    I am sure that isn't the reason because Instagram, and Facebook look really bad.
    The update for the 6+ of FB and IG may not be a priority to Facebook.
    Evernote being a smaller company was able to jump right on it.
    Facebook being so huge things get lost in the shuffle.

    also is it just me...or does that not look as "terribly awful" as OP is suggesting?
    I didn't say Evernote looks bad. Actually it's the best app on my 6 Plus in the mean time.

    Facebook Messenger got updated, finally Facebook is aware of how ugly their apps are on the 6 Plus!

    I'm thinking of it this way.....we have a lot to look forward to! As many of the apps right now are just blown up versions of what they were before, once the updates are released, they will take full advantage of the new larger screen

    As others have said, the key is to just be patient. Iphone apps never had to deal with a screen this big before.

    Everything is Obama's fault; that socialist, communist, dictator, Muslim, nazi, Christian-hating, "not my" president

    Update: Twitter looks good after the latest update.

    Dude you need to relax and you don't know what you're talking about. The iPhone 6Plus and BB10 are not even remotely related. BB10 hasn't failed because of app resolution on their screens. Geez give me a break.

    I'm also eager to have updated apps. However, they've only known about the resolutions of the new devices since the 9th. I wouldn't think this is as trivial as the update from 4S to 5 (where the height was the only thing that changed - no need for completely changing all graphics in the app). Also, I imagine most devs will want to test their software on an actual device rather than rely solely on a simulator and theory. So, while I'm anxiously awaiting updates, I'm not ready to crucify the devs of apps which have not been updated yet. They need time to update the apps, and I'd rather they do it well than do it quickly.

    Also, we're dealing with two new resolutions (which potentially require two different sets of updated graphics and layouts) rather than just one.

    Guys, I remember in one of the last keynotes Apple said they will bring a new service I think in iOS 8 that would make it easier for developers to make a team of Beta testers. Is it ready yet, or still not released?

    Are you talking about TestFlight - the public facing app beta testing program? They’re working on launching it. But the developers have to make their stuff available to the program.

    Apple rolls out TestFlight beta testing app, reportedly preps iOS 8.0.1 for carriers

    Yep! That's exactly what I meant. I think this should make things much easier in future for developers to update their apps.

    This makes me wonder, why is Apple not encouraging developers to update their screen sizes? It shouldn't be even an option. They should force the developers by not allowing Xcode to package any apps with resolution lower than that of the 6 Plus.
    There's a huge difference between encouraging and forcing. I'm quite certain Apple is at least gently encouraging devs to take advantage of the higher resolution of the iPhone 6 Plus.

    There are some apps that are still not even optimized for the iPhone 5. One notable offender which immediately comes to mind is the TUAW app. I could understand people being upset at that, but it's way too soon to be upset at devs for not optimizing their apps for the iPhone 6 Plus yet. I'm sure a lot of devs out there don't have the resources to accomplish this feat so soon.

    The Reddit app as well is still only optimized for the 3.5" screen. Luckily here are of third party Reddit apps that are optimized for the 6/6P already.
