poor responsiveness to swipe up

I have a new ipod touch 5th gen and installed ios 7- when I try to swipe up to access command center it is often non-responsive. It usually will take 2-5 swipes (sometimes it just takes one but it has taken as many as 22!). I have tried a reset (by shutting off and from settings) and a restore with no resolution. I assume this is neither normal nor common- is it?

There isn't an apple store nearby so I am thinking about returning to amazon for exchange. Is that what you would do or any other suggestions? Thanks.

22 swipes? Was your iPod responsive in the previous iOS? If it is then it's probably just iOS 7, you should also try some game apps or something to see if your touch screen is responsive to input/swipe. Don't be too hasty to do an exchange. Hopefully someone here has better suggestion and is able to help you out.

It is actually brand new and I did the ios update when I was setting it up so I never operated under ios 6. It seems to work normally in every other way except the swipe up from bottom to top (e.g. if screen is rotated horizontal, the swipe up works fine)

I'm having the same problem here on my iPhone 4s and it's because of the case that I have on it. The swipe up must really be influenced by your finger crossing over the border of the touch area on the bottom.

If I take the case off and swipe up, it triggers the command center with no difficulty.

I've also found that if I swipe up really fast a few times in a row while I have the case on, it seems to get the command center to activate as well... not the idea solution, but it beats having to take the case off every time or going without a case. I'd assume this is something that could be easily resolved with a software update.

Swipe up on 4S is very hit or miss.

I found it's also sensitive to the swipe speed.

issues with swipe up

I noticed the same issue with both my iPad4 and iPhone 5. It seems it is really low on the screen and since I have covers on both items, it is not so easy to get swipe to work.
