Uninstalling iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad(?) apps is a simple thing to do. Just tap & hold any app's icon.
After a couple of seconds all of the apps on the screen will start to vibrate, shake, rattle & roll ...they'll also get an "X" icon on the corner of each app.
Tap that "X" on any app (or apps) that you want to remove.
A confirmation will pop up, tap "Delete".
When you're all done, exit the screen as you'd exit any other screen.
If anyone with an iPad can confirm this is how it is also done so we can update this, please do.
