iOS 7 and Otterboxcase

I have an Otterbox case on my iPhone 5. Noticed that the control center and other features that require swiping in a very difficult to use because of the raised thing.

Hopefully Apple can tweak this somehow.

I don't think apple is going to change the design of the OS to accommodate a case maker

Guess I'll be shopping for a new case. Been thinking about doing it anyway since moving icons around is a pain in the butt.

I figured out how to pull up the control center no problem!! The trick is to run your finger down the slant of the actual case then onto the screen. Just pretend your finger is a person going down a slide onto the screen lol. I was just as frustrated with the case but I swear this works every time!!! Someone try it and back me up here!!!
