    Try this:

    In any app in iOS5, tap and hold in any paragraph break or other white space in the center of the page until it brings up the circular magnifying window, then drag your finger to either edge of the page. This will bring up the option to cut, copy, or select all.

    It works for some people, not for others, but it works for me.

    Interesting. I hadn't noticed the change. The above works for me though. Strange that it doesn't work for everyone.
