How to create a slideshow on iPad with music and transitions

Windows Movie Maker is a free video maker which works on Windows provided by Microsoft.  However, what if you want to use it on your iOS devices, like iPad/ iPhone / iPod? I am sorry to say that this free movie maker does not support iOS. So you have to use other alternative movie makers. Here, I will introduce Photo Slideshow Director HD — a photo movie maker for iDevices.
