Apple iOS 7.1 Update Adds CarPlay, Fixes 'White Screen of Death'

Perchance, is anybody else getting a weird glitch/bug/annoyance with GC - where it will randomly seem like it has signed you out mid-game, and every second, third or fourth time opening the app, just present you with a blank white screen - with the only fix being to either ignore GC (no achievements will unlock nor scores upload though) or force reset?

This has only been happening since iOS 7.1 - hence the post to THIS thread. Sorry if wrong!

Annoys me. iPhone 5s; 7.1.

My only gripe about the update is that my battery life seems a little worse than before. Anybody experiencing the same thing?
This is a problem I've noticed as well.

Yes, battery life is substantially worse. However I improved it by turning off Push email (which honestly I don't really like anyway - most of what I get is junk mail)! I also turned off background updates for apps I don't care about. Together those seemed to improve the battery life. There must be a bug with push or background updates.

And on the other hand, my iPhone 4 is so much more responsive with 7.1. Totally worth the trouble.
