Apple has released a minor update to its iMovie app for iOS improving compatibility with the Apple Digital AV Adapter. iMovie 1.2.1 will now output audio to an HDTV when using the Digital AV Adapter. Videos from Marquee will also now play in full screen when output from the device via the Digital AV Adapter’s HDMI connection. Additional improvements and bug fixes include resolving issues with missing media in projects, grouping clips more accurately by date in the video browser, fixing issues with background music fading and a number of other small performance and reliability improvements. iMovie requires an iPhone 4, fourth-generation iPod touch or iPad 2 running iOS 4.2.6 or later and is available from the App Store for $5.

Apple needs to make it easier to import video into this app. After taking some video with a contour helmet cam I thought it would be cool to edit it within the Imovie app, it was a royal pain in the butt to get the video converted on there, impossible if you are on the go. I should be able to hook up the camera, or memory card and download it directly into Imovie and edit it from there, Apple should really work on correcting this in order to make it friendlier for the mass of people who own and use Ipads for more than just reading email and surfing the internet.
