Apple Introduces iLife ‘08

Submitted by lalit on August 8, 2007 - 5:44am.

Apple introduced iLife ’08, featuring a major new version of iPhoto and a completely reinvented iMovie. iPhoto ’08 automatically organizes photo libraries into Events that let users more easily manage their growing photo collections, and iMovie ’08 introduces an entirely new way for users to quickly make movies and share them online. Both iPhoto and iMovie integrate seamlessly with the new .Mac Web Gallery, Apple’s new service for .Mac members to instantly create and host stunning online websites for their photos and videos. iLife ’08 also features iWeb ’08, with live web widgets such as Google Maps that let users create even more dynamic websites, and GarageBand ’08, with its new Magic GarageBand feature that makes it fun and easy for both musicians and non-musicians to create great sounding songs.

“Apple has taken iLife ’08 to a new level that is years ahead of anything available for the PC,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “We think iLife ’08 gives Mac users even more reasons to love their Macs, and PC users even more reasons to switch.”

iLife ’08 is now available for a suggested retail price of $79 (US) through the Apple Store (www.apple.com), Apple’s retail stores and Apple Authorized Resellers.

We will cover each of the iLife apps separately very soon.
