One little known iOS gesture

I don’t know how many people know about this little gesture in iOS, but I found this accidentally while trying to mimic the iOS5 style pull down gesture for notifications .  

When in a particular app, swipe down from the time on the status bar to the center title on the blue(title) bar in an app.

For example when in the settings app, if you are in Settings > General, swipe down slowly starting from the time on status bar till the point where the word General is written.  The thing with this gesture is that it activates the function of the left side button. So in messages app’s main screen, you would end up activating the edit function for the messages. Works across any app in iOS.
