Android 5.0 Lollipop is a great release. It’ has improving usability with material design, given us quick access to our notifications on our home screen, and more.

Scroll to the Top by Tapping Your Statusbar
Here at XDA Developers, we’ve written about many topics. However, one particular topic has become extremely popular. Of course, I’m talking about the Xposed Framework by XDA Recognized Developer rovo89. With Xposed, you can customize almost every element in Android—and I dare you to question the word “almost.”
One of the most popular Xposed developers around, XDA Senior Member MohammadAG, created yet another interesting module. This time, inspired by iOS, he added a feature to scroll to the top of a list by tapping on your status bar. It’s quite useful, especially while using the phone app, as sometimes the list can be really long. This module doesn’t yet work with all applications, like Google Chrome or some manufacturer-specific lists, but we believe that this will be fixed in upcoming releases. As this is an Xposed module, your device must be rooted and running a recent version of Xposed Framework.
Some iOS solutions seem to be pretty useful, and this module takes of their best and brings it to Android. If you would like to give it a shot, you should consider visiting the module thread and downloading the newest version of the module. You can also find the module in the Xposed repository.
