iOS 7 Control Center

My favorite new feature in iOS 7 is the new Control Center. To activate it, swipe up from off the bottom of the screen (your finger must start off the screen, on or near the home button). This can be done from anywhere as long as the screen is turned on. The lock screen, the home screen, or from within an app. It allows you to access a variety of things quickly. To close Control Center simply grab the chevron at the top and pull the shade down.
