Check out the video above to see how Vyclone works.
Vyclone isn’t exactly a new app, but it’s going to be even more amazing on an iPhone with a bigger screen. Vyclone is also worth knowing about because it was created by Joe Sumner, frontman of the band Fiction Plane and the son of rock legend Sting.
Vyclone is a way of creating immersive, comprehensive videos. You can use this app to film a large event, such as a concert, and intercut your footage with footage taken by other people who were at the same event. It’s a cool way to re-experience an event from multiple points of view, and create a memorable “highlight reel” of concerts, sporting events, weddings, dances, graduation ceremonies, birthdays, and more. The bigger screen of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will be great for enjoying these types of videos.

Billed as “The Little Keyboard for Big Fingers,” Minuum is ideal for people who are frustrated by both autocorrect and iOS 8’s innate ability to “guess” what word you’ll be typing next. The best part of this app is arguably mini mode, which lets you keep typing in the app that you’re in, but also allows you to see more of that app while you type. Typing data is stored locally on your device, with Minuum promising “We do not collect typing data remotely and will not do so without first asking you.”
