* Occasional posts will contain how-tos and/or hints for VERY new users of iPads, iPhones or Kindles. All new users welcome! Non-tech speak, not terribly detailed, just basic device-enhancing goodness. All part of this Very Beginner Series.

Any new iPhone/iPad user will soon find themselves loaded with apps. While some of those apps will be useful, you will probably find that others are not-so-good and you would like to get them OFF of your device. It’s very easy to do.
How to delete an app from your iPhone or iPad:
Hold your finger on the app that you want to remove from your device.
It will start to wiggle, and you will see an “x” in the corner of the icon.
Tap on the “x” and you will be given a message that asks if you are sure that you want to delete this app.
Once you tap “delete”, the app disappears. Poof!
FYI … it’s not gone forever. You bought it. You own it. If you ever want it back, just return to the iTunes store and download it again. Apple will remember that you already bought it, so you will download it without charge.
