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.

LaunchBar 5.2

Send Article to a Friend

Objective Development has released LaunchBar 5.2 with a vast number of improvements and fixes to the keyboard launching utility. You can now create calendar entries without iCal running as well as specify multiple alerts (separating each one with a space). It also offers improved performance with iTunes, including playback from large iTunes libraries, compatibility with iCloud remote tracks and iTunes Match, and improved detection of classical genres. The update improves the Recent Items list to include browsed folders, adds invoked text actions to the text input history for use in subsequent text actions, uses the Spotlight index for retrieving the locations of all installed applications, and retains the menu bar display of the currently active application when LaunchBar is opened via hotkey. The release also fixes placement of the LaunchBar window in full-screen mode, ensures the bar opens when switching to LaunchBar via Command-Tab, corrects an issue with displaying search results when the LaunchBar window is positioned at the bottom of the screen, and more. LaunchBar 5.2 now requires Mac OS X 10.6 or later (but LaunchBar 5.1 remains available for those running an older version of Mac OS X). ($35 new with a 20-percent discount for TidBITS members, free update, 2.1 MB, release notes)
