    I haven't been able to find a quick way to jump up to the top of pages that I've scrolled far down on. Is there a quick button that jumps up there I've missed? I hate having to "flick" my fingers 20x just to get to the top of the page again.

    All you have to do is touch the top bar in safari and it will jump to the top of the page, not sure about other apps.

    I wish there was an easy way to scroll to the bottom of a page too.

    You can get a bookmarklet for that. Not particularly user-friendly but there you go!

    Thanks, but ya, I'm more interested in other apps I guess like Twitterific. You would think they would have something built-in.

    i stumbled across how to snap to the top from long scrolls and posted a thread about it the other day. Touch anywhere on the very top of the browser and that will do the trick!

    Right, the thing is, developers have to enable that feature for each application (or actually for each scrollable view). And unfortunately, many don't. A jump to bottom gesture would be useful too (double tap the top bar?).

    Ya, you would think this would be easy. Double tap the top or bottom to go up/down. There are some extremely long posts on forums, etc. that I have to scroll through. :(
