Workaround allows new iPhoto and iMovie to be installed on original iPad
If you’re still sporting the original iPad, you may be bummed to find out that you are unable to install the new iPhoto or iMovie from the device or installed them via iTunes. Yes, it doesn’t have a camera, so that may have something to do with it, but what if you just want to store your photo library through iPhoto or copy some videos to your device to edit in iMovie on the go? Well, good news. AppleInsider has reported a workaround that will let you install both iPhoto and iMovie, and both work just fine on the original 2010 iPad.

Even better, there is no jailbreak or shady business required to pull this off. All you need to do is download Apple’s free iPhone Configuration Utility. Normally this tool is used in enterprise environments to aid in installing apps and configuring policy profiles.

Once you purchase the app and connect your iPad to your computer, you can use the utility to manually copy iPhoto or iMovie from your iTunes’ Mobile Applications folder in the Configuration Utility library. Once the apps are listed in the library, simple click the Install button for each app and you’re on your way.

NIce workaround. Especially since you don't need to jailbreak.
