Apple’s new 3D Touch technology that was introduced with the latest iPhone 6S and 6S Plus is slowly receiving support from the many developers who make this iOS platform what it is.

On Thursday, popular iOS apps Flickr and Mobile Mouse Remote were the latest members of this platform to come aboard.

Flickr

The latest version of Flickr 4.0.6 for iOS comes in with support for the latest iOS 9 in addition to the operating system’s much hyped 3D Touch technology. If you own an iPhone that runs on this current Apple OS, you will now be able to preview photos, notifications, people and many other things with a simple light press.

In addition, there is a new way of doing things when previewing photos in camera roll as users can now move a finger right or left to quickly check through other photos. To pop it to full screen, just press a little harder on the selected photo.

Since the new Flickr for iOS comes with support for the latest iOS 9, it has also been equipped with support for 3D Touch which adds ability to quickly jump to common functionalities right from the app’s home screen icon. There are additional features for the users of other iOS 9 devices, apart from iPhone 6S, as Flicker has also added Spotlight Search support, where the users can easily find groups, albums as well as recently viewed items without needing to open the app.

Users of this application also get support for universal links when the app is open directly rather than have to go through Safari as with the previous version.

Mobile Mouse Remote

Thursday also saw a new version of Mobile Mouse Remote 3.3.4 come into play. The $1.99 app is now compatible with iOS 9 as well as quick access to common features via a firm press of the icon on the home screen.

The latest version of Mobile Mouse Remote for iOS is also able to turn the display of your iPhone to a pressure-sensitive trackpad. This allows the users to make use of this device in the same way they made use of the pressure-sensitive Force Touch trackpad that comes with the latest MacBook models.

The added 3D Touch technology also features a glow that responds to touch pressure. When using the Mouse Remote app switcher, pushing down on the icon will pop up a menu with more options. In addition, this support allows pressure-sensitive drawing without needing a pressure-sensitive stylus. In the latest update, it is possible to draw anything using a finger or a plain stylus on OS X.
