iOS8 home button double-tap (not double-click)

Chris Connelly asked:

iOS8 introduced double-tap (not double-click) on the home button to shift the entire screen down. Has anyone researched/tested the usage of such a feature?

Jason Yeaman answered:

It's called reachability.

Its a solution for one handed operation.

Chris Connelly replied:

It seems like a reasonable compromise, I was more curious what % of users have discovered the feature even exists. It seemingly has a low level discoverability. Thanks for chiming in.
