a few questions about iOS7

so, anyway, I was wondering if there's a built-in flashlight app in iOS7, and if Siri can activate more apps now. Thanks!

I am not sure if people are familiar with this app called the Automator on the MacBooks, but I use it a lot on my MBP. It basically let's you set up macros very easily. If they were able to integrate that app into iOS7 and add custom speech recognition.. Life would be so amazing.

I wouldn't go that far and say killer, but yes it is a sweet feature.

No, its in the new control center, you swipe up from the bottom, regardless what app or lock screen your on and its there. Takes less than a second to get to. Using Siri to turn it on, if it we possible, would take about 10 times as long.

that's a shame. I was hoping to be able to say "let there be light!" and it would fire up the flashlight app..
