tips

You searched, found nothing, you searched, you found nothing. It’s a horrible loop. iOS7 takes some getting used to. Don’t worry, Tap This App is here to help you, luckily for you, we have had the pleasure of working with the new OS for several months now.

Throughout today we will be gracing you with the answers you have been searching for. Today we will be your iOS7 God. You’re welcome!

6 notif 7 notif

First thing, I see a lot of searches for the Tweet and Facebook post buttons that were at the top of the Notification Center in iOS6. They allowed you to quickly post what was on your mind with a single swipe down from your iPod, iPad or iPhone. Now, they’re gone, so how can you post or tweet quickly in iOS7? Where did they go?

Harsh truth. They were trashed, thrown into the oblivion never to return. Let’s face it, they didn’t belong in Notification Center, they’re actions. They were out of context.

iOS7 does come with a new control center though, maybe this could be the new home for the quick posting buttons many of us probably never used. Maybe they will be there in the next update, we never know. However, they would fit perfectly, is a way, it’s about control. You control your Facebook, you control your Tweets and what better way to access them then through Control Center.

Need an alternative? Use Siri, simply say “post to Facebook” or “post to Twitter” and then dictate what you want to say. It’s incredibly fast, and if you’re in a situation where you can talk to your iPhone, iPod or iPad you’re sorted! A word of warning, not everyone wants to know what you Tweet though, so for you serial Tweeters, stick to using the App.

There you have it, you now know why Notification Center no longer has quick post updates.
