    I think it'd be cool if we kept a centralized list of all apps that use iOS 8 widget features and extensibility.

    I just downloaded iOS 8 GM and it seems none of my apps have been updated to take advantage of these API's.

    But lets keep a list of them when they do. With a short description of what the widget or extensibility feature is and possibly a screenshot :D

    Widgets:

    ESPN SportsCenter
    Game scores.

    Extensibility:

    VSCO Cam
    VSCO photo editing within the Photos app.

    1Password
    Safari and app integration.

    On Apple.com/live when you look at the highlights from the videos, there's a photo of Day One as a widget that shows a graph of how much you write and photos you've taken in the past.

    Been looking for a list of all iOS 8 extension announcements / leaks, so really like this idea of a mega-thread for extensions... Here's a few more:

    Numerous
    Numbers for everything you do

    Microsoft OneNote
    Share extension to send stuff to OneNote (like Evernote)

    SwiftKey
    Keyboard extension

    I think this should probably be a Wiki post?

    How do you enable these? I have IOS 8 GM and sportscenter installed but can't figure it out.

    Might have to wait until the app updates.

    Didn't think it'd be available until after iOS 8 is released?

    Is it already possible to use the VSCOcam filters inside the Photos app?
