ios 7.1 is now faster especially with transition speeds between opening/closing apps, etc. However, I use assistive touch, and I find that the menus don't move aside quickly enough. So after selecting the desired option on AT, the menu window (a big one too) stays in the middle of the screen for like 2 full seconds before fading away. EDIT: the delay that I am addressing here is the 2 second delay that occurs right after you double tap the home icon inside the AT window to get to the Multi-tasking screen. All the other actions within AT are pretty much instantaneous. The same can be said about the Volume controls. When adjusting the volume with the hard buttons, I feel the volume windows stays too long in the way - blocking out your view to the apps. Maybe if the fade away time could be reduced, or there was an option to control how long Assistive Touch and Volume windows stay on the screen, they would be helpful.
