Not all that satisfied with the soft set of video editing tools available on your iPhone 4? Well, you’ll soon be able to experience the full arsenal of features that will keep you productive on the go with your mobile iOS driven device.

Today at Apple’s unveiling event for the iPad 2 we witnessed many impressive things going on with the upcoming iPad 2, however, movie editing buffs got a special sneak peek at the upcoming iMovie app for iOS. This isn’t a super light version of the popular movie editing software, but instead, it boasts a handful of advanced features found with its Mac version. Specifically, it’ll enable users to make their own personalized movies by mixing various videos shot by their devices and edit them together to make one long masterpiece.

The interface itself implements multi-touch gestures and you’ll also have some pre-loaded themes that quickly turns any ordinary looking video shot by you into something that looks as if it were edited by a Hollywood professional. Naturally, you can also throw in various transition effects, titles, or add an accompanying soundtrack directly into the time line. And of course, when you’re completely done with your cut, you can share it with YouTube, Facebook, Vimeo, or CNN iReport.

It won’t be long now before it arrives since it’ll be available starting on March 11th to coincide with the iPad 2’s release. And the best part of it all, you’ll only need to dish out $4.99 for this app, however, it’s only compatible with the iPad 2, iPhone 4, and fourth generation iPod touch.

This is truly awesome. It's apps like this that makes the ipad ahead of the game. Garage band is pretty awesome as well.

Nice...can't even use this app on my original IPad. First, they give you a reason to upgrade to the new hardware. Next, they give you a reason for noone else to buy your slightly used 11 month old original IPad. Sell your crap now while you still can!!
