This is the iOS 7 messaging tweak you’ve been waiting for

Android has hundreds of terrific features but one of our favorites is quite simple: actionable notifications. This relatively new Android feature provides a series of actions alongside certain notifications. So instead of just tapping a notification to open the corresponding app, users can perform a variety of functions right from within the notification pane. Apple might have borrowed Android’s notification format starting with iOS 6, but unfortunately it hasn’t yet borrowed actionable notifications. With a new tweak, however, iOS 7 one-ups Android’s actionable messaging notifications and lets users respond to a text or iMessage from any screen. More →

Getting enough sleep is hugely important for our health, but we often overlook just how crucial it really is. Sleep helps improve our ability to learn, it speeds up our metabolism, it improves our mood, it promotes cardiovascular health and it even helps fight disease.

Finding a good option can be difficult, but it becomes significantly easier when one of the top-rated options becomes free for a limited time. More →

As is often the case, however, a creative developer working outside of Apple’s third-party app development restrictions has built an amazing iOS 7 multitasking interface that blows Apple’s efforts out of the water.
