Apple has taken a lot of time over the Photos app on the iPad.We know this because it’s a completely different app to the one that appears on the iPhone, even though they both share the same operating system.
One of the things that sets this new Photos app apart is its ability to show incredible picture slideshows. A large part of this is, of course, down to the larger screen with greater resolution, but another is the way the interface is so easy to use and set up, so you’ll really enjoy creating and watching them with friends. One of the fantastic benefits of the processing power tucked away in the iPad is the ability to do the same things you can do on a desktop computer, and creating a slideshow is definitely one of these. Once you’ve learned how to create a slideshow we’re confident you’ll be so impressed that you’ll be making them all the time. The real shame is that, unlike a real Mac using iPhoto, you can’t save the results and share them with others; you can merely marvel at each individual slideshow as it plays out. Maybe we’ll see a change to this in an update to the iPhone OS. For now, though, just enjoy the brilliance of these slideshows, sit back, turn the music up and make sure all your friends and family can see how cool the iPad really is.
