Control Center is a great and fast way to access important settings in iOS 7, but it can be really annoying if you accidentally open it while playing a game or using an app.

Access within Apps iOS 7

iOS 7 allows you to easily open Control Center by swiping up from the bottom of your screen, which is the same motion a lot of games use for its touch based controls. This can cause a lot of headaches especially when playing endless runner titles, or other games that require you to swipe up to jump. Luckily Apple had enough foresight to offer an easy fix to this problem.

Evad3rs Pull Chinese TaiG App From Evasi0n 7

The evad3rs iOS 7 jailbreak has had a bit of a rocky launch. First there were rumors that someone close to the group had stolen the exploit and sold it to a private buyer, then soon after its release the jailbreak community accused the evad3rs of becoming greedy by partnering with the Chinese App Store TaiG.

The evad3rs quickly responded to all the rumors with a message posted on their website. In a letter addressed to the "Jailbreak Community," the evad3rs have made it clear that users were "not locked into TaiG" and could still install Cydia. The evad3rs also added that they had never shared their exploits with TaiG's owners, and that preventing piracy is extremely important to them. This all lead to pod2g announcing on Twitter today, that the evad3rs had decided to "remotely disable the default installation of TaiG in China for further investigations on the piracy issue."

How to Check the Time Stamp of a Text Message in iOS 7

One of the more simple but useful features Apple included in iOS 7 is the ability to see a time stamp for every text message sent or received. Previously you had to guess when someone sent you a message because Apple did not include a time stamp for each individual text. This was incredibly annoying for various and obvious reasons, but now it is incredibly easy to see what time someone contacted you thanks to Apple's latest OS.
