Apple’s iLife applications. Image credit: Apple
Apple’s iLife suite is a set of applications that is bundled for free with every new Mac. GarageBand, iPhoto, iMovie, iWeb and iDVD are all currently included in iLife.
Fully featured, easy-to-use, sophisticated pieces of software, these applications have helped attract new customers to the Mac platform. This contrasts with the crippled “trial” versions of software that often come pre-installed on Windows PCs. (Who really wants pre-installed software that requires you spend extra cash to access all of its features?)
