As you use Apple’s iLife programs, you begin to suspect that you can do anything. The programs’ simple interfaces and tight integration let you ignore pesky concerns about talent, so you can set your inner director, photographer, or DJ free. And with the release of iLife ’04, you can also get in touch with your inner musician — thanks to a music-recording studio called GarageBand.
But to get the updated versions of iPhoto, iMovie, and iDVD, and the new GarageBand, you’ll need to shell out $49 for the suite. (iLife ’04 is free with new Macs.)
Because not everyone uses iLife for the same reasons, we’ve put together separate reviews of each new iLife application. (For our take on the whole package, see ”
Putting a Price on iLife.”)
How Does It Stack Up?
