Last week was all about the iPad 2. But the release of the latest iPad wasn’t the only trick Apple had up its sleeve. Additionally, the company rolled out an updated version of iMovie for iOS devices as well as a completely new app for iPads, GarageBand. I start by discussing some of the points from my GarageBand for iPad review. Jeff Carlson then joins me to talk about his review of iMovie for iOS devices.

Using an external music keyboard and GarageBand for iPad, I put together this short acoustic guitar piece. The guitar accompaniment comes from tapping chords with my left hand with the guitar in Autoplay mode. I soloed over those chords with my right hand playing the keyboard.
