    I love this feature. I hold my phone in my right hand and support the bottom with my pinkie, support the back with my fingers and type with my thumb. I double tap the home button regularly to get to the top screen items.

    Do you use it?

    Not really. I use 2 hands now. I don't attempt to do one hand use while driving.

    I tested it once I bought the phone to confirm it works and haven't used it since!

    I use it all the time. It makes the iPhone 6 the perfect phone for me. The size I love but with reachability it makes it so I can still use the thing with one hand which for me is really important.

    I've been using it in here and it keeps going back to full screen. (I'm in your app). Is this normal?

    I find myself using it more than I thought I would, works quite effectively

    It is not just you. I am assuming because you're going to different pages/threads within the app, therefore it doesn't know if you want to stay in reachability.

    Every time I try to use it, it shows the mini screens of all my apps that are running. I can never get it to work and I have it turned on.

    Don't actually press down on the home button twice. All you have to do is just tap the home button twice.
