    I honestly don't think I have used it once, more of a gimmick to me than anything. I can see some useful uses of it but overall..blah

    its not a gimmick if you know how to use it.. its biggest application is messages and calls... i can quickly jump to a message or a call card so easily. love it

    they do need to figure out more ways to use it

    i think you should be able to adjust settings on certain apps
    ie. force touch on messages brings up a select few contacts (same with 'phone' app)

    I don't think it will be very big this year, but if they find more uses for it in the iPhone 7, then I can see more people using it by then.

    I've used it a few times but waiting for more apps take advantage of the 3D Touch. I know once Facebook releases their update I will use it a lot.

    I use the peek feature quite a bit but the 'pop' feels like I'm going to damage the screen, or make the casing where it joins the phone body loose/click over time so I avoid doing it.

    I completely LOVE 3d Touch - it's definitely the next big thing.

    The biggest part I have been using is the keyboard becoming a track pad. I like the quick cursor feature for editing, its faster than trying to land in just the right spot when dragging over text. I have tried to incorporate the feature with other apps but really have not found it to be way faster yet. If iOS 9 had not added a link in the top left to go back to the previous application I would peek more often but with an easy way to return to where I was its not been a big deal to go ahead and just follow a link with a tap.

    I use it solely for app switcher. It's awesome for single hand usage.

    So far I am using it for quickly searching an app in the app store, multitasking, and cursor movement.

    Previewing Safari tabs has been less useful than I thought it would be, because of how little information I can actually see.

    I have only really used it to test out 3D touch, I have not really used it as a tool yet if I am honest

    I use it for calendar events, phone calls/facetime, and must-tasking. I personally find it useless in messages and email.

    Oh and the cursor.

    My three most frequent uses so far are on the keyboard to freely move the cursor around for an edit, left side of screen in lieu of a home button double tap and a peek into mail maybe followed by a swipe to trash.

    I love the track pad feature. The app switching feature seems like it could be handy but it needs refining. It's too hard to activate, IMO.

    I use it for multitasking all the time; and the other swipe to go back to the last app after a press. :)

    I didn't expect to ever care about it. I use it for app switching all the time. Small learning curve, but now it's great.

    I use it quite a bit to open the multitasking cards. Occasionally I use it for shortcuts to apps, but there are far too few that have added that functionality for me to be able to remember to use it regularly. I have to consciously think about using it that way, where using 3D Touch to open the app switcher is pretty much ingrained for me at this point. I don't use the peek and pop too much yet, to be honest.
