I just don’t get it. Since Apple bought the smart chaps who made CoverFlow, they’ve looked like throwing it into everything.
It appeared initially in iTunes, and then to much fanfare (and my bafflement), into the new Leopard Finder.
And now they release iLife ’08, which I thought would be a ripe candidate for the wonders of CoverFlow. I could actually see it being greatly useful in conjunction with the new Events in iPhoto, and even for browsing media in iMovie.
But incredibly, it’s not there. I cannot understand why they would ignore the technology they have, and the synergy between apps that it would help to create.
Sure, the skimming feature is great to get a quick idea of what pictures are inside an event, but I think it would be nice to have the ability to browse through those photos in a larger format.
Lucky for me, I have not the money to buy iLife ’08, so I won’t feel like I’m missing out on anything…
