  1. Open a twitter client, or a facebook client, or whatever that has long-long list of useful things like a long list of contacts in non-primary language in the people app.

  2. Read-read-read and three hundreds tweets down you realize, it takes a minute to swipe back to get to the top and newest tweets. This problem exists on all platforms, yet on Sailfish it is amplified even more, because the Pulley Menu is accessible in the top of the list only (unless you use header or elsehow break the current view a'la Browser toolbar or Maps/Photos splitting screen on first tap).

iOS solves it by providing a standard way for scrolling up: tap on app title, and list is scrolled to the top instantly.

I am not sure what would be the appropriate way for Sailfish, but I would really like it to be decided by Jolla and recommended/enforced as a single proper standard way for users to get used to.

A sample solution could be to follow Pocket app ( http://getpocket.com ) for iOS/Android. They show title bar when user scrolls a little up and hide it back when user scrolls down. Then you can click on title for fast scrolling up. What do you think?

P.S. IMHO this question is noticeably different from https://together.jolla.com/question/1565/scrolling-for-long-lists-unpractical/ as scrolling to the very top is particularly important case
