IUNLOCKYOURMIND
Super ACAAN
Telefoto
Handzoff
Photoprediction
Iforce
Ipredict Pro
Magic Draw
Ghost Card
Magic Tricks #1 and #3
Magic SMS 2
Social Media
Card Now

Mental Killer (don't use much now as it looks like an old app)

I have many more but those are the ones that I am really worrid about not being able to use.

Please help.

There are two separate issues to think about.

First is the size. If you rely on anything on screen to be a specific size, the iPhone 6 plus will upsize it to fit by rendering it at three times the resolution then scaling it down a bit (exactly 3x would be bigger than 5.5 inches). Personally, I think the iPhone 6 (not the plus) isn't that much of a difference that anyone will notice a size difference, but I guess we will see when it comes out.

The second issue has nothing to do with the phone but could get blamed on the phone: iOS 8. Most apps work fine, but there may be glitches. For example, my own app had a glitch where a label crept around the screen slowly on iOS 8 but worked fine on iOS 7. So expect most developers to update their apps in the weeks following the iOS 8 release.

Cheers,
Scott

I can't speak for all of those but mine (Ghost Card) technically works but due to the increased screen size an update will be need to make it look right. Apple only recently released the developer kit with the specs we need to code, so it won't be ready on launch day (Friday). So you'll need to be patient for updates (which goes for all the apps on your list, and for that matter any app on your phone). They need to be coded, tested, submitted, and approved by apple. Could take a month or more but they are in the works.

Exactly. I'm working hard on a update for PhotoPrediction, but unfortunately it won't be ready on launch day. There are many things to adapt, and it deserves a special care.

The new version will be released as soon as possible. Stay tunned!
