Apple to Offer iOS 7 GarageBand as Freemium Model

Apple’s applications, especially the iLife and iWork ones, could be getting a major update soon. The real transformation will be in the adoption of a freemium model for GarageBand. While at present it is worth about $5, it will be available free of cost in the days to come. However, GarageBand instruments and sound bites will be accessible on the basis of an in-app purchase scheme. 

Besides this, iPhoto will be gaining album printing alternatives. This is a smart move away from Apple’s passé Cards application. Meanwhile, iMovie will feature a theatrical form that will act like a mobile theater. Apart from the beautiful modes and brand new facilities/prices, Apple is revamping all of its icons to tie in with the heart’s desires. 

Apple is literally offering music makers everywhere the opportunity of a lifetime with its new apps. With GarageBand taking the free road, things are all set for a widening of the spectrum for Apple. But there is more here than meets the eye. 

Apple may have made GarageBand a no-cost enterprise, yet its additional instruments and musical effects still come at a reasonable price. While, now anyone can make it as a musician with the right amount of talent and chutzpah, the price still has to be paid for the full set of facilities. The Pages, Numbers and Keynotes apps too are all part of the list of modes displayed by Apple. 

But MacRumors now reports that "Apple has reverted the changes to the page, removing the new text and icons."

There are three things that can eat up all of the free space on your iOS devices, and those are music, photos and videos. These are also the three things that many seem to collect, hoard and like to keep on their devices for extended periods of time. While getting photos music and videos on to a device seems easy enough, getting it off of one iOS device and onto another iOS device can be a bit more challenging. The easiest way is to perfor ...
