Todays petit post is a simple tip that works on many applications on the iPad & iPhone, yet many users I encounter are not aware of how to immediately scroll to the top of the page of their applications.
The screenshots above illustrate best — tapping the top of the application bar will rapidly move your scroll bar to the top of the page, all accomplished without making you appear that you are trying to dig through your touch screen with your finger tips.
The screenshots show Safari iPad & iPhone examples, but this same trick works in many apps including Pages, Notes, eBook readers and countless others.
