General Scroll to top of page (like iOS)

    I have a note 3 on preorder and am curious if there is an easy way to scroll to the top of the page/app like there is on my iPhone. Pretty much any stock or 3rd party app lets you just tap the top of the screen (near the clock) and it scrolls all the way to the top. Is there any gesture or app that will allow me to do this on my note 3? Not looking for one specific browser that does this but more a universal system control. Thanks!

    So you wanting like a shortcut menu on apps or browser to take you back to the top of the page correct? If that's correct I am not aware of a feature on the stock settings for android. I normally just swipe and go. You can always try 3rd party apps for something like that.

    I am not aware of any setting. You can try a third party tho.

    The HTC ONE has a similar feature in BLINKFEED.

    Not in the individual articles,but,in the list/tiles of articles.Tap & the top of the screen & it returns to the top of the page:

    Any way to go to top of Blink Feed from the bottom, Long scroll back. - Android Forums at AndroidCentral.com

    If there is no such app available in the GOOGLE PLAY STORE,a nice opportunity exists for a developer.

    EDIT:

    If this doesn't do it for you,perhaps the developer woulde open to suggestions:

    There is the Touchwiz gesture, Back To Top that auto-scrolls when you tap the top of the phone. I currently have a GS3 and it really didn't work that well. I disabled it the first week I had the phone. Maybe it will be better on the N3.

    On my GS3 it is called "Double Tap to Top", not Back to Top like I said earlier. Sorry about that.

    Looking fwd to it,as I imagine it's/it'll be available on the GN3.

    I use a similar feature in BLINKFEED on the HTC ONE,hope that it's at least enabled on the stock browser & FLIPBOARD.
