Gestures do navigate: page up, page down etc. It would make life much easier.

Navigating trough the code just using scrolling and searching is slow and somewhat tedious. Gestures or buttons for faster navigation would be very welcome. Page Up, Page Down, line begin, line end, etc... I would really like to see those !

I thought about using 2 fingers left and right to move the cursor one character instead of one word. This could be a replacement for the cursor keys found on a normal keyboard. You can move to a word boundary rather fast by just tapping on a word.
I'll try out some variations, but that's a great starting point!
A problem could be the new 4 and 5-finger multitasking gestures Apple is trying out in the iOS 4.3 beta...
The gestures interfered with scrolling and zooming: if you just slightly changed the distance of your fingers, the scroll view would interpret the gesture as a pinch-to-zoom-gesture. You also had to place the fingers for swipe gestures on the screen at exactly the same time or it would be interpreted as scrolling.
So, I had to remove this feature again because it really wasn't usable. I also found those gestures to be quite slow compared to a tap on a button.
I agree with Steven Lu, we have the same behavior for Command+Up / Down and Control+Up / Down, it would be good to have one set of keys replaced with page up / down action (Command + Up / Down ?)
