A post chockful of iLife ’09 and Work ’09 reviews and tips

It has been almost a month since the release of iLife ’09 and a little more than that for iWork ’09. There had been a lot of reviews, almost all of them positive, about Apple’s latest iteration of their office and multimedia suite. There also have been a fair number of useful tips posted for these new apps.

This post is about a month’s worth of iLife ’09 and iWork ’09 reviews and tips. Most of the tips come from Macworld, a very good resource for the latest news, reviews and everything else Mac.

One more thing: posting iLife ’09 or iWork ’09 reviews may seem like I’m preaching to the choir. But if you are planning to purchase iLife ’09, iWork ’09 or both, it’s better to know the strengths and weaknesses of the apps that you’re getting from these suites.

One last thing: PowerPC Mac owners should know ahead of time that one feature in GarageBand may not work for them. Ars Technica reported that one of the system requirements for GarageBand’s Learn to Play is “an Intel-based Mac with a dual-core processor or better”.
