    widgets are missing (tap to tweet) etc...

    and when do they usually start adding in all the features that will be seen in the regular version? Like around beta 3 or so?

    It was probably removed because NC is alittle different now.

    They probably didn't have time to include it in this beta. You have to remember, they did all of this in 7 months. That's pretty awesome!
    I expect it to return over the beta period.

    Scott Forstall got fired in December, that's when Johnny Ive took over the UI.

    Same thing, if the UI hasn't been designed for the feature then they can't include the feature yet.

    I'm sure they had the features in mind anyway. Now that I think about it, all these changes would be hideous if forstall didn't leave. Ugh, imagine the control center with the skeumorphism ios

    I honestly believe Ive wiped the board clean and started from scratch. So even if there was a certain feature planned before he took over, it may or may not have made it in his version of iOS 7 because of all the work it would've required to make it look like the rest of the OS. That's one thing that iOS 7 does better than iOS6: consistent look across.
