This is a change to the transition that takes you to the Notification Center. Swiping down from the menubar makes the interface fall to the bottom of the screen, revealing the notifications in the background. To leave the notifications, you tap the interface at the bottom of the screen.

A disadvantage with this solution is that you loose the possibility to just peak at the latest notifications. That could possibly be remedied by placing the latest notifications at the top and not having the interface fall until after you release your finger.

What you gain is a more unique solution compared to Android, and something that is more inline with current iOS implementations such as the folders.

There has been a number of redesigns of the Notification Center after Apple revealed it in the WWDC keynote. Most change the linen texture into something else. I think the texture could be toned down a bit, but my gripe is that the linen texture is used inconsistently.

The linen texture has been used to denote that something is at the very bottom layer of the interface. For example, when you open a folder, the wallpaper separates to reveal the folder contents on a linen texture. Therefore, the Notification Center that slides out above the interface shouldn't really use the linen texture.
