    I dislike this "feature" very much. Is there a way to disable this?

    When you tap the status bar in almost any program, especially noticeable in web browsers, it jumps to the top of the page. Needless to say, this complicates multitasking a LOT as I constantly lose my place on a website when trying to launch backgrounder, which I have set to activate when I pull down from the status bar.

    Do you have a jailbroken iPad? If so, how do you set up your multitasking and task switching? I have it set to that holding the status bar brings up SBsettings and swiping down brings up the circuitous dock showing what is running. Both of these actions activate this annoying scroll to top feature.

    I like the scroll to the top feature and have not had any issues with it.
    I set my backgrounder enable/disable to be holding the home button for 3 seconds.
    Swipe menu bar brings up SBSettings.



    If setting these settings to the menubar causes you problems simply assign those actions to something else.


    and no the scroll to the top cant be turned off, its part of the iOS built in features.

    I mean I understand the need for the feature in an iPhone, but really on the ipads giant screen, how often is the feature necessary? In the iPod app when you are listing all songs, sure, but for most websites and other apps, seems unnecessary. Wish Apple would allow users to adjust settings for things like this.

    Col.bris summed it well. Either you love or hate the scroll back feature. I was one of those that didn't even know about it.. How many of you just learned about this feature????? :confused:

    I too love it and use it. Can't think of a reason off hand to disable it. It's not as if we are short of screen space to tap on. Wish there was down scroll equivalent sometimes.

    If I had a criticism of browsers on the iPad it would be of more about websites that sprinkle their pages with unnecessary links. With big fingers it's sometimes hard to scroll without accidentally hitting them. Tuaw I'm looking at yours......

    I think it's a great feature. It seems a bit harsh to complain that it conflicts with a Jailbreak app - after all Apple don't sanction them.

    Harsh? I want to customize my iPad to MY liking, not Apples. I don't care what Apple sanctions really, its not their iPad any longer, its mine.

    sigh.

    Just change how Backgrounder operates or deal with it.

    It's not a setting you can change. Simple.

    Unless they allow some changes through being jailbroken, it's going to stay that way.

    It seems you dislike the iPad features far more than you like them, you can always sell it and wait for the next tablet to come around, or try and draft up a positive list of suggestions to help change the iPad, rather than constantly putting it down in sugch a negative way.

    Just saying...

    Yeah dont get mad that an apple feature interferes with your jailbreak feature. You can deal with it or fix it.

    Like you say, its your ipad and you want to edit how it work, go right ahead and disable that feature. Your free to change it just like all the other people who have created the jailbreak apps that they have released to the public.

    you bought the apple iPad you broke it so live with it or go buy a netbook or something that you can break to suit your needs yes you own it like any other product you buy but that does not mean you can change everything you desire if you don't like it sell it simple answer

    Go build yourself your own computer then do what you want

    Putting it down? I was asking how to disable a feature that I don't like? Why do I either have to accept everything Apple does or hate the iPad? Why can't I love the iPad yet hate some of the choices Apple has made and want to change them? Its getting sickening to me to come on these forums asking for help and being told that I am wrong to want something changed and that even mentioning what I consider a flaw in the iPad means I should sell it and stop criticizing the godlike Apple Inc.

    Does anyone know of a forum where when you ask to modify a feature of iOS you aren't met with 30 people telling you how much they love the feature and that you are anti-Apple for wanting it changed?

    You were told that there is no way to disable that feature and we suggested that you assign the app gestures to something other than the status bar.

    Your the one that just wont give up on trying to find someone to tell you that you can disable that feature.

    Thats fine, there is no way to disable the feature at this point. I don't need everyone explaining how they like the feature and questioning my purchase for me because I want minor things tweaked. I think you are mistaken in your notion that I "won't give up on trying find someone to tell (me) that (I) can disable that feature". Go back and look through this thread.

    I wasn't trying to give you a hard time - on the contrary, it's your iPad and you can do what you like with it.

    However, Apple designed the iPad to meet a purpose, and have guidelines that are aimed at making sure everything works well together. If you choose to do something with it that it wasn't designed to do and have issues, I don't think you can fairly complain.

    Anyway, it looks as if someone has helped you out :)
