IOS 7 interactivePopGestureRecognizer is freezing app

I have strange bug and i don't know how catch this problem. In my app I have different controllers. When I push controller1 to navigation controller and swipe to back, all works good. But, if I push navigation controller1, and into controller1 push controller2 and try to swipe to back - I get a frozen application. If go back through back button - all works fine.

How can I catch my problem???

I had similar problem with freezing interface when using swipe-to-pop gesture. In my case the problem was in controller1.viewDidAppear I was disabling swipe gesture: self.navigationController.interactivePopGestureRecognizer.enabled = NO. So when user started to swipe back from contorller2, controller1.viewDidAppear was triggered and gesture was disabled, right during it's work.

I solved this by setting self.navigationController.interactivePopGestureRecognizer.delegate = self in controller1 and implementing gestureRecognizerShouldBegin:, instead of disabling gesture recognizer:

- (BOOL)gestureRecognizerShouldBegin:(UIGestureRecognizer *)gestureRecognizer {
    if ([self.navigationController respondsToSelector:@selector(interactivePopGestureRecognizer)] &&
            gestureRecognizer == self.navigationController.interactivePopGestureRecognizer) {
        return NO;
    return YES;
