We’ll take a look at three applications—iMovie, iPhoto, and GarageBand—that recently saw updates for both iOS and OS X versions during Apple’s October 23 iPad event.

I’m joined by a trio of Macworld editors who spent some quality time with Apple’s revamped iLife offerings. Join me on this Macworld Podcast episode as I talk to Serenity Caldwell, Jackie Dove, and Christopher Breen about iMovie, iPhoto, and GarageBand, respectively.
