Apple released iMovie 1.2 this week, adding support for the iPad 2. The original iPad isn’t officially supported, since it doesn’t have video cameras. But since when did you need a camera to edit video. The folks at German site fscklog have figured out how to install iMovie on the original iPad. You don’t even need to jailbreak the tablet.
You will need to make sure your iPad is running iOS 4.3. You’ll also need to download the latest version of iMovie for $4.99 from iTunes on your Windows or Mac computer. The third thing you’ll need to use the iPhone configuration utility for OS X or Windows, which you can use to manually install the app to your iPad.
