If you're like me, reorganize your home screen by a few months. But instead of dragging the old icons and releasing them on the "Delete" button upstairs, there's a much faster, and quite frankly, more satisfying way to do it.
To try it, after long pressing the app icon, tilt it up as if you were throwing it away. Quickly pull up and release, then the app is removed from your home page. Not only is this gesture easier to perform, it reduces the risk of you losing your phone, especially when using larger devices.
