kitkat

When writing an Android app, one useful feature that developers use when dealing with a potentially long list of options is fast scrolling. First introduced in Android 1.5/Cupcake, this functionality allows a user to grab the scrollbar and drag it down to scroll section-by-section, rather than item-by-item. It appears, however, that the KitKat implementation of this classic Android feature has introduced a bug which is driving some developers crazy.
