Following up on the success of the series tracking app TeeVee, developer CrazyApps has released a new piece of software aimed at moviegoers. The app, appropriately titled MooVee, allows you to keep track of movies you’ve seen and what you want to see.
The app’s UI is similar in some aspects to TeeVee, but most of it has been designed from scratch to better accommodate the ways movies and TV differ. For example, in the image above you can see the watchlist view, which resembles the main list view in TeeVee. However, other features are unique to MooVee.
On the watchlist view, you can tap a movie to see more information about it, but you can also swipe it to bring up a bunch of other useful controls, such as the option to mark it as watched or add it to your favorites. A shuffle button at the top of the screen picks a random movie from the list for those times when you’re just not sure what to watch.
There are several ways to add movies to your watchlist. A “browse” view accessible from the “hamburger menu” presents you with a list of movies that are currently playing, coming soon, and popular among viewers. You can also explore a collection of individual genres to find something you might enjoy.
This view and several others are powered by the third-party community-managed database TMDB, and unfortunately it seems to be returning some bizarre results. A “browse” section supposedly dedicated to TV movies listed only blockbusters, while the comedy section inexplicably included documentaries on Kurt Cobain and Edward Snowden at the top of the list. Hopefully the database providing this information will receive some corrections.
Comical genre misfires aside, the rest of the data provided is actually pretty complete. Cast listings are accurate (although they sometimes include multiple entries for the same person if they filled multiple roles, such as actor and producer), and release dates are all correct. Each movie’s page contains a description; a trailer; budget and revenue figures; writer and director credits; viewer ratings and the option to rate it yourself; and even a link to buy the movie, related books, or soundtrack on iTunes.
A gallery provides some stills and marketing images for each film, and a “related” tab gives you some solid recommendations for similar titles. Viewers interested in Jurassic World will be presented other Dinosaur flicks, John Wick fans will be suggested The Equalizer, and so on.
A “discover” section similar to the “browse” view suggests even more movies you might be interested in. These selections appear to be based not on any specific movie, but on your entire watchlist.
From the discover page you can also access the “surprise” feature. Tapping the gift icon in the corner of the screen will present you with a single out-of-context quote from a movie the app thinks you’ll like. If you’re interested in the quote, you can tap a button at the bottom of the screen to be taken to the associated movie for more information and to add it to your watchlist.
Like TeeVee, MooVee can notify you when movies on your watchlist are about to open. You can pick a time early in the day to get your reminder so that you’ve got time to plan and buy your tickets. Future updates will also add a Today view widget for Notification Center and support for Trakt syncing.
MooVee takes everything that works so well in TeeVee, applies it to a new type of media, and then goes the extra mile in making sure that you have all the information you need to find movies that you’ll enjoy. It’s a great piece of software overall, though it does suffer from some wonky database results.
I’d recommend giving it a try if you’re looking for something to keep track of a growing list of movies you haven’t had a chance to see yet. You can get it on the App Store today for $1.99.

Dual-Cable DisplaysDell's dual-cable 5K display requires more bandwidth than is currently supported over a current single DisplayPort cable, so it uses a dual-cable solution that takes up two Thunderbolt ports on a Mac. The availability of Intel's Skylake platform with DisplayPort 1.3 support later this year will enable Apple to update Macs with support for external 5K displays that function over a single cable, at which point the company could theoretically release a 5K Thunderbolt Display.
Some displays with resolutions higher than 4K require two DisplayPort cables to connect the display at full resolution. With OS X Yosemite v10.10.3 or later, the Dell UP2715K 27-inch 5K display is supported on the following Mac computers:
Mac Pro (Late 2013)
iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, Late 2014 and later)
MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015) with AMD Radeon R9 M370X
Apple initially listed the high-end 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro with AMD Radeon graphics as capable of supporting an ultra-wide display with up to 5,120-by-2,160 resolution at 60Hz, but has since updated the notebook's technical specifications to reflect its ability to drive a single external display at up to 5,120-by-2,880 resolution.

Apple’s new 15-inch MacBook Pro is the first of Apple’s notebooks to officially support single-stream 4K displays at a full resolution of 4096×2160 at 60Hz. The new MacBook Pro is also the first to support 5K displays.
Apple confirmed the support today in an updated support document detailing official support for 4K and 5K displays on Macs.
The support for higher resolutions — previous MacBooks only support 4K at a maximum resolution of 3840×2160 at 60Hz — appears to be related to the switch to AMD graphics in the new machine. Apple’s new 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro (mid-2015) comes with AMD Radeon R9 M370X that the company said are up to 80% faster than previous generations. Apple’s 13-inch Retina MacBook Pros released earlier in the year come with Intel Iris Graphics 6100.
The new 15-inch MacBook is also the first to support 5K displays using a dual-cable DisplayPort setup. Apple first introduced official support for 5K displays back in April alongside its OS X 10.10.3 update, but at the time only listed Mac Pro (Late 2013) and iMacs as supported. So far the only 5K display officially supported by Apple with these machines is Dell’s new UP2715K 27-inch 5K display.

The supply chain source claimed to confirm that previous rumors regarding Force Touch's exclusivity on the iPhone 6s Plus were in fact true, for a time, before Apple scrapped the plan and decided to move forward with installing the haptic feedback technology on both 6s models this year. Taiwanese manufacturing and R&D company TPK is still reportedly taking on the task of providing Force Touch sensors for the new iPhones.
Force Touch has been rumored as a standout feature on the new iPhone models a few times throughout the first half of 2015, leading into the first public interaction with the technology first when the new 12-inch Retina MacBook launched and then when the Apple Watch began shipping late in April.
Just this week, a new report suggested that iOS 9 was created "to be Force Touch-ready," with Apple building the tools to create developer interest in using the technology within their apps. Given that the haptic feedback interaction allows a new form of communication with Apple's devices, the introduction of Force Touch into the iPhone ecosystem could bring about a big overhaul of iOS if it in fact turns out to be the expected middle-of-the-road "s" upgrade this year.
Rumors about the new iPhones have begun piling up as the year moves forward, with most agreeing the device will have an upgraded 12-megapixel camera, A9 processor with 2GB of RAM, a possible new color option in Rose Gold, but with a similar form factor to the current iPhone 6. KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo also predicts that Apple will defy tradition and unveil the new iPhone in August with a planned September launch date.

"The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York said a lower court judge did not abuse her discretion in rejecting Apple's bid to disqualify Michael Bromwich as monitor, even though some of the company's allegations against him 'give pause.'"In July 2013, Apple lost a significant e-book antitrust case that found the company to have colluded with publishers to raise the price of e-books. As a result, Apple was forced to submit to an external antitrust compliance monitor and $450 million fine as part of a settlement with several class action lawyers and state district attorneys. Last December, the lawsuit entered appeals court as Apple's attempt to overturn the ruling.
