Text selection
These tricks work well in the Notes app:

  • Tap a word twice to select the whole word.
  • Tap four times on a paragraph to select the whole paragraph.
  • Place one finger in the beginning of a desired selection and another finger at the end – hold for a while. The text between the two fingers is selected.
  • Tap twice in the beginning of desired selection and immediately start dragging pin to extend it. (don’t detach finger after second tap)

To undo edited text, shake the device, and then tap the “Undo”-button.
