    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.

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

    Attachment 66774

    It now looks really good! Can't wait for the other apps.
    That makes me wonder though. It says updated for the iPhone 6...does that mean it isn't technically optimized for the 6+ screen and resolution? Anyone able to confirm how the app looks on the 6+?

    Two reasons I am concerned and haven't updated to a new iPhone yet is because I am a fitness junkie and I am not sure if the 6+ is too big of a phone to go on runs with and workout with (anyone have any insight or feedback on this?) and secondly the fact that I am not 100% sure that all developers will develop their apps to take advantage of the 6+ screen. Not that I want the landscape mode with two scrolling screens, but at least apps that are optimized to take advantage of the beautiful 6+ display!

    the problem is also that Apple updated the developer's iTunes Connect and surely messed it up! Lots of bugs! And because all the developers need to update, and they only have like 40 reviewers I read online who do the App reviews.... some of my app updates have been sitting "In Review" status for 4-7 days, when it used to be HOURS from In Review to Ready for Sale. Sometimes, we'll upload updates and they won't even APPEAR in the account to be attached for hours. As a developer, I've already griped to Apple directly and tweeted about it, lol. Steve Jobs is rolling in his grave!!

    It is optimized for iPhone 6 Plus, don't worry. Most people call the 6 Plus as iPhone 6.

    also, from a developer's point of view, YES i want to update all my apps because 1 - it's messed up a lot of our buttons, and i don't like things to look ugly either! and 2 - they've added new screen sizes so we have to put new screenshots and whatnot. so yes, i believe most apps that are still maintained by their devs WILL update, always. to fit apple's latest devices.

    Instagram just got its second update after iOS 8 and still it's not compatible with iPhone 6, or 6 Plus! Apparently the team behind Instagram app for iOS is finding the app ok!

    That is nuts. Especially for a popular app and a company that has the time and resources to update it.

    That's what happens when you are owned by a company like Facebook. Facebook, I heard, pushed out version 15.0 this week with no iPhone 6 support.

    Contact the developers about the situation or just deal with being an early adopter of a product.

    Meanwhile, Tweetbot got iPhone 6(Plus) support today, interactive notifications, and 1password extensibility.

    So, to summarize: Tweetbot rocks. Facebook (and all it’s holdings) sucks.

    also is it just me...or does that not look as "terribly awful" as OP is suggesting?
    It's the new fad design no one can read or see. I emailed the developer for the app, Facetune, because I could not read it. Their reply referred to it as the "New Design Sensibilities". So washed out very light gray printed text is the big thing. I had another word for it, but I kept it to myself.

    It has been 4-7 days for review for awhile. Its 10+ right now due to large amount of updates. I have seen hours as a fluke.

    Also Apple was not just hiding the two new phone sizes they are also telling devs to get used to other resolutions in the future so apps will be ready for any new device launches and minimizing feedback from users as in this discussion.

    I know well there is nothing that iMore can do regarding the forum apps as its provided by Tapatalk and won't be updated till Tapatalk update theirs, but the blog app is totally their own as far as I know, not sure what they are waiting for too.

    Maybe they're not waiting. Maybe they're developing. As are plenty of other developers. To insinuate that app developers are sitting on their hands doing nothing only helps to p*ss them off.

    You ask for Apple to encourage developers yet you're discouraging them with these remarks.

    This. This, this, this!

    Stop complaining about developers not updating your app in a timely manner. If you don't like the way Facebook looks, browse on Safari for the time being.

    Past that, put your phone down, go outside, and do something productive instead of griping on a web forum about how your favorite app hasn't been updated yet.

    Coding is not easy. It's not like Facebook has multiple mobile platforms to support, or a website to run.

    I do agree. Having the apps not optimized for the larger screens (it's an issue with the 6, too) isn't the best experience but at least they work and function. I don't mind the zoom as much as the two black bars on my apps when I waited for them to update for the iPhone 5.

    Be patient, submit feedback, and they'll come along when they're ready.
