    Tap & Swipe

    Anyone else notice that in ios 4, if you quickly tap them swipe, it will select the text you just swiped, no long press needed. It's basically a shortcut to select text. Kinda cool. Never noticed this in prior iPhone OSes if it was there.

    I was trying this out but couldn't get it to work.
    Then I found that you have to DOUBLE TAP QUICKLY then drag and then it will work.

    Thanks for the tip,

    From your iPhone Safari favorite... There is iPhone User Guide ... In the Basics - Editing - Cut, Copy, and Paste

    Select text: Tap the insertion point to display the selection buttons. Tap Select to select the adjacent word or tap Select All to select all text. When you’re typing, you can also double-tap to select a word. In read-only documents, such as webpages, or email or text messages you’ve received, touch and hold to select a word.

    Drag the grab points to select more or less text.
