I updated my ipad 3 to ios 7.1 and everything is fine except multitasking. With reduce motion turned on if I double tap home to enter multitask screen is appears to lock up for about a second and then shows the app switcher. Choosing an app and again it appears to lock up for a second and then show the app. On the iphone5s it does the dissolve effect I expect.

What's weird is that dissolve effect works when launching an app from home screen. Is anyone else getting this? I tried rebooting a few times, both with reduce motion on and off and doesn't help. With reduce motion off then it animates normally. It's like it pauses to do the dissolve effect but doesn't for whatever reason. I'd mark this as a planned obsolescent thing but the dissolve effect still works when launching apps from home screen.

Can anyone else confirm if this is happening on theirs? I haven't done a full restore yet but I'm not going to do a restore over just this, especially if other people are having the same issue.

I can make a video of it if that would help but just imagine double clicking home, close your eyes for 1 second and then open them again and that's basically what's happening.

(edit) update: I tried "Reset all settings", only steps I did was go to settings > accessibility > reduce motion and turn it on. Still have issue
