Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, Facebook Messenger, and Evernote Gain 3D Touch in iOS Updates

A couple of popular iOS apps have been getting updates for 3D Touch over the past few days, introducing the new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus feature into experiences like Facebook Messenger, Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, and Evernote.

Most recently, Facebook Messenger updated its iOS app with 3D Touch, letting users choose from a quick-select menu and jump directly into a message thread with the three most recent contacts that they have been chatting with, or create a new thread entirely. Along with a streamlined tweaking to contacts and some winter-themed stickers, that was the extent of Facebook Messenger's 52.0 update. Evernote's version update earlier in the week was similarly 3D Touch-focused, with Peek and Pop introduced on note lists and search results within the note-taking app.

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom for iPhone had a much larger spruce-up, with a new update that grants users direct access to the app's camera thanks to 3D Touch. Adobe further expanded 3D Touch's abilities to the inside of the app, granting users access to Peek and Pop when browsing their camera roll's grid view. The 2.1.0 update also brought about various usability improvements, iPad Pro support, and even a new Notification Center widget.

Recent reports in the 3D Touch field have suggested that Apple is working on a scalable version of the tech to fit screens as large as the iPad Pro, but it still may not make it to the iPad Air 3. The feature was one of the selling points of October's iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, granting users the first new input alternative since the original iPhone and fueling new software innovations like Live Photos.

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom for iPhone [Direct Link], Messenger [Direct Link], and Evernote [Direct Link] are all available on the App Store for free.

Personally I've become a big fan of 3D Touch. Didn't seem like much at first, but it's slowly getting better with more support. I always get really annoyed when I pick up my iPad and try to use it, but nothing happens... Hopefully they can figure it out soon enough and make the tech work for the bigger screens.

Seems like developers are having trouble trying to find a way to use 3D Touch.

Regarding FB messenger, 3D touch has actually been a feature for a few versions now (prior to todays 52.0 release). I'm not clear if you're indicating it was a new feature w/today's release or not(?)
