    I'm sure it is, since iMovie for iPhone was shoehorned into the iPad.

    However, after using iMovie on my iPad 2 for several videos, I can tell you there is already noticeable lag even on the more powerful and ram filled iPad 2. My usage is with footage Imported from the iPhone 4, so there's no codec issue that's causing the general slowness; just a heavy task.

    According to the App Store, iMovie requires iOS 4.2.6 or later. So your iPad with 4.2.1 might not work.

    I read where someone installed imovie using ifile. How do you go about this? I have iMovie on my PC; is there a way to log into my PC through my iPad (via iFIle) and do it this way?

    Okay, still trying to get this to work. I tried using installous. I put my purchased copy of imovie on my ipad (via ssh) and then tried to install it using installous. I got back an error message of "not a valid IPA file".

    I am not sure what this means. I purchased my copy of imovie through iTunes.

    Anyone else ran into this?
