    Default Quick Scroll to Top Feature? - And Other Quick Questions

    Hello all. I have just made the switch from my iPhone 4 to Galaxy S4. Wanted a change, and have heard nothing but good things about Android, so I said "why not" and went for it. I am just finding some things hard to get used to (which I expected).

    One, on the iPhone there is a feature where you tap the top of the screen, and it quickly takes you to the top of whatever page you were looking at (whether it be texts, emails, web pages, etc.). Is there a similiar feature on the GS4 that I can use to do this?

    Secondly, is there a back/forward button for the internet explorer (I couldnt find it either Chrome or the Samsung explorer).

    And one last question. Ive tried to find what Apps are must-haves for the android, and all I have really found was to use an anti-virus app on the phone. Is there anything else any of you guys would recommend to use that you think really make the phone much better (such as anti-virus).

    Thank you for any help!

    EDIT: Might as well throw this one in too. I am reading a lot about how it is really useful to buy a spare battery or upgrade it. This is something that I find interesting and cool, but I cant seem to find where you would do this at? I googled Galaxy S4 batteries and could not find anything. (I dont plan on doing this right away, as my battery is obviously brand new, but would be nice to know for the future.)

    on chrome hit the phone menu and at the top there is back/forward
    settings ...motion. included double tap to top

    i would forgo av it will suck the life out of phone and battery. its not windows. careful selection of games used and no porn sites and you will be fine. both are trouble

    Diagonal swipe from bottom to top to scroll up to the top and from top to bottom to scroll to the bottom of the page.

    I have no idea what you two are talking about, neither of those things do anything for me.

    one of the things I've always dreaded with touchscreen devices was the jump to top/bottom of pages BlackBerry conveniently did with shortcut keys. still new to Android and the only way I've gotten to duplicate this feature was rooting the device and using an app called 'One Click Scroll'. https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...oneclickscroll
