The Trick

When you have scrolled down to an app window and need to get back to the top of the screen, just double tap on the top of the window where all your notification information is i.e. Your carrier, the time and battery level. Doing this in any app, other than gaming ones or ones the hide the notification bar, will quickly scroll to the top of the current window as fast as possible.

Tip: Do not worry to much about hitting the precise center of the notification bar. As long as your finger double taps the notification bar.


This is such a time saver in some apps depending on how far down you have gone. Unfortunately Android crew, I couldn’t find the equivalent of this feature on my device.
