How to better navigate in text boxes

Hi All,

Does anyone know any better way to navigate through text boxes or even the address bar? For example, I use GoodReader a lot and have a beast of a time getting my cursed to the beginning of my address bar. The problem is when you click on the address bar (or any text box) that is where the cursor goes (obviously) but there is no easy way to move the cursor to a location in the text that cannot be seen (like the beginning of the address bar). If anybody has ideas or methods please share!

Hold down for a second or so and a magnifying glass will pop up. Keep your finger down and slide it along.

I also highly suggest downloading Tips and Tricks iPad edition, it teaches you all these things. Or you can read the manual, free for download in iBooks or it should also be a bookmark in Safari.
