CNet’s Josh Lowensohn gives Apple’s new iLife ‘11 4 1/2 starts. That’s too many stars.
This year’s version adds a handful of advanced features to iPhoto, iMovie, and GarageBand without making them more difficult to use. It’s a shame iDVD and iWeb did not receive updates with this year’s version, but with a slightly lower price for upgraders than in years past, iLife ‘11 still represents a good value to consumers looking for a set of tools for editing and sharing media.
Only the lower price and iMovie make it a worthy upgrade. iPhoto is dumbed down. iWeb and iDVD are the same. Garageband isn’t used by the masses. iMovie is great. Finally.
