10 popular apps that already use the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus' 3D Touch feature
The 3D Touch built into the new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus is one of the most useful user experience additions that iOS has gotten over the course of its existence. Basically, 3D Touch enables two new gestures across the system: Peek and Pop. Peek corresponds to a slight press on the screen, while Pop is engaged when the user presses harder. Both cause various useful shortcuts, contextually related to the app, to appear on the Home screen.

You may not know it, but clever app developers were quick to catch up with Apple's new functionality and introduce useful 3D Touch gestures to their applications. We will now present you 10 popular apps that got a dose of the 3D Touch fun mere days after (or, in fact, the very same day!) the new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus launched.

When Apple does something new, it works the way it should. If there are quirks they are fixed very quickly. When Samsung adds a new gimmick it never works the way it should. If it is something the user wants, and is excited for the update to fix it? Well, you're going to have to buy the next generation s phone for that. Apple success keeps android fanboys awake at night, that makes me giggle.

Multi window, popup video, and floating windows were all gimmicks, that not only worked right, but are being copied.

You are talking about first party features, and this article is about third party supports. That's a huge difference.

Wait till more apps start using 3d touch. I can only see good things

This is why Samsung MUST use Tizen in their future flagship devices(when fully developed ofc)! That way apps can utilize better their innovations. With android they must wait till every other android OEM catches up!

That is a post of the day. I would love a big platform contender to enter the market and Samsung is probably the only mfgr that can do it. I hate that BB is on the way out, and Windows isn't envited to the party most of the time (I hate that too). Why does android have to eat up everything.

two words: open source.

Thank you, but it was a rhetorical question. But since we're in the subject: I think it's lazy that manufacturers are just smooching on freeware. If it wasn't for Apple, we'd literally have no choice.
