At least that's the feeling I get about them, they don't feel "integrated" into iOS, the Notification Center menu appears out of nowhere, I wish you could actually pull down the Status bar, to make it feel like a drawer, like something(notifications) is hiding behind it. For full screen apps like games say, when you'd swipe down, the status bar would "pop up" there would be a pop up/on effect and then they'd drag it down. The animations going from notifications to apps feel, well, there are no animations at all, there are animations for multitasking IMO there should be for going to apps from notifications too. They could've also used this new menu to implement some features into into it, like: -SBSettings toggles -Spotlight search - IMO it would make spotlight search very useful cause it'd be available from basically anywhere -Even multitasking bar itself so you wouldn't have to wear out the home button by double tapping it all the time. They could've put a lot of functionality in this quickly accessible menu. Of course with an option to disable/hide all the above if you don't prefer it that way. It would be something like this... Notifications, as they are now, really feel like a bolt on to me TBH, like it was a last minute job.
