    I'm curious to see what other people would like to see when 3D Touching an app icon. Here's the options I want:

    Phone: straight to dialer option, and a redial option
    Messages: any options at all! 3 contacts show randomly, and aren't most recent. Favoriting would be a big improvement.
    Clock: Turn on a specific alarm
    Weather: a forecast of sorts would be nice
    Calendar: showing the next event
    Reminders: go-to a specific list
    Settings: anything would be an improvement
    Music: play a playlist
    Podcast: set favorites
    Netflix: resume a show

    I would just like to be given options to change in settings. Afaik it's take what Apple gives you or nothing.

    I like all of your suggestions; however
    In my experience it does this already.

    Here are a few of mine:

    Remote: Select a device and go straight to the controls for it (e.g. Living Room or Bedroom)
    App Store: Option to go straight to Updates.
    iCloud Drive: List top three most recently updated folders.

    Oh wow! ZombiePete coming through fixing problems!

    I guess I only tried it after my day ended. Just tested this and it does exactly what I wanted.

    The App Store update option would be a major improvement.

    I really can't wait to see what we will be able to do in the future. I already feel natural 3D Touching everything.

    The other thing I want, and this is just being nit picky, is Apple to change the name back to force touch. I have to correct myself every damn time I say it wrong.

    I looked up that website only to realize it was a typo. I thought you had stumbled on an alarm app gold mine.

    Settings: A wifi toggle would be nice
    Messages: A "peek" into the most recent message

    I also really wish that when you "peek" into your messages it would remove the notification. It defeats the purpose of peek IMO since I still have to enter the message to get the notification to clear.

    Doesn't the Control Center already have a wifi toggle? Or are you referring to something else?

    If I were going to put a 3D Touch menu in settings, I would have shortcuts to common functions (not already managed in Control Center, personally) like the Battery and Notification settings screens.
