTunes directly, but iMovie will run on your previous generation device as long as it's running iOS 4.3. Hit the break for a quick two-minute guide to getting iMovie onto your original iPad without a jailbreak.

Install iMovie on iPad

To get iMovie onto the original iPad you're going to need the iPhone configuration utility, which is available for Mac OS X and Windows. Once that's installed, fire up the program and follow this step-by-step guide
  • Click on 'Applications' in the left hand menu under 'LIBRARY'
  • Click the 'Add' application button in the top left hand corner
  • Find the updated iMovie IPA file (the one downloaded or updated from iTunes), which should be located in your 'Mobile Applications' folder within your 'iTunes' folder (normally located in your 'Home' directory).
  • Select your iPad from 'DEVICES'
  • Select the 'Applications' tab
  • Scroll down to 'iMovie'
  • Hit the 'Install' button (as shown in the image above).
The install process will take a couple of seconds, then you can disconnect your iPad and have a play with Apple's latest movie-magic app.
