    What if in a game you need to swipe down from the top, wont that bring up the message center? Or even if you are reading a webpage and swipe down to move the page down, is that going to bring up the message center?

    A. You've confused iMessges with the Notification Center.
    B. Yes, it could ruin some games.

    Oh sorry you are right, I meant notification center, and I am surprised they did not think of this.
    Its a great idea but they should have just had the message center show up a different way

    You probably need to swipe from the status bar to activate it. If the status bar isn't visible, it may not launch.

    But I don't have it, so I don't know.

    I just wonder how it works with landscape games.

    hmm this is a great observation. cut the rope is a full screen app and obviously the notification center still came down. nice find.

    It messes with safari's quick scroll to the top thing. In landscape

    It doesn't mess with anything. I'm jailbroken and Have used this exact feature for a long time. I swipe down and Notified Pro shows me all my notifications. I'm sure if a game requres a swipe from the top to bottom then the game will supersede the notification list. it's not a big deal :)

    At first I was thinking, "So? We rarely put our fingers at the top of the screen during games."

    Then I considered landscape games, like games with d-pads or dual stick shooters. I wonder how this is handled.

    It could. I haven't seen a game where this could mess it up though.
