Want to quit more than one app? Use two fingers. It just works.
Those who are accustomed to iOS6 might find themselves lost when it comes to closing their Apps down from the multitasking screen. Like all things to do with Apple, it’s simple. Alls you have to do is swipe the App upwards and it disappears. It will no longer be working in the background.
Just like in the picture, there’s no more need for the little red bubbles above the Apps. Just double tap your Home Button and BOOM!

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!
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.
THE WORLDS MOST DEVILISHLY ADDICTIVE DEFENCE GAME
I have been playing this game since it’s release at the beginning of June and since then it’s consumed nearly all of my free time, in fact, i think on some occasions I made time to play the game.
Gameplay – the game consists of multiple levels situated on a map. The goal is to protect your land from dragons, man-eating plants and ghastly denizens of the underworld. You have bases on each level to build 4 towers of your choice, either a mage, archer, soldiers or artillery. Each with their own unique upgrades and abilities, you tactically place them to prevent any enemies passing through your land. It may sound easy but from experience, it’s one hard son of a bitch when it gets going.
The first level starts off like most other first levels, the basics, you get to know how the game works, what you have to do and what not to do to succeed. Just like life, you learn as you go along. But this time with magic stuff and lots of bombs!
I bought the app for £2.99, the best £2.99 i have ever spent. Everything about the game is beautiful, the voiceovers of the characters gives it character and humour, the big bosses are really cool too, i found myself getting all excited when they’d show up to my surprise.
Our first game to receive 5 out of 5 taps! Well done IronHide!
Well, it’s a dull, rainy day here today, I have a few spare hours at my disposal, a few hours I thought I’d spend with you. At the beginning, I promised myself that I would fully commit myself to this blog, a way for me to showcase some creativity or skill whilst the holidays surrounded me and London was 300 miles away. It pains me to say that i failed myself, and you guys on that promise. A lot has happened since then, both personally and professionally and I feel right now at this moment, a new wave of determination to make this blog a real life thing for me has taken over, a want, a need, to make it maybe one day, a job.
Writing has always been an interest for me, I am passionate about technology and design and was luckily blessed with good taste for both, so the only natural thing for me to do is this. A blog. For you to take in my opinion, maybe argue with it, challenge it or even influence your own. Whatever it does, just reading it will make my day, the other 3 are all bonuses.
Whilst it may seem that my attention has been focused entirely on everything but this blog and the lack of posts are there to back that up yes, but, you have always been there in the back of my mind, time my friend, it’s what’s been against us. Over the last couple of weeks I have been downloading new apps, paid and free, and some old apps that have been updated with new features and even complete redesigns. With that in mind, I will be bringing to you my reviews and thoughts on all that Tap This App has to say about them. Here are just a few of the apps you will be reading about real soon.
Stay tuned, I pinky promise you that you have not been forgotten about. My time is now in your hands.
