While writing text in almost any app, you can single-tap with two fingers to select an entire paragraph. This works in Mail, Notes, and most writing apps (Elements, Writing Kit, etc.) I’m trying.

It appears to be part of iOS 5’s native text editing features. I wager that unless an app is doing something custom, this should work just about anywhere.
