I got the 6 Plus because, bigger screen, I like the landscape feature, better battery life.

How will app optimisation work? Do you think it will work well, or will there be lots of blurry apps on the 6+?

I got the 6 because it fits my needs better. However, the 6+ is a beautiful device as well. I am not part of the "mine is better than yours" group. I think they are both really cool and bought the one that fits my needs.

I got the 6 Plus. Original reasons for doing so were for the larger, higher-res display for web browsing, larger battery because the one in my 4S sucks, and OIS because I love photography (and you know what Chase Jarvis says about cameras).

Since getting it, I've found that it delivers on all counts. For apps that haven't been 6 Plus-optimized yet, I'm also able to view them farther away from my eyes, which reduces eye strain.

You can also use zoomed mode under Settings > Display & Brightness to make everything a bit bigger so your eyes can relax more.
Concerning the 6 vs Plus debate, people who say "I win cause mine ...." kinda have a sucky attitude imho! It's not about which is better, it's about which is better FOR YOU and I personally prefer the bigger screen, OIS, battery life and landscape split screen. But I definitely get why people would want to have a more portable phone and like the smaller screen plus the thinner and lighter device. It's still a size upgrade from the 5s. Though I am not and I won't be one of those people I still accept their opinion. Other than people (not like Vladislav, that was a misunderstanding) who feel the need to pose as better than the other group. I could say "bigger screen hahah" but I wouldn't, cause it comes down to personal preference.

6 Plus. Bigger. Better battery. OIS in the camera. New landscape capable apps on the way. For my purposes it was the logical choice. It'll replace my iPad when I travel.

To me the only area where the six plus is too big is to wear it as my running armband. Everything else it is absolutely fine and brilliant.
