Move to Top Shortcut in iPhone

On an iPhone, flicking all the way back up to the top of a long Web page can be a real drag. Instead, a single tap on the status bar moves you to the top of a page. (The status bar is where the clock is.) This tip also works in other apps, like Mail, Contacts, etc.

Beware of this upgarde. I downloaded it, and it wigged out in every way imaginable: repeating error messages that required a force quit, crashes, and much more.
Curious, Kirk. I've worked all day with it yesterday and the day before, no such bad luck. Actually, while some versions have been a bit prone to crashing compared to others, I've always found GC to be a stable and well-behaved app (I've been using it since OS 7.5). Would you care to share with us what you were doing when this happened, or, at least write to the programmer (Thorsten Lemke): he's very responsive to his users' comments and requests for help.
