"Don't ever let anyone tell you that you can't create on an iPad" said Apple vice president of worldwide marketing Phil Schiller at the iPad press conference in San Francisco. iPhoto has never appeared on the iPad as a dedicated application, but adding it shows Apple's commitment to making its mobile devices the only camera you'll need.
